Am   *Riff*   F   Em   x4 


Am                              F Em 
I'm a ghost and you all know it 
Am                                   F Em 
I'm singing songs and I ain't slowing 
Am                                             F Em 
It was a fragile thing and I goddamn dropped it 
Am                                             F G 
I picked the pieces up and put them in my pocket 
C                                  G          F 
And I ain't gonna try and win your heart this time 
C                                             G              F 
I've had space to think and I think that I've grown a little wiser 
C                                    G            F 
I'm looking for a new muse, you have only made me tired. 
C                                       G          F 
Call your bluff up on the telephone and jam-jar my blood 
C                           G       F 
This is my loss of limb, my loss of love 
C                                       G          F 
Call your bluff up on the telephone and jam-jar my blood 
C                           G       F 
This is my loss of limb, my loss of love 




It was so cold you could see both sets of ribs almost escaping your skin to fly south, 


F               G 
south until the springtime 


Your hips stood out like confidence, you were naked as a newborn in the snow and you  
wanted it so.  


       F                 G 
That's precisely how you wanted it 
Am 
And now your love is writing words on the wall  
                   F 
with the meat of a nectarine 
                G            F              G 
That she picked earlier that morning in the orchard 
Am  
And you are on the street, a chest of drawers free 
           F 
While the skeleton parade marches past you 
         G 
Carrying bird balloons 
         F             G 
They fly backwards and forwards 
Am                                             F    G 
The streets can be eerie, streets can be dreary 
Am  
It's as if leprosy, it landed on the moon 
       F                         Em         
And it cast a filthy glow in the world and in my room 

C                                G             F 
So how about I play the harp and you play that piano 
C                          G                F 
pull the curtains shut and nest like little sparrows 
C                     G F 
My limbs, my love are lost on you 
C                  G F 
My limbs, my love belong to you. 

*Riff* 

F 
Until we did 
And our breath caught 
       G 
and we looked up 
        F                   G 
and the stars, they were so still 
        F                   G 
and the stars, they were so still 
         F                   G 
Both our hearts, they were revealed 
     F                   G 
Our hearts, they were revealed 
                C           G  F 
And you were my friend 

C                           G       F 
This is my loss of love, my loss of limb 
You were my friend 
and now 

*Riff* 

Am                             F   Em 
I'm a ghost and you all know it 
Am                                    F   Em 
I'm singing songs and I ain't stopping 
Am                                    F   Em 
My hair grew long so I fucking cut it 
Am 
and when you looked away 
                                       F  G 
 I snuck those trimmings in your locket 
haha. 

Am F G x 3 
Em F G
