He comes for conversation, I comfort him sometimes

D5    D5addC#  Dsus4 Asus4 F   E            Asus4         (D5)
Comfort and consultation, he knows that's what he'll find

D5  D5addC#  Dsus4       Asus4  D5   D5addC#   Dsus4     Asus4
I bring him apples and cheeses, he brings me songs to play

D5    D5addC# Dsus4  Asus4  F E       Asus4
He sees me when he pleases, I see him in cafes

       D5                       Dsus4
And I only say, hello, and turn away before his lady knows

     D7sus4 Dsus4       Asus4
How much I want to see him

      D5                                  Dsus4
She removes him, like a ring to wash her hands

                           D7sus4 Dsus4   D
She only brings him out to show her friends

(n.c.)          D5 D5addC# Dsus4  D5 D5addC# Dsus4
I want to free him

Secrets and sharing soda, that's how our time began
Love is a story told to a friend, it's secondhand
But I'll listen to his questions, I'll give my answers when they're found
He says she keeps him guessing, but I know she keeps him down
She speaks in sorry sentences, miraculous repentances
I don't believe her
Tomorrow he will come to me and speak his sorrow endlessly 
And ask me why
Why can't I leave her?


He comes for conversation, I comfort him sometimes
Comfort and consultation, he knows that's what he'll find

F  E            Asus4           D5 D5addC# Dsus4  
He knows that's what--- he'll find

D5 D5addC# Dsus4  (repeat and fade, with "de de de de" backing vocals)
