[Intro]

Em  D  C  B7
Em  D  C  B7


[Verse]

Em         D                         C
   You got the lights on in the afternoon
        B7                            Em
And the nights are drawn out long
           D                          C
And you're kissing to cut through the gloom
       B7                            Em
With a cough drop coloured tongue
         D                              C                             
You were sitting in the corner with the coats all piled high
      B7                            Em
And I thought you might be mine

     D                                C
In a small world on an exceptionally rainy Tuesday night
       B7
In the right place and time


[Chorus]

         Em                         D         
When the zeros line up on the twentyfour hour clock
         C                                  B7                
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
         Em                                  D
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
         C            B7     
And your knee socks


[Verse]

Em          D                C
   Well you cured my January blues, 
         B7                   
yeah you made it all alright
        D                               C
I got a feeling I might've lit the very fuse 
         B7                          Em
that you were trying not to light
           D                              C
You were a stranger in my phonebook I was acting like I knew
        B7                    Em
Cause I had nothing to lose
         D                               C
When the Winter's in full swing and your dreams just aren't coming true
         B7
Ain't it funny what you'll do?


[Chorus]

         Em                         D         
When the zeros line up on the twentyfour hour clock
         C                                  B7                
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
         Em                                  D
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
         C           B7     
And your knee socks


[Bridge]

C                            D
In late afternoon, the ghost in your room
                Em                                 
That you always thought didn't approve of you knocking boots
                  C                          B7
Never stopped you letting me get hold of the sweet spot
                      Em
By the scruff of your   knee socks

Em
You and me could've been a team
Each had a half of a king-and-queen seat
Like the beginning of Mean Streets you could Be My Baby

(The zeros lined up but the number's blocked)
(When you've come undone)


[Chorus]

         Em                         D         
When the zeros line up on the twentyfour hour clock
         C                                  B7                
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
         Em                                  D
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
         C           B7     
And your knee socks
