Off the Hook

This is a favorite of mine and I couldn't find a tab of it anywhere,
so I figured it out.  I made this tab from the Demo version of the
song.  Listen to the song of the timing.
I recommend playing the C chord as a barre chord in A formation
everywhere aside from where it specifies open.


[Verse]
G              Em                   Bm
All around the room your things are placed
                                    G
And next to you he fills the space
          Em                Bm
And so it seems your saving grace is only saving face
G               Em              Bm
The pictures of the two of you on holiday, on honeymoon
G                       Em
You thought that he was wanting you,
Bm
But he was only wanting you to
A   Bm  C   D
Let him off the hook

G  Em  Bm  G  Em  Bm

G           Em        Bm
He was your imaginary friend,
Bm                        G
You were partners til the end
               Em                 Bm
Then something bends, and then it breaks, your worst mistake
          G          Em            Bm
Accepting enemies on bended knees a litany of tragedies,
       G                      Em              Bm
You're vexed, it seems you're hexed and after sex he expects
               A   Bm  C    D
You'll let him off the hook til

[Chorus]
G         Em       D                    C  
Something that you heard while you were sleeping left you
G      Em       D                  C
Shaken while he stirred.  When you awaken you will
G        Em      A     Bm    C   D   G    Em Bm G Em Bm
Make him eat his words right off the hook

[Verse]
G               Em                  Bm
The credit card receipts, the dirty sheets
                              G
The souvenirs of men who cheat
             Em                Bm
It all makes sense - with each offense

You wanted to believe him
G            Em               Bm
He could get away with murder one,
                                   G
And you would clean the smoking gun
           Em                     Bm
With every crime, you bought each line,

But not this time, you'll make him
A   Bm  C     D
Eat his words cause


[Chorus]
G         Em       D                    C 
Something that you heard while you were sleeping left you
G      Em       D
Shaken while he stirred
         C 
When you awaken you will
G        Em      A     Bm    C   D
Make him eat his words right off the hook

[Bridge]
G Em  Bm    G    Em  Bm
Every Time, Hook and line
G Em  Bm    G    Em  A    Bm C D
Every time, Hook and line

[Chorus]
G         Em       D                    C 
Something that you heard while you were sleeping left you
G      Em       D
Shaken while he stirred
         C 
When you awaken you will
G        Em       A     Bm C   D
Make him eat his, make him eat his
G           Em   D
Words while he's alone,
      C 
Cause you won't be around and
G        Em      A     Bm    C   D  G    Em D C 
Drom now on the phone stays off the hook

[Outro]
G    Em  D    C
Hook and line,

G  Em A Bm C D G
