[Verse 1] (G, C)
G C  G 
Babe,
C                 G         C    G 
there's something tragic about you
C             Em     C      Em
something so magic about you
C         G     C  G  C
don't you agree


[Verse 2] (G, C)
G  C   G  
Babe,
C                 G         C      G
there's something lonesome about you

something so wholesome about you
C             G    C G  C 
Get closer to me


[Bridge 1]
Em             D                C          C
no tight side, no rolling eyes, no irony
Em              D                 C
no 'who cares', no vacant stares, no time for me


[Chorus] (G, C, Em,(C), D, C)
G      C     Em       (C)     D              C
Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
     G    C      Em     (C)    D               C
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
G      C       Em        (C)     D               C
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
   G        C         Em   (C)      D                C
I slithered here from eden just to sit outside your door


[Verse 3] (G, C)
G  C   G
Babe,
C                 G         C      G
there's something wretched about this
C             Em        C      Em
something so precious about this
C             G    C G  C 
where to begin


[Verse 4 played on live shows] (G, C)
G  C   G
Babe,
C                 G         C      G
there's something broken about this
C              Em     C        Em
but I might be open about this
C             G    C G  C 
oh what a sin


[Bridge 2]
Em             D                C            C
To the strand a picnic plan for you and me
Em             D                C
a rope in hand for your other man to hang from a tree


[Chorus] (G, C, Em,(C), D, C)
G      C     Em       (C)     D              C
Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
     G    C      Em     (C)    D               C
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
G      C       Em        (C)     D               C
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
   G        C         Em   (C)      D                C
I slithered here from eden just to sit outside your door


G      C     Em       (C)     D              C
Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
     G    C      Em     (C)    D               C
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
G      C       Em        (C)     D               C
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
   G        C         Em   (C)      D                C
I slithered here from eden just to sit outside your door
