Brick  Ben Folds Five

   S[D]ix am  [G]Day after Christmas
   I[D] throw some clothes on [G]in the dark
   T[D]he smell of cold, c[G]ar seat is freezing
   t[D]he world is sleeping [G]I am,  [D]numb.

Up the stairs, to her apartment
she is balled up on the couch
Her mom and dad, went down to Charlotte
they're not home to find us out-

(BRIDGE)

   [Bm7]And we drive [G]
   [Bm7]Now that I ha[G]ve found someone
   [D]I'm feeling more alone  [G]
Bm7 Esus4,E,Esus4
than I ever have before


(CHORUS)

   S[G]he's [A]a brick and I'm [Dmaj9]drowning slowly
   o[G]ff th[A]e coast and I'm [Dmaj9]heading no where
   S[G]he's [A]a brick and I'm [Dmaj9]drowning slowly--

G,A,G,D

(Same Chords and rythm as opening verse)

They call her name
at seven thirty
I pace around the Paking lot
Then I walk down
to buy her flowers
and sell some gifts that I got

(Bridge chords)

Can't you see,
It's not me,
you're dying for
Now she's feeling more alone
Then she ever has before

(CHORUS)

(Chords on outro of 2nd chorus)

G,A,G,A,D/F#,G,D
G,A,G,A,D/F#,G

[Esus]   As w[E]eeks went by[Gsus] it sh[G]owed that she[D] was[Dsus] not fine
[Esus]   They[E] told me son[Gsus] it's [G]time to tell [D]the [Dsus]truth and
[Esus]   she [E]broke down, [Gsus]and I [G]broke down
D Dsus Esus E Esus G D,G,D,G
cause I was tired---- of lying

(Verse 4)

Driving back, to her apartment
for the moment we're alone
Yeah she's alone, and I'm alone
and now I know it.
(Chorus)
  ...d[Bm7]rowning  [A/C#]slowly G,A,G,A,D/F#,G,D

On the nosey! Usually very tough to convert a piano song to guitar but you nailed it here.
