V1:     [G] How dare the premier ignore my invitations!?
        [Am] He'll have to go
        So [G]too the bunch he luncheons with
        It's second on my list of things to [Am]do
        [G]At the top I'm stopping by your place of work and acting like
        I [Am]haven't dreamed of you and I and marriage in an orange grove
        [G] You are the only thing in any room you're ever in
        [Am] I'm stubborn, selfish, and too old

V2:     I [G]sat you down and told you how the truest love that's ever found
        [Am] Is for oneself
        You [G]pulled apart my theory with a weary and disinterested [Am]sigh
        So [G]yes i guess i'm asking you to back a horse that's good for glue
        [Am] And nothing else
        But [G]find a man that's truer than
        Find a man that needs you more[Am] than I
V3:     [G]Sit with me a while and let me listen to you talk about
        Your [Am]dreams and your obsessions I'll be quite and confessional
        The [Bm]violets explode inside me when i meet your eyes
        Then I'm [C]spinning and i'm diving like a cloud of starlings.
n.C. (G/D)
Darling is this love?
