The Simplest Thing

Hey Rosetta

 CG
the rain starts off and it wakes you up
 EAmCF
 you can't sleep with that racket on the roof       
 CG
you get up slow but you can't get going
 EAmCF
it seems this morning the lowness has won        
 CGE
did you stop to see? mediocrity and your self pity,
 AmCF
they were stealing a kiss, look at their lips, still shiny    
 CG
did you notice that happiness
 EAmCF
 happens less the more often you stop to find where it's been hiding   
 CG
you say, "it's not my fault that i get so low
 EAm
there's a weight on my soul that just keeps pulling me down,
 CF
it's pulling me down, i swear it"   

 AmGCF
 so come on by my house and unleash me your monsters
 AmGCF
with you at the healm we'll go crashing around together
 AmGCF
and don't mistake some initial hate for something more than cautionary
 AmGCF
cause baby this is love, i'll come down to hell to keep you company

 AmFCG
of all the days we've got we should be screaming out...
 AmFCG
of all the days we've got we should be singing...

C G Am G x2

 CGAm
 what's to be done? one hundred and one 
 GC
in a tent for twelve with fingers and elbows
 GAm
in innocent ribs, we're minding our business
 GC
we're just minding our business instead of minding our minds  
 GAm
in times when the storms will ravage your clothes,
 GC
the sound and the colour could render you blind 
 GAm
and the throes of a nightmare can sing you to sleep
 GC
then some foreign machine wakes you up at a mean hour
 GAm
but heaven is there, under your hair,
 GC
it hides in the noon noise way up in the air
 GAm
like a bird on the breeze     
 GC
waiting for you and maybe me too

(C) G Am G x2

 CGAm
 whats there to do? one hundred and two
 GC
are out on the doorstep and they're pushing the bolts back
 GAm
they're wanting in, they're humming our hymn
 GC
everybodys singing like beautiful birds...
 GAmC
everybodys singing like beautiful birds...    
 CGAmG
 in the trees, listen to it, it's easy man, you can do it too
 CGAmG
 sing: i know what i want      
 CGAmG
  know what i need     

cause it's the simplest thing

 AmFCG
of all the nights we've got we should be stepping out...
 AmFCG
of all the nights we've got we should be stepping out...
 AmFCG
of all the nights we touch we should be swinging around from house to house

 CG
 if i could cheer you up it would mean so much,
 AmGAmF
 clowns in love and laughing it off, laughing it off, laughing it off
 CG
you say, "its not my fault that i get so low
 EAmE
but to drown you too, that's a sick way to love, it's a sick way to love,
 F
it's a fucking sick way to love"
