Nails In My Feet  Neil Finn

My life is a [Cm]house. you crawl through the [Bdim/D]window,
slip a[G]cross the floor, and into the reception [Cm]room.
You enter the place of endless pers[Bdim/D]uasion,
like a [G]knock on the door when there`s ten or more things to do. [Cm]

Eflat Aflat Gm7 Bflat Eflat
Who was that calling? You, my companion,
Eflat Aflat Gm7 Eflat Aflat G7
run to the water on a burning beach,
Aflatmaj7/C E flat
and it brings me relief.

Aflat Cm Bdim/D G
Pass through the walls to find my intentions, circle round
in a strange hypnotic [Cm]state. I look into space, there is no con[Bdim/D]nection,
a million [G]points of light and a conversation i cant [Cm]face,

Eflat Aflat Gm7 Bflat Eflat
Cast me off one day. to lose my inhibitions
Aflat Gm7 Eflat Aflat G7
sit like a lap-dog on a matron`s knee.
Aflatmaj7/C Eflat Aflat
Wear the nails on your feet.


[Gm7]       [Cm7sus4]           [Gm7]       [Cm7sus4]          [/G]  
I woke up [Cm]the house,  stumbled in [Bdim/D]sideways,  the [G]lights went on,
and everybody screamed surprise[Cm].     The savage review,  it left me [Bdim/D]gasping
but it [G]warms my heart to see that you can do it too.[Cm]

Eflat Aflat Gm7 Bflat/6 Eflat
Total surrender. Your touch is so tender.
Aflat Gm7 Bflat/6 Bflat
Your skin is like water on a burning beach,
Eflat Aflat Gm7
and it brings me relief,
Bflat6 Eflat Aflat
and it brings me relief,
Bflat6 Eflat Aflat
and it brings me relief,
Bflat6 Eflat Aflat Gm7 Bflat6 Eflat Aflat
Gm7 Bflat6 Eflat Aflat
Bflat Bflat Bflat
brings me relief brings me relief
In the back row under the stars, and the ceiling is my floor.
