Verse:

 DG
 Sunlight falls on your hands
 CGBbC
 As you type, just something in my head
 DGC
 standing in, this empty space, your desk is gone
 GBbC
the wall still dark..from where it when

Chorus:

 BbCGFGF
 This position is not open now for applicants       
 Bb
 the application forms got shreaded
 C
 there were faulty wordin' in the documents
 G
 I can still hear you laughin'
 FC
 coming up the rickity stairs
 GFC
 laughing as the springtime filled your lungs with air   
 GFC
 grey smoke hung out like patches in your hair like fire
 BbCG
 like birds inside a bell

Verse:

 DG
break those prows in back of my mind
 CGBbC
while the sun is out, no it's still up and the light is shining
 DG
 the season push and pull enough to get us through
 CGBbC
well my mind is open like a door to an empty room

Chorus:

 BbCGFGF
 This position is not open now for applicants       
 Bb
 the application forms got shreaded
 C
 there were faulty wordin' in the documents
 G
 I can still hear you laughin'
 FC
 coming up the rickity stairs
 GFC
 laughing as the springtime filled your lungs with air   
 GFC
 grey smoke hung out like patches in your hair like fire
 BbCG
 like birds inside a bell

Outro:

 C
 if Somehow
 Am
 I'd have known
 Am
 i'd rather come down
 C
with the ship
 C
 than be without you
 Am
if only for the chance
 Am
 to hold you hand
 C
to be your friend
 C
 I never got there last time
 Am
i'd rather come down
 Am
 in this
 CAm
the war is over, the war is over, the war is over
 Am
and I'm waiting in the sinking ships

 DGCGBbC
 DGCG
 If only I had known
 BbCG
If only I had known


Am Bb C D F G
