Repeat RIFF 1 twice.
        [Em]   [D]  [Am]   [C]     I light your cigarette, I bring you apples from the vine
   [Em]   [D]  [Am]   [C]     How quickly you forget, I run the bath and pour the wine
   [Em]   [F#/A]     [C]     I bring you everything that floats into your mind
   [G]  [D]  [Am]   [C]     Now you don’t bring me anything but down (repeat x 3)
   [Em]      When you come round
        [Em]   [D]  [Am]   [C]     You are a raging sea, I pull myself out everyday
   [Em]   [D]  [Am]   [C]     I plea insanity, ‘cause I can't leave and I can't stay
   [Em]   [F#/A]     [C]      You say won’t you come find me and yes is what I’ll say
   [G]  [D]  [Am]   [C]     You don’t bring me anything but down (repeat x 2)
   [Em]   [D]  [Am]   [C]     And everything is crashing to the ground
   [G]  [D]     Maybe I'm not the perfect kind
   [Am]   [C]     Maybe I’m not what you had in mind
   [G]  [Am]   [C]      And maybe we’re just killing time

(high e, the thinnest string)
   [Em]   [D]  [Am]   [C]     You with your silky words, and your eyes of green and blue
   [Em]   [D]  [Am]   [C]     You with your steel beliefs that don’t match anything you do
   [Em]   [F#/A]     [C]      You were so much easier before you became you.
   [G]  [D]  [Am]   [C]     You don’t bring me anything but down. (repeat x 2)
   [G]  [D]  [Am]   [C]      And everything just crashes to the ground.
   [G]  [D]  [Am]   [C]     When you come around.
   [G]  [Am]   [C]      When you come around ..
   [G]  [D]     Well no more playing seek and hide,
   [Am]   [C]      No more long and wasted nights,
   [G]  [D]  [Am]   [C]     Can't you make it easy on yourself.
   [G]  [D]     Well I know you wish you were strong,
   [Am]   [C]     You wish you were never wrong,
G D Am (end by strumming once down on the Am cord.)
Well I got some wishes of my own.
