Must I Paint You a Picture  Billy Bragg


Must I paint you a picture
(Billy Bragg)
intro: C - G - Am
[C]It's bad tim[G]eing and m[F]e
We find a l[G]ot of things out this way[C]
And the[G]re's you
A little bl[F]ack cloud in a dres[G]s
[C]The temptat[G]ion
To take the prec[Am]ious things w[F]e have a part
To se[C]e how they wor[G]k[C]
Must be resi[G]sted for they never fit tog[Am]ether again[F] [C]
[G]If this is rain let it f[Am]all on me and drown me
[G]If these are tears let[Am] them fall[G]
Must I paint you a pi[C]cture[G] [Am]
About the way that I[C] feel[G] [Am]
You know that my love for you [C]is strong g[Am]irl[G]
You know that my love for you [C]is real[Am] [G]
[C]It took a sho[G]rt walk and a ta[F]lk
To change the ru[G]les of engagement[C]
While you searc[G]hed frantically for rev[F]erse[G]
[C]And then cla[G]iming
That vir[Am]tue never tes[F]ted is no vi[C]rtue at al[A]l
[C]And so [G]I lost my ignoran[Am]ce
[F-G] And now the bells across the river[Am] chime out your name
[G]I look across to them a[Am]gain [G] (chorus)
[Em]All your friends sais come dow[C]n
It will never fly
And on that impe[F]rfect day
We threw it al[G]l away
C[Em]risis after crisis, w[Am]ith such intensity
[F]This would never happen if we lived [G]by the sea
[C]Most impo[G]rtant decisions in life[F]
Are made betwee[G]n two people in bed[C]
I found th[G]at at my own expens[F]e[G]
[C]And when I se[G]e you
You juts tu[Am]rn around and w[F]alk away like [C]we never m[G]et[C]
Oh [G]we used to be so br[Am]ave[F]
[G]I dreamt the wolrd stopped tur[Am]ning as we climbed the h[G]ill
I dreamt impossible dre[Am]ams that we were lovers still [G] (chorus)
