Waiting for Slow Songs  Sloan

When you and you[G]r cast of friends arrive[Bm]
And the party reaches a new h[C]igh
Don't you think it'll l[G]ast too long
[Am]Before you know it baby
[B7]They break out into that son[G]g
That I know I've heard it once or t[Bm]wice
From where I just can't be pre[C]cise
Even though it's irrel[G]evant
[Am]It's as if I've [B7]woken from
A confused and cloudy dream[E]
[F#m] [D] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus2] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus2] 
[Fmaj]But you write the saddest son[C]g
Turn around and [Fmaj]make it a singalong[G]
[Fmaj]The heart scratch melod[C]y
Means there's more than [Fmaj]this for you and me[D] [B]
When you [G]wait by the door, look for your r[Bm]ide
Where the shoes are piled up on the s[C]ide
And the dancing's out [G]of hand
[Am]Don't leave just 'cause they wo[B7]n't play your favourite ba[G]nd
And the night it goes on and[Bm] on
And I'm waiting for slow songs[C]
But I block out [G]most of the singing
[Am]Replaced by bells, is t[B7]hat your ride?
You only just arrived
[Fmaj]Could you write the saddest s[C]ong
Turn around and [Fmaj]make it a singalong[G]
[Fmaj]The heart scratch melod[C]y
Means there's more than [Fmaj]this for you and me
[G]And the night it goes on and o[Bm]n
I'm through waiting for slow song[C]s
But I block out m[G]ost of the ringing
[Am]Replaced by thoughts unjus[B7]tified
I wish that I could write
[F]Could you write the saddest song[C]
Turn around and m[F]ake it a singalong[C]
The h[F]eart scratch melody[C]
Means there's more to t[F]his than you and me[C]
If wo[F]rds could be combined[C]
To describe your tr[F]ademark look tonight[C]
I'd w[F]rite it out to boost my caree[C]r
But you know that w[F]riting always takes me year[D]s[B]
[E] [F#m] [D] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus2] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus2] 
[E] [F#m] [D] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus2] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus2]
