Sleep The Clock Around  Belle and Sebastian

[E]  [B]  [C#m]    [A]                             
And the [E]moment will come when composure returns
Put a [B]face on the world, turn your back to the wall
And you [C#m]walk twenty yards with your head in the air
Down the [A]Liberty Hill, where the fashion brigade
Look with [E]curious eyes on your raggedy way
And for [B]once in your life you've got nothing to say
And could [C#m]this be the time when somebody will come
To say, "[A]Look at yourself, you're not much use to anyone"

[E]  [B]  [C#m]    [A]                            
Take a [E]walk in the park, take a valium pill
Read the [B]letter you got from the memory girl
But it [C#m]takes more than this to make sense of the day
Yeah, it [A]takes more than milk to get rid of the taste
And you [E]trusted to this, and you trusted to that
And when you [B]saw it all come, it was waving the flag
Of the [C#m]United States of Calamity, hey!
After [A]all that you've done, boy, I know you're going to pay

[E] [B] [C#m] [A]
[E] [B] [C#m] [A]
In the [E]morning you come to the ladies' salon
To get [B]all fitted out for The Paperback Throne
But the [C#m]people are living far away from the place
Where you [A]wanted to help, it's a bit of a waste
And the [E]puzzle will last until somebody will say
"There's a [B]lot to be done while your head is still young"
If you [C#m]put down your pen, leave your worries behind
Then the [A]moment will come, and the memory will shine
[E]  [B]  [C#m]    [A]                            
Now the [E]trouble is over, everybody got paid
Every[B]body is happy, they are glad that they came
Then you [C#m]go to the place where you've finally found
You can [A]look at yourself, sleep the clock around

[E]  [B]  [C#m]    [A]
