Chords in parenthesis are relative to a capo on the 8th fret.
Capo at 3 would work, but 8 sounds closest to the album, where
I think the guitarist is barring everything way up the neck.
The instrumental bridge is tabbed at the bottom.
Let me know if I made any mistakes.
The recording is a little flat, A=435ish, so you?ll sound
a little off pitch unless you tune down accordingly.
Weird chords:
For the capo 8 chords, you can hold the Em shape and just
accent the higher notes, or only play the higher notes.
No capo Capo 8

My [C(E)]room faces north but the sun?s in the south
I?m [Eb(G)]just waking up to the news of my birth
[Gm(Bm)]I am a girl and I?m [Bb(D)]lucky to be here
[Ab(C)]Whatever that?s worth[Fm(Am)]
Like an [C(E)]ostrich I lived with my head in the sand
[Eb(G)]Slipped into corners, sat on my hands
[Gm(Bm)]I learned to stifle the [Bb(D)]shouts and the outrage
And [Ab(C)]feeling deep down[Fm(Am)]
With my [Cm(Em)]chains falling off
And the [Cm/B(Em/Eb)]hope in a friend
[Cm/Bb(Em/D)]Cafes and walkways
[Cm/A(Em/Db)]sculptured weekends
I?m [Ab(C)]getting to love my [Eb(G)]freedom
I?m [Ab(C)]getting to like my [Eb(G)]surroundings
My [C(E)]room faces north but the sun?s in the south
You are [Eb(G)]far out of reach Could I be any worth
To [Gm(Bm)]some special person? My [Bb(D)]mind is unknowing
Of [Ab(C)]any such love[Fm(Am)]
So I [C(E)]yell out the window, answer the mail
My [Eb(G)]diary?s quiet, the definitive nail
In my [Gm(Bm)]social coffin. I [Bb(D)]blame all the boffins
For [Ab(C)]making me fail[Fm(Am)]
For an [Cm(Em)]hour in the park
Or an [Cm/B(Em/Eb)]hour on the couch
With the [Cm/Bb(Em/D)]boy of my choice
If he [Cm/A(Em/Db)]makes me go ouch
I will [Ab(C)]swap all my dumb school [Eb(G)]prizes
I am [Ab(C)]open to dark sur[Eb(G)]prises
[Cm(Em)] [Gm(Bm)] [Ab(C)] [Eb(G)] [Fm(Am)] [Cm(Em)] [Db(F)] [Cm(Em)] [G(B)] [Cm(Em)] 
My [C(E)]room faces north but the sun?s in the south
You are [Eb(G)]far out of reach, perfect hand, perfect mouth
The [Gm(Bm)]boredom, the freedom, the [Bb(D)]train on the meadow
Please [Ab(C)]keep me in dreams[Fm(Am)]
I [Eb(G)]don?t want commitment
I [Bb(D)]don?t want the drama
I [Ab(C)]just want your jeans[Fm(Am)]
I just want your [C(E)]jeans
Instrumental Bridge:
The nice thing about playing with capo 8 is that you can play
the instrumental melody pretty easily while strumming the chords.
