Calling and Not Calling My Ex  Okkervil River

D D (little riff) G G/F# x2
She was once [D]mine
That smile that [G]shines [G/F#]from the glossy maga[D]zine that stuck inside the Sunday [G]Ti[G/F#]mes
D G G/F# (and so on...)
She was so sweet on Christmas Eve
With the snow set deep, when we went walking through the pines
I had just been [Em]fired and her first offer had [G]arrived
And the new year would see her [D/F#]flying far away from me
A A?(002223) D G G/F#
Though I didn't know it at the time
With outstretched [D]hands
Now she [G]commands[G/F#]
A famous [D]figure for every [A]picture
And she [D]stands up strong and she [G]demands[G/F#]
And they [D]deliver
Yeah, she's a [A]fixture
And it's a [Em]mixture of dumb jealousy and [G]fear that I might feel, should she [D/F#]appear
Just like it hasn't been three [A]years
And there's a [Em]distance to her voice over the [G]phone and that's because she stands D/F#
A A?
While I'm still sitting here
Girl, you see me [Em]here on another quiet [Bm]night
I will wait until an[D/F#]other indistinguishable [A]day arrives
I'll de[Em]cide where the light's even and [Bm]bright
Where my life's sweet as it's [D/F#]slightly, disappointedly, just [A]gliding softly [Em]by
And you won't wait [Bm]for me in some secluded [D/F#]stand of trees some Christmas Eve some
[A]god was kind enough to set a[Em]side
Although I'd [Bm]love you to, I'm proud of you
God [D/F#]knows I'm feeling really stupid [A]now
For having ever said good[D]bye[G] [G/F#]
During the [D]fight
I said, "Yeah [G]right"[G/F#]
When you [D]insisted that I visit, that you'd [G]write[G/F#]
Now, I know you're working [D]hard so I never hear from you, and that's [G]fine[G/F#]
You look the [D]same on TV as when you were [G]mine[G/F#]
I [Em]walk in from the kitchen and I [Bm]finger the re[A]mote control
I [Em]watch you from the distance, you go [Bm]walking through the [A]terminal
I [Em]remember ever instance, when you [D/F#]stung me
Oh, you're so [A]lovely
Oh, you're so [Em]smart
G A D G G/F# x2
So, go turn their heads, go knock them dead, go break their hearts
Go break their [D]hearts[G] [G/F#]
Baby, break their hearts
And I know you will
