A-riff
Shed the days like skin, pray for evenings in
D-riff
Hold their hands in the street when you walk them off to school
A-riff
A box too full to shut, cardboard paper cut
D-riff
Bleeding edge of a picture of your parents when they were cool
[E] So much to [F#m]say, I for[D]get to [A]start
[E] There goes a [F#m]day, [D]fading as it [A]passes
[E] Forget the [F#m]grey, let it [D]fall a[A]part
[Bm] It's okay[D]
A-riff
I like you in glasses
Shovels in the sand, a play-doh wedding band
A drowning princess in a tangle of towels on the floor
An old familiar ache, the little pills we take
The thoughtless kindness of a coffee cup waiting by the door
So much to say, I forget to start
There goes a day, fading as it passes
Forget the grey, let it fall apart
It's okay
(bridge: same as intro, hold the D when it goes to the verse)
It's on the board, someone's been double-booking
I've got time, how is your next week looking?
House shifts into place, a little breathing space
The radiators and the floorboards will argue while we sleep
There's water in the walls, the stairs make waterfalls
Down in the basement the soft sound of a river digging deep
So much to say, I forget to start
There goes a day, fading as it passes
Forget the grey, let it fall apart
So much to say, I forget to start
There goes a day, fading as it passes
Forget the grey, let it fall apart
It's okay
I like you in glasses
