Intro: F# B C#m B G#m C#m Eadd9 B (2x) 

       F#          B         C#m  B 
It was summer when she moved in 
           G#m         C#m         Eadd9   B 
And it was winter when she moved out again 
        F#  B             C#m  B 
And the sky was usually blue 
        G#m            C#m             Eadd9  B 
And the single bed was big enough for two 

     F#               B         C#m   B 
It's funny the things that stay with you 
    G#m              C#m           Eadd9           B 
Her jewellery on the table and the smell of her perfume 
    F#                B       C#m                 B 
The candle wax on the carpet, singing in the supermarket 
      G#m    C#m      Eadd9  B 
And the wall paper in her bedroom 

     Eadd9                   C#m           B 
I'll never understand how it happened like this 
  Eadd9                 C#m        B 
I drew an open hand and she drew a fist 
          Eadd9                         C#m   B     F# 
I drew an arrow and a heart, she drew a razor and a wrist 

Break: F# B C#m B G#m C#m Eadd9 B (2x)

            F#                 B 
She said 'I love you when it's sunny' 
        C#m            B 
But the sun refused to shine 
         G#m   C#m         Eadd9   B 
And I was crucified on the clothes line 
    F#        B               C#m    B 
She stole a magazine from the laundromat 
       G#m            C#m              Eadd9        B 
Did it weigh upon her conscience as it lay upon her lap 

    Eadd9                   C#m     B 
The body is willing but the mind is weak 
    Eadd9                         C#m     B 
The champagne is chilling and the wine is cheap 
    Eadd9                           C#m      B         F# 
The milk was always spilling and we cried ourselves to sleep 

Break: F# B C#m B G#m C#m Eadd9 B x 2 

       F#          B         C#m  B 
It was summer when she moved in 
           G#m         C#m       Eadd9  B 
And it was winter when she moved house again 
    F#    B    C#m  B  
The boxes on the floor 
        G#m           C#m              Eadd9  B 
And the note that she pinned to my door 

     Eadd9            B 
This house is made of sticks 
     Eadd9            B 
This house is made of straw 
     Eadd9            B 
This house is made of bricks 
              Eadd9          B 
This house is made of weatherboard
