TAB

            Capo 2


Am G Em D x2

{verse}
       Am              G              Em            D
Say you see through the folly but you do it for the fame
   Am           G                     Em            D          Am
I'm fighting the jet stream, drinkin' cheap wine on airplanes
        G           Em    D    Am
You're in L.A., not Chicago
          G               Em         D          G
Key under mat, I walk the dog, order in, home alone

Em D G Em D Am

{verse}
Found your letter on a full moon Sunday night
Some other girl in your spell, casting plans for her life
Pour the vodka, and it dulls sharp knives
Breathe the words; diamonds on rings

{chorus}
    Am         Em
And you didn't really mean it
   Am           Em    D
So I don't have to believe it
   Am         Em
If you didn't really mean it
     Am          Em            Am
Then magical thinking gets us by

Em G D Am Em G D

{verse}
Sing for the after show, those candy colored lips
But your age is showing, and you gotta work harder for it
It's always easier with freshman
Not as clever, but she'll bring you to life

{chorus}
And you didn't mean to do it
So I don't have to believe it
If you didn't really mean it
Magical thinking gets us by

Em D Am Em x2

Em D

   Am          Em       Em   D
My fairweather friend
  Am        Em
Fairweather friend

~instrumental: same as verse~

{verse}
There for the folly
But you did it for the fame
And you're fragile as porcelain
Drinkin' cheep wine on airplanes
And did I ever leave Chicago?
I got your message, glad you're doing well

{chorus}
And you didn't mean to do it
So I don't have to believe it
If we didn't really mean it
Magical thinking gets us by

Em G D       Am Em G D       Am Em G D
     Gets us by      Gets us by

        Am              G             Em             D     Am G Em D
Say you see through the folly but you did it for the fame              x2

Em D Am Em
