Verse 1:
     G(1)    G(2)                   C            D
The doorway frames you a picture perfect silhouette,

G(1)     G(2)		     D(1)     D(2)    
Blue sky of regret enough to hang you

     G(1)          G(2)                 C                D
Your legs seem to tremble, at least I imagine that they do

(1)          G(2)                 D(1)        D(2)
        Then again, it’s probably easy for you

Chorus:
  C             C        D(1)     D(2)
Please, don’t open your mouth, my dear

       G            D/F#   Em                    Em     
I can read all the signs-	I can take it from here

         C   C        D(1)           D(2)        G    Walkdown*
There’s no need to explain, 	it’s perfectly clear


Verse 2:
        G(1)      G(2)            C                 D
Yellow wallpaper peals a strange halo around your head

G(1)			G(2)         D(1)            D(2)
      It’s funny how I notice these stupid things instead

    G(1)             G(2)  C                      D
You say something awkward,    but I wish that you   wouldn’t

G(1)          G(2)                   D(1)              D(2)
      A whole life of “You wish you could’s, but just couldn’ts”


Chorus:
   C           C        D(1)      D(2)
Please, don’t open your mouth, my dear

        G           D/F#    Em                   Em
I can read all the signs-	I can take it from here

         C  C          D(1)      D(2)       Em
There’s no need to explain, it’s perfectly clear


Bridge:

Em      Em           C        C   Slide riff†  Em    Em        C        C  Slide riff†   
      I try not to think too much;               it only just makes me mad

Em             Em            C       Slide riff†
      I spent half my life loving you

         G(1)             G(2)          G(1)   G(2)     
Think of all the love that I could have had

Verse 3:
G(1)                 G(2)       C              D
Five years worth of kisses are packed in your bags

G(1)             G(2)               D(1)               D(2)
      This tiny moment fits all the big things we ever had

      G(1)         G(2)              C           D
And I can’t quite pinpoint when it left or what for

G(1)                G(2)  D(1)          D(2)
Love always steps lightly away from the door
Chorus:

   C           C         D(1)     D(2)
Please, don’t open your mouth, my dear

        G           D/F#   Em                    Em      
I can read all the signs-	I can take it from here

        C    C         D(1)   D(2)            C   C         D(1)       D(2)        G   Walkdown*
There’s no need to explain,        no there’s no need to explain, it’s perfectly clear
