I Am Trying To Break Your Heart

by Wilco, arr. by JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound

[ use capo 2, A/Em/D chord shapes ]

I am an American aquarium drinker
I assassin down the avenue
I'm hiding out in the big city blinking
What was I thinking when I let go of you

/ B - F#m E /

Let's forget about the tongue-tied lightning
Let's undress just like cross-eyed strangers
This is not a joke so please stop smiling
What was I thinking when I said it didn't hurt

{refrain}
I am trying to break your heart
I am trying to break your heart
But still I'd be lying if I said it wasn't easy
I am trying to break your heart

I want to glide through those brown eyes dreaming
Take you from the inside, baby hold on tight
You were so right when you said I've been drinking
What was I thinking when we said good night

I want to hold you in the Bible-black predawn
You're quite a quiet, domino, bury me now
Take off your band-aid 'cause I don't believe in touchdowns
What was I thinking when we said hello


I think that...
{refrain}

    [ man, I don't know where this bridge comes from ]
    I'm going away, and you can't look for me
    And where I'm going, you cannot come
    No one's every going to take my knife from me
    I laid it down, a ghost is born, a ghost is born
   
    / ?? /

I always thought that if I held you tightly
You'd always love me like you did back then
Then I fell asleep in the city kept blinking
What was I thinking when I let you back in

Disposable Dixie cup drinker
I assassin down the avenue
I've been hiding out in the big city blinking
What was I thinking when I let go of you

{refrain}

Because I still love you
