This is the story of a girl

Who cried a river and drowned the whole world

And while she looked so sad in photographs

I absolutely love her

When she smiles

/ Csus2 G5 / A7sus4 D / Bm Csus2 / A7sus4 / G5 D Csus2 G5 D Csus2 /

Now how many days in a year

She woke up with hope but she only found tears

And I can be so insincere

Making her promises never for real

As long as she stands there waiting

Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes

Now how many days disappear

When you look in the mirror, so how do you choose

/ Bm Csus2 / G5 D / :


Your clothes never wear as well the next day

And your hair never falls in quite the same way

You never seem to run out of things to say

/ Em7 Dadd4/F# / G5 A7sus4 / Em7 Dadd4/F# A7sus4 /


Now how many lovers would stay

Just to put up with this shit

Day after day

Now how did we wind up this way

Watching our mouths for the words that we say

As long as we stand here waiting

Wearing the clothes or the soles that we choose

Now how do we get there today

When we're walking too far for the price of our shoes







Whose pretty face she hid from the world

And while she looks so sad in photographs


When she smiles!
