        INTRO:  Amadd9 - Amaj7add9 - Amadd9 - Amaj7add9


                  Amadd9
            I.  I wake up as she's leaving,
                     Amaj7add9
                gone for the Sunday news.
                       Amadd9
                she'll buy a pound of coffee.
                        Amaj7add9  <-(one strum and pause)
                no, the coffee pot is gone.
                    Dmadd9
                for tea I boil the water
                    Dmaj7add9
                and throw it at the wall.
                D9
                paper steams away
                Asus4add-9/D
                like a melting bridge,
                Amaj7add9  Aadd9  Amaj7add9  Aadd9  Amaj7add9
                melting    bridge.


                   Amadd9
           II.  if I don't ask forever,
                Amaj7add9
                maybe she'll come back.
                Amadd9
                if she loves me sometime,
                Amaj7add9
                I could live with that.
                    Dmadd9
                the radio is playing:
                   Dmaj7add9
                me and the sound of pain,
                    D9
                two objects in one space
                Asus4add-9/D
                water steaks my face
                Amaj7add9  Aadd9  Amaj7add9  Aadd9  Amaj7add9
                font  of   grace.


                Asus4
       CHORUS:  denial, anger, bargaining, depression,
                  Aadd9/F#     E
                acceptance.
                Asus4
                denial, anger, bargaining, depression,
                  Aadd9/F#     E
                acceptance,  acceptance.


 INSTRUMENTAL:  Amadd9 - Amaj7add9 - Fmaj7-5/A - Amaj7add9
                Aadd9 - Amaj77add9


                Amadd9
          III.  I've pushed every button
                   Amaj7add9
                to find another song.
                    Amadd9
                but still she doesn't love me
                    Amaj7add9
                and hasn't all along.
                    Dmadd9
                the die has never been cast
                        Dmaj7add9
                there's nothing left to smash.
                D9
                what's past is past.
                Asus4add-9/D
                free of her at last,
                Amaj7add9   Aadd9  Amaj7add9
                free   at   last.


                Dmadd9
           IV.  melting bridge is burning.

                firemen are returning.
                     Dmaj7add9
                they cannot hinder it.
                Dmadd9
                now the bridge is leaning.

                water they are needing
                    Dmaj7add9
                has all flowed under it.


 INSTRUMENTAL:  Asus4 - Aadd9/F# - E


                /// REPEAT CHORUS ///


                Amadd9
       ENDING:  melting bridge is falling,
                Amaj7add9
                melting bridge is falling,
                Fmaj7-5/A                   Amaj7add9
                melting bridge is falling,
                        Aadd9   Amaj7add9
                falling down.

                Amadd9
                melting bridge is falling,
                Amaj7add9
                melting bridge is falling,
                Fmaj7-5/A                   Amaj7add9
                melting bridge is falling,
                        Aadd9   Amaj7add9
                falling down.

                Amadd9
                melting bridge is falling,
                Amaj7add9
                melting bridge is falling,
                Fmaj7-5/A                   Amaj7add9
                melting bridge is falling,
                        Aadd9   Amaj7add9
                falling down,
                        Aadd9   Amaj7add9
                        down.
