And how it's always another day
Just after twelve o'clock's struck
Am Ami/G# D
You said "Now I only want you so I don't have to promise"
G G/F C/E C
Or the cigarette-girl in the sizzle hot-pants
C G/B D/A G/B
All the words of love seem cruel and crass
C G/B D/A G/B
When you're tough and transparent as armoured glass
C G/B D/A E/G#
You're everywhere girl in an everyday mess
And it's all here and now
Am Am/B Am/C A/E
She hit him with that paper-weight Eiffel Tower
Dm G Dm G
And I tried to hold on to you but I don't know how
C C/B C/Bb A
And I find it hard to swallow good advice
Am Am/B Am/C ?/D ?/D#
Like going down three times to only come up twice
Come up twice
The recurring device here is a major chord with the flat 7th in the bass.

Also lots of 1st & 2nd inversion chords. The most original part is the
bridge with the bassline walking up beneath the Am chord. Ami/B is, by
itself very dissonant, as the B isn't part of an Am or Am7, but in context
it sounds great. The end of the bridge is really strange with the same line
continuing through D D# E with the Beatles-like chanting going on against
it-I don't know what to call those chords.
Anyone care to analyze the lyrics? I like the line about going down 3 times
to only come up twice.
