    G                G/F
And how it's always another day
E7                           Am
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

E            E/D
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.
It happens on "another day" "cigarette girl" and "here and now" and "good

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 an*lyze the lyrics? I like the line about going down 3 times
to only come up twice.
