[Intro]
G
 
 
[Verse 1]
C                     D
 I was supposed to be sent away
    Bm                      Em
But they forgot to come and get me
C                    D
 I was a functioning alcoholic
            G                 Em
'Til nobody noticed my new aesthetic
C               D                  Bm
 All of this to say, I hope you're okay
               Em
But you're the reason
C           D
 And no one here's to blame
    G                     Em
But what about your quiet treason?
 
 
[Chorus]
          C                  D
And for a fortnight there we were forever
             Bm              Em
Run into you sometimes, ask about the weather
                 C                  D
Now you're in my backyard, turned into good neighbors
                 G                  Em
Your wife waters flowers, I want to kill her
 
 
[Verse 2]
C                    D                  Bm           Em
 All my mornings are Monday stuck in an endless February
C                  D                   G               Em
I took the miracle move on drug, the effects were temporary
      C              D                      Bm             Em
And I love you, it's ruining my life (And I love you, it's ruining my life)
  C               D                   G
I touched you for only a fortnight (I touched you)
      Em
But I touched you
 
 
[Chorus]
          C                  D
And for a fortnight there we were forever
             Bm              Em
Run into you sometimes, ask about the weather
                 C                  D
Now you're in my backyard, turned into good neighbors
                 G                  Em
Your wife waters flowers, I want to kill her
          C                  D
And for a fortnight there we were together
             Bm                 Em
Run into you sometimes, comment on my sweater
                  C                 D
Now you're at the mailbox, turned into good neighbors
              G                   Em
My husband is cheating, I want to kill him
 
 
[Bridge]
  C            D                    Bm             Em
I love you, it's ruining my life, I love you, it's ruining my life
  C               D                   G              Em
I touched you for only a fortnight, I touched you, I touched you
  C            D                    Bm             Em
I love you, it's ruining my life, I love you, it's ruining my life
  C               D                   G              Em
I touched you for only a fortnight, I touched you, I touched you
 
 
[Outro]
           C                   D
Thought of calling you but you won't pick up
        Bm                 Em
Another fortnight lost in America
        C                D
Move to Florida, buy the car you want
       G                       Em
But it won't start up 'til you touch, touch, touch me
           C                   D
Thought of calling you but you won't pick up
        Bm                 Em
Another fortnight lost in America
        C                D
Move to Florida, buy the car you want
       G                     Em                  G
But it won't start up 'til I touch, touch, touch you
