                [Intro]
E E/Eb B A
(x2)

[Verse]
E                       E/Eb           A
Her body is a difficult sister and she loves her
E                             E/Eb            A
And hides her somewhere in herself, safe from harm
E                            E/Eb               A
She's barely coasting into a paycheck, stuck on empty
E                                 E/Eb      A
Her blue eyes frozen green in the low-lit ATM


[Pre-Chorus]
  F#m                       A
I need a way to measure the distance
  F#m               C#m
I need a way to say why
       A
Out of breath or out of key
F#m         C#m        E E/Eb B
Her voice resonated in me


[Chorus]
A            E E/Eb B
Wish on everything
A               E E/Eb B
Pray that she remains
A                     C#m           Esus2
Proud and strange and so hopelessly hopeful


[Verse]
E                       E/Eb           A
Her body is a difficult sister and she loves her
E                             E/Eb            A
And hides her somewhere in herself, safe from harm
E                              E/Eb          A
Her night shift is over, she's writing you a postcard
   E                            E/Eb          A
To say that she's okay and it's raining there again


[Pre-Chorus]
   F#m                        A
My fury's rising faster than bus fares
      F#m             C#m
Could someone clarify why
           A
There's no structured narrative?
E            C#m       E E/Eb B
No neat storyline to explain


[Chorus]
A            E E/Eb B
Wish on everything
A               E E/Eb B
Pray that she remains
A                     C#m           Esus2
Proud and strange and so hopelessly hopeful


[Chorus]
A            E E/Eb B
Wish on everything
A               E E/Eb B
Pray that she remains
A                     C#m           Esus2
Proud and strange and so hopelessly hopeful


[Chorus]
E          E/Eb            B
Wishes and prayers are the way
A
Wish on everything
E                 E/Eb    B
That we leave the lonely alone
A
Pray that she remains
E            E/Eb     B
And push the wounded away
A                     C#m           Esus2
Proud and strange and so hopelessly hopeful

[Break]
E G#m C#m B A

[Bridge]
    E                                                    G#m
She shoplifts some Christmas gifts and a bracelet for herself
                      C#m            B               A
And considers phoning home, has some quarters in her hand
        E                                              G#m
But she sits down on the sidewalk and bites her bottom lip
                    C#m          B                 A
And spends the afternoon willing traffic lights to change

[Break]
E G#m C#m B A
(x6)
