[Intro]
Em  D  C  G  Bm  C  Bm  C
 
[Verse 1]
Em          D                    C
   I wish I knew which button to push
            G           Bm     C
   Then I'd know how to please you
        Bm      C
   It's sad but true
Em             D                  C
   So I’ll just listen in down the line
              G           Bm          C
   While your busy mixing grape with grain
       Bm         C
   To sedate your pain
 
[Chorus]
   Am       Bm         C         G
   Songbird,   you got tales to tell
       Am             Bm  
   How many times can you 
             C       G      D   D7
describe your living hell?
 
[Verse 2]
Em              D              C
   The sweeping gesture creates fuss
             G           Bm          C
   It's only useful when receiving praise
             Bm       C
   Relieving no-ones pain
 Em                      D               C
   If you'd let somebody love you just enough
              G              Bm         C
   You'd have everything you need to break
            Bm       C
   Free from all your pain
 
[Chorus]
   Am       Bm         C          G
   Songbird,   you got tales to tell
      Am              Bm  
   How many times can you 
              C     G        D   D7
describe your living hell?
 
[Solo]
Em     D    C    G    D   D7
Em     D    C    G    D   D7
 
[Verse 3]
Em          D                     C
   I wish I knew which button to push
            G           Bm     C
   Then I'd know how to please you
        Bm     C
   It's sad but true
 
[Chorus]
Em              D               C       G
   let somebody love you just enough         
Em              D               C       G
   let somebody love you just enough                
Em              D               C       G
   let somebody love you just enough  
Em              D               C       G
   let somebody love you just enough 
 
(let ring out on the last G chord)
