myself and finally get a tab out for this song. feel free to correct it.

INTRO ([starts out with silence] 0:09-0:14)

Hey, still srting little girl are you looking at or past me?

The ones we make dont last a night.

So pick up the pieces.
Start again, start over Tuesday morning.
Conscience clean.

CHORUS part 3 (1:14-1:16)

VERSE (1:16-1:36)
This card, postmark December twenty three.
Caption reads, "How does he fo it?"
Mrs. too bad he treats me like im dead.
If nothing works, just make it easy.

No more lies.
The ones we live will work just fine.
