Comfortable (John Mayer) 
transcribed by Catherine Gagné (www3.sympatico.ca/g403z)

( ) He doesn't always play the chord and but it's a nice addition. 
(x00020) might be (x00220) or (x02220) 
(x20030) might be (x20230).

(1) I just remembered that time at the market 
snuck up behind me and jumped on my shopping cart 
and rolled down aisle five 
you looked behind you to smile back at me 
and crashed into a rack full of magazines 
they asked us if we could leave 

(2) I can't remember what went wrong last September 
though I'm sure you'd remind me if you had to 

our love was comfortable and so broken in 

(1) I sleep with this new girl I'm still getting used to 
my friends all approve, 
say "she's gonna be good for you" 
They throw me high fives 
She says the Bible is all that she reads 
and prefers that I not use profanity 
Your mouth was so dirty 

(2) Life of the party and she swears that she's artsy 
but you could distinguish Miles from Coltrane 

Our love was comfortable and so broken in 
she's perfect 
so flawless 
(3) or so they say 

Interlude (4) 

She thinks I can't see the smile that she's faking 
and poses for pictures that aren't being taken 
(5) I loved you 
grey sweatpants 
no makeup 
so perfect 

(6) Our love was comfortable and so broken in 
she's perfect 
so flawless 
(3)I'm not impressed 
I want you back
