[--0------0-----0------0--] 

(when strumming the A on the verses just play it like a D power chord) 
E 
cheap drapes frame the windows, 
Eadd4(E w/ open A) E 
noone speaks his mind 
E 
buckling asphalt up ahead, 
Eadd4 B 
smoking wreck behind 
E 
stock footage of a ballroom nearly 
A E 
flooded with champagne 
E 
we're lost in the desert and it's 
A B E 
never going to rain 

Break 1: 
[-----------]

[--0-----0--] 

E 
every time in this house someone 
Eadd4 E 
opens up his mouth 
E 
all his hopes and dreams begin their 
Eadd4 B 
dizzy journey south 
E 
when the pipes began to freeze we 
A E 
turned on all the taps 
E 
tearing a good thing to pieces, 
A B E 
bickering over the scraps 

Break 2: 
If you strum around these chords you'll figure it out. 
E Aadd9 (A w/ open b) E A B 

E 
fried clams from the diner, 
A E 
diesel on the wind 
E 
gorge ourselves on caviar 
A B 
when the boat comes in 
E 
wait for someone neutral to 
Eadd4 E 
reckon up the score 
E 
grease on the walls of the kitchen, dried 
A B E 
blood on the living room floor 

Same as Break 1 

E 
you there in your nightgown, 
Eadd4 E 
head all full of dreams 
E 
all the things we've sewn together are 
Eadd4 B 
splitting at the seams 
E 
try to cauterize the wound 
A E 
just get nowhere fast 
E 
holding each other for dear life, 
A B E 
shielding ourselves from the blast 

Same as Break 2 except end on an E barre chord.
