lyrics

AMELIA, I'VE SEEN OTHER GIRLS

verse: Em C D G Em C D D
chorus: Am C G D

we can't be friends
so it's best to pretend
we never were, it depends
a point of view is a sound defense
the charms that you save
pointing out all you gave
but the same old behaviour
digs the same old grave

[chorus]
amelia, i've seen
other girls be as mean
& i guess that coming clean
might have changed what might have been

bless you i've heard
each italicized word
who could miss it? i'm sure
the bitter pill was the cure
don't you mess with my head
i will lie in the bed
that i made & the wedding
will happen instead

[ch]
[verse solo]
[ch] x2

end on Em riff
