lyrics

COULDN'T BE ANY WORSE

capo III (for L.)
verse: F Am Dm Am Bb F C C
chorus: Bb Bb F F Bb F C C

i'd been awake for hours
when i met you by the church
you'd recently been hurt
your face still wet with tears
i pointed to your bruises
& said it looks quite bad
you smiled but you were sad
& days turn into years

[chorus]
we couldn't be any worse...any worse
we could not be any worse for each other

i took you back to my place
the sun was coming up
i bandaged your cuts
as you critiqued my art
so i was most surprised
when you put your lips on mine
oh we were eye to eye
& heart to heart
