House of Love (Difford/Tilbrook)
INTRO:  A D (4x)



G#                 D#                F#

   She was full of lies and boredom,

           C#

It came as no surprise

     A                E

That she would cheat.

               F#             E

Her nails were long and sharp,

               A              G#

But she didn't play the harp.

              D#                F#

She wasn't an angel I told her,

               C#

But she wasn't able

        A               E

To understand my words,

              B

Rich pickings in reverse.



 C       Fm

I wasn't Shakespeare

     C

It's simple,

          Bbm

Did she expect me

   F#

To kiss her feet?



REFRAIN:



  A           G

A very acidic tongue

        A

Waggled in her head

     G

Naaa-aaa-aua-hua-anaaua

A                G

Life was lots of fun

           C

At times I had to smile,

   B             E

In front of everyone

              C#m

We seemed the best of friends

D             Bm

Life had just begun

            C             Am

When on the roof a tile began to slip,

    B                G#

The house of love caved in and that was it.



                D#               F#

She was full of tears by nature,

           C#

It came to me so clearly

A                E

She would creep.

              F#        E

Her eyes were stale and spun,

             A      G#

Like marbles in the sun.

             D#                   F#

She wasn't a princess I told her,

         C#

And so I witnessed

            A           E

The slaying of my life,

          B

It lasted half the night.



 C       Fm

I wasn't Jesus

  C

Believe me,

             Bbm

Our love was seedless

    F#

And incomplete.





REFRAIN



AD LIB:  G#

         A



REFRAIN



            D# F# C# A

That was it

             G# D# F# C# A

Oh, that was it            (3x)
