Key: C
Intro: C  F  Am  G  F 

C                               F 
Ceiling tiles are falling down, selling secrets between now 
Am                           G       F 
And defeated pasts on last defense 
    C                                        F 
The walls can?t keep the warm in here, this busted house of cans of beer 
 Am                             G     F 
Aluminum, some plaster and some fear 

C               F                   Am 
There are her bones, there are the fossils 
               G     F 
There near the sewer pipe 
C               F               Am 
There, between floors, between wars 
            G      F 
There on a two-by-four 
   Em                                  F 
Harmonic notes still humming from her lyre 
     C             G        F 
Just set my little soul on fire 

F            Am 
Oh oh oh, oh oh,    oh 
F            Am 
Oh oh oh, oh oh,    oh 

F                           Am 
  In the shape of my latest sin 
F                         Am 
  In the wake of soon moving - on 
F                                 Am 
  Though this house is crumbling down 
      G                         F 
She?s whispering her last words now 

F                               Am 
  Did he love her there on the floor?  
                       (When he pressed his mark in that knotted board, pressed an oath in that knotted board) 
F                                     Am 
  Just two names, one shape, tangled minor chords 
                                     (A heart around their sweet accord, wrapped around their love and stored) 
F                                  Am 
  The first day, got away, then so many more 
                                               (A decade past, and then a score) 
    G       C       Am                                    G 
Now winter falls, decay and dark creating art showing the world just where you really are 

   F        C          G      C 
Oh sweet Louise, since eighty-three 
      F       C                  G 
While paneling and pyramids fall down 
    F        C        G    C 
Oh, sweet Louise, now I believe 
   F             C                     G 
In rafters in this beat-up, blue-neck town, 
   F              G                C 
In turning tides, in me, in hidden vows.

C  F  Am  G  F 

C               F                   Am 
There are her bones, there are the fossils 
               G     F   G   
There near the sewer pi--ipe 

C               F                   Am 
There are her bones, there are the fossils 
                 G     F 
Unfinished song I complete 
C               F                   Am 
There on his throne, here in their castle 
             G   F 
My Pygmalion ivory 
C          F               Am 
Here on my own, like this home 
                G         F 
The landlord collects his fee 
C            F           Am 
I?m growing old, I'm so alone, 
Am 
These ceiling tiles are falling down 
    G                F 
I?m seeing what I?ve got to see 

F            Am 
Oh oh oh, oh oh,    oh 
F            Am 
Oh oh oh, oh oh,    oh 

F            Am 
Oh oh oh, oh oh, 

   F        C          G      C 
Oh sweet Louise, since eighty-three 
      F       C                  G 
While paneling and pyramids fall down 
    F        C        G    C 
Oh, sweet Louise, now I believe 
   F            C                G 
In rafters in a rugged Worcester town, 
   F              G                C 
In turning tides, in me, in hidden vows.
