My coffee's cold, my paper's old, my heart is sold to melancholia
              |Eb                |                 |E            |Eb   |
My clothes are torn, my shoes are worn, my heart is borne to melancholia

 Ahhh...

A strange surprise, what I despised in other guys was here in me
They lose their girl, they lose their world then they cry for all to see

    |E     F#     |C#      |E     F#       |C#    |     
I've never felt so bad, the virus drives me mad

The sheets are gray, left since the day she went away, I lost all power
The dust is thick, the dog is sick 
The kids have picked most all the flowers

(C# C# C     C   C B     B   B Bb    Bb    F)
