Music is a universal language, and needs not be translated. With it soul speaks to soul
G Exhibit A, Bm Em We are friends in a sleeping bag, splitting the heat G C G C We have one filthy pillow to share and your lips are in my hair G Bm Someone upstairs has a rat that we laughed at Em And people are drinking G C G C And singing Van Halen and Slayer on a ukulele tearStandard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
GExhibit B Bm Well, we found an apartment EmIt's not much to look at G C A futon on a floor G C Torn-off desktop for a door G Bm All the decor's made of milk crates and duct tape EmAnd if we have sex G C They can hear us through the floor G C But we don't do that anymore G Em And I lay there wondering, what is the matter? G Em Is this a matter of worse or of better? G Em You took the blanket, so I took the bedsheet G Em But I would have held you if you'd only CLet me
GExhibit C BmLook how quaint Em And how quiet and private G C Our paychecks have bought us a condo in town G C It's the nicest flat around G Bm You picked a mattress and had it delivered Em And I walked upstairs G C And the sight of it made my heart pound G C And I wrapped my arms around me G Em And I stood there wondering, what is the matter? G Em Is this a matter of worse or of better? G Em You walked right past me and straightened the covers G Em C But I would still love you if you wanted a lover C Em D/F♯ G Cdim/G♯ Am Bm C But you said, 'All the money in the world won't buy a bed so big and wide, Em D/F♯ G Cdim/G♯ Am Bm C to guarantee that you won't acci - dentally touch me in the night.'
GExhibit D BmNow we're both mostly paralyzed Em G C Don't know how long we've been lying here in fear G C Too afraid to even feel G Bm I find my glasses and you turn the light out Em Roll off on your side G C Like you've rolled away for years G C Holding back those king-size tears G Em And I still don't ask you, what is the matter? G Em Is this a matter of worse or of better? G You take the heart failure EmI'll take the cancer G Em C I've long stopped wondering why you don't answer
GExhibit E Bm Em You can certainly see how fulfilling a life G C G C From the cost and size of stone of our final resting home G Bm We got some nice ones right under a cherry tree Em G C You and me lying the only way we know G C Side by side and still and cold G Em And I finally ask you, what was the matter? G Em Was it a matter of worse or of better? G Em You stretch your arms out and finally face me G You say I would have told you Em C If you'd only asked me Em C If you'd only asked me Em C If you'd only asked me
