Verse 1 Chords: G So you just stepped out of the fDront of my house and I'll nCever see you again. G I closed my eyes for a sDecond and when they oCpened You weren't there. G And the door shut shut I was Dvacuum packed, Shrink-wCrapped out of air G And the spine collapsed and the eDyes rolled back To stCare at my starving brain,

Chorus chords

G And fully clothed, C I float aGway (I'll fDloat away) GDown the Forth CInto the sea, I think I'll save suicide for another dayG.

Verse 2

Use verse 1 chords And I picture this corpse on the M8 hearse And I half run away to sleep on a rolled up coat Against the window with the strobe of the sun And the life I've led Am I ready to leap is there peace beneath The roar of the Forth road bridge? On the Northern side there's a Fife of mine and a boat in the port for me, Final Chorus: G And fully cClothed, I float Gaway (I'll fDloat away) GDown the Forth, iCnto the sea C I'll steer myself through drunken waves These manic gulls scream it's okay Take your life give it a shake Gather up all your loose change I think I'll save suicide for another year.G C G C
