                              She says it's OK
    G
The rent just went on entertainment
     Am          F
But, who's gonna say?
Cadd9  C  Cadd9  C      F   Fsus2   F   Fsus2
                   It's just not my day
      G
She's got enough stuff to get real tough
      Am              F
Well, she's not gonna play
    Cadd9      C         Cadd9        C
The holiday is over, the honeymoon is over
    F        Fsus2  F    Fsus2
The garden's over - grown
    G
The trust is rusted, the link's been busted
    Am            F
The seeds are sown
    Cadd9      C     Cadd9         C
The signs of regret, what do you expect?
F    Fsus2  F    Fsus2
Echo in the hall
    G
The ghost of the picture still haunts the master
Am               F
Bedroom mirrored wall
 
[Chorus]
 
Dm                      Em
I suppose you'd say she made a fool of me
F                  G
Oh, but she has authority
 
[Verse 2]
 
Cadd9 C Cadd9 C    F  Fsus2  F  Fsus2
                It used to be fine
G
Days full of music, nights full of music
Am            F
Music all the time
Cadd9 C Cadd9 C    F  Fsus2 F  Fsus2
                 Invisible  light
  G
I try my best but I transgressed
   Am         F
It used to be fine
    Cadd9       C        Cadd9    C
The chances are used up, finances used up
    F   Fsus2  F  Fsus2
The energy is  low
G
Letters are returned, lovers are spurned
  Am              F
Delivered quite a blow
    Cadd9      C         Cadd9           C
The signs of disaster, I wouldn't put it past her
F        Fsus2  F   Fsus2
Dagger's in the dark
G
The stale perfume in her old room
Am         F
Heart of a shark
 
[Chorus]
 
Dm                      Em
I suppose you'd say she made a slave of me
F               G
Oh, but she has authority
 
[Solo]
 
Cadd9 C Cadd9 C  F Fsus2  F Fsus2 G  Am  F   (x4)
Dm  Em  F  G
 
[Verse 3]
 
Cadd9 C Cadd9 C   F Fsus2           F Fsus2
                I guess that that's all
    G
The curtain comes down and the circus leaves town
Am              F
Leaves begin to fall
Cadd9 C Cadd9 C   F     Fsus2       F Fsus2
                I guess that that's it
    G
The world keeps spinning, people keep sinning
    Am                   F
And all the rest is just bullshit
    Cadd9            C           Cadd9           C
The shadow's getting longer, the widow's gettin' younger
    F        Fsus2 F   Fsus2
The cup doth over  flow
    G
The luxury of pity, babe this wasn't pretty
Am          F
On with the show
Cadd9     C          Cadd9        C
Life is a tangle, of one night triangles
   F       Fsus2   F   Fsus2
Of tangled-up life limbs
    G
You sleep like a baby precious as a ruby
Am           F
Goodbye everything
 
[Outro]
 
Dm                      Em
I suppose you'd say she made a fool of me
F                 G
Oh, but she had authority
 
Cadd9 C Cadd9 C  F Fsus2  F Fsus2 G  Am  F
Cadd9 C Cadd9 C  F Fsus2  F Fsus2 G  Am  F

                  She says it's OK
The rent just went on entertainment
But who's gonna say
It's just not my day
She's got enough stuff to get real tough
Well, she's the girl who plays
The holiday is over, the honeymoon is over
The garden's overgrown
The trust is rusted, the link's been busted
The seeds are sown
The sounds of my breath, what do you expect
Echo in the hall
The ghost of the picture still haunts the master
Bedroom mirrored wall

I suppose you'd say she made a fool of me
Oh, but she has authority

It used to be fine
Days full of music, nights full of music
Music all the time
Invisible light
I try my best but I transgressed
It used to be fine
The chances are used up, the finances used up
The energy is low
Letters are returned, lovers are spurned
Delivered quite a blow
The signs of disaster, I wouldn't put it past her
The dagger's in the dark
The stale perfume in her old room
Heart of a shark

I suppose you'd say she made a slave of me
Oh, but she has authority

I guess that that's all
The curtain comes down and the circus leaves town
The leaves begin to fall
I guess that that's it
The world keeps spinning, people keep sinning
And all the rest is just bullshit
The shadow's getting longer, the widow's gettin' younger
The cup doth overflow
The luxury of pity, babe this wasn't pretty
On with the show
Life is a tangle, a one night triangle
Some tangle of life limbs
You sleep like a baby precious as a ruby
Goodbye everything

I suppose you'd say she made a fool of me
Oh, but she had authority
