Graham Parker Wrapping Paper - Graham Parker Lyrics

Last updated:

Intro E  /  Emaj7 / Amaj7  /  B  /    E

E 022100 Emaj7 021100 Amaj7 002120
Asus2 002200 B 004440

E Emaj7 Amaj7 Asus2
I've broken your glass, called someone a dirty name
E Asus2 B
Made a nuisance of myself in front of friends
E Emaj7 Amaj7 Asus2
I've dug my own grave, please don't let me lie in it
E A B E
Instead let's bury everything that caused us pain

CHORUS
E Emaj7 A Asus2
Speak to me now, speak to me darling
E Emaj7 A Asus2
You're not a princess I'm not Prince Charming
E Emaj7 A Asus2
Speak with your tongue, use body language
E Asus2 B E
and pull your skin like wrapping paper round my heart

Sometimes I feel the kick has gone, it gets mundane
So I team up with the devil and make hell
But I'll hang on in as long as I know I've got you
As long as I know love's a cure that makes me well

(CHORUS, Instrumental verse)

We move around, drag ourselves from town to town
Wrap up lots of gifts and toys and China tea
But they don't feel nothin', they're just inanimate
They just go in suitcases and fly away

CHORUS (last line x3), Repeat Intro
