  Song: How To Rent A Room

Tabbed by: D.C Berman

(verse)

[F-C]
No I don't really want to die
[F-C]
I only want to die in your eyes
[F-C]
I'm still here below the chandelier
[F-C}
Where they always used to read us our rights

I want to wander through the night
As a figure in the distance even to my own eye
Have you ever rented a room?
[F-Am]
Have you even ever rented a room?

(chorus)

[Dm-G]
An anchor lets you see the river move
[Em-Am]
But now that your evil dreams came true
[Dm-G]
There on your face
[Em-Am]
A row of teeth he'll come to replace

(verse)

I know you laughed when I left
But you really only hurt yourself
When you see your curtains move in the wind
You can bet I'm betting against you again

'Cause I'm a man who has a wife who has a mother
Who married one but she loved another
You're a tower without the bell
You're a negative wishing well

(chorus)

I should've checked the stable door
For the name of the sire and dam
You were always at the dog track
With your brother and all his friends

(verse)

Chalk lines around my body
Like the shore line of a lake
Your laughter made me nervous!
It made your body shake too hard

Now there's a lot of things that I'm gonna miss
Like thunder down country and the way water drips
When you're running for the door in the rain
[F]
Read the metro section
Read the metro section
[F-C]
Read the metro section see my name

(chorus)

[Dm-G]
No I didn't really want to die
[Em-Am]
I only wanted to die in your eyes
[Dm-G]
Grant me one last wish
[Em-Am]
Life should mean a lot less than this
[Dm-G]
Grant me one last wish
[Em-Am]
Life should mean a lot less than this
