 |G       (Gadd2   G       Gadd2)        |Em  (Em7add5    Em   Em7add5)|
It takes a fool to phone a fool when they both've said it all
We make the rule and bemoan the rule that neither soul should call

   |C                D              |Em              F   |C         |Em 
But love that was is love that is, demands to always be unchanged
    Dsus4                       
But then all lovers are deranged

[chorus; double-time feel]

|G                 |Em                   |C                   |

We walk away with memories and clutch them to our hearts
We're disembodied entities, we loved in fits and starts
A love like wine intoxicates, it drives all those who drink insane
But then all lovers are deranged

[repeat chorus]

|G        |Em     |C     |C    C\ |

[bridge; double-time]

|A5     A6    A5   A6            |G5 G6  G5 G6 |F5  F6   F5  F6  |C5  C6  C5 C6
   You know that you don't really fall in love unless you're seventeen

|A5      A6  A5       A6        |G5   G6    G5  G6   |F5   F6  F5   F6  |C5  C6
  Then break your word, let your spirits fly, but you can't know what it means

    C5   C6  |B5 B6  B5 B6   |A5 A6  A5  A6  |D5 D6  D5 D6 |F5 F6  F5 F6 |
Unless you're seventeen

                                              [2/4][4/4]
|B5 B6  B5 B6   |A5 A6  A5  A6  |D5 D6  D5 D6 |D A |C    |     |     |     |

It takes a fire to start a fight and differences remain
We have the right to think we're right, we're addicts feigning shame
For love recalled is love reborn, we're determined to revive the pain
But then all lovers are deranged

All lovers are deranged

It takes a fool to phone a fool when they both've said it all
We made the rule, bemoan that neither soul should call
