Capo on 3

Eb     x65343
Ebsus4 x65344
Ab     466544
Ab/Eb  x66544
Bb     6x3336
Cm     x35543

     |Eb   Ebsus4|Eb         Ebsus4    |Eb       Ab Bb|Eb
Now I know I was served in a big silver chair
   |Eb                  Ab|Eb            Ab        |Bb   Ab Ab |Bb
But you seemed to think I deserved all indulgence I dared
|                                   |
  We shared the same the same golden spoon
|                          |           
 Unaware of who was feeding whom 
    |                          |             |Eb      Ab/Eb |Eb
Back then at the start we could eat anyone we cared

I should've know you was full by the way that you hand it to me
We both got so old I couldn't say how we planned it to be
No need to pull any punch
Love maxims for lunch
With the fresh broken heart you will eat with anyone that's agreeing

       |Cm         |        Bb              |Eb            
We were full on caprese, we laughed while we dine
|Cm                  |Bb                              |Ab         | 
   I served the entrée, you served the spirits and the wine
   |Cm  |         |                             |
But time heals, and while we laughed through our meals
 |              |                     |Ab     |Bb        
I cheated desire, fading and tired and pine

So won't you RSVP now, say it right to my face
Have a maxim more for the road and let's get out of this place
I spent to long on the queue, you overdrank the Le Tour
Let's get back to wafers and water, I can't stand the pace

I spent too long on the mike, while you were loving to type
And now that we've eaten we can both say what the hell we like
