Verse 1:

D G Bm A D
On certain Sundays in November when the weather bothers me
(D) G Bm A D
I empty drawers of other summers where my shadows used to be
(D) G Bm A D
And she is standing by the water as her smile begins to curl
(D) G Bm A
In this or any other summer she is something altogether different
A
Never just an ordinary girl [riff or D G Bm A]

Verse 2:
D G Bm A D
And in the evenings on Long Island when the colours start to fade
(D) G Bm A D
She wears a silly yellow hat that someone gave her when she stayed
(D) G Bm A D
I didn’t think that she returned it we left New York in a whirl
(D) G Bm A
Time expands and then contracts when you are spinning in the grips of
A G
someone who is not an ordinary girl

Chorus 1:
A D G
When you sleep you find your mother in the night
D G
But she stays just out of sight
D F#m A
So there isn’t any sweetness in the dreaming
G A D G
And when you wake the morning covers you with light
D G
And it makes you feel alright
D F#m A Dsus2 (to riff or D G Bm A)
But it’s just the same hard candy you’re remembering again

Verse 3:
D G Bm A D
You send your lover off to China then you wait for her to call
(D) G Bm A D
You put your girl up on a pedestal then you wait for her to fall
(D) G Bm A D
I put my summer’s back in a letter and I hide it from the world
(D) G Bm A
All the regrets you can’t forget are somehow pressed upon a picture
A G
In the face of such an ordinary girl

Chorus 2:
A D G
And when you sleep you find your mother in the night
D G
But she stays just out of sight
D F#m A
So there isn’t any sweetness in the dreaming
G A D G
And when you wake the morning showers you with light
D G
And it makes you feel alright
D F#m A D
But it’s just the same hard candy you’re remembering again
G Em A
Again, again, again
D G A D
It’s just the same hard candy you’re remembering again
G Em A
Again, again, again
D G A
And it’s just the same hard candy you’re remembering again

On certain Sundays in November when the weather bothers me
I empty drawers of other summer’s, where my shadows used to be
She is standing by the water as her smile begins to curl
In this or any other summer, she is something all together different
Never just an ordinary girl.
And in the evenings on Long Island when the colors start to fade
She wears a silly yellow hat that someone gave her when she stayed
I didn’t think that she returned it we left New York in a whirl
Time expands and then contracts, when you are spinning
In the grips of someone who is not an ordinary girl

And when you sleep you find your mother in the night
But she stays just out of sight, so there isn’t any sweetness in the dreaming
And when you wake the morning covers you with light, and it makes you feel alright
But it’s just the same hard candy you’re remembering again

You send your lover off to China, then you wait for her to call
You put your girl up on a pedestal, then you wait for her to fall
I put my summer’s back in a letter, and I hide it from the world
All the regrets you can’t forget are somehow pressed upon a picture
In the face of such an ordinary girl

And when you sleep you find your mother in the night
But she fades just out of sight, so there isn’t any sweetness in the dreaming
And when you wake the morning showers you with light
And it makes you feel alright, but it’s just the same hard candy
You’re remembering again
It’s just the same hard candy
You’re remembering again
And it’s just the same hard candy
You’re remembering again

Go ask her to come around and see me late after dark
Don’t ask me to come around, then wait to if there’s a spark
