G               Am              Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
G               Am              Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway

F                 C                    G
 It took me a year to believe it was over
F                   C                     Bm    Em
 And it took me two more to get over the loss
F          C                              G
 I took a beating when you wrote me those letters
F           C                    D
 And every time I remembered the taste of your lip gloss

G              Am               Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
G              Am               Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
G                Am                     Cm         G
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
    G              Am               Cm         G
But Enid we never really knew each other anyway

F            C                      G
 There were times when I wanted to hurt you
F                C                        Bm    Em
 And there were times when I know that I did
F            C                            G
 There were times when I thought I would kill you
F              C                    D
 But can you blame me I was only a kid

Am         D          G                     Em
 Tell me why we never really respected each other
Am             D           G                 Em
 And tell me why I never believed you were a person too
Am          D                         G          Em
 I always thought that you fancied my brother
Am               D               G              Em
 I may not have liked it, oh but memory is a strange thing
        Am    D                  G
Oh, and Enid? Enid I remember you

G              Am               Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
G              Am               Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
G                Am                     Cm         G
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
    G              Am               Cm         G
But Enid we never really knew each other anyway

F                 C                    G
 It took me a year to believe it was over
F                      C                     Bm    Em
Oh, and it took me two more to get over the loss
F          C                              G
 I took a beating when you wrote me those letters
F           C                      D
 And every time you told me to get lost

Am             D                           G                    Em
 Now, it's not fair to say that it's cause I was three inches shorter then
Am            D                      G                        Em
 And it's not fair to say it's cause I was only fifteen years old
Am              D                       G              Em
 But maybe it's fair to say there was a lack of communication
Am              D               G                  Em
 I took a phone message, oh and speaking of communication
        Am    D
Oh, and Enid, Enid you caught a cold

G                      Am                         Cm                         G
I can get a job, I can pay the phone bills, I can cut the lawn, cut my hair, cut out my cholesterol
G                    Am                    Cm                     G
I can work overtime, I can work in a mine, I can do it all for you but I don't want to. 

G              Am               Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
G              Am               Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
G                Am                     Cm         G
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
    G              Am               Cm         G
But Enid we never really knew each other anyway 
G              Am               Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
G              Am               Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
G              Am               Cm         G
Enid we never really knew each other anyway
