E               B
 Unsealed, on a porch that letter sat
A                        E
 Then you said, "I wanna leave it again"
E                    B
 Once I saw him on a beach of weathered sand
A                         E
 And on the sand, I wanna leave it again
E                    B
 On a weekend, wanna wish it all away, yeah
         A                                               E
And they called and I said that I want what I said and I called out again
E                      B
 And the reason oughta leave her calm, I know
A                                      E
 I said, "I don't know whether I'm the box or the bag"

   E                 B               A                           E
Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Yeah, but they don't wave
  E                         B                A                               E
I see them, round the front way, yeah, and I know and I know I don't want to stay. Make me cry

        I see, oh, I don't know why there's something else
E                     B
 I wanna drum it all away. Oh, I said, 
A                                        E
"I don't, I don't know whether there's a box or a bag"
   E                 B               A                           E
Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Yeah, but they don't wave
  E                         B                A                               E   B   A
I see them, round the front way, yeah, and I know and I know I don't want to stay at all
              E    B   A
I don't wanna stay
              E    B   A
I don't wanna stay
              E       B    A
I don't wanna stay, I don't
