 Gm
Well, guy in a skeleton costume
 BbEb
 Comes up to the guy in the Superman suit
 Gm
Runs through him with a broadsword

I flipped the television off
 BbEb
Bring all the bright lights up
 Gm
Turn the radio up loud
 C
  I don't know why I'm so persuaded
 F
  That if I think things through
 Eb
 Long enough and hard enough
 D
  I'll somehow get to you
 Gm
But then you came in and we locked eyes
 C
You kicked the ashtray over as we came toward each other
 Eb
Stubbed my cigarette out against the west wall
 D
  And quickly lit another
 Gm
 Look at that

Would you look at that?
 C
  We're throwing off sparks
 GmFCGm
 What will I do when I don't have you
 BbGm
To hold onto in the dark?     

 Gm
Yes, everybody's gonna need a witness
 BbEb
 Everybody's gonna need a little back up
 Gm
In case the scene gets nasty

You throw the attic window open
 BbEb
And I throw myself all around you
 Gm
And night comes to Tallahassee
 CF
  I don't know why it's gotten harder to keep myself away
 Eb
 Thought I'd finally beat the feeling back
 D
  It all came back today
 Gm
And then we fell down and we locked arms
 C
We knocked the dresser over as we rolled across the floor
 Eb
  I don't mean it when I tell you
 D
  That I don't love you anymore
 Gm
 Look at that

Would you look at that?
 C
 The way the ceiling starts to swerve
 GmFCGm
 What will I do when I don't have you
 Bb
When I finally get what I deserve?

 Gm
