Well, [Gm]guy in a skeleton costume
[Bb]Comes up to the guy in the [Eb]Superman suit
Runs through him with a [Gm]broadsword
I flipped the television off
Bring [Bb]all the bright lights [Eb]up
Turn the radio [Gm]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
But then you [Gm]came in and we locked eyes
You [C]kicked the ashtray over as we came toward each other
Stubbed my [Eb]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
[Gm]What will I [F]do when I [C]don't have [Gm]you
To hold onto in the dar[Bb]k?    [Gm]

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

You throw the attic window open
And I [Bb]throw myself all around [Eb]you
And night comes to Talla[Gm]hassee
[C] I don't know why it's gotten harder[F] to keep myself away
[Eb]Thought I'd finally beat the feeling back
[D] It all came back today
And then we [Gm]fell down and we locked arms
We [C]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
[Gm]What will I [F]do when I [C]don't have [Gm]you
When I finally get what I des[Bb]erve?
