She was [Am]sixteen and [Em]six feet tall

In a [D]crowd of teenagers comin' [C]out of the zoo

She [Am]stumbled started to [Em]slip and fall

Teeter-[D]tottered on the top of patent [C]leather shoes

I [Am]happened to [Em]catch her and said,

"maybe [D]these ruby shoes are a [C]little cumbersome for you"

Verse 2:

But not as shaky as I must have seemed
Talkin' junk through her giggle, little teenage dream
And on the phone I could not compete
My dumb-love fake competence was getting weak
For a sec' I thought I sounded sweet
But sure 'nough in a gruff, faint voice
I heard myself speak

Chorus:

[D]I could stay a [A]while

But [C]sooner or later [G]I'll break your smile

[D]And I can [A]tell a joke

But [C]one of these days [G]I'm bound to choke

[D]And we could share a [A]kiss

But I [C]feel like I can't go [G]through with this

And [D]I bet we could [A]build a home

But I [C]know the right thing [G]for me to do

Is to leave you [Am]alone

Leave you [Am]alone, [Em]now

Verse 3:

I'm beginning to like you
So you probably won't get what I'm going to do
I'm walkin' away from you
It probably don't make much sense to you
But I'm trying to save you
From all of the things that I'll probably say or do

I'll probably do


Chorus:

I could stay a while
But sooner or later I'll break your smile
And I can tell a joke
But one of these days I'm bound to choke
And we might share a kiss
But I feel like a can't go through with this
And I bet we could build a home
But I know the right thing for me to do
Is to leave you alone
Leave you alone, now


Verse 4:

You'll probably call me a fool
And say I'm doin' exactly what a coward would do
And I'm beginning to like you
What a shame it's a lame way to live
But what can I do?
I hope you appreciate what I do
I'm a martyr for my love for you
A martyr for my love for you, now
A martyr for my love for you
A martyr for my love for you
