it's not a[C#m] silly little moment
It's not the [A]storm before the[E] calm
This is the [C#m]deep and dyin breath of
This love we've been w[A]orkin[E] on
Can't seem to[C#m] hold you like I want to
So I can [A]feel you in my [E]arms
Nobody's gon[C#m]na come and save you
We pulled too many f[A]alse [E]alarms
REFREIN:
We're goin [B]down
And you can[C#m] see it[A] too
We're goin d[B]own
And you know that w[C#m]e're d[A]oomed
My[C#m] dear, We're slow dancing in a [A]burnin r[E]oom

(PEDAL-STEEL RIF)
| C#m | A E | C#m | A E |

I was the[C#m] one you always dreamed of
You were the [A]one I tried to[E] draw
How dare you[C#m] say it's nothing to me
Baby, you're the only [A]light I ever[E] saw
I'll make the[C#m] most of all the sadness
You'll be a [A]bitch because you[E] can
You try to[C#m] hit me just hurt me
So you leave me feeling dirty
Because you [A]can't unde[E]rstand

REFREIN:
We're goin [B]down
And you can[C#m] see it[A] too
We're goin d[B]own
And you know that w[C#m]e're d[A]oomed
My[C#m] dear, We're slow dancing in a [A]burnin r[E]oom

SOLO: | C#m | A E | C#m | A E |

Go [C#m(7]cry about it why don't you  [B]     [A]
Go cry about it why don't you
Go cry about it why don't you
My[C#m] dear, We're slow dancing in a [A]burnin r[E]oom

Don't you think we oughta know by now
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we oughta know by now
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we oughta know by now

Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow
