The remainder hardly needs tabbing.

Hey Wendy, [E]let me in, I wanna be your friend,

I wanna guard[A] your dreams and visions.         [B]
Just w[E]rap your legs 'round these velvet rims,
And strap[A] your hands across my engines.       [B]
And Toge[A]ther we could break this tra[Amaj7]p,
We'll r[F#m]un till we drop and, baby we'[Amaj7]ll never go back.       [E]          [B4]
Oh will you walk wit[A]h me out on the wire?            [Amaj7]
Girl, I'm jus[F#m]t a scared and a lonely rid[Amaj7]er,
But I go[C]tta know how it feels,
I want[C#m7] to know if love is wild, baby,
I wa[A]nt to know if love is[B4] real.
(CHORUS)

(sorry for the instrumental : I'll see to it one day)

The amus[Em]ement [Em9]park rises bol[Em]d and sta[Em9]rk

For the last verse the lead guitar plays the main riff

Well, The highwa[E]ys jammed with broken heroes

On a last [A]chance power drive         [B]
W[E]ell  everybody's out on the run tonight
But there's no pl[A]ace left to hide     [B]
Toge[A]ther, Wendy, we can live with the [Amaj7]sadness
I'll[F#m] love you with all the madne[Amaj7]ss in my soul      [E]      [B4]
Oh someda[A]y girl, I don't know when, we[Amaj7]'re gonna get to that place      [F#m]
Where we r[Amaj7]eally wanna go       [E]
And we'll wal[C#m7]k in the sun
Till then tramp[A]s like us
[B4]Baby we were born to run.[E]
