     Intro:

           BR  Bbm  Db  Ab  R1  Bbm  Db  Ab  R2

     Basic chord progression over lyrics: Bbm  Db       Ab
     
     You wrap your arms around    R1
     A feeling that surrounds   R2
     Like liquid peppermint   R1
     Just taste the drinks that she served   Bbm Db Ab 

     And this feeling shimmers down your spine
     Love comes in colors I can't deny
     All that matters is love, love, your love   BR

     You're sleeping in your bed   R2
     Just rest your weary head   R1
     Maybe you shouldn't care   R2
     Throw away those dreams and dare

     Solo (kind of; there is some singing over this):
