[Verse 1] 
[Dm]The night's like a whirlwind
Somebody's girlfriend is talkin[Am]g to me
But it's alright , she's saying that he's not that [Dm]he's gonna slap me
Or try to attack me, he's [Am]not the jealous type
[Dm]And I only need to get half an [Am]excuse and I'm away,
[Dm]But when there's no excuses that's [Am]much easier to say,

[Verse 2] 
(guitar 1 plays only this chord in this part)
[Dm]Somebody's partner is talking to me

And I knew how could she not she could have anyone she wants
And I'm struggling to think of an immediate response
(Guitar 2 plays this from the fourth verse)

[Last Cborus] 
And the fir[Em]st time it occurred that there was som[Bm]ething to destroy
[Am]I knew before the invitation [G]that there was [F#]this ploy

But [G]that is no excus[F#]e[Em]
