[Verse 1] 
[F]It's time for me to be on [E7]my way I [Am7]know
I've got [Dm]business to conduct
And I've got [F/A]places to [Gsus]go[G]
[G/F] But I can't [F]help looking at her [E7]sleeping in[Am7]stead
Another [Dm7]morning I'll have trouble climbing [F/A]out of this [G]bed
[F/G]Because [C]- she's [C]such [Dm]a [C/E]temp - [F]ta - [G]tion[F/G]
[C] It's [C]dri - [Dm]ving [C/E]me [F]cra - [G]zy[F/G]
[C] And it's [C]my [Dm]fas - [C/E]ci - [F]na - [G]tion
That's [Am]making me act this way [D]---[G/D] [D]
And [Am7]I know what all of my [D]fri[G/D]ends [F]say
They're [C/G]afraid that I'm losing my [G]touch
But she's such a temp - [G/C]ta - [C]tion
[G/C] [C] [E/G#] [E+/G#] [E/G#] [E+/G#] [E/G#] 
[Verse 2] 
[F]I look so tired cause I [E7]don't get much [Am7]sleep
And I've got [Dm]too many commitments that are [F/A]too hard to [Gsus]keep[G]
And I [F]try to be rational and I [E7]try to be [Am7]wise
But it [Dm7]all gets blown to pieces when I [F/A]look in her [G]eyes
[F/G]Because [C]- she's [C]such [Dm]a [C/E]temp - [F]ta - [G]tion[F/G]
[C] And [C]no - [Dm]thing [C/E]can [F]save [G]me[F/G]
[C] But I [C]might [Dm]find [C/E]sal - [F]va - [G]tion
If [Am7]I can tear myself a[D]way[G/D] [D]
Cause [Am7]I know what all of my [D]fri[G/D]ends [F]say
There's a [C/G]danger in wanting too [G]much
But she's such a temp - [G/C]ta - [C]tion
[G/C] [C] [E/G#] [E+/G#] [E/G#] [E+/G#] 
[G/C] [C] [G/C] [C] [E/G#] [E+/G#] [E/G#] [E+/G#] [E/G#] 
[Verse 3] 
[F]I should be leaving but I [E7]can't cut [Am7]loose
I have my [Dm]reasons for resistance but I [F/A]have no ex[Gsus]cuse[G]
And I [G/F]lose my com[F]posure I could [E7]use some re[Am7]straint
I never [Dm7]claimed to be a hero and I [F/A]never said [G]I was a [C]saint
She's [C]such [Dm]a [C/E]temp - [F]ta - [G]tion[F/G]
[C] It's [C]dri - [Dm]ving [C/E]me [F]cra - [G]zy[F/G]
[C] And it's [C]my [Dm]fas - [C/E]ci - [F]na - [G]tion
That's [Am]making me act this way [D]---[G/D] [D]
And [Am7]I can just hear all of my [D]fri[G/D]ends [F]say
Better [C/G]watch out, you're losing your [G]touch
But she's such a temp - [G/C]ta - [C]tion[G/C] [C]
[E/G#] Yes [E+/G#]she is
[E/G#] She's [E+/G#]such a temp - [G/C]ta - [C]tion
[G/C] [C] Yes she is
[E/G#] [E+/G#] Oh yes she is
[E/G#] [E+/G#]She's such a temp - [G/F]ta - [F]tion [Gsus4] [F/G] [C]
