[Am] [F] [Am] [E]  
[Am] [G] [C] [G#]  
O[Am]utside the c[F]afe by the cr[Am]acker factor[E]y
You were pra[Am]cticing a m[G]agic tr[C]ick[G#]
And my th[Am]oughts got r[F]ude, as you t[Am]alked and ch[E]ewed
On the l[Am]ast of your p[G]ick and m[C]ix[G#]
Said you?re mistaken if you're th[Am]inking that I h[F]aven't been caught
[Am]cold before[E]
As you [Am]bit into your st[G]rawberry la[C]ce[G#]
And then a flip in your att[Am]ention in the f[F]orm of a g[Am]obstopper[E]
Is all you had l[Am]eft and it was g[G]oing to wa[C]ste[G#]
[Am]Your past-times, consisted of the strange
And twisted and deranged
And I love that little game you had called
Crying lightning
And how you like to aggravate the ice-cream man on rainy afternoons
Am (Strum Once)
The next time that I c[Am]aught my own refl[F]ection
It was [Am]on it's way to m[E]eet you
[Am]Thinking of exc[G]uses to p[C]ostpone[G#]
You never look like y[Am]ourself from the s[F]ide
But your p[Am]rofile could not h[E]ide
The fact you [Am]knew I was appr[G]oaching yo[C]ur throne[G#]
With folded [Am]arms you occup[F]ied the bench like t[Am]oothache
[E]Stood and puffed your c[Am]hest out like you n[G]ever lost a [C]war[G#]
And though I t[Am]ried so not to s[F]uffer the in[Am]dignity of a re[E]action
There [Am]was no cracks to gr[G]asp or gaps to [C]claw[G#]
And your[F] past-times, con[Dm]sisted of the strange
And t[Am]wisted and deranged
And I [Am]hate that little game you had called[F]
Crying l[Dm]ightning
And how you like to [Am]aggravate the icky man on rainy afternoons[F]
But [Am]not half as impossible as everyone assumes
You are[F] crying [Dm]lightning
Oh you were r[Am]eading a book about [Dm]some idiot
And t[F]elling me about ano[E]ther
I was [Am]so severely [Dm]underwhelmed
I thought I m[F]ight never re[E]cover
Straighten the r[Am]udder girl
And s[Dm]ail me up stairs
And [F]go and find somebody
Who ca[E]res
Well we [Am]might not be the p[Dm]erfect partners
But ton[F]ight we make a p[E]air
[Am]Your past-times, cons[Am]isted of the strange
And tw[Am]isted and deranged
And I h[Am]ate that little game you had called[F]
Crying l[Dm]ightning[Am]
Crying l[Am]ightning[F]
Crying l[Dm]ightning[Am]
Crying l[Am]ightning
Your[F] past-times, cons[Dm]isted of the strange
And t[Am]wisted and deranged
And I h[Am]ate that little game you had called[F]
