Hold On to Yourself  Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

[F] [-] [Dm] [-] [Am]  
[Am]I'm so far away from you
[F]Pacing up and down my room
[Dm]Does Jesus only love a man who [Am]loses?
[Am]I turn on the radio
[F]There's some cat on the saxophone
[Dm]Laying down a litany of [Am]excuses
[Am]There's madhouse longing in my baby's eyes
[F]She rubs the lamp between her thighs
[Dm]And hopes the genie comes out [Am]singing
[Am]She lives in some forgotten song
[F]And moves like she is zombie-strong
[Dm]Breathes steady as the pendulum keeps [Am]swinging
[C] [-] [G] [-] [Am]  
[Am]You better hold on to yourse[F]lf[Am]
[F] [-] [Dm] [-] [Am]  
[Am]Well, cities rust and fall to ruin
[F]Factories close and cars go cruisin'
[Dm]In around the borders of her [Am]vision
[Am]She says ooh
As [F]Jesus makes the flowers grow
[Dm]All around the scene of her coll[Am]ision
You know I wou[C]ld, [G] yes, I would[Am]
[Am]I would [F]hold on to [Am]yourself
[F] [-] [Dm] [-] [Am]  
In the middle of the night
I try my best to chase outside
The phantoms and the ghosts and fairy-girls
On 1001 nights like these
She mutters open sesame and Ali Baba and his forty thieves
Launch her off the face of the world
You know one day I'll come back and I'd hold on to yourself
To yourself, I'd hold on to yourself
Ooh baby, I'm a 1000 miles away
And I just don't know what to say
Cause Jesus only loves a man who bruises
But darling, we can clearly see
It's all life and fire and lunacy
And excuses and excuses and excuses
Well, you know if I could, I would
I'd lie right down and I'd hold on to yourself
Yeah, I would lie right down and I would hold on to yourself
One day I'll come back to you and I'd hold on to yourself
Yeah, I'm gonna come back, gonna lie down
And I would hold on to yourself
Yeah, to yourself
