(intro) Am Am7M Am7 Am7M
[Am]There's perfume burning [Am7M]in the air
[Am7]Bits of beauty [Am6]everywhere
[Bm7]Shrapnel flying, s[E7]oldier hit the d[Am7]irt[Bm7] [E7]
[Am]She comes so close you f[Am7M]eel her then[Am7]
She tells you [Am6]no and no again
[Bm7]Your lip is cut [E7]on the edge
Of her [D7]pleated skirt[E7]
Blue A[Am]lert[Am7M] [Am7] [Am7M]
[Am]Visions of her d[Am7M]rawing near
[Am7]Arise, abide, and disapp[Am6]ear
[Bm7]You try to slow it dow[E7]n it doesn't wor[Am7]k
[Bm7] [E7]  
[Am]It's just another n[Am7M]ight I guess
[Am7]All tangled up in n[Am6]akedness
[Bm7]You even touch you[E7]rself you're such a fli[D7]rt
[Bm7] Bl[E7]ue Alert[Am7] [Am7M]
[Dm7]You know how n[E7]ights like this be[Am7]gin
The kind of knot your h[D7]eart gets in
[Dm7]Any way you t[E7]urn is going to h[Am7]urt[D7]
[Dm7]There's perfume b[E7]urning in the air
[Am7]Bits of beauty e[D7]verywhere
[Dm7]Shrapnel flying, s[E7]oldier hit the d[D7]irt[E7]
Blue Al[Am]ert[Am7M] [Am7] [Am7M]
[Am]She breaks the r[Am7M]ules so you can see[Am7]
She's wilder t[Am6]han you'll ever be
[Bm7]You talk rel[E7]igion but she w[Am7]on't convert[E7]
[Am]Her body's twenty [Am7M]stories high
[Am7]You try to look aw[Am6]ay, you try
[Bm7]But all you want to [E7]do is get there [D7]first[E7]
Blue Al[Am]ert[Am7M]
