VERSE 1
 
        F#m                     D                 Bm
I'm a puppet on a string, Tracy Island, time-traveling diamond
       F#m                             D                Bm
cutter shaped heartaches, that come to find ya, four in some velvet morning
F#m                            D               Bm
Years too late, she's a silver lining, lone ranger riding
           F#m               D                   Bm
Through an open space, in my mind when she's not right there beside me
 
 
CHORUS
 
F#m                D                       Bm
I go crazy 'cause here isn't where I wanna be
    F#m            D                      Bm
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory

And I can't help myself, all I wanna hear her say is "Are you mine?"
        F#m        D    Bm
Are you mine?
        F#m        D    Bm

I guess what I'm trying to say is I need the deep end, keep imagining meeting,
F#m                D                 Bm
Wished away entire lifetimes, unfair we're not somewhere
F#m              D             Bm
Misbehaving for days, great escape
              F#m                            D               Bm
Lost track of time and space, she's a silver lining climbing on my desire and

And I can't help myself, all I wanna hear her say is "Are you mine?"

Back there by the baby grand, did Mr. Winter Wonderland

Whyd You Only Call Me When You’re High Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Verse 1:
F#m          D     Bm       Em        F#m
The mirror's image tells me it's home time 
F#m          D          Bm               Em
But I'm not finished   'cause you're not by my side
F#m       D                          Bm       Em             F#m
And as I arrived I thought I saw you leaving, carrying your shoes
F#m          D                     Bm           Em           F#m
Decided that once again I was just dreaming  of bumping into you
 
Pre- Chorus:
F#m       D                     Bm
          Now it's three in the morning 
        Em                    F#m
And I'm trying to change your mind
F#m      D               Bm
Left you multiple missed calls
Bm        Em            F#m
And to my message, you reply
 
CHORUS
F#m    D                                   Bm       Em
       Why'd you only call me when you're high? 
F#m    D                                   Bm       Em
High,  why'd you only call me when you're high?
 
Verse 2:
 
F#m       D       Bm      Em
Somewhere darker, talking the same shite
F#m       D         Bm            Em
I need a partner,   well  are you out tonight?
F#m             D                    Bm       Em                                   F#m
It's harder and harder to get you to listen, more I get through the gears
F#m          D              Bm            Em          F#m
Incapable of making alright decisions and having bad ideas
 
Pre- Chorus:
F#m       D                     Bm
          Now it's three in the morning

And I'm trying to change your mind
F#m      D               Bm
Left you multiple missed calls
Bm        Em            F#m
And to my message, you reply
 
CHORUS
F#m    D                                   Bm       Em
       Why'd you only call me when you're high? 
F#m    D                                   Bm       Em
High,  why'd you only call me when you're high?
 
 
 
And I can't see you here, wondering where I might
It sorta feels like I'm running out of time
I haven't found what I was hoping to find
 
You said you gotta be up in the morning, gonna have an early night
And you're starting to bore me, baby, why'd you only call me when you're high?
 
Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?
Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?
Why'd you only ever phone me when you're high?
Why'd you only ever phone me when you're
High?

D          Bm
 Under the warning light

 And she had a broken arm,

It was close, so close that the walls were wet

No, you can't call me her name

 I thought she might understand

She was close, well you couldn't get much closer

VERSE
    Em        Bm      G       D
Her arms were folded most indignant
Em     Bm        G       D        Em    Bm
Not looking like she was soon to leave
  G                D           Em   Bm   G   D
I had to squint in order to believe
                Em                  Bm
And then like a butler pushing on a bookshelf
      G               D
And unveiling the unexpected
Em                  Bm                G                     D
I who was earlier reluctant was suddenly embarrassed and corrected.
Em               Bm        G                D   Em   Bm   G
How could such a creature survive in such a habitat?
 
Em G Bm
 
CHORUS
Bm                       Em
The secret door swings behind us
             Am
She's saying nothing
           Em
She's just giggling along
Bm                       Em
    Even if they were to find us
           Am             Bm          D
I wouldn't notice, I'm completely occupied
 
OUTRO
           G        Cm
At all the fools on parade
           Em                   Bm
Cavort and carry on for waiting eyes
               Am                       Bm
Ones you would rather be beside than in front of
          Am
But she's never been the kind
      D
To be hollowed by the stares
G        Cm                Em
Fools on parade frolic and fuck about
          Bm              Am                     Bm
To make a gaze turn to a scribble on a page by a picture
               Am
That holds her absence
           D
But you're daft to think she'd care
G          Cm      Em  Bm
Fools on parade
Am         Bm      Am   D
Fools on parade

Do Me A Favour Guitar Chords & Lyrics
INTRO F#m
 
 
VERSE 1
 
F#m
Well the morning was complete.
          F#m
There was tears on the steering wheel dripping on the seat,
F#m
Several hours or several weeks,
           F#m
I'd have the cheek to say they're equally as bleak!
 
F#m  C#m  C#m* Bm* A*  x4 / F#m  C#m Bm x4
 
        F#m                        C#m            Bm
It's the beginning of the end, the car went up the hill,
        F#m                           C#m              Bm
And disappeared around the bend, ask anyone they'll tell you that.
     F#m                             C#m                Bm
It's these times that it tends, the start to breaking up,
  F#m                         C#m            Bm
to start to fall apart. Oh! hold on to your heart.
 
 
CHORUS

    Do me a favour, break my nose!

    Do me a favour, tell me to go away!

    Do me a favour, stop asking questions!

She walked away while her shoes were untied,
      D                             C#m
And the eyes were all red, you could see that we've cried,
       Bm                         A
And I watched and I waited, 'till she was inside,
D                   C#m
forcing a smile and waving goodbye.
 
F#m          C#m            Bm
Curiousity becomes a heavy load,
F#m                  C#m        Bm
Too heavy to hold, too heavy to hold.
F#m             C#m         Bm
Curiousity becomes a heavy load,
F#m                     C#m             Bm
Too heavy to hold, will force you to be cold.

D                                            F#m         C#m
And do me a favour, and ask if you need some help!
         D                                      F#m       C#m
She said, do me a favour and stop flattering yourself!
          D                           F#m                  C#m
How to tear apart the ties that bind, perhaps fuck off, might be too kind,
       D                       C#m      Bm
Perhaps fuck off, might be too kind

Anticipation has a habit to set you up

For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Am                       F    E
Tonight there’ll be some love
Am                                   F              E
Tonight there'll be a ruckus yeah, regardless of what's gone before

I want to see all of the things that we've already seen
Am                           F              E
The lairy girls hung out the window of the limousine

And they're all looking quite full on

I want to see you take the jackpot out the fruit machine
And put it all back in
You've got to understand it you can never beat the bandit, no

And she won't be surprised and she won't be shocked
           Dm
When she's pressed the star after she's pressed unlock
            F
And there's verse and chapter sat in her inbox
        Dm
And all that it says is that you've drank a lot

You should bear that in mind tonight (bear that in mind)
                Dm
yeah you should bear that in mind tonight (bear that in mind)

You should bear that in mind tonight (bear that in mind)
yeah you should bear that in mind tonight (bear that in mind)
You can pour your heart out around 3 o clock
When the 2 for 1's undone the writers block.

Love Is A Laserquest

Love Is A Laserquest Guitar Chords & Lyrics
INTRO
B
 
       B                            G#m
Do you still feel younger than you thought you would by now?
   C#m                              F#
Or darling have you started feeling old yet?
      B                                          G#m                     C#m
Don't worry, I'm sure that you're still breaking hearts, with the efficiency
                     F#
that only youth can harness
 
            B                     G#m
And do you still think love is a laserquest?
           C#m                    F#
Or do you take it all more seriously?
                B                   G#m
I've tried to ask you this, in some daydreams that I've had
                  C#m                   F#   F#
But you were always busy, being make believe
 
            E                        F#
And do you look into the mirror, to remind yourself, you're there?
           B                                 E
Or has somebodies goodnight kisses got that covered?
          E                         F#                 E          B
Well I'm not being honest, I'll pretend that you were just some lover
 
    B                     G#m
Now I can't think of air, without thinking of you
  C#m                    F#
I doubt that comes as a surprise
    B                             G#m
And I can't think of anything to dream about
 C#m                     F#     F#
I can't find anywhere to hide
 
    E                           F#
And when I'm hanging on, by the rings around my eyes
         B                     E
And I convince myself I need another
        E                       F#                     E         B
For a minute it gets easier to pretend that you were just some lover.
 
B  G#m  C#m  F#
 
         E                       F#
When I'm pipe and slippers and rocking chair
         B                     E
Singing dreadful songs about summer.
            E                        F#                  E        G#m
Well I've found a better method of pretending you were just some lover
            E                        F#                  E         B

A Certain Romance

A Certain Romance Guitar Chords & Lyrics
VERSE 1
B
Well, oh they might wear classic Reeboks
B
Or knackered Converse
B
Or tracky bottoms tucked in socks
E
But all of that's what the point is not
                                Em
The point's that there ain't no romance around there
B
And there's the truth that they can't see
B
They'd probably like to throw a punch at me
B      E
And if you could only see them, then you would agree
Em
Agree that there ain't no romance around there
 
CHORUS
    G#m             F#m7
You know, oh it's a funny thing you know
      E
We'll tell 'em if you like
      Em
We'll tell 'em all tonight
              B
They'll never listen
              G#m
Because their minds are made up
    C#m                     F#                 B
And course it's all okay to carry on that way
 
VERSE 2
B
'Cause over there there's broken bones
B
There's only music, so that there's new ringtones
E
  And it don't take no Sherlock Holmes
                     Em
To see it's a little different around here
B
Don't get me wrong, oh there's boys in bands
B
And kids who like to scrap with pool cues in their hands
E
And just cause he's had a coupla cans
                          Em
He thinks it's alright to act like a dickhead
 
CHORUS
          G#m             F#m7
Don't you know, oh it's a funny thing you know
      E
We'll tell 'em if you like
      Em
We'll tell 'em all tonight
              B
They'll never listen
              G#m
Because their minds are made up
    C#m                     F#
And course it's all okay to carry on that way
 
           G#m
But I said no
   F#m7
Oh no!
         E               Em
Well you won't get me to go!
B             G#m
Not anywhere, not anywhere
      C#m       F#
No, I won't go
          B
Oh no no!
 
VERSE 3
B
Well, over there there's friends of mine
B
What can I say, I've known 'em for a long long time
E
And yeah, they might overstep the line
                       Em               B
But I just cannot get angry in the same way
B
No, not in the same way
                 E
Said in the same way
             Em
Oh no, oh no no

Am          F           Am             F
Outside the cafe by the cracker factory
         Am           F     C     E
You were practicing a magic trick
       Am           F            Am         F
And my thoughts got rude, as you talked and chewed
       Am           F        C   E
On the last of your pick and mix
 
 
                           Am              F                   Am         F
Said your mistaken if your thinking that I haven't been caught cold before
       Am            F          C    E
As you bit into your strawberry lace
           Am             F              Am         F
And then a flip in your attention in the form of a gobstopper
                Am              F        C    E
Is all you have left and it was going to waste
 
 
CHORUS
 
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
 
 
VERSE
 
                     Am            F
The next time that I caught my own reflection
       Am             F
It was on it's way to meet you
Am          F              C    E
Thinking of excuses to postpone
                    Am                F
You never look like yourself from the side
         Am              F
But your profile did not hide
             Am           F              C      E
The fact you knew I was approaching your throne
 
 
            Am           F                 Am       F
With folded arms you occupy the bench like toothache
                    Am                 F            C   E
Saw them, puff your chest out like you never lost a war
             Am            F             Am            F
And though I try so not to suffer the indignity of a reaction
          Am           F                C    E
There was no cracks to grasp or gaps to claw
 
 
CHORUS

And your past-times, consisted of the strange

And twisted and deranged

And I hate that little game you had called

Crying lightning

But not half as impossible as everyone assumes

When The Sun Goes Down Guitar Chords & Lyrics
VERSE
 
B                       D#7
  So who's that girl there?
Emaj7
  I wonder what went wrong
             D#m
So that she had to roam the streets
      Emaj7
She don't do major credit cards
    D#m
I doubt she does receipts
                     C#m       C#m F# E D#m C#m D#m
It's all not quite legitimate
 
B                  D#7
  And what a scummy man
     Emaj7
Just give him half a chance
             D#m
I bet he'll rob you if he can
   Emaj7
Can see it in his eyes, yeah
         D#m
That he's got a driving ban
                  C#m         C#m F# E D#m C#m D#m
Amongst some other offences
 
 
BRIDGE
 
G#m                      D#m
  And I've seen him with girls of the night
   G#m                     D#m
And he told Roxanne to put on her red light
G#m                        D#m
  They're all infected but he'll be alright
           C#m        D#m            E  F#
Cause he's a scumbag, don't you know
                               Bm
I said he's a scumbag, don't you know!

Want half a chance to show he's more than likely

I've got a feeling in my stomach

And she's delighted when she sees him

Em    Am  G  x4
 
VERSE 1
                     Em                              Am
Arabella's got some interstellar-gator skin boots
      G                          Em                              Am   G
And a helter skelter 'round her little finger and I ride it endlessly
              Em                         Am
She's got a Barbarella silver swimsuit
             G                       Em                             Am     G
And when she needs to shelter from reality she takes a dip in my daydreams
 
PRE CHORUS
Em                         Am               G
     My days end best when this sunset gets itself
Em                      Am           G           Em
     Behind that little lady sitting on the passenger side
               Am              G                Em
It's much less picturesque without her catching the light
N.C.
The horizon tries but it's just not as kind on the eyes

But she's a modern lover
         Em                                Am    G
It's an exploration, she's made of outer space
         Em                              Am
And her lips are like the galaxy's edge
         G                    Em                       Am       G
And her kiss the colour of a constellation falling into place

  That's magic in a cheetah print coat
                            Em
Just a slip underneath it I hope
                            G
Asking if I can have one of those
                            C
Organic cigarettes that she smokes
                                 A
Wraps her lips round the Mexican coke
                                    C
Makes you wish that you were the bottle
                    D           D#
Takes a sip of your soul and it sounds like…

Thats Where You’re Wrong

Thats Where You’re Wrong Guitar Chords & Lyrics
INFO:
They repeat throughout the song, Alex usually mutes the first string (e) while playing,
but you can play it if you like. I added chords for the verses too, just in case you want
to play it acoustically (Alex doesn't play chords in the verses in the album version).
 
If you want to play it acoustically: for the verses you can either strum the chord just
once and let it ring OR you can strum very lightly (double time of 4/4) and in slower
tempo with your thumb and index, sounds better. And as for the chorus, the strumming is
double time of 4/4, just a little bit stronger, just feel the song you will figure the
rest out.
 
 
VERSE
E
Pussyfooting, setting sun
A
Make a wish that weighs a tonne
     E
There are no handles for you to hold
      A
And no understanding where it goes
 
E     A
 
E
Jealousy in technicolour
A
Fear by name, love by numbers
    E
Street lamp amber, wanderlust
A
Powder in a blunderbuss
 
CHORUS
E
She looks as if she's blowing a kiss at me
And suddenly the sky is a scissor
A
Sitting on the floor with a tambourine
Crushing up a bundle of love
E
Don't take it so personally
You're not the only one
A
That time has got it in for, honey
That's where you're wrong
 
E    A
 
VERSE
E
All the old flames fastened on

Or you could just play F#m   Bm   G#m* x2
 
 
F#m                  D            F#m
Trudging through the morning, the tramp with the trampoline
F#m       D    F#m
under his arm, shifts past your whiskers so
Bm           F#m           Bm          F#m
stark is the charm but the barking alarm waits
F#m             D         F#m
coiled till the corner is turned
 
        F#m     D          F#m
And the bicycle wheels all struggle to move round
   F#m        D    F#m
in your muddy mind blatantly caked and
  Bm         F#m     Bm          F#m
unwilling to wind uncooperative time so he
F#m         D                F#m
sits on the springs till the muck goes dry

F#m                  Bm                  G#m*               x2
cast the shadow of a snake pit on the wall
 
 
F#m       D         F#m
What came first the chicken or the dickhead?
F#m         D       F#m
Split sleep reaps rewards from ill fitting
      Bm              F#m        Bm         F#m
thoughts and twilight forced you to go on a walk,
     F#m        D                F#m
your legs start running and your leg gets caught
 
F#m     D    F#m
Canopy 19 is perfectly placed for the
F#m        D           F#m
reasonably frightening fall from the aftertaste
       Bm            F#m        Bm       F#m
You'll have to slip away, I'm unhappy to say,

behold as the crook in the hammock plays

Behold as a crook in the hammock plays cruelly with the base of the scales
    Bm
And fiddles with the feet on a balancing act
F#m
Gagged, bound and crafting a tale
Bm                    N.C.
Trailing wrapped in a gasp
F#m
Cruelly with the base and the scales
            Bm
And fucking fiddles with the feet on a balancing act
        F#m
She was gagged, bound and crafting a tale
F#m      D            F#m   G#m*
Trailing wrapped in a gasp

F    A7    Dm    F    Bb    Gm    F
 
VERSE 1
      F                  A7                   Dm
In a foreign place, the saving grace was the feeling
     Cm                               Bb
And that it was a heart that he was stealing
            Gm                       F
Oh, he was ready to impress and the fierce excitement
     A7                         Dm
The eyes are bright he couldn't wait to get away
  Cm                            Bb
I bet the Juliet was just the icing on the cake
Am               Gm
Make no mistake, no
 
CHORUS
Bb                               Bbm                        Am

Well, I'm sure you could have made it that bit better on your own
 
VERSE 2
       F              A7                        Dm
And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch
       Cm                           Bb
Well, all the little promises they don't mean much
              Gm
When there's memories to be made
       F                   A7                 Dm
And I hope you're holding hands by New Year's Eve
      Cm                         Bb
They made it far too easy to believe
            Am                           Gm
That true romance can't be achieved these days
 
CHORUS
Bb                               Bbm                        Am

A                       F#m       F                          A
 And he's equipped to enthral her and her friends think he's fit
                              F#m F                   A
And you just can't measure up no, you don't have a prayer

Wishing that you'd made the most of her when she was there

They've got engaged, there's no intention of a wedding

He's pinched your bird and he'd probably kick your head in

  Now you don't know what she's up to  you can only assume
A                                      F#m  F
If she's not in the front of the shops then they've gone to his room
A                                F#m        F
 Bet she's gone 'round in her school stuff, bet that's what he likes
A                               F#m       F
 I know you thought she were different and you thought she were nice

But she's not nice, she's pretty fucking far from nice

She's looking at you funny, rarely looking at you twice

 Have you heard what she's been doing?   Never did it for me
                           F#m     F
He picks her up at the school gate at twenty past three
A                               F#m  F               A
She's been with all of the boys but never went very far

And she wagged English and Science just to go in his car

Oh, now the girls have grown

Now look at the mess you made me make
F7                             Cm7
Hitchhiking with a monogrammed suitcase

Miles away from any half-useful imaginary highway

  Rocket-ship grease down the cracks of my knuckles

Karate bandana, warp speed chic

Hair down to there, impressive moustache

           Cm7                  F7
And then I    haunt you via the rear view mirror
     Bbmaj7     B7
On a long drive from the back seat
 
    Cm7            F7
But it's alright, 'cause you love me
Cm7                               F7
And you recognise that it's ain't how it should be
     Cm7                              F7
Your eyes are heavy and the weather's getting ugly
   Bbmaj7       Bb7
So pull over, I know the place
 
          Cm7                     F7
Don't you know an apparition is a cheap date?
     Cm7                                F7
What exactly is it you've been drinking these days?
Cm7                    F7
Jukebox in the corner, long, hot summer
        Cm7                           F7
They've got a film up on the wall and it's dark enough to dance
Cm7
What do you mean you've never seen Blade Runner?

PRE CHORUS 2

Oh, maybe I was a little too wild in the '70s
Bbmaj7                      Bb7
  Back down to earth with a lounge singer shimmer
Cm7                 F7                  Cm7
Elevator down to my make believe residency
         F7
From the honeymoon suite
Cm7                   F7
Two shows a day, four nights a week
Bbmaj7        Bb7
  Easy money

Evil Twin

Evil Twin Guitar Chords & Lyrics
intro
F#    A E
 
       F#              A E
You've never met before
But still she greets you like a long lost rock and roll
She's definitely one of those
But you'll go wherever she goes
 
            F#             A E
Oh when my body and my mind
Both start talking at the exact same time
Try'na think of ways to make her mine
But they're difficult to find
 
         D         A B
It's not what I need
No, your love's not what I need
So don't give it to me
 
               D                          A     B
And she said: "Oh, well I know this will sound cold
But I really have to go
Oh it's not that I'm not free
There's nowhere I need to be
It's just your love's not what I need
So don't give it to me"
 
F# A  E
 
           D        A B
It's not what I need
No, your love's not what I need
So don't give it to me
 
          C#m                B
She said: Baby, how can I believe you?
C#m                            B
How can I believe you when you can't believe your luck?
C#m                      A                      B
No point sticking to the plan when it's going slow
 
            F#                  A E
It's more a hunger than a thirst
She'll break your heart the second time
Before you know about the first
Looks well-equipped to leave you in the lurch
But you'll let her do your worst
 
And it's not hard to tell
It's obvious the other angels faces fell
When she told them that she had to go
Swap her wings and overcoat for something colorful
 
           D        A B
It's not what I need
No, your love's not what I need
So don't give it to me
 
same chords goes on!
 
(No, your love's not what I need)
So don't give it to me
 
(No, your love's not what I need)
So don't give it to me
 
(No, your love's not what I need)
So don't give it to me
 
Your love's not what I need

Dance Little Liar

Dance Little Liar Guitar Chords & Lyrics
VERSE 1
 
C#m                  F#m
I heard the truth was built to bend
    C#m     F#m           C#m
A mechanism to suspend the guilt 
        F#m                C#m
Is what you are requiring still
              F#m
You've got, to dance little liar
 
 C#m                     F#m
Just like those fibbs to pop and fizz
                C#m               F#m
And you'll be forced to take that awful quiz
  C#m
And you're bound to trip
       F#m                   C#m
And she'll detect the fiction on
               F#m
Your lips and dig a contradicion up
 
 
CHORUS
 
 A             F#m         C#m
And the clean coming will hurt
                          E      F#m
And you can never get it spotless
              E              G#
When theres dirt beneath the dirt
                          C#m
The liar takes alot less time
 
 
VERSE 2
 
    C#m                F#m
Im sure its clear and plain to me
    C#m       F#m              C#m
Its not an alibi you need just yet#
             F#m                        C#m
Oh no its something for those beads of sweat
         F#m
Yes that will get you back to normal
 
C#m                    F#m                      C#m
    And after you have dabbed the patch you’ll grieve
           F#m                   C#m
And then proceed to scratch the varnish off 
   F#m
That newly added calmness
 C#m          F#m
So as not to raise any alarms too soon
 
 
CHORUS
 
 A             F#m         C#m
And the clean coming will hurt
                          E      F#m
And you can never get it spotless
              E              G#
When theres dirt beneath the dirt
                          C#m
The liar takes alot less time
 
 
BRIDGE
(faster strumming here)
 
F#m                    C#m
Time to decide on his saunter
              F#m
Have you got itchy bones? 
        C#m
And in all your time alone
         F#m                  C#m ( or C# )
Can you hack your mind being riddled
          E          G#
with the wrong memories?

From the bottom of your heart, the relegation zone
Em                         C  Am
I saw this coming from the start
Em                   C   Am
The shake rattle and roll
 
Em             C        Am   Em
The cracks in blackout blinds cast patterns on the ceiling

But you're feeling fine

There's no need to show me round baby

Em                                 C                    Am
I've been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go

Will you pour me one for the road?

You used to get it in your fishnets

Now you only get it in your night dress
                                    F#m
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
                        B
Landed in a very common crisis
                            E
Everything's in order in a black hole
                               C#m
Nothing seems as pretty as the past though
                                F#m

Now when she's told she's gonna get it
                                     B
I'm guessing that she'd rather just forget it
                             E
Clinging to not getting sentimental
                              C#m
Said she wasn't going but she went still
                               F#m
Likes her gentlemen not to be gentle

And I can't be arsed to carry on in this debate that reoccurs

Riot Van

Riot Van Guitar Chords & Lyrics
              Dmaj7 C#m7
Up rolled the riot van
   Bm7                              Dmaj7 C#m7
And sparked excitement in the boys
   Bm7                          Dmaj7 C#m7
But the policemen look annoyed
   Bm7                                    Dmaj7 C#m7 Bm7
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid
 
A                          C#m7                        Bm7          E  E6  E
They got a chase last night from men with truncheons dressed in hats
A                             C#m7                              Bm7
They didn't do that much wrong, still ran away though for the laugh
                   E  E6  E
just for the laugh
 
            Dmaj7   C#m7
Please just stop talking
                    Bm7              Dmaj7 C#m7
Because they won't find us if you do
           Bm7               Dmaj7 C#m7
Oh, those silly boys in blue
            Bm7                     Dmaj7 C#m7 Bm7
Well, they won't catch me and you
 
A                          C#m7                     Bm7      E  E6  E
Have you been drinking son, you don’t look old enough to me
A                      C#m7                          Bm7
I’m sorry officer, is there a certain age you’re supposed to be?
       E  E6  E
nobody told me
 
              Dmaj7 C#m7
Up rolled the riot van
            Bm7                         Dmaj7 C#m7
And these lads just wind the coppers up
     Bm7                                Dmaj7 C#m7
Ask why they don't catch proper crooks
       Bm7                              Dmaj7 C#m7
Get their address and their names took
          Dmaj7
But they couldn't care less

Thrown in the riot van
    Bm7                            Dmaj7 C#m7
And all the coppers kicked him in
     Bm7                           Dmaj7 C#m7
And there was no way he could win
      Bm7                        Dmaj7 C#m7 Bm7
Just had to take it on the chin

VERSE
 
Em                           C       Am
  Have you got color in your cheeks?
Am                                       Em
Do you ever get that fear that you can't shift
 
The type that sticks around like something in your teeth?
               C           Am
Are there some aces up your sleeve?
                                Em
Have you no idea that you're in deep?
 
I dreamt about you nearly every night this week
         C              Am
How many secrets can you keep?
                                      Em
'Cause there's this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow and I play it on repeat
C       Am
 Until I fall asleep
                      B
Spilling drinks on my settee
 
 
BRIDGE
 
      C
(Do I wanna know)
        Am
If this feeling flows both ways?
        Em
(Sad to see you go)
 
Was sort of hoping that you'd stay
      C
(Baby we both know)
         Am                                 Em
That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can't say tomorrow day
 
 
CHORUS
 
                 Em
Crawling back to you
                C      Am
Ever thought of calling when you've had a few?
                Em
'Cause I always do
                         C       Am
Maybe I'm too busy being yours to fall for somebody new
                    Em
Now I've thought it through
                 Em
Crawling back to you
 
 
VERSE

So have you got the guts?
                                     Em
Been wondering if your heart's still open and if so I wanna know what time it shuts
C               Am
 Simmer down and pucker up
                             Em                                           C        Am
I'm sorry to interrupt. It's just I'm constantly on the cusp of trying to kiss you
                             Em
I don't know if you feel the same as I do
                  C   Am             B
But we could be together if you wanted to

The knife twists at the thought that I should fall short of the mark

Frightened by the bite no it's no harsher than the bark
