 Once bitten and twice shy

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart

The Edge Of Heaven

The Edge Of Heaven Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Am
I would lock you up
Am
But I could not bear to hear you
G                    D
Screaming to be set free
Am
I would chain you up
Am
If I'd thought you'd swear
G                               D
The only one that mattered was me, me, me
Am
I would strap you up
Am
But don't worry baby
G                              D
You know I wouldn't hurt you 'less you wanted me to
Am
It's too late to stop
Am
Won't the heavens save me?
G                                D
My daddy said the devil looks a lot like you
 
F                   G
You take me to the edge of heaven
F                 G
Tell me that my soul's forgiven
F                 G
Hide you baby's eyes and we can...

When the passion dies
F                                    E
It's just a matter of time before my heart is looking for a home
 
 
Am
I'm like a maniac
Am
At the end of the day
G                                  D
I'm like a doggie barking at your door
Am
So come take me back 
Am
To the place you stay
G                           D
And maybe we can do it once more
Am
You say I'm dangerous
Am
But don't worry baby
G                                D
I get excited at the things that you do
Am
And there's a place for us 
Am
In a dirty movie

When the passion dies
F                                    E
It's just a matter of time before my heart is looking for a home
 
Am Am G D
I ain't got no more worries
I'm gonna spend some times with you
Loving you takes such courage
And don't you think that I know it
 
F                 G
You take me to the edge of heaven

The boys from wham! will help you reach that goal.
A
It's gonna break your mama's heart, (so sad)
C                     D
It's gonna break your daddy's heart, (too bad)
A
But you'll throw the dice and take my advice,
C                          D
Because I know that you're smart.
A
Can you dig this thing? Yeah!
C                       D
Are you gonna get down? Yeah!

We'll share a rusty can of corn...

    Cmaj7            Fmaj7                  Cmaj7  Fmaj7
And hope the morning sun won't wake you too soon
    Cmaj7             Fmaj7
For when you wake and look at me
    Cmaj7           Fmaj7
You never know, you just might see
  Cmaj7         Fmaj7           Cmaj7  Fmaj7
Another boy who crept into your room
 
[Pre-chorus]
Cmaj7          Fmaj7
Take your time, that's what you told me
Cmaj7          Fmaj7
Take your time
      Cmaj7                 Fmaj7                   Cmaj7
But I fell head first and I just don't know what to do
 
[Chorus]
Fmaj7                     Em7 Cmaj7
Nothing looks the same in the light
       Fmaj7/A
Only a fool like me would take to heart
      Am7               Cmaj7 Dm7 Em7 Fmaj7
The things you said you meant last night
Fmaj7                     Em7 Cmaj7
Nothing looks the same in the light
             Fmaj7/A            Am7   Cmaj7
I'll keep my feet firm on the ground
Fmaj7                     Em7 Cmaj7
Nothing looks the same in the light
          Fmaj7/A
There's a danger in a stranger
       Am7                  Cmaj7 Dm7 Em7
With a warm hand and then a kiss so right
Fmaj7                     Em7 Cmaj7
Nothing looks the same in the light
            Fmaj7/A            Cmaj7
It's been a pleasure, see you around

[Verse 2]
  Cmaj7         Fmaj7
I watch the sun upon the sheets
  Cmaj7          Fmaj7
I hear a car out on the street
    Cmaj7           Fmaj7                Cmaj7  Fmaj7
And gently pull you close, it's over too soon
     Cmaj7        Fmaj7
What can I do but wait and see
     Cmaj7             Fmaj7
Hold on to you, please stay with me
      Cmaj7          Fmaj7      Cmaj7  Fmaj7
Where am I now, your love, or a fool
 
[Pre-chorus]
Cmaj7          Fmaj7
Please be kind
Cmaj7                  Fmaj7
Don't change your mind
        Cmaj7                  Fmaj7                  Cmaj7
Because you're the first and I want to stay here with you

Everything She Wants Acoustic Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Capo: 2nd fret

Intro: F#7sus4, F#, Bm7, E
 
F#7sus4 F#
Somebody told me
     Bm7                    E
Girl everything she wants is everything she sees
F#7sus4            F#
I guess I must have loved you
          Bm7                      E
Because I said you were the perfect girl for me, baby
 
F#7sus4                 F#
And now we're six months older
    Bm7                     E
And everything you want and everything you see
F#7sus4            F#
Is out of reach not good enough
  Bm7                         E
I don't know what the hell you want from me
 
F#7sus4                 F#
(Everything she wants), everything she needs
Bm7                  E
It's just a matter of time
F#7sus4                 F#
(Everything she wants), everything she needs

  Somebody tell me
                  Bm
(Want to tell me)
       C#m7            F#m
Why I work so hard for you
 
(to give you money), oh to give you money
 
Strum: F#7sus4, F#, Bm7, E
 
Some people work for a living
Some people work for fun
Girl I just work for you
They told me marriage was give and take
Well you've shown me you can take
You've got some giving to do
And now you tell me that your having my baby
I'll tell you that I'm happy if you want me to
But one step further and my back will break
If my best isn't good enough
Then how can it be good enough for two
 
F#7sus4                 F#
(Everything she wants), everything she needs
Bm7                  E
It's just a matter of time

   Oh, baby... everything that she wants..
                        C#m7
and everything that she needs
Bm
 How could you settle
      C#m7
For a boy like me
     F#m
When all I could see
       B  
Was the end of the week
        D
All the things we sign
        D
And the things we buy
            Bm
Ain't gonna keep us together
C#m7                       F#m
Girl, it's just a matter of time
 
 
My situation
      C#m7
Never changes
                           F#m
Walking in and out of that door
 
Like a stranger
        C#m7
For the wages
 
I give you all
                 Bm  C#m7
You say you want more
 
     F#m
And all I could see
        B
Was the end of the week

All the things we sign
        D
And the things we buy
            Bm
Ain't gonna keep us together

Girl, it's just a matter of time

Heartbeat

Heartbeat Guitar Chords & Lyrics
C							G
Another summer
Another vacation is over...

F						G				C
A September morning,
With the sun and the smell of the clover...
C									G
Down by the gates
We sit and we watch all our friends go by...

F						G				C
And pretend we don't hear the bell,
That rings through the summer sky.
 
F				G
I was happy with the kisses she gave me,

E7					Am
It's just that happy was all she made me...

F						G
Happy that was...
Until I saw you...
CHORUS

C								Am
Heartbeat, heartbeat,
Why do you fail me now?

F			G				C
You hurt me...desert me,
In my darkest hour...

C								Am
Heartbeat, heartbeat,
Why do you keep me here?

 
F				G
How could I help but admire her beauty?

F				G
Standing on the line between desire and duty...

F				G		C
Heartbeat Heartbeat...
It will end in tears...
 
C								G
I need a lover,
But loves such a dangerous place to be...

F						G				C
Oh, if we were meant for each other,
Then why don't you answer me?
C									G
Don't keep me waiting,
You know that I long to be by your side...

F				G		C
We could even be together,
Tonight...
 
F				G
I was happy with the kisses she gave me...

E7					Am
Now there's nothing on Earth that can save me...

F						G
Why should I care?
I can't have you....
 
CHORUS

C								Am
Heartbeat, heartbeat,
Why do you fail me now?

F			G				C
You hurt me...desert me,
In my darkest hour...

C								Am
Heartbeat, heartbeat,
Why do you keep me here?

 
F				G
How could I help but admire her beauty?

F				G
Standing on the line between desire and duty...

F				G		C
Heartbeat Heartbeat...
It will end in tears...
