How To Play

Intro: B7, Bb7sus, Bb, D#

-----Verse 1 lyrics Cm (a beat before "from")-->
 
                    G#               D#
From the moment the lights went off,
               Bb       Cm
Everything had changed.
                G#
Lie awake in an empty room,
      D#                    Bb    Cm
In my head it all feels the same.
                      G#
Like the taste of the day you left,
         D#            Bb      Cm
It still lingers on my breath.
                    G#
And the dampness of tears that left,
     D#                  Bb    Cm
That stain where you had wept.
                   G#
All alone with the negligee,
           D#              Bb   Cm
That still hangs off of my bed.
                  G#
I keep meaning to give it away,
      D#                    Bb
But I just leave it there instead.
 
Chorus: Cm, Cm/Bb, G#, D#, B7,
Bb, D#
Note: This is very subtle, but DO NOT play Bb after that Cm.  Only the bass note moves,
the chord is still on Cm.  If you play Bb, it will sound very wrong.
 
-----Chorus 1 lyrics Cm (a beat before "no")-->
 
           Cm/Bb         G#
No need to cry about it,
          D#
I can not live without it,
B7           Bb7sus  Bb           D#    Cm
Every time I wind up back at your door.
           Cm/Bb          G#
Why do you do this to me?
        D#
You penetrate right through me.
B7           Bb7sus  Bb           D#
Every time I wind up back at your door.
 
Verse 2 has the same rhythm and same chords as Verse 1.
 
-----Verse 2 lyrics-->
 
3 more days ‘til I see your face,
I’m afraid it’s far too much.
Cook a meal and fix up the place,
Dial your number, hang it up.
 
If I took you for granted,
I apologize for acting tough.
You’re my reason for living,
And there’s no way I’m giving up, oh.
 
Chorus 2 has the same rhythm and same chords as Chorus 1.
 
No need to cry about it,
I can not live without it,
Every time I wind up back at your door.
 
Why do you do this to me?
You penetrate right through me.
Every time I wind up back at your door.
 
Bridge: Gm7, Fm7, G#, D#, G#, Bb
 
-----Bridge lyrics-->
 
    Gm7   Fm7          G#     D#
Now every evening is a bitter fight,
        Gm7        Fm7        G#     D#
And I’m eating all alone on a Friday night.
      Gm7            Fm7
And I know what your friends say,
           G#                    D#
“He’s just wasting your love and time.”
G# (crescendo)                   Bb    (back to Cm)
I will never let you change your mind.
 
Chorus 3: Cm, Cm/Bb, G#, D#, (G#,
Bb, D#) or (B7, Bb7sus, Bb, D#)
Note: Another subtlety.  The last line switches between some slight chord variations.
a look.
 
-----Chorus 3 lyrics Cm (a beat before "no")-->
 
           Cm/Bb         G#
No need to cry about it,
          D#
I can not live without it,
G#           D#      Bb           D#    Cm
Every time I wind up back at your door.
           Cm/Bb          G#
Why do you do this to me?
        D#
You penetrate right through me.
B7           Bb7sus  Bb           D#    Cm
Every time I wind up back at your door.
           Cm/Bb         G#
No need to cry about it,
           D#
I may just die without it,
G#           D#      Bb           D#    Cm
Every time I wind up back at your door.
           Cm/Bb          G#
Why do you do this to me?
        D#
You penetrate right through me.

Every time I wind up back at your door.
 
B7           Bb7sus  Bb           D#
Every time I wind up back at your door.

Every time I wind up back at your door.
