Am               C      Fmaj7     Em    Riff 1
 While there's still a fighting chance
B7        Ebdim7         Em  Riff 2
Can't you just get up and go
Am        C    Fmaj7        Em     Riff 1
 And get away from this hollow romance
B7           Ebdim7    Em
It's slowly binding us both
 
(Em)         Am               C     Fmaj7    Em     Riff 1
 Because you tell me what you want and I'll avoid it
B7             Ebdim7           Em        Riff 2
Tell it to the sick and to the damned
Am               C     Fmaj7            Em  Riff 1
Show me what you love, watch me destroy it
              B7    Ebdim7         Em
For your love just crumbles in my hands
 
B7
            C
But if you stay for a while
                                G (Hammer down A-string)
I'll try to think of something kind to say
                 C
And maybe if we pray for a while
                B7
St. Jude might hear my pleas
                  B7
And see me on my knees
                         C
Because she knows how I adore you
              B7
We won't be fighting again tonight
                    C
Not if she knows I adore you
                  Em
Fighting in the streets
 
Riff 2
 
Am            C    Fmaj7      Em  Riff 1
 I laugh and fall just like Grimaldi
  B7                    Ebdim7    Em
You wear your make-up like Baby Jane
Am                     C     Fmaj7      Em Riff 1
All of those promising lies that you told me
B7           Ebdim7       Em      Riff 2
Come on and tell me them again
 
Am               C      Fmaj7    Em  Riff 1
I walked these streets all of my life
B7           Ebdim7        Em      Riff 2
The fear and hope at every turn
Am            C           Fmaj7      Em     Riff 1
She took him, two stepped me and made him a wife
B7                 Ebdim7                Em
Oh I know, and you know they'll crash an burn
 
(Em)            Am                C        Fmaj7       Em  Riff 1
Because she'll tell him what she wants and he'll avoid it
B7                    Ebdim7                 Em  Riff
May as well tell it to the sick and to the damned
Am                 C     Fmaj7            Em  Riff 1
Show him what you love, watch him destroy it
          B7           Ebdim7          Em
For your love seems to crumble in his hands
 
(Em)         Am               C     Fmaj7    Em     Riff 1
 Because you tell me what you want and I'll avoid it
B7             Ebdim7           Em        Riff 2
Tell it to the sick and to the damned
Am               C     Fmaj7            Em  Riff 1
Show me what you love, watch me destroy it
              B7    Ebdim7         Em
For your love just crumbles in my hands
