      G                  C
I was watching, with one eye on the other side,
      D                                        G
I had fifteen people telling me to move, I got movin’ on my mind.
        G                C
I found shelter, in some thoughts turning wheels around,
          D                               G
I've said 39 times that I love you to the beauty I have found.

Well it's, one, two, three, four, take the elevator,
       C                                           D
at the Hotel Yorba I'll be glad to see you later,

          G                     C
I've been thinking, of a little place down by the lake
              D
They've got a dirty old road leading up to the house
        G
I wonder how long it will take
           G
till we're alone,
             C
sitting on a front porch of that home
 
D
Stompin our feet, on the wooden boards,
G
Never gotta worry about locking the door
 
 
          G
Well its, one, two, three, four, take the elevator,
       C
at the Hotel Yorba I'll be glad to see you later,

It might sound silly, for me to think childish thoughts like these

But I'm so tired of acting tough, and I'm gonna do what I please.

          G                     C
Let's get married in a big cathedral by a priest
           D
because if I'm the man that you love the most,
          G
You could say I do at least.
 
 
CHORUS
 
          G
Well its, one, two, three, four, take the elevator,

at the hotel Yorba I'll be glad to see you later,
D                             G
all they got inside is vacancy
         G
And it's four, five six, seven, grab the umbrella,
    C
And grab hold of me cause I’m your favourite fella,

A Martyr For My Love For You

A Martyr For My Love For You Guitar Chords & Lyrics
INTRO
Am Em
 
VERSE 1
        Am          Em
She was sixteen and six feet tall
      Dm                       C                Am
In a crowd of teenagers coming out of the zoo
                         Em
She stumbled started to slip and fall
        Dm                             C           Am
Teeter-tottered on the top of patent leather shoes
               Em
I happened to catch her and said
        Dm                  C                       Am     Em Am
"Maybe these ruby shoes are a little cumbersome for you"

But not as shaky as I must have seemed
         Dm                             C             Am
Talking junk through her giggle, little teenage dream
                          Em
And on the phone I could not compete
         Dm                       C           Am
My dumb-luck fake competence was getting weak

For a sec' I thought I sounded sweet
             Dm              C
But sure enough in a gruff, faint voice
              Am      Am Em
I heard myself speak
 
 
CHORUS

D                A
And I can tell a joke
 C                         G
But one of these days I'm bound to choke
D                   A
And we could share a kiss
    C                      G
But I feel like I can't go through with this
D                    A
And I bet we could build a home
          C                    G
But I know the right thing for me to do

                  G
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
F
Your back is straight, your hair is smooth
      E7
On the pillow where you lie
 Am
But I don't sense affection
  G
No gratitude, no love
 F
Your loyalty is not to me
   E7
But to the stars above
 
 
CHORUS
F                                   E7
One more cup of coffee for the road
F                                   E7
One more cup of coffee before I go
                    Am
To the valley below

VERSE 2
Am
Your daddy, he's an outlaw
     G
And a wanderer by trade
F
He'll teach you how to pick and choose
   E7
And how to throw the blade
Am
He oversees his kingdom
     G
So no stranger does intrude
F
His voice it trembles as he calls out
   E7
For another plate of food
 
 
CHORUS
F                                   E7

One more cup of coffee before I go

VERSE 3
Am
Your sister sees the future
         G
Like your Mother and yourself
F
You don't know how to read or write
          E7
There's no books upon your shelf
Am
But your pleasure knows no limits
        G
And your voice is like a meadowlark
F
Your heart is like the ocean
E7
Mysterious and dark
 
 
CHORUS
F                                   E7
One more cup of coffee for the road

Little Ghost

Little Ghost Guitar Chords & Lyrics
G     G
      Little ghost, little ghost
        C             G
One I'm scared of the most
                                    D
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
       G
I'm the only one that sees you,
      C                G
And I can't do much to please you
                         D              G
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above
   G
The first moment that I met her
      C            G
I did not expect a specter
                                       D
When I shook her hand I really shook a glove
            G
She looked into me so sweetly
       C                G
And we left the room discreetly
                           D             G
No one else could know the secret of our love
   G
Little ghost, little ghost
        C             G
One I'm scared of the most
                                    D
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
       G
I'm the only one that sees you,
      C                G
And I can't do much to please you
                         D              G
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above
 
   G
Every morning I awoke
      C             G
And I see my little ghost
                                          D
Wond'rin' if it's really her that's lying there
          G
I lean to touch her and I whisper
        C               G
But not brave enough to kiss her
                      D              G
When I held her I was really holding air
 
   G
Little ghost, little ghost
        C             G
One I'm scared of the most
                                    D
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
       G
I'm the only one that sees you,

And I can't do much to please you
                         D              G
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above
 
  G
Though I try my best to keep it
      C             G
There really was no secret
           G (slowly strum up and down)      D
Must have looked like I was dancing with the wall
(no strumming)  G (              ) C ( ) G (   )
        No one else could see this apparition
(no strumming) C (         ) G (    )
        But because of my condition
(no strumming)    G                  D                  G...
        I fell in love with a little ghost and that was all
...G
Little ghost, little ghost
        C             G
One I'm scared of the most
                                    D
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
        G
I'm the only one that sees you,

And I can't do much to please you

In some respects
 E                      D            A
I suspect you've got a respectable side
    A                      E
When pushed and pulled and pressured
      D             E
You seldom run and hide
            A                  E
But it's for someone elses benefit 
         G      D       A
Not for what you wanna do
                           E
Until I realize that you've realized
         D                  A
I'm gonna say these words to you

You don't know what love is

Just as a child of ten might act

But you're far too old
           A           E
You're not hopeless or helpless
      C       G       A
And I hate to sound cold

I can see your man
Cant help but win
Any problems that may arise
But in his mind there can be no sin
If you never criticize
You just keep on repeating
All those empty "I love you's"
Until you say you deserve better
I'm gonna lay right into you
 
 
CHORUS
 Same as previous chorus
 
You don't know what love is
You just do as you're told
Just as a child of ten might act
But you're far too old
Your not hopeless or helpless
And I hate to sound cold
But you don't know what love is
No you don't know what love is
No you don't know what love is

VERSE 1
 
A5                        C5
  We started living in an old house
A5                            C5
 My ma gave birth and we were checking it out
         A5
It was a baby boy
             C5
So we bought him a toy
         B5
It was a ray gun
           D5
And it was 1981
 
             A5
We named him "Baby"
         C5
He had a toothache
           A5
He started crying
                   C5
It sounded like an earthquake
          A5
It didn't last long
          C5
Because I stopped it
            B5
I grabbed a rag doll
                  Bb5
Stuck some little pins in it
 
            A5
Now we're a family
            C5
And we're alright now
       A5
We got money and a little place
   C5
To fight now
         A5
We don't know you
             C5
And we don't owe you
           B5
But if you see us around
      Bb5
I got something else to show you

Now it's easy when you don't know better
               A5
You think it's sleazy?
                 C5
Then put it in a short letter
        A5
We keep warm
                           C5
But there's just something wrong with ya
     B5                                  Bb5
Just feel that you're the hardest little button to button
 
       A5                  C5
I had opinions that didn't matter
        A5                   C5
I had a brain that felt like pancake batter
        A5                    C5
I got a backyard with nothing in it
         B5
Except a stick, a dog
      Bb5
And a box with something in it

VERSE
   Am                    G
My baby's got a heart of stone
          C           D          Am
can't you people just leave her alone
    Am                   G         C
she never did nothing to hurt you
        D         Am
so just leave her alone
 
 
    Am                 G
The motion of her tiny hands
        C             D       Am
and the quiver of her bones below
        Am               G
are the signs of a girl alone
             C              D       C
and tell you everything you need to know
 
 
CHORUS
  C
I can't explain it
  D
I feel it often
                    Am
everytime I see her face
        C
but the way you treat her
D
fills me with rage and I
                       E
want to tear apart the place
 
 
BREAK
Am    G

VERSE
    Am                      G
You try to tell her what to do
    C               D        Am
and all she does is stare at you
    Am                        G
her stare is louder than your voice
        C             D      C
because truth doesn't make a noise
 
 
   C                   D
No truth doesnt make a noise
                    E
Truth dosent make a noise

That I do all the little things that you do

Except the same little things that you do are annoying

The Denial Twist

The Denial Twist Guitar Chords & Lyrics
         C                   D#
If you THINK that a kiss is ALL in the lips
       A#                  C
C'mon,    you got it all WRONG man
             C                       D#
And if you THINK that our dance was ALL in the hips,
    A#                C (Let ring)
Oh WELL, then do the twist
         C                     D#
If you THINK holding hands is ALL in the fingers,
      A#                          C C A# C
Grab HOLD of the soul where the MEMORY lingers, and
                   D#
Make sure to never DO it with a singer
             A#                   C C A#
Cause he'll TELL everyone in the WORLD
           D# D# D# A# A# C C A#
But he was thinking about the girl
               D# D# D# A# A# C  CC A#     C
Yeah, but he's thinking about the girl, oh

A lot of people get CONFUSED and they bruise
      A#                   C C A#   C
Real EASY when it comes to LOVE
                             D#
They start putting on their SHOES and walking out
              A#                     C C A#   C
And singing "BOY, I think I had ENOUGH"
                  D#
Just because she MAKES a big rumpus
           A#                 C   C   A#              C
She don't MEAN to be mean or hurt you on purpose, boy
                     D#
Take a tip and do YOURSELF a little service
          A#                      C C A#
Take a MOUNTAIN turn it into a mole
          D#        A#      C
Just by PLAYIN a DIFFERENT ROLE

And wants to BE the one who's in control
           C                            D#
But the FEELING that you're under can REALLY make you wonder
         A#                 C (Let Ring)
How the HELL she can be so COLD
C                     D#
So now you're left, DENYING the truth
           A#                          C       C        C
And it's HIDDEN in the wisdom in the back of your tooth
                                 D#
Ya need ta, spit it out, in a TELEPHONE booth
          A#                     C C A#
While ya CALL everyone that you know, and ask 'em

Where do ya think she goes?

That it's CAUSING when she rocks the boat

Well it's the CAUSE hittin on the CARDINAL Laws

'bout the PROPER place to hang her coat

And the SOUL plays the role of a lost little kitten but

Fell in love with a girl 
A D                       E               B
I fell in love once and almost completely

A       D
But sometimes these feelings
E

I said I must be fine cause my heart's still beating
F#                      A
Come and kiss me by the riverside, yeah

Red hair with a curl

Mellow roll for the flavor and the eyes for peeping
B                             A
Can't keep away from the girl 
D                                   E

My left brain knows that all love is fleeting 
F#                     A
She's just looking for something new, yeah
