E            Am                Dm          Gm 
Well it rains and it pours when you're out on your own  
     Em           A         D             G 
If I crash on the couch can I sleep in my clothes?  
            E               Am          Dm          Gm 
'Cause I've spent the night dancing I'm drunk, I suppose  
       Em            A            D           G 
If it looks like I'm laughing I'm really just asking to leave.  
E           Am        Dm           Gm 
This alone, you're in time for the show  
           Em         A             D            G 
You're the one that I need, I'm the one that you loathe  
        E            Am         Dm         Gm 
You can watch me corrode like a beast in repose  
         Em           A       D            G 
'Cause I love all the poison away with the boys in the band.  
 

Dm          G         F#m           Bm 
I've really been on a bender and it shows,  
   Dm            G         F#m             B 
so why don't you blow me a kiss before she goes?  
 

                 F#m 
Give me a shot to remember  
                         A              E 
and you can take all the pain away from me  
                  F#m 
A kiss and I will surrender  
                           G#           A 
the sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead  
                        F#m 
A light to burn all the empires  
                       A                 E 
so bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be  
                          F#m 
In love with all of these vampires  
                          G#             A  Am 
so you can leave like the sane abandoned me  
 

          E            Am             Dm      Gm 
There's a place in the dark where the animals go  
        Em            A           D        G 
you can take off your skin in the cannibal glow  
    E            Am           Dm          Gm 
Juliet loves the beat and the lust it commands  
         Em         A          D             G 
Drop the dagger and lather the blood on your hands, romeo  
 

Dm          G         F#m           Bm 
I've really been on a bender and it shows,  
   Dm            G         F#m             B 
so why don't you blow me a kiss before she goes?  
 

                 F#m 
Give me a shot to remember  
                         A              E 
and you can take all the pain away from me  
                  F#m 
A kiss and I will surrender  
                           G#           A 
the sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead  
                        F#m 
A light to burn all the empires  
                       A                 E 
so bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be  
                          F#m 
In love with all of these vampires  
                          G#             A   Am 
so you can leave like the sane abandoned me
