Standard Tuning, No Capo
This time of night I could call you up
I'd get angry with athletic ease, break common laws in twos and threes
If I die clutching your photograph
Don't call me boring, It's just 'cause I like you
Well, Take me on back Take me on back and take me back
To the place where I could feel your heart
Is this the end or just the start of
Something really, really beautiful
Wrapped up and disguised as something really, really ugly,
C#5 C#5 C#5 Ab5 C5 F5
Come by and see me, I'm a love letter away
C#5 Ab5 C5 C5
I'd break your name before I'd say, "I really love you, love you, "
C#5 Ab5 C5 F5
I don't care if you saw, I watched every inch of film
Flash across your Roman features,
C5 C5 F5
And I loved it, loved it; I don't care if
You think I'm eager to shut your eyes, well
I'm sorry-everybody knows you can't break me with your gutter prose
Would you believe it, she sent me a letter,
The ring, it nearly weighs her down, she's got another boy, oh boy
Steady your ears Steady your ears and read my lips
Poetry is not a luxury, it's how I'll break this home
And when I'm really ill, won't you cradle me?
Man is not a noble animal, but maybe woman is, remember,
I heard you...
C#5 C#5 C#5 Ab5 C5
In-side your room , you said, "You never really live
C#5 A5 C5 C5
Until your back's against the wall, " oh did you really mean it?
C#5 Ab5 C5 F5
I never break my gaze, if just to see this scar remain reflected in your eyes
Ab5 C5 C5
I think it's time to go home
GUIT AR SOLO Use same progression as verse ( Ab5 C5 Bb5
Ab5 Eb5 Bb5 C#5 )
Oh, tell me your thoughts, tell me your thoughts on liberty,
See there's a place where I sink to sleeping
Oh, my vote is as red as my blood
Will you join me for another round? I haven't had the chance to speak yet
C#5 C#5 C#5 Ab5 E5
I break the law once every week to feel your touch,
C#5 C#5 C5 C5
What's a book to you in bed, Do you feel better, older?
D5 Ab5 C5 F5
This just makes me ill, your name is dripping from my pen
Still you're not around to curse,
C5 C5 F5
I'll drop the gun now, I'm still under you...
F5 C#5 repeated
Marianne, let the ghosts sleep tonight.
Marianne, let the ghosts sleep, just shut your eyes and burn the past away
