AmF (x02210@1)- Dm - Am

AmI'm (x02210@1)so far away from you
FPacing (133211@1)up and down my room
Dm (xx0231@1)                           AmDoes (x02210@1)Jesus only love a man who loses?
AmI (x02210@1)turn on the radio
F (133211@1)                     
There's some cat on the saxophone 
Dm (xx0231@1)                    AmLaying (x02210@1)down a litany of excuses
AmThere's (x02210@1)madhouse longing in my baby's eyes
FShe (133211@1)rubs the lamp between her thighs
Dm (xx0231@1)                          AmAnd (x02210@1)hopes the genie comes out singing
AmShe (x02210@1)lives in some forgotten song
F (133211@1)And moves like she is zombie-strong
Dm (xx0231@1)                                  AmBreathes (x02210@1)steady as the pendulum keeps swinging

C - G - Am

Am (x02210@1)                        F (133211@1)  AmYou (x02210@1)better hold on to yourself

AmF (x02210@1)- Dm - Am

AmWell, (x02210@1)cities rust and fall to ruin
F (133211@1)                          
Factories close and cars go cruisin'
Dm (xx0231@1)                         AmIn (x02210@1)around the borders of her vision
AmShe (x02210@1)says ooh
   FAs (133211@1)Jesus makes the flowers grow
Dm (xx0231@1)                            AmAll (x02210@1)around the scene of her collision

C (x32010@1)  G (320003@1)          AmYou (x02210@1)know I would,   yes, I would
Am (x02210@1)    F (133211@1)        AmI (x02210@1)would hold on to yourself

AmF (x02210@1)- Dm - Am

In the middle of the night 
I try my best to chase outside
The phantoms and the ghosts and fairy-girls
On 1001 nights like these
She mutters open sesame and Ali Baba and his forty thieves
Launch her off the face of the world

You know one day I'll come back and I'd hold on to yourself
To yourself, I'd hold on to yourself

Ooh baby, I'm a 1000 miles away
And I just don't know what to say
Cause Jesus only loves a man who bruises
But darling, we can clearly see
It's all life and fire and lunacy
And excuses and excuses and excuses

Well, you know if I could, I would
I'd lie right down and I'd hold on to yourself
Yeah, I would lie right down and I would hold on to yourself
One day I'll come back to you and I'd hold on to yourself
Yeah, I'm gonna come back, gonna lie down
And I would hold on to yourself
Yeah, to yourself
