Dizzy hurricane
   G                         D
Oh god, I'm sick of sleeping alone
                    Em7
You're salty like a summer day

Kiss the sweat away

To your radio

[Verse]

G
You take me over
            Dm
I throw you up against the wall
      C
We've seen it all before
               Em
But this one's different
     F         C (mute)
It's deliberate

G
You send me reeling
        Dm
Calling out to you for more
    C                             Em
The value of this moment lives in metaphor
      F             C        D
Yeah, through it all

I don't know what it means but the Em7 diagram is of an Em/D. So which chord were you aiming for?
