[Verse 1]

Bb                                            F
Sitting here wasted and wounded at this old piano

       Bb                                          F
Trying hard to capture the moment, this morning I don't know

          Am                       Bb 
'Cause a bottle of vodka's still lodged in my head and some

F                           Fsus4           F           Bb
Blonde gave me nightmares, think that she's still in my bed

                              C                          F
As I dream about movies they won't make of me when I'm dead

[Verse 2(as verse 1)]

With an iron clad fist I wake up and frnch kiss the morning
While some marching band keeps its own beat in my head while were talking
About all of the things that I long to believe
About love, the truth and what you mean to me

Bb                             C           F 
And the truth is, baby you're all that I need

(Richie sings backround vocals three steps higher)

          Dm       C        Bb        F
I want to lay you down in a bed of roses

     Dm         C        Bb      F
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails

            Bb          F           Bb     F
Oh, I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is

     Dm   C   Bb               F 
And lay you down on a bed of roses

[Verse 3]

Well I'm so far away, each step that I take's on my way home
A king's ransom in dimes, I'd give each night to see through 
this payphone
Still I run out if time it's hard to get through
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
I'll just close my eyes, and whisper baby blind love is true



C          Bb                       C
Well this hotel bar's hangover whiskey's ran dry

The bar keeper's wig's crooked and she's givin' me the eye

        Bb                               C          F
Well I might have said yes, but I laughed, till I died


Play  'Dm - C - Bb - F' four times in the same rhythm as the chourus


        Bb                                                 F
Now as you close your eyes, you know I'll be thinking about you

           Bb                                               F
While my mistress, she calls me to stand in her spotlight again

             Bb                                            F
Tonight, I won't be alone, to know that don't mean I'm not lonely

          Dm          C            Bb                     F
I've got nothin' to prove for it's you that I'd die to defend

[Chourus] x2
