NOTE: this isn't intended to be an accurate transcription of the song. The real
song is played on a keyboard and it sounds like crap when played on a guitar. My
version is real easy to play, and it sounds great on guitar. You just have to
figure out a strumming pattern. Email me if u got any questions or comments. Thanks.

   Am  G   C   F   E


Am G C F
Am G C F E

[Verse 1]
Am           G
I picked you out 
C          F
Of a crowd to talk to you 
Am                G
Said I liked your shoes 
C               F
You said thanks can I follow you? 
Am             G
So it's up the stairs 
C                F
And out of view, no prying eyes 
Am            G
I poured some wine 
C                 F                 E
I asked your name you asked the time
Am             G
Now it's two o'clock, 
C                  F
the club is closed we're up the block
Am            G
Your hands on me 
C             F
Pressing hard against your jeans
Am                G
Your tongue in my mouth 
C                        F
Trying to keep the words from coming out
Am                 G
You didn't care to know 
C            F             E
Who else may have been you before

(the rest of the song follows the same pattern. I'm too lazy to do the rest :p)

[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

I want a lover I don't have to love 
I want a girl who's to sad to give a fuck
Where's the kid with the chemicals? 
I thought he said to meet me here but I'm not sure
I got the money if you got the time 
You said it feels good I said I'll give it a try
Then my mind went dark 
We both forgot where your car was parked 
Let's just take the train
I'll meet up with the band in the morning
Bad actors with bad habits 
Some sad singers 
They just play tragic
And the phone's ringing 
And the van's leaving 
Let's just keep touching
Let's just keep keep singing
I want a lover I don't have to love
I want a boy who's so drunk he doesn't talk
Where's the kid with the chemicals
I got a hunger and I can't seem to get full
I need some meaning I can memorize
The kind I have always seems to slip my mind
But you but you 
You write such pretty words
But life's no story book 
Love is an excuse to get hurt 
And to hurt 
"Do you like to hurt?" 
"I do! I do!"
"Then hurt me."
