Intro: C Am Em G

Verse:
C                      Am
I hear she came from a distant star 
    Em                   G
In a vintage dress and a stolen car 
With a second hand copy of Planet Of The Apes 
I was living at the time with a Mrs. Swift 
It was a rent-free situation if you catch my drift 
There's always more than several ways to pay 

Bridge:
    Dm                 E7
She cast her spell she silenced the place 
        Am*                   Dm
With her full moon eyes in her night sky face 
G
"It's hard being human in a world like this" 
She purred in my ear and her hand brushed my wrist 

Chorus:
C                     Em
And I cried when I was born 
Am                 Em
Life seemed so uninviting 
F                 C                G
To ride the storm dodging bolts of lightening 
C                       Em
After darkness comes the dawn 
An                   Em 
And since I found you darling 
F                 C
I cried when I was born 
G            Gsus4  G
But I'll die laughing 

She left a trail of bobby pins 
And other mysterious female things 
And it led me to my ladies chamber door 
I knocked once and I knocked twice 
"Come in" she said, "and don't be shy 
Hang up your clothes but leave your hang ups on the floor"

I did exactly as she said 
And lay beside her on the bed 
It's hard being human but the alternative is worse 
Our curse is our beauty and our beauty is our curse 

And I cried when I was born 
Life seemed so uninviting 
To ride the storm dodging bolts of lightening 
After darkness comes the dawn 
And since I found you darling 
I cried when I was born 
But I'll die laughing 

Dm                           Am*
Our love affair could be everlasting 
E7                            Am*                
Love vanishes when you try to grasp it 
Dm
And if you're looking 
Am*
For something to hold on to 
G
Then I guess its change 
It's change that's calling the tune we dance to 

I cried when I was born 
Life seemed so uninviting 
To ride the storm dodging bolts of lightening 
After darkness comes the dawn 
And since I found you darling 
I cried when I was born 
But I'll die laughing   

C Am Em G
C Am End on Em
