perfection (and also the brilliant Guide to Better Living
days) and caressing my ears over the past few years.

Em	F#m(9th)	Bm	Bm/A


G				F#
you look at me as a stranger
	Bm			Bm/A
i look at you as a friend
G				F#
i never thought i was in danger
	Bm			Bm/A
til we came up right up to the end

G				F#
i never was one to play guns
	Bm			Bm/A
when you shot them in the park
G				F#
so maybe you'll call me later
	Bm			Bm/A
sometime after dark

		Em
bet you couldn't leave it
F#
leave it
Bm
you leave it
Bm/A
you leave it all behind

G				F#
we can get complicated
	Bm			Bm/A
we can get out of line
G				F#
we can go out and play that
	Bm			Bm/A
buried up to our necks in the vines?
G				F#
but nobody ever listens
	Bm			Bm/A
to stupid songs u play
G
well maybe they were wrong you won't know
F#
please come back baby please don't go
	Bm				Bm/A
no one gets to, no one gets to say

		Em
bet you couldn't leave it
F#
leave it
Bm
you leave it
Bm/A
you leave it all behind

Riff 1

		Em		F#m
you might say that its over
		Bm	Bm/A
and maybe we'll go on
		Em		F#m
you might live for ever
		Bm	Bm/A
until nobody will ever know you're gone
		Em		F#m
and i can't help think about
		Em		F#m
you might be a better bride?
		Em		F#m		Riff 2
if you have just left it all behind


		Em
bet you couldn't leave it
F#
leave it
Bm
you leave it
Bm/A
you leave it all behind


Now here's the obligatory "that's all I got for tonight,
