[Verse]

F             E               Fmaj7b5       
They call you ecstasy,nothing ever sticks to you
F               E
Not Velcro, not Scotch Tape
Fmaj7b5
Not my arms dipped in glue
            F                E           
Not if I wrap myself in nylon
                      Fmaj7b5
A piece of duct tape down my back
F                          E
Love pierced the arrow with a 12
            Fmaj7b5
And I can't get you back


[Chorus]

F       E       Fmaj7b5      
Ah, ecstasy, ecstasy

F       E       Fmaj7b5
Ecstasy, ah, ecstasy


[Verse]

F                          E                 
Across the streets an old Ford
                 Fmaj7b5 
They took off its wheels, the engine is gone
F                     E
In it seat sits a box
                        Fmaj7b5
With a note that says, "Goodbye Charlie, thanks a lot"
                F                       E
I see a child through a window with a bib
                         Fmaj7b5
And I think of us and what we almost did
F                             E
The Hudson rocketing with light
              Fmaj7b5
Ships pass the Statue of Liberty at night


[Chorus]

F    E         Fmaj7b5      
Ah, ecstasy, ecstasy

F    E         Fmaj7b5
Ecstasy, ah, ecstasy


[Verse]

       F                 E
Some men call me St. Ivory
             Fmaj7b5
Some call me St. Maurice
         F             E
I'm smooth as alabaster
               Fmaj7b5
With white veins running through my cheeks

     F                      E
Big stud through my eyebrow
              Fmaj7b5
A scar on my arm that says, "Domain"
         F               E
I put it over the tattoo 
        Fmaj7b5
That contained your name


[Chorus]

F    E         Fmaj7b5      
Ah, ecstasy, ecstasy

F    E           Fmaj7b5
Ecstasy, ah, ecstasy


[Verse]

          F                     E
The moon passing through a cloud
                Fmaj7b5
A body facing up is floating towards a crowd
       F                                E
And I think of a time and what I couldn't do
              Fmaj7b5
I couldn't hold you close, I couldn't become you
             F        
They call you ecstasy
                   E               Fmaj7b5                              
I can't hold you down, I can't hold you up
   F                          E
I feel like that car that I saw today
             Fmaj7b5
No radio, no engine, no hood

                   F                      E
I'm going to the cafe, I hope they've got music there
       Fmaj7b5
And I hope those guys can play
       F                
But if we have to part
                E  
I'll have a new scar right over my heart
Fmaj7b5             
I'll call it ecstasy


[Chorus]

F    E         Fmaj7b5      
Ah, ecstasy, ecstasy

F    E           Fmaj7b5
Ecstasy, ah, ecstasy
