VERSE 1:
E6                       A
Julia sang late into the night
                F#m                  A/F#                     E
Salvation was a light hanging in the street for the cars on Alvarado
E6                        A
Spanish words advertising fast food chains 
               F#m                      A/F#                E  
Line the dirty streets, cracking in the heat that lead to Alvarado
E6                                    A
There’s water still although it is unnatural
                         F#m                    A/F#                 E
But the price is getting high as the hours roll by like the cars on Alvarado
E6                                     A
She’s sleeping drunk in the desert vegetation
             F#m                         A/F#                  E 
Go out for a walk it’s colder when it’s dark but we can always go home

CHORUS:
E
Oh desire, you have a really twisted sense of humor
A                             E
To turn a saint into a sinner your lessons are so cruel
E
Hello desire, you always seem to find me when I’m hiding
A                  
If I could lose you I wouldn’t use you,
E
you know you’ve got me slipping and sliding
F#m   A         E
in and out of my mind

*finger picking*

VERSE 2:
E6                            A
Resistance can submit to an existence
                F#m                        A/F#                   E
Pinch behind the ear, getting wetter every year and the oxygen is fading
E6                                                  A
There’s dust in the wind getting kicked up by the traffic jam
                F#m                         A/F#                 E
Brings it to my door so I have to scrub the floor outside on the patio
       E6                                      A
I hear restless girls playing hard to get with desperate boys
              F#m                        A/F#                      E
Standing in a line but I haven’t got the time to wait here for the doors to open.

CHORUS:
E
Oh desire, you have a really twisted sense of humor
A                             E
To turn a saint into a sinner your lessons are so cruel
E
Hello desire, you always seem to find me when I’m hiding
A                  
If I could lose you I wouldn’t use you,
E
you know you’ve got me slipping and sliding
F#m    A  
in and out
F#m    A
In and out
F#m    A         F#m7   E
In and out of my mind

*BREAK*

E

CONCLUSION:
        E
I can’t make it without you
                   C#m
You’re blood is in my head 
Swaying like wine
            E
And all the bullshit I said
             C#m
I’ll take it back now
  A          
I really want you to know
E
I’m sorry
                       C#m
The way you seem so disappointed
When I’m not trying
        E
And the healing around us
                        C#m
It makes me think we’re further
     A
Than you expected
A      E
Brother
A      E
Sister

Repeat^ and add 2nd time:
A      E
Lover
A      E
Mother

OUTRO same as INTRO:
E6  A  F#m  A/F#  E  (end with finger picking)
