VERSE I:
They say that love often passes in a second, and
G(D)          D          A(D)        D
You can never catch it up, so I'm
G(D)    D              A(D)
Hanging on to you as though eternity beckoned, but it's
Em7
Clear that the match is rough
Common-sense will tell me not to try and continue, but I'm
A7(sus4)                         A7
After a piece of that diamond in you, So
A7(sus4)              A7
Keep an eye open, My
Bm
Spirit ain't broken, Your
C
Love's so incredible, Your
G
Body's so edible, You
A7(sus4)
Give me an overdose of love,
                       A7
But just a little is enough.

VERSE II:
I'm like a connoseiur of champagne cognac, The
G(D)       D             A(D)      D
Perfume nearly beats the taste
G(D)           D         A(D)
I eat an oyster and I feel the contact, But
Em7
More than one would be a waste
Some people want an endless line, that's true, But
A7(sus4)                    A7
All I have to have's a little time with you, A
A7(sus4)                      A7
Smile sets me reeling, A
Bm
Kiss feels like stealing, Your
C
Love is like heroin, This
G
Addict is mellowing,
A7(sus4)
I can't pretend that I'm tough,
                         A7
When just a little is enough.
                      G(D)    D   A(D)    D    G(D)   D   A(D)   D
*** INSTRUMENTAL BREAK:
Dm / / / C(no 3rd) | Dm [etc, repeated ad infinitum]
Just like a sailor heading into the sea, There's a
G(D)        D              A(D)     D
Gale blowing in my face, The
G(D)         D     A(D)
High wind scares me but I need the breeze, And I
Em7
Can't head for any other place
Life would seem so easy on the other tack, But
A7(sus4)                       A7
Even a hurricane won't turn me back, You
A7(sus4)               A7
Might be an island, on the
Bm
Distant horizon, but the
C
Little I see looks like
G
Heaven to me, and I don't
A7(sus4)
Care if the ocean gets rough,
                       A7
'Cause just a little is enough.
                         E(no 3rd) / / / | x 4
INSTRUMENTAL BREAK:
[Repeat all chords from "They say that love often passes" . . . "match
is
rough"]
Common-sense will tell me not to try and continue, but I'm
A7(sus4)                         A7
After a piece of that diamond in you, So
A7(sus4)              A7
Keep an eye open, My
Bm
Spirit ain't broken, Your
C
Love's so incredible, Your
G
Body's so edible, You
A7(sus4)
Give me an overdose of love,
                       A7
But just a little is enough.
                      E(no 3rd) / / / | [repeat to fade]

*** This INSTRUMENTAL BREAK is dominated by the D MINOR chord
(or Eb minor, if playing a keyboard).  Yet, the guitar is playing only
'power-chords' (ie, no 3rds).  So, the guitar is not responsible for
the
tonal 'colour' here.  Just slide from C to D (power-chords) across the
end/start of each bar.

This same process is happening throughout the 'E(no 3rd)' sections
towards
the end.  If you like, slide from D to E (power-chords) in the same
way.
