[Intro Riff] x4
F Am G 


Am                    Dm/A
Dig if you will the picture
    G                     E7+5/G# E7/G#
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
    Am                    Dm/A
The sweat of your body covers me
G          
Can you my darling
E7+5/G#   E7/G#
Can you picture this?

Am                 Dm/A
Dream if you can a courtyard
   G                        E7+5/G# E7/G#
An ocean of violets in bloom
Am             Dm/A
Animals strike curious poses
G
They feel the heat
    E7+5/G#      E7/G#   Am
The heat between me and you

Am                           Dm/A
How can you just leave me standing?
G                          E7+5/G# E7/G#
Alone in a world that's so cold? (So cold)
Am                      Dm/A
Maybe I'm just too demanding
G                      E7+5/G# E7/G#
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold

Am                        Dm/A
Maybe you're just like my mother
G                 E7+5/G# E7/G#
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Am                       Dm/A
Why do we scream at each other
G             
This is what it sounds like
E7+5/G#   E7/G#
When doves cry

Riff 4x
F Am G 

Am                   Dm/A
Touch if you will my stomach
G                      E7+5/G# E7/G# 
Feel how it trembles inside
Am                        Dm/A
You've got the butterflies all tied up
G
Don't make me chase you
E7+5/G#   E7/G#
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I'm just too demanding (maybe maybe)
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold (too bold)
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (why)
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

This is technically the most right version on here ... it's just got some funky chords that are hard to play. Not sure why people are giving this 3 star rating, but if it is based on difficulty, that would be unfortunate.

For E7+5/G# I play 43011x

Just a tad easier.
