Intro*:  Bb       Eb

Verse 1:
Bb 
To know her is to love her
                     Eb                                 Bb
I'm goin' under cover to catch a glimpse but not get caught
Bb                                                                Eb
But to see her, could be worse, if I don't get my head straight first
                                Bb
On second thought I guess I'll not


Pre-chorus 1:
C                               Eb
She's almost brighter than the sun
                     Bb                          C                          Eb 
Seems to me to be unfair when you consider everyone who pales when they compare
             Bb
When they compare

Chorus:
Bb                                                           Eb
Can’t hold a candle to her, ‘cause all the moths get in the way
                                                      Bb
And they’ll begin to chew her entire attire until it frays
                                    C               Eb               Bb
She outshines anyone whoever might dare to bask in the same candlelight


Verse 2:
Bb 
Oh please, don’t seat us in the back
                               Eb
With all the insects and the trash
                         Bb
She is the lady, I’m the tramp.
Bb             
Collecting stares from pairs close by
                           Eb
Then flutters in the butterfly
                               Bb
You, just a moth drawn to the lamp


Pre-chorus 2:
 C                         Eb
She’s like an ancient artifact;
                                 Bb
Something you’re lucky to have found
                                     C
She’ll pinch the nerves in all the necks
                             Eb
When she turns those heads around
              Bb
Those heads around


* = The intro chords are also the chords that are played between chorus/verse/
wherever you like. :P


Other notes:
- I personally like to play this song with a Capo on the 3rd fret with all the:
   - Bb to G
   - Eb to C
   - C  to A
Just a preference.

- At the end of the actual song, it goes "C, Eb, C, Eb" and then some other chord 
before resolving at Bb. I can't really figure it out. >_> I guess if you find it 
out, you could put a comment on my profile about it.

- I'm 95% sure I got the right chords here, but just to cover myself, this is just 
my interpretation so yeh. :P

really not sure about that Gm, I've tried it normally and at Capo 3, and it doesn't sound right, maybe it's just me...

I figured it out, the Gm, should be Eb, or C if it's Capo 3
