INTRO
Em    C    X2

VERSE 1
Em                                  C
To say the things I want to say to you would be a crime
Em                                  C
To admit Im still in love with you after all this time
           D                              Em
Id rather let you touch my arm until you die
D                                          C
Seduce with me with your charms until Im drunk on them
                     Em
Go home and drink in bed
           D                  C
And never let myself be in love like that again

Em                            C

VERSE 2
Em                             C
Light a cigarette and think of you and walk away
Em                                C
Turning all the words around in my head I wont say
D                                     C
Because all of these triangles and squares
                        Em
the memory we seem to share
            D                  C
replays a distant love that plays my records on

Em

CHORUS
D       C      Em       D          C
Ne-ver let my-self love like that again
D       C      Em       D          C(Continue)
Ne-ver let my-self love like that again

VERSE 3
Em                                 C
To say the words I want to say to you would be a lie
Em                                  C 
By the time I get the courage, I am drunk and you are tired
D                                C
Alone in this basement where I will write these songs
    Em                  D          C
The things Ill never say to you again and you know why
Em

CHORUS
D       C      Em        D        C
Ne-ver let my-self love like that again
D       C      Em        D        C
Ne-ver let my-self love like that again
D       C      Em        D        C
Ne-ver let my-self love like that again
D       C      Em        D        C
Ne-ver let my-self love like that again

Thanks so much for posting. Please post more SVE! I haven't picked up a guitar in 10 years and she has inspired me to. Just want to recreate these songs.
