[Verse 1]
D
Tonite on Keyhole street,
D
where tablet, spoon & needle meet
                    G
Painfully dangerous fallen angels
                              D
will swoon over crooners with powdery eyes
D
On Ellington Square, they're dying their hair
D
and they're finger painting on their criminal stares
                G
They'll have to struggle to tell,
                        D
paradise from hell without me tonight

[Chorus]
       A                        Bm               A G
And, I don't understand - No, I don't understand
       A                                        D
What it means to be a married man, I don't understand

[Verse 2]
D
A summer ago after years of gathering mold
                                     G
She stowed her ripped up slips & her jet black lipstick
                            D
away and let her strawberry blonde roots grow
D
Now it's hard to believe, we were the King & the Queen
D
of the fiends in the leather and mascara scene
    G                                  D
and trampiest pair of vampire magazine pin-ups
D
on dance hall row

[Chorus]
       A                        Bm               A G
And, I don't understand - No, I don't understand
       A                                        D
What it means to be a married man, I don't understand

[Bridge]
       Bm           G
In the warm morning light
     D                  A
the undead all someday arise
            Bm                        G
and if the sunlight don't strike them blind
                    D                    A
they'll wind up in limbo condemned to survive
             Bm    A G               D
I don't understand,     I don't understand

[Repeat Intro]
G        D        G       A       D

[Verse 3]
D
I remember a June, when each afternoon
D
she awakened me softly, with kisses and coffee
       G
and sat naked on the edge of the bed,
                 D
smoking Marlboro reds til the rise of the moon
D
But I'm too numb now to dream, suspended between
D
the handsome woman she's become
                     G
and the need for the hellcat she used to be
                        D
I don't see why they both can't be true

[Chorus]
       A                        Bm               A G
And, I don't understand - No, I don't understand
       A                                        D
What it means to be a married man, I don't understand

[Bridge]
       Bm           G
In the warm morning light
     D                  A
the undead all someday arise
            Bm                        G
and if the sunlight don't strike them blind
                    D                    A
they'll wind up in limbo condemned to survive
             Bm    A G               D
I don't understand,     I don't understand

[Verse 4]
D
Tonight on Keyhole street
D
where fabric, moonlight and heat all meet
                       G
awkwardly cruel little harlots will drool
                              D
over bar stool sex tools with X's for eyes
D
On Ellington Square they're teasing their hair
D
and they're painting on their latex play wear
                G
they'll have to balance the peril
                         D
of paradise and hell without me tonight

[Final CHORUS]
       A                        Bm               A G
And, I don't understand - No, I don't understand
      A
I can hold her sweet face in my hands
              D
I still don't understand

[Repeat Intro]
G        D        G       A       D

[Outro]
     G        D           G           A        D
Mmmm mm, Mmmm mm, Mm mmmm mm, Mm mmmm mm, Mmmm mm,
     G        D           G           A        D
Ohhh Oh, Ohhh Oh, Oh Ohhh Oh, Oh Ohhh Oh, Ohhh Oh
