VERSE 1:
A5add9                                  
Breakin' my back just to know your name,
                                                Dm  F
Seventeen tracks and I've had it with this game.
A5add9
A breakin' my back just to know your name,
                                            
But heaven ain't close in a place like this.
                                              Dm  Dm7  F
Anything goes but don't blink, you might miss,
A5add9                                         
'Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this.
                                               F
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this,
                    G                          Am
Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight.
F                                      G4
Never thought I'd let a rumour ruin my moonlight.


CHORUS 1:
N/C           Am                   F
Well somebody told me you had a boyfriend,
                      G
Who looked like a girlfriend.
                  E            Am
That I had in February of last year,
                 F                   G    Esus4
It's not confidential, I've got potential.


VERSE 2:
A5add9 
Ready? Let's roll onto something new,
                                              Dm  F
Takin' it's toll then I'm leaving without you.
A5add9
'Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this,
                                               Dm  Dm7  F
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this.
                    G                          Am
Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight.
F                                      G4
Never thought I'd let a rumour ruin my moonlight.

Who looked like a girlfriend.
                  E            Am
That I had in February of last year,
                 F                   G    Esus4       
It's not confidential, I've got potential.

PRE-CHORUS:
F5       G5          D5
Pace yourself for me,
       C5     D5    F5
I said maybe, baby, please.
           G5    A5       G5  F5
But I just don't know now,   (Maybe baby)
     E5                      G5
When all I want to do is try.
