Intro: E



E           C#m                     F#m   
Born to multiply, born to gaze into night skies,
         A             F#m      E
All you want's one more Saturday.
                      C#m
But look here, until then
                       F#m
They're gonna buy your nice time
             A                        F#m 
So keep your wick in the air and your feet in the fetters
B
To the day.
                  E
You come in doing cartwheels
            B
We all go out by ourselves
                      E
And your shape on the dance floor
                           B
Will have me thinking such filth and gauge my eyes.
           C#m         A
You'd be damned to be one of us girl
          C#m         A
Faced with a dodo's conundrum
E     F#m                  A
Ah, I felt like I could just fly
     G#m                          B
But nothing'll happen every time I try.



Woo ooo, Woo ooo


E                     C#m                           F#m
A dual tone under wall, selfish fool and hoped you'd save us all
         A             F#m            E
Never dreamt of such sterile hands,
                             C#m
You keep them folded in your lap,
                     F#m
And raise them up to beg for scraps,
               A                          F#m 
You know, he's holding you down, With the tips of his fingers
B
just the same,
                          E
You'll be pulled from the ocean,
                      B
But just a minute too late,
                E
Or changed by a potion,
                            B
We'll find a handsome young mate, For you to love.
          C#m       A
You'll be damned to pining through the windowpanes,
          C#m                            A
You know you'll change your life for any ordinary Joe,
E     F#m                     A
And though your night will go on,
                G#m                         B
Your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold.

E                                      B
Been in love since you were twenty-one,
E                                 B
You haven't laughed since January,
E                                            B
You try and make this up this is so much fun,
E                                   B
But we know it to be quite contrary.
E                     B
lalalala, la la la la
C#m        A
Dare to be one of us, girl,
C#m        A
Facing the Andrum's conundrum,
E     F#m                     A
Ah, I feel like I should just cry,
     G#m                         B/A
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin,
     G#m                                  B/A
You're humoring your cote, you don't know how long I've been,
     G#m                 B/A
Watching the lantern dim,
G#m              B/A
Starved of oxygen,
   A                            F#m                 E
So give me your hand, and let's jump out the window.

In the verse where they switch from A to F#m, there's a bit of G#m too (A-G#m-F#m). At the end there forget B/A, just
play A, and then the last three chords on "so give me your hand..." should be F#m A B and then finish with E

For the "everytime I try, try, try ect" part and pretty much all of the G#m to B parts, you hit the B twice then the A
twice and then the F#m twice and then the E. You preety much do hit them when James says "try". Its a little walkdown
thingy. Also for the "one more saturday" parts and similar parts there is a quick G#m minor AFTER the A as well ,making
it A G#m F#m E.
