Dsus2

            Dsus2
It's either something in their eyes,
   Bm9
Or something in the drink
        Gmaj7           G/A
But whatever it is they both stop and think
        Dsus2             Bm9
There's no going back and nothing above
     Gmaj7                  A      F#/A#
It's lust and loneliness but never love.

Gmaj7                 Dmaj7
She takes a breath as he takes his keys
F#m7dim5                  Gmaj7   F#m7
First name terms is the extent of it
        Em9               D6
There's no getting out as they're going in
    Gmaj7            A         F#/A#
But by tomorrow they both will begin

     Bm                   Bm/A
To regret and renege on a bond they have struck
  Gmaj7                  A      F#/A#
A small price to pay and casual luck
Bm                 Bm/A
Some lose nothing, some lose a lot
        Gmaj7           Bm     Bm/A A6
But whatever we have is all we have got.

D6 Bm9 Gmaj7 G/A

Dsus2                 Bm9
He takes her hand and leads to the room
   Gmaj7                            G/A
In half light and silence for their clothes to remove
        Dsus2                 Bm9
There's doubt in her mind but hope in her heart
          Gmaj7            A          F#/A#
That this last one of many may be the start.

        Gmaj7                     Dmaj7
So they wriggle and writhe for an hour or two
    F#m7dim5               Gmaj7      F#m7
But time has no place when two are consumed.
     Em9                         D6
They moan and they gasp but they don't really speak
   Gmaj7                A         F#/A#
As no conversation could fit this scene.

Gmaj7 Dmaj7 F#m7dim5 Gmaj7 F#m7 Em7
(vocal scat)
Dmaj7 Em7 G/B F#m/A A#aug G/A

    Dsus2               Bm9
And tomorrow as always, always comes
   Gmaj7           G/A
As she slips away, He still dumb
Dsus2                    Bm9
He felt the urge just as she felt the need
        Gmaj7                  A            F#/A#
Now the need to get out, still carrying his seed,

      Gmaj7                     Dmaj7
Which trickles down her leg and onto her shoe
F#m7dim5              Gmaj7       F#m7
Onto the pavement and then out of view
Em9                 D6
Into the gutter and down into a drain
Gmaj7               A6       F#7/A#
Joining a river and there to remain

        Bm                        Bm/A
There's no going back and there's nothing above
     Gmaj7                   A6        F#7/A#
It's lust or loneliness that drives us alone

Bm Bm/A Gmaj7 A F#/A#

Bm Bm/A Gmaj7

     Gm6                           A6     D
It's lust and loneliness, but it's seldom love.
