One of my favorite songs of Arctic Monkeys' fantastic album "Humburg". Enjoy.


Intro:
F#m G F#m G F#m
G F#m


       G         F#m        G
I was biting the time zone,
         F#m          G            F#m         G
And we embellish the banks of our bloodstreams,
          F#m            G      A
And threw caution to the colourful
             G                 F#m  G
And then we fell asleep in the car,
          F#m    G      F#m         G
Until the bumps woke me up in your grip
        F#m           G       A
And the tide took me to your mouth,
           G                         F#m  G
And then swept me back down to your palms
               F#m       G          A
It’s them that put me inside the reminder


       G               F#m
That yours is the only ocean,
                          A F#m
(Yours Is the only ocean)
                         A F#m  
That I wanna swing from,
                         A F#m
Yours is the only ocean,
                     A
That I wanna hang on


F#m G F#m G
F#m G F#m

              G   F#m      G
I've got this ego mechanic,
              F#m           G      F#m  G
She’s always trying to give me vitamins
              F#m          G       A
Oh she’d be frightened of your reflection,
      G                 F#m  G
I preferred her as a cartoon
           F#m G      F#m        G
If I could be someone else for a week,
     F#m       G           A
I’d spend it chasing after you,
                G               F#m  G
Cos she’s not shattering my attitude,
          F#m      G         A
No matter how she folds the potion


G                 F#m
Yours is the only ocean,
                          A F#m
(Yours Is the only ocean)
                          A F#m
That I wanna swing from,
                          A F#m
Yours is the only ocean,
                        A  F#m
That I want to hang on-...-to

A F#m A F#m
A F#m

        A     F#m
(I’m swinging on)

A F#m A F#m A F#m A

F#m          A    F#m    A
Yours is the only ocean,
F#m          A    F#m    A
Yours is the only ocean,
F#m          A    F#m    A
Yours is the only ocean,
F#m          A    F#m    A
Yours is the only ocean


F#m

[In the next section, the F#m chord is 3 times longer than the E chord.]

E F#m
E F#m    E F#m
E F#m    E

F#m                E  F#m              E
Potion approaching,  shield your eyes,
F#m                E  F#m        E 
Potion approaching,   visualize,
F#m             E  F#m             E
Holding a token,  swollen in size,
F#m                    E    F#m 
Potion approaching,  shield your eyes


E
F#m G F#m G
F#m G F#m

                G       F#m          G
Oh but if we’re gonna escape though,
    F#m             G         F#m    G
We really ought to think it through,
          F#m         G          A        G   F#m
Would you like me to build you a go kart?
