Intro: Am
(Occasionally hammer on and off from the D, G, and B strings. This may not be right, but 
it sounds alright.)

Am                                        F
Naked and retched and retching on a hotel bathroom floor,
G
somewhere in the City
Am                                              F
Three days no sleeping, not eating, not feeling good anymore
            G                   Dm                          F
Drenched in sweat and self-pity now, it's not a pretty sight


F       G         Am       F
What to say in my defense,
F G             Am
I was imperfect tense
F                 G              C          G        
F  Dm
Used to have such balance, but I don't know where it went
Dm           G                  Am
So won't you be my present sense

Am
(Occasionally hammer on and off from 4th fret to 2nd on the D string)

Am                                             F
Breaking, I'm shaking, it's taking a long long time
                      G
To come down off this murderous medication
Am                                         F
Trying to remember, my reasons for running myself
         G                    Dm      F
into the ground with such dedication


F       G         Am       F
What to say in my defense,
F G             Am
I was imperfect tense
F                 G              C          G        
F  Dm
Used to have such balance, but I don't know where it went
Em           A             Cadd9--A   Em7--A
So won't you be my present sense,     sense


    Am   G   F     C  G
Cos it's not meant to be
C F  Am   G  F
I am lost at sea
   Dm C     G    F  G
So mermaids sing to me
       C
Of the better times and the things that can be
         Am
Like the diamonds in the Mediterranean sea
       C
Or the beatings and sleeping and times that I took
       Am
And of washing the drink and the drugs from my blood
         F                 G
And I've nothing to say in my defense
    F                G
I'm far from perfect I'm still tense
     F                 G
They say that love can change you once
       F                 G
Please say that love can change me once
        F
Come on change me

End on G
