Shaping up and shipping out

Check me in and check me out
    Em              C    C  G
Do you like walking in the rain?
           Em                    C   C   G
When you think of love, do you think of pain?
 Em               C   C   G
You can tell me what you see
Em                 C  C G
I will choose what I believe

 Em             C  C   G
See you in the marketplace
 Em               C C G
Walking 'round at 8 a-m
 Em            C    C   G
Got 2 hours before my flight
 Em            C    C G
Luck be on my side tonight
            Em            C    C    G
You're the reason that I feel so strong
     Em              C  C   G
The reason that I'm hanging on
      Em             C     C  G
You know you gave me all the time
      Em          C    C   G
Well did I give enough of mine?

    You're talking in your sleep all the time
