[Intro](Accelerated strummed Bass & hi-hat rolls)
(Am)


[Verse 1](Accelerated strummed Bass & hi-hat rolls)
(Am)                      (D)            (Am)
You fired the first shot, without, fair warning,(Picked Bass & Drums rimshots)
(Am)
Love's silver bullet through the heart. (Staccato Lead & Rhythm Short Riff, with rim shots) 
Am                                  C                 Am
Shell shocked, you brought me to my knees...I've fall-en,
                          D
All is fair in love and w-ar.
                       C                   Am
I kissed your lips and heard the siren's c-all,
                            C      Am-G-D-F-Am
Into your spider's web I fa-al-ll. (Echoed with ascending Lead & Bass)


[Verse 2](Accelerated strummed Bass & hi-hat rolls)
(Am)                     (D)           (Am)
Into the battlefield, of lust, we thun-der,
                                     (D)
Like titans clashing through the n-i-ght.(Echoed)
(Followed by Lead & Bass lines, plus Rhythm Short Riff, with drum rim shots) 
C                      Am            C 
Over who will wear the crown of pass-ion,
    D                     Am
Let flesh and fantasy beg-in.
                                    D
Let pain and pleasure be our only s-in,
    F                      G         D
Let heaven’s fires burn so deep with-i-n.


[Chorus 1]
Am   G    Am         G              C
Invasion! That's how you come on to m-e,
Am   F             G                D
Invasion! You were armed with ecsta-cy.
Am   G        F                  G
Invasion! You claimed your victo-ry,
Am   F         G                  D
Invasion! Your love has conquered m-e.


[Verse 3]
Am                     C                  Am
A lonely hunter in dis-guise, she's a kil-ler,
                                 C            
She breaks the si-lence of the ni-ght.
    Am                C                     Am
And she uses all nine lives to stalk her pr-ey, 
              C
Then she stri-kes.
           D                       Am
And like a thorn you leave your st-ing,
                                    D
You shoot your arrow with cupid's w-ing.
           F                   G              D  
I feel the rush of blood, your to-u-ch can br-ing.


[Chorus 2]
Am   G    Am         G              C
Invasion! That's how you come on to m-e,
Am   F             G                D
Invasion! You were armed with ecsta-cy.
Am   G        F                  G
Invasion! You claimed your victo-ry,
Am   F         G                  D
Invasion! Your love has conquered m-e.


[Bridge](Accented Lead & Bass over)
F                                              D   
Hot blooded combat, got my back, against the w-a-ll,
F             G             Am
Hand to hand, soul to soul, red lights flash.
        F            G
And the winner takes a-ll.

Invasion! You claimed your victo-ry,
Am   F         G                  D     
Invasion! Your love has conquered m-e.

NOTES.
1.  This TAB only denotes the chords and in no way has attempted to capture the wild, soaring Lead & Bass 
riffs, throughout this song.  These riffs, could easily be the subject of separate TAB’s. 
2.  “…Former Journey singer Robert Fleischman provided vocals on Vinnie Vincent Invasion's self-titled 
debut album. The record included primarily the style of glam metal, with much of it re-worked versions 
of demos Vincent recorded in 1982 with former New England members Hirsch Gardner, Gary Shea, and 
Jimmy Waldo under the band name Warrior, with Vincent essentially replacing John Fannon as guitarist and 
vocalist. …”  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinnie_Vincent_Invasion
3.  The final 3.0 minutes of oscillating conjugal feedback and guitar wailing, have been omitted, for 
clarity. :-}
4.  The rhythm on this track, emulates the strummed Bass notes in the Am passages, by alternating the 
Am and Am7 XX2010 = C/E.  :-R
