Should've Kept My Eyes Shut
by Paul Heaton and David Rotheray

D Bm D Bm

                    D         Bm
I should've kept my eyes shut
                    D    Bm
But I had to go and peep
             D          Bm
But when you saw what I saw
           Em           A            Bm  A
Well, it's hard just to roll back to sleep

I would've kept me eyes shut
But I thought I heard you scream
And I've a penchant for violence
You don't seem to find in a dream
[ Tab from: ]
    G              D
The scene a little clearer
   G             D
My father with a rope
    G            D
And in the cage, centre-stage
     Bm                       A
It's mother who's destined to choke

        Em           A
And she choke and we choke
       D                           G
On the words that we wish we'd not spoke
Em                         A
Just when you felt you had someone to trust
D                       Db         G     A
Up comes the man with a dagger and cloak

I should've read the novels
Believed every word
But the stories they wrote
Were so different to ones that I'd heard

I should've kept my eyes shut
My mouth should've closed
But the mixture of vomit and blood
Just crept up through my nose

It became a little clearer
As soon as I awoke
My father stands with rope in hand
A screaming mother kneels in hope

And she hope and we hope
That the words that she said won't provoke
A smile is removed and a petal is crushed
What once was a laugh has turned into a joke

You should've kept your mouth shut
