1st Verse:

D               Bm                  G
 Breathe in for luck, breathe in so deep
            A            C         D
This air is blessed, you share with me
D              Bm                G
 This night is wild, so calm and dull
                  A         C    D         
These hearts they race from self control
D              Bm                    G          
 Your legs are smooth, as they graze mine
            A (pause)
We're doing fine, we're doing nothing at all

Chorus:

A                                           
 My hopes are so high that your kiss might 
F#m
kill me,
             G
so won't you kill me
         F#m   G     
So I die happy
D                             F#m
 My heart is yours to fill or burst,
            G                F#m
to break or bury, or wear as jewelry
     G    F#m    D
Whichever you prefer

2nd Verse:

D                                  Bm
The words are hushed, lets not get busted
         G                   A       C
Just lay entwined here, undiscovered
D                                  Bm
 Safe and near from all the stupid questions
             G                       A       C
“Hey did you get some?” Man, that is so dumb
D                 Bm                          G (pause)
 Stay quiet, stay near, stay close they can't hear

So we can get some

Chorus:

A                                           
 My hopes are so high that your kiss might 
F#m
kill me,
             G
so won't you kill me
         F#m   G     
So I die happy
D                             F#m
 My heart is yours to fill or burst,
            G                F#m
to break or bury, or wear as jewelry
     G    F#m    D
Whichever you prefer

Bridge/Outro:

Bm                       G 
  Hands down this is the best day
      D   
I can ever remember
A
Always remember
    Bm                        G    
the sound of your stereo, the dim of the soft lights,
    D                            A
the scent of your hair, that you twirl in your fingers
        Bm         (pause)            G  
And the time on the clock, when we realized it's so late
         D                      A
and this walk that we shared, together
    Bm                       G
The streets were wet and the gate was locked
     D                A
So I jumped it, and I let you in
        Bm                           G
And you stood at your door with your hands on my waist
        D                  A
and you kissed me like you meant it 
      Bm             G
And I knew, that you meant it,
         D                  A
that you meant it, that you meant it 
      Bm             G
And I knew, that you meant it,
         D (hold)
that you meant it
