Lyrics: (chord positions as accurate as possible, may not be 100% good)

Strophe 1: Riff 1 in the version of your choice
Em        Em     G          Bm           Em Em G Bm
 Make our escape, you're my own papillon.
Em               Em   G      Bm              Em
 World turns too fast, feel love before it's gone.
Em    G            Bm
   It kicks like a sleep twitch!
etc. 
My papillon, feel love when it's shone.
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

Chorus: Riff 2
C   C   C     G                   C/D     C/D
Darling, just don't put down your guns yet.
C/D       G           C      C
if there really was a God here,
C             G                C/D   C/D  C/D   G
He would have raised a hand by now.
C   etc. 
Now darling, you're born, get old and die here.
Well, that's quite enough for me.
               G            C/D      C/D
We'll find our own way home somehow. 
C/D                           Em (Riff 1)
It kicks like a sleep twitch! 

Strophe 2: 
No sense of doubt or what you could achieve.
Well, I've found you out, I've seen the life you wish to leave,
But it kicks like a sleep twitch!
You will choke, choke on the air you try to breathe.
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

Chorus: 
Darling, now just don't put down your guns yet.
If there really was a God here,
He'd have raised a hand by now.
Darling, well, you're born, get old and die here.
Well that's quite enough for me, dear.
We'll find our own home somehow.

Riff 1 (repeat as much as you need to)
It kicks like a sleep twitch!
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

(Play riff 1 a final time, with our without 'it kicks like a sleep twitch', and end on Em)
