Shake my head dizzy so I'll never know

You said if you're never coming back you have to go

E
I keep calling your name

I wanna hold you close
But I never wanna feel ashamed
So I keep calling at night
(I keep calling at night)
I wanna hold you close
I just never wanna hold you tight

C   
Could have given me something
Em        D
You my everything
C                               Em  D
You left me kneeling
C
I was one of those people
Em         D
You, my everything

For what it's worth
                    Em
For what it's worth

C
You were my backbone when
      Em                      D
My body ached with wearyness
C
You were my hometown when
     Em                            D
My heart was filled with loneliness
C
Just as the dark was rising
   Em                           D
I heard you close the door again
C
Just as the light turns off
   Em                           D
I know who I dream of


Chorus:

C   
Could have given me something

You, my everything
C
You, my everything


C
You are my only hope
Em                                D
The truth that dealt the consequence
C
I know you don't feel the same
Em                             D
You're sensible but it doesn't make sense
C
I know I'm gonna weep my heart out
Em                                           D
You know I'm gonna try much harder
C
But it isn't the shit in my head
Em                        D
Holding me under this time

Chorus:

C   
Could have given me something
Em        D
You my everything
C                               Em  D
You left me kneeling

Am                                             F
You wake up, I know it's time to go.
          Am                                                   F
With a spinning head, I lie and watch you smoke.
                Am                                                   F
Chase the hands on my watch and hold you close,
       Em                                   G
This misery is weightless as a stone.


Am                                                       F
Have you lost the same things I have lost?
                            Am         F
Do you know that panic I know?
Am                                           F
Would I see the terror in your face?
       Em                                   G
Do you know that fever I know?

Chorus:

           F     G    Am
I wish time was still.
         F     G     Am
We'd stay right here,
          F   G   Am
With time to kill,
          C          G       F
In our hearts without chains.

           F     G    Am
And if time was still,
           F     G    Am
We'd have no fear,
      F     G    Am
Or scars to heal,
           C          G       F
In our hearts without chains,
            C          G       F           G
In our hearts without chains.

Am                                                       F
You left everything behind except yourself,
             Am                                                   F
But all I see is question marks and nothing else.
                         Am                               F
You must have landed in New York by now.
Em                                      G
Please don't bring this love down.

Am                                                       F
Have you lost the same things I have lost?
                            Am         F
Do you know that panic I know?
Am                                           F
Would I see the terror in your face?
       Em                                   G       Am (piano)
Do you know that fever I know?

Chorus:

           F     G    Am
I wish time was still.
         F     G     Am
We'd stay right here,
          F   G   Am
With time to kill,
          C          G       F
In our hearts without chains.

           F     G    Am
And if time was still,
           F     G    Am
We'd have no fear,
      F     G    Am
Or scars to heal,
           C          G       F
In our hearts without chains,
            C          G       F        Em G
In our hearts without chains.

F                      C       G
Don't bring this love down.
Don't bring this love down.

F                      C       G
Don't bring this love down.
Don't bring this love down.

Chorus:

           F     G    Am
I wish time was still.
         F     G     Am
We'd stay right here,
          F   G   Am
With time to kill,
          C          G       F
In our hearts without chains.

           F     G    Am
And if time was still,
           F     G    Am
We'd have no fear,

Take my fate in your hands
Bm      A
We've got a lot that hasn’t even began
G
Something is calling us,
Em
We’re breaking free,
Bm
I’m curious,
A
I need to see.

G        Em                     Bm
Like a flash before our eyes,
            A
We're already into the night,
G
And if it feels like we’re dreaming,
Believe it, believe it.

(Yeah)

Chorus:

G Em                                    Bm
We don't have to wait 'til the morning,

Just stay awake, stay awake.


G                        Em
Bring me down, side by side,
Bm              A
While our reflections make our bodies collide.
G                          Em
So full of energy, nothing to hide,
Bm                        A
No need to sleep, we come alive,
G                    Em                   Bm
And if we’re gonna take this ride,

We can go wherever we like

And if it feels like we’re dreaming,
Believe it, believe it.

Chorus:

G Em                                    Bm
We don't have to wait 'til the morning,

G  Em  Bm  A (it’s the same)
We're going on a journey
It was over like a flash before our eyes
We're going on a journey
It was over like a flash before our eyes
We're already into the night


6) UNDER CONTROL

Capo IV  Em C

Em
I'll never forget that feeling
When I watched you disappear
              C
And you made me stop believing
I could fight away the fear
Em
Now the smoke has cleared
And the end is near
It was my illusion
C
Like a broken dream I was incomplete
              D                                           Em
But your love was never the missing piece.


Chorus:
                                         Am    C   Em   D 
I feel like I am dreaming again
                                         Am    C   Em   D 
I feel like I am seeing again
                                         Am    C   Em   D 
I feel like I am breathing again
                                 Am    C   
I got it under control
                                 Em   D 
I got it under control
                               Em
I got it under control

Em
All that's real is faded, like a car into the night
       C
Like painkiller I take it
And I watch the world ignite
Em
Now the smoke has cleared
And the end is near
It was my illusion.
         C
Like a broken dream I was incomplete
               D        Em
But your love was never the missing piece

Chorus:
                                         Am    C   Em   D 
I feel like I am dreaming again
                                         Am    C   Em   D 
I feel like I am seeing again
                                         Am    C   Em   D 
I feel like I am breathing again
                                 Am    C   
I got it under control
                                 Em   D 
I got it under control
                               Em
I got it under control

You'll never open your eyes

Cause I can’t lose.

Em D X4

Em                         D  C  D 
Wild green stones alone my lover

Em               D
Bite chunks out of me
Em                         D
You’re a shark and I’m swimming
Em                         D
My heart still thumps as I bleed
Em                               D
And all your friends come sniffing

Em                 D
Triangles are my favorite shape
Em                         D
Three points where two lines meet
Em                         D
Toe to toe, back to back, let’s go, my love; it’s very late
C
‘Til morning comes, let’s tessellate


Em                         D  C  D
Go alone my flower

Em    D  C  D x2

Em                 D
Three guns and one goes off
Em                 D
One’s empty, one’s not quick enough
Em                 D
One burn, one red, one grin
Em                 D
Search the graves while the camera spins
Em                 D
Chunks of you will sink down to seals
Em                 D 
Blubber rich in mourning, they’ll nosh you up
Em                 D
Yes, they’ll nosh the love away but it’s fair to say
Em                 D
You will still haunt me

MIDAS TOUCH
(feat. Burns)

C  Am G Em x2

Am                                          G
You say you're going through changes
Em                                           C
Every day it seems your life is up and down
Am                                                 G
And you say that you're looking for an answer
Em                                           C
Everywhere you look it seems you can't be found

Am                                          G
Like searching, trying to find the rainbow
Em                                           C
No one's ever found it, yet it's told to be
Am                                          G
But if you're looking for a lover
Em

C Am Em  (x2)

Am                                          G
Now you've been trapped by love
Em                                           C
Someone takes your heart and then says goodbye
Am                                          G
So you say that you'll never love another
Em                                           C
Tired of playing games and that's the reason why

Am                                          G
But now whenever we're together
Em                                           C
There's a certain feeling, that we both agree
Am                                          G
And it's time that you've opened up to love
Em                                           
Cause if you don't ever try, then baby, you may never see



Chorus:
C   
I've got the Midas touch
Am                                     Em
Everything I touch turns to gold, oh sugar
C   
I've got the Midas touch
Am                                     Em
Baby, let me touch your body and your soul (X2)


Am                                          G
Together you and I we're meant to be
Em                                           C
I'll be right beside whenever you need me
Am                                          G
This love we have will never fade away
Em                                           C
You can count on me cause I'm here to stay, yeah
