Gmaj7 Dmaj7 She takes a breath as he takes his keys F#m7dim5 Gmaj7 F#m7 First name terms is the extent of it Em9 D6 There's no getting out as they're going in Gmaj7 A F#/A# But by tomorrow they both will begin Bm Bm/A To regret and renege on a bond they have struck Gmaj7 A F#/A# A small price to pay and casual luck Bm Bm/A Some lose nothing, some lose a lot Gmaj7 Bm Bm/A A6 But whatever we have is all we have got. D6 Bm9 Gmaj7 G/A [ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/s/style-council/44449.html ] Dsus2 Bm9 He takes her hand and leads to the room Gmaj7 G/A In half light and silence for their clothes to remove Dsus2 Bm9 There's doubt in her mind but hope in her heart Gmaj7 A F#/A# That this last one of many may be the start. Gmaj7 Dmaj7 So they wriggle and writhe for an hour or two F#m7dim5 Gmaj7 F#m7 But time has no place when two are consumed. Em9 D6 They moan and they gasp but they don't really speak Gmaj7 A F#/A# As no conversation could fit this scene. Gmaj7 Dmaj7 F#m7dim5 Gmaj7 F#m7 Em7 (vocal scat) Dmaj7 Em7 G/B F#m/A A#aug G/A Dsus2 Bm9 And tomorrow as always, always comes Gmaj7 G/A As she slips away, He still dumb Dsus2 Bm9 He felt the urge just as she felt the need Gmaj7 A F#/A# Now the need to get out, still carrying his seed, Gmaj7 Dmaj7 Which trickles down her leg and onto her shoe F#m7dim5 Gmaj7 F#m7 Onto the pavement and then out of view Em9 D6 Into the gutter and down into a drain Gmaj7 A6 F#7/A# Joining a river and there to remain Bm Bm/A There's no going back and there's nothing above Gmaj7 A6 F#7/A# It's lust or loneliness that drives us alone Bm Bm/A Gmaj7 A F#/A# Bm Bm/A Gmaj7 Gm6 A6 D It's lust and loneliness, but it's seldom love.
