You Grew on Me

Capo IV

Intro:   	G  Bm7  C Cmaj7
	        G  D  C x2

G	       Bm7	C
You grew on me like a tumour
G	       Bm7		C
And you spread through me like malignant melanoma
G			C
And now youíre in my heart
G			C
I shouldíve cut you out back at the start

Em	D/F#		C/G
Now Iím afraid thereís no cure for me
Em	D/F#		C/G
No dose of emotional chemotherapy
B			Em
Can halt my pathetic decline
B			Em		F# (F#7 F#6 F#5)
I shouldíve had you removed back when you were benign

I picked you up like a virus
Like meningococcal meningitis
Now I canít feel my legs
When youíre around I canít get out of bed

Iíve left it too late to risk an operation
I know thereís no hope for a clean amputation
The successful removal of you
Would probably kill me too

You grew on me like carcinoma
Crept up on me like untreated glaucoma
C	Cm	G
Now I find it hard to see
C		Cm		G
This untreated dose of you has blinded me

Bridge to Key Change
I shouldíve consulted my local physician
Iím stuck now forever with this tunnel vision
My periphery is screwed
B		Em		F#	G#7
Wherever I look now, all I see is you

F#m			D
When we first met you seemed fickle and shallow
F#m			D
But my armour was no match for your poison arrow
C#			F#m
You are wedged inside my chest
C#			F#m		G#
If I tried to take you out now I might bleed to death
G#			G#7 G#6 G#5
Iím feeling short of breath

A			D
You grew on me like a tumour
A		D		A
And you spread through me like malignant melanoma
D	Dm6		A
I guess I never knew
D	Dm6		A
How fast a little mole can grow on you
