intro: E Abm A Am

E Abm A AmYour bicycle's chained to the fence outside
E Abm A Am There's plenty of offers, but you won't ride
E A C# A How you pedal in those is a miracle, miracle
E AbmAnd you laugh at yourself as you speed
A F#Through the red lights
D AOh, Berlin
D ANobody knows where you've been
E Abm A Am In the space where your brain and your heart collide
E Abm A Am You're convinced there's a practical place that you can hide
E A And you laugh at the bellhop
C# AHysterical, hysterical
E Abm A F# With your bag full of dresses and butcher's knives
D AOh, Berlin
D ANobody knows where you've been
C#m But they all look so ugly and mean when you're sober
AYou've auctioned away all your crimson and clover
F#When Ronnie leaves lines out and lights up the curtain
AmYou know what you're doing, you know it for certain
C#mThe last thing I saw, they were reading your rights
AIf you're gonna go down, then you're going down fighting
F#As long as you're bent
And as long as they're watching
AmYou're gonna make rent
F# E AYou got no other option
C#mWhat?
A F# F#mDid you think you were worth my while?
C#m A F# Did you think I would cramp my style?
C#m A F#That if I had a say in it
C#m A E AThat I'd sit here and bite my lip and listen
C#mWhat? (What?)
A F# F#m Do you think that I come off bored?
C#m A F# Paid a fortune to be ignored?
C#m A F#Did you think that I come here out
C#m A F#of the goodness of my own heart
A F# A To work on an assembly line of broken hearts?
F# A F# ANot supposed to fix them, only strip and sell the parts
C#m A F# C#m A F#Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh oh oh
(same as before) It’s hard to work On an assembly line of broken hearts Not supposed to fix them, only strip and sell the parts (same as intro) Your bicycle's chained to the fence outside There's plenty of offers, but you won't ride How you pedal in those is a miracle A miracle And you laugh at yourself As you speed through the red lights
