Verse: E (with main riff played by organ, guitar 1 enters with chords) Come on in baby, guess you want to touch me now You want to put your hands on my face, and Tell me you love me, tell me you need me Don't say that you love me Don't say anything, 'cause A I am not that kind of man I'm much less than you think I am (Back to main riff)

So many people are just like Jesus, They drag all this weight to get to anything better than Where they've been, or where they are Well tell me what the hell's the reason when we're never getting anywhere, but A You want me to say "Hey, it's OK." But I'm so dizzy, baby, just get the hell away from me Chorus: E B A * (guitar 2 plays fill 1) How can you breathe? E B A How can you see? E B A E *(guitar 2 plays fill 2) I can't even sleep when you're with me

Verse: (organ and guitar 2 play simile to first verse) I'm sick of summertime, I know all of the best things in life are unkind I could be everything, I could be anything, but All the time I think that if I only had a pair if wings... But you won't touch me Just take your hands off me, don't touch me baby I can't receive it, you see... How can you see? How can you breathe? I can't feel a thing when you're with me Bridge: Organ HTTP/1.0 400 Cache Detected Error Server: squid/1.1.10-nf/2.0.4 Date: Thu, 03 Aug 2000 13:59:15 GMT Expires: Thu, 03 Aug 2000 14:01:15 GMT Last-Modified: Thu, 03 Aug 2000 13:59:15 GMT Content-Type: text/html Content-Length: 1668 CleanWeb: Site Blocked >">'>">'>
