Verse 1
Bm GI work in the dead of night, when the roads are quiet...
Bm AAnd no one is around, to track my moves
Bm GRacing the yellow lights, to find the gate is open...
Bm AShe's waiting in the room, I just step on through
Bm G BmWoah, oah... You get in, you get done and then you gone
GBmYou never leave a trace, or show your face, you get gone

G BmShould've turned around and left before the sun came up again

A But the sun came up again

Bm - G - Bm - A Verse 2
Bm G BmEnter the morning light, to find the day is burning the curtains and the wine
In a little white room
Bm G Bm
Though I'm not alone, her head is heavy on me, she's sleeping like a child

AWhat could I do
Play Pre-Chorus Again Chorus
Bm G* A*
 I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
Bm G* A*
 I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
Bm G* A*
 I'm an assassin and I had a job to do
Bm G* A*
 Little did I know that girl was an assassin too

Bm G Bm A
 Suddenly I'm in over my head and I can hardly breathe
Bm G Bm A Suddenly I'm floating over her bed and I feel everything
Bm G Bm A
 Suddenly I know exactly what I did, but I can’t move a thing
Bm G Bm And suddenly I know exactly what I've done,
Aand what it's gonna mean to me, mean to me

Bm G Bm AI'm gooooooooone, I'm gooooooooone, I'm gooooooooone...
Play Chorus Again

Bm G* A*

She's an assassin and she had a job to do
