Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – Hold On To Yourself chords


F - Dm - Am

AmI'm so far away from you
FPacing up and down my room
Dm AmDoes Jesus only love a man who loses?
AmI turn on the radio
F There's some cat on the saxophone
Dm AmLaying down a litany of excuses
AmThere's madhouse longing in my baby's eyes
FShe rubs the lamp between her thighs
Dm AmAnd hopes the genie comes out singing
AmShe lives in some forgotten song
F And moves like she is zombie-strong
Dm AmBreathes steady as the pendulum keeps swinging
C - G - Am
Am F AmYou better hold on to yourself
Am F - Dm - Am
AmWell, cities rust and fall to ruin
F Factories close and cars go cruisin'
Dm AmIn around the borders of her vision
AmShe says ooh
FAs Jesus makes the flowers grow
Dm AmAll around the scene of her collision
C G AmYou know I would, yes, I would
Am F AmI would hold on to yourself
Am F - Dm - Am In the middle of the night I try my best to chase outside The phantoms and the ghosts and fairy-girls On 1001 nights like these She mutters open sesame and Ali Baba and his forty thieves Launch her off the face of the world You know one day I'll come back and I'd hold on to yourself To yourself, I'd hold on to yourself Ooh baby, I'm a 1000 miles away And I just don't know what to say Cause Jesus only loves a man who bruises But darling, we can clearly see It's all life and fire and lunacy And excuses and excuses and excuses Well, you know if I could, I would I'd lie right down and I'd hold on to yourself Yeah, I would lie right down and I would hold on to yourself One day I'll come back to you and I'd hold on to yourself Yeah, I'm gonna come back, gonna lie down And I would hold on to yourself Yeah, to yourself
