Breathe in for luck, breathe in so deep
Bb Bb Db Db Eb Eb
This air is blessed, you share with me
Eb Eb Cm Cm Ab Ab
This night is wild, so calm and dull
Bb Bb Db Db Eb Eb
These hearts they race from self control

Your legs are smooth, as they graze mine
Bb Bb
We're doing fine, we're doing nothing at

kill me

So won't you kill me

Eb Eb Cm Cm Ab Ab Bb Bb Db Db Eb Eb

The words are hushed, lets not get busted
Just lay entwined here
Safe and near from all the stupid questions
Hey did you get some?
Man that is so dumb
Stay quiet, stay near, stay close they can't here
So we can get some


Cm Cm Ab Ab
Hands down this is the best day
Eb Eb
I can ever remember
Bb Bb
Always remember
Cm Cm Ab Ab
The sound of your stereo, the dim of the soft lights
Eb Eb Bb Bb
The scent of your hair, that you twirl in your fingers
Cm Cm Ab Ab
And the time on the clock, when we realized it's so late
Eb Eb Bb Bb
And this walk that we shared, together
Cm Cm Ab Ab
The streets were wet and the gate was locked
Eb Eb Bb Bb
So I jumped it, and I let you in
Cm Cm Ab Ab
And you stood at your door with your hands on my waist
Eb Eb Bb Bb
And you kissed me like you meant it
Cm Cm Ab Ab
And I knew, that you meant it
Eb Eb Bb Bb
That you meant it, that you meant it
Cm Cm Ab Ab
And I knew, that you meant it,
Eb Eb
That you meant it
