Breathe in for luck breathe in so deep this air is blessed you share with me this
am f g
night is wild so calm and dull these hearts they race
c am
from self control your legs are smooth
f g
as they graze mine we're doing fine we're doing nothing at all.

c am
My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me.
f g
So won't you kill me, so I die happy.
c g am
g
My heart is yours to fill or burst or break or bury or wear as jewelery,
c
which ever you prefer.
c am
The words are hushed lets not get busted,
f g
just lay entwined here undiscovered.
c am
Safe from the earth and all the stupid questions..
f g
"hey did you get some?" Man, that is so dumb.
c am f

Stay quiet, stay near, stay close they can't hear, so we can get some.

c f c
Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember,
g am
I'll always remember the sound of the stereo,
f
the dim of the soft lights,
c g
the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers and
am f
the time on the clock when we realized
c g
it's so late and the walk that we shared together.
am f
The street was wet and the gate was locked
c g am
so I jumped it and let you in and you stood at the door
f c
with your hands on my waist and you kissed me,
g am f
but you meant it and I knew that you meant it,
c g
that you meant it, that you meant it,
am f c
and I knew, that you meant it, that you meant it.
