      D    D*        D              D       D*      D
The wind sways the trees and the raindrops on the leaves
        Bm            G            D      D*     D
Tumble down, down my neck in the breeze
            D  D*    D           D     D*       D
Yes, it's true I hid out in the shadow of your doubt,
          Bm           G                D      D*    D
And this medal that I wear is not for bravery, I'm afraid
 
            A             G        D
And we're both going to have to accept
            A          G          D
That this might be as good as it gets
         A             G      D             Bm   A     G
As our love for each other respects neither rule nor reason

 
       D  D*       D      D                                      D*         D
The Queen on her throne plays Shirley Bassey records when she's all on her own
          Bm       G          D    D*  D
And she looks out the window and cries
  D     D*     D     D                D*   D
What should I do? Scratch off all of my tattoos?
      Bm                  G                D                  D*           D
And forget those girls' names? But you're not about to let me do that, are you?
 
            A             G        D
And we're both going to have to accept
            A          G          D
That this might be as bad as it gets
         A             G       D             Bm   A    G
As our love for each other respects neither rule nor reason

            A            G        D
And we're both going to have to accept
            A          G         D
That this might be as big as it gets
         A             G      D
As our love for each other respects
         Bm  A     G
Neither rule nor reason
         Bm  A     G
Neither rule nor reason

End on D
