[Verse 1]
C             G/B               F
Just a minute before you leave, girl,
C       G/B                         F
Just a minute before you touch the door.
C     G/B                            F
What is it that you're trying to achieve, girl?
C       G/B                             F
Do you think we can talk about it some more?
             Dm                        Am
You know, the streets are filled with vipers
    Dm                  Am
Who've lost all ray of hope,
C/G
You know, it ain't even safe no more
         G
In the palace of the Pope.
C          G/B           F
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
C            G/B                F
I just don't think that I could handle it.

Don't fall apart on me tonight,

Yesterday's just a memory,

Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be
      G           F/G
And I need you, yeah.

C             G/B               F
Come over here from over there, girl,
C             G/B               F
Sit down here. You can have my chair.
C             G/B               F
I can't see us goin' anywhere, girl.
 C                               G/B                          F
The only place open is a thousand miles away and I can't take you there.
    Dm                  Am
I wish I'd have been a doctor,
    Dm                                 Am
Maybe I'd have saved some life that had been lost,
C/G
Maybe I'd have done some good in the world
              G
'Stead of burning every bridge I crossed.
C          G/B           F
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
C                  G/B           F
I just don't think that I could handle it.
C          G/B           F
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
Dm                 Em
Yesterday's just a memory,
  F                            C/G
Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be
      G           F/G
And I need you, oh, yeah.


[Verse 3]

C             G/B               F
I ain't too good at conversation, girl,
C             G/B                   F
So you might not know exactly how I feel,
C                     G/B                      F
But if I could, I'd bring you to the mountaintop, girl,
C                     G/B                   F
And build you a house made out of stainless steel.
    Dm                           Am
But it's like I'm stuck inside a painting
    Dm                  Am
That's hanging in the Louvre,
C/G
My throat start to tickle and my nose itches
            G
But I know that I can't move.
C          G/B           F
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
C                   G/B           F
I just don't think that I could handle it.
C          G/B           F
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
Dm                         Em
Yesterday's gone but the past lives on,
  F                      C/G
Tomorrow's just one step beyond
      G           F/G
And I need you, oh, yeah.

[Bridge]
Bb                           F
Who are these people who are walking towards you?
                                    C
Do you know them or will there be a fight?
           Bb                  F
With their humorless smiles so easy to see through,
                                           C
Can they tell you what's wrong from what's right?
F               C
Do you remember St. James Street
F                          C
Where you blew Jackie P.'s mind?
            F                            C
You were so fine, Clark Gable would have fell at your feet
    Bb       F           G11    G
And laid his life on the line.

[Verse 4]

C                   G/B                F
Let's try to get beneath the surface waste, girl,
C                        G/B                        F
No more booby traps and bombs, No more decadence and charm,
C                G/B               F
No more affection that's misplaced, girl, 
C                   G/B               F
No more mudcake creatures lying in your arms.
    Dm                                        Am
What about that millionaire with the drumsticks in his pants?
    Dm                       Am
He looked so baffled and so bewildered
C/G
When he played and we didn't dance.
C          G/B           F
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
C                   G/B           F
I just don't think that I could handle it.
C          G/B           F
Don't fall apart on me tonight,
Dm                 Em
Yesterday's just a memory,
  F                            C/G
Tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be
      G        F/G
And I need you, yeah.
