I'm A Scorpion In The Night

	  		               I'm A Scorpion In The Night 
             By: 18 Hertz (Darrell Gilliard) 

This song is played with some ride cybal crashes  
morocca's and the rhythm guitar going from Am to F.  
Listen to the song on Garageband.com under band name  
18 Hertz and you will get a feel for the strumming 
patterns and the weirdness of the songs feel.  
This song uses a dreamy shimmer guitar effect. 

Opening Riff: 

Am 
F 

Verse 1 

Am           I'm a scorpion in the night                 
F            Waiting here for you  
Am           I'll say anything           
F            That you want me too 



Verse 2 

Am           Come a little bit closer                 
F            Let me show you what I have 
Am           Sometimes love can sting you           
F            But its really not that bad 


There is a little melodic guitar riff that plays 
over and over throughout the rhythm guitar parts: 


E-------9----7---6---5---3------------9----7---5----3------------ 

B---------------------------------------------------------------- 

G---------------------------------------------------------------- 

Verse 3 

Am           I can inject my venom                 
F            If you really want me too 
Am           Just as long as you remember          
F            I need lovin too 

Chorus 

Am           Did I disappoint you 
F            Have I made you sad 
Am           Sometimes love is poison 
F            But it's really not that bad 

* The Chorus then goes to half time notes and speed 

Am           Of course I love you 
F            Can't we just begin 
Am           Let me inject you 
F            My love won't sting 

Am           Did I disappoint you 
F            Have I made you sad 
Am           Sometimes love is poison 
F            But it's really not that bad 

Outro: 

Am           Come a little bit closer                 
F            Let me show you what I have 
Am           Sometimes love can sting you           
F            But its really not that bad 

Am           Its really not that bad                
F            Its really not that bad 
Am           Its really not that bad           
F            Its really not that bad 

             Of course I love you 
             Can't we just begin 

Am           Did I disappoint you 
F            Have I made you sad 
Am           Sometimes love is poison 
F            But it's really not that bad 

Am           Its really not that bad                 
F            Its really not that bad (to fade out)
