Blue Alert

Written by Leonard Cohen/Anjani Thomas

	  		(intro) Am  Am7M  Am7  Am7M 

Am               Am7M 
There's perfume burning in the air 
Am7                   Am6 
Bits of beauty everywhere 
Bě                E7              Am7   ( Bm7(b5)  E7 ) 
Shrapnel flying, soldier hit the dirt 
Am                      Am7M           Am7 
She comes so close you feel her then 
              Am6 
She tells you no and no again 
Bm7(b5)                 E7 
Your lip is cut on the edge 
                 D7     E7 
Of her pleated skirt 

      Am    Am7M   Am7   Am7M 
Blue Alert 
Am              Am7M 
Visions of her drawing near 
Am7                     Am6 
Arise, abide, and disappear 
Bm7(b5)                E7              Am7  ( Bm7(b5)  E7 ) 
You try to slow it down it doesn't work 
Am                 Am7M 
It's just another night I guess 
Am7                Am6 
All tangled up in nakedness 
Bm7(b5)           E7                      D7 
You even touch yourself  you're such a flirt 
( Bm7(b5)  E7 )       Am7     Am7M 
        Blue Alert 

Dm7           E7                Am7 
You know how nights like this begin 
                       D7 
The kind of knot your heart gets in 
Dm7          E7               Am7     D7 
Any way you turn is going to hurt 

Dm7              E7 
There's perfume burning in the air 
Am7             D7 
Bits of beauty everywhere 
Dm7               E7              D7       E7 
Shrapnel flying, soldier hit the dirt 
       Am     Am7M    Am7    Am7M 
Blue Alert 

Am              Am7M                 Am7 
She breaks the rules so you can see 
              Am6 
She's wilder than you'll ever be 
Bě         E7             Am7           E7 
You talk religion but she won't convert 

Am                Am7M 
Her body's twenty stories high 
Am7               Am6 
You try to look away, you try 
Bě                  E7              D7      E7 
But all you want to do is get there first 
       Am     Am7M 
Blue Alert
