Lethal Temptress

	  		

    A 
Oh I bled on the bed 
      D 
from a wound in my head 
      A              E 
on the night before I sent this 
A 
welling with dread 
        D   
from the things that were said 
      A                         E 
in the boardroom that left me defenseless. 

    Bm 
And though you weren't there 
        A 
I could still feel you stare 
                                E  
and your voice it rang cold and contemptuous. 
   A                 
So forgive me this morning 
  D   
if I should fall worn 
       A           E      A 
in the arms of the lethal temptress. 

     A       
At a nightclub engagement  
    D 
you sang on the stage 
     A                         E 
in a voice that was broken and tuneless; 
           A 
still it's better to work 
        D 
than to beg like a jerk 
        A                           E 
for the kinds of things we all find useless. 
  
    Bm 
And Hell hath no fury 
    A 
and dear I'm not worried. 
                         E 
I will see to my eternal penance. 
         A 
Just one more glass of gin 
       D 
before I crawl back in 
       A           E      A 
to the arms of the lethal temptress. 

        A 
So you frighten the ghost town 
    D 
and ground them all down, 
     A                    E 
til one day you'd reach a consensus. 
      A 
And I know from your verse 
        D 
you put America the first 
        A                      E 
and all others you simply beat senseless. 

       Bm 
And to worship like this 
      A 
is to honour the fist 
                                 E   
and to conjure what's cruel and licentious. 
      A  
And I don't know what's fair  
      D 
and I really don't care 
       A            E     A   
in the arms of the lethal temptress. 

      A 
And I won't place a bet 
       D 
but I knew when we met 
      A                      E 
that one day we'd come to regret this. 
         A                           D 
And that what once was love can turn quickly enough 
      A                        E 
into something so hard and contemptuous. 

    Bm 
And Hell hath no fury 
     A 
and Death is no jury 
                             E 
our love's ended before I commence this 
         A  
but for one final sin 
          D  
you won't see me again 
       A           E       A   
in the arms of the lethal temptress. 

         A  
But for one final sin 
          D  
you won't see me again 
       A           E       A   
in the arms of the lethal temptress.
