Fire Engine Red

	  		
Intro:
C    D 
G    Bm 
C 

C                          D 
 Tryin' to get her to stay home 
                                         G 
 was worst than pulling a sword from the stone 
                              Bm 
 I'm sweating bullets in Palos Verdes 
                         C 
 Please, don't leave me on my own 

C                       D 
 I wanted her to be my wife 
                            G 
 I wanted her to want that life 
                           Bm 
 It ended the same way it started 
                            C 
 Behind the door, holding that knife 


        C          C               Am  
 While I'm happy, I was wrong and mislead 
             C                D           G 
 She took me to your lipstick fire engine red 


C                              D 
 You were brighter than a neon sea 
                            G 
 of signs that say "no vacancy" 
                                    Bm 
 The few brave men you've let check in 
                                    C 
 still brag about the times they've been 

C                         D 
 Over the limit, drunk on wine 
                       G 
 Below the Mason Dixon line 
                              Bm 
 I promised that I'd start to pray 
                                C 
 if the police looked the other way 


      C        C           Am 
 And I didn't go to jail, wind up dead 
               C                   D           G 
 I prayed each night for your lips fire engine red 


          C                               D 
 They said: "You cannot clear a jump that wide 
                         G 
 A stunt like that is suicide" 
                            Bm 
 But when I got the courage to 
                              C 
 I spent the night alone with you 

C                         D 
 I think I'm the luckiest guy 
                          G 
 I used to be too numb to cry 
                               Bm 
 I don't know how I timed this right 
                           C 
 You're just the prettiest sight 


      C          C                  Am 
 In the movies people change when they bled 
           C                     D           G 
 Inside my veins your lipstick's fire engine red 


C                     D 
 I must admit I'm insecure 
                                  G 
 That's what all those women were for 
                        Bm 
 I don't wanna be who I am 
                        C 
 If nobody else gives a damn 

C                            D 
 We've been together 'bout a year 
                                 G 
 I can't say that don't bring me fear 
                               Bm 
 I'm scared to come home every night 
                                  C 
 I'm scared to keep the checkbook tight 


       C         C                    Am 
 Renting movies in your room, in your bed  
               C                    D           G 
 You kissed my cheek, with lipstick fire engine red 


C                            D 
 You always wear the same perfume 
                             G 
 It reminds you of the hotel room 
                            Bm 
 The one in which I swore I knew 
                                      C 
 I'd spent the rest (of) my life with you 

C                                   D 
 But I tell you "you should take it off 
                               G 
 I don't wanna smell like that stuff" 
                               Bm 
 Sometimes my heart it gets so dark 
                            C 
 You sit and watch it fall apart 


    C             C                 Am 
 Run a needle through what's left, tie the thread 
              C                   D           G 
 Don't let me leave your lipstick fire engine red 


C                              D 
 What's two people supposed to do 
                                G 
 When restlessness gets hold of you 
                             Bm 
 I'm drowning in my drinking cup 
                              C 
 I can't, I will not give you up 

C                              D 
 But if flowers never stay and bloom 
                        G 
 I'd do we in a one bed room 
                           Bm 
 We're both victims to our fear 
                            C 
 I'll be a man and hold you near 


    C               C                Am 
 If you leave me, you'll survive in my head 
            C                   D           G 
 I won't forget your lipstick's fire engine red
