Em                      D
You used to be on fire, now you chill me to the bone
   Am                                 Em
We used to fly like angels, now we're sinking like a stone
    Em                                    D
You say you're trying to help me but that ain't the way it feels
  Am                                  Em
I think you're trying to kill me with those stiletto heels

Em (w/riff b)
Paint the town black babe and let that pendulum swing
Em
I been stabbed in the back babe
Em
And if you don't love me, I'll never feel a thing
    B5              C5            D5                            Em5      
And oh, one thing I know, there's only one place left for me to go

Chorus:
      A5      B5             D5  Em5           A5         B5            D5   Em5
Going back to the kingdom of desire,    going down to the valley of the gun
          A5        B5           D5  Em5                  A5      G  D/F#      D5   Em5
I'm gonna stand too close to the fire,          I'm gonna fly too close to the sun

Riff a X 4

Em                               D
They say the king of love sleeps on a velvet bed
    Am                                 Em
My sheets feel like sandpaper, and my pillow feels like lead
Em                      D
But as sure as Atlantis sank into the sea
    Am                                Em
I'm sinking like a stone babe, that's how it's got to be

Em (w/Riff b)
Paint the town black babe and let that pendulum swing
Em
I been stabbed in the back babe
Em
And if you don't love me, I'll never feel a thing

    B5                  C5           D5                            Em5    
And oh, if I don't have you, there's only one thing left for me to do

Chorus: Going back to the...

Solo:

         Em                            D
When you dig up God's little acre, you lose all peace of mind
    Am                       Em
You stare into the distance, looking for a sign
         Em                             D 
But that sign it never comes babe, your wishes won't come true
         Am                             Em
You keep praying for the rain while the sun beats down on you
 
    B5              C5            D5                            Em5    
And oh, one thing I know, there's only one place left for me to go

Chorus (2x): Going back to the...

I'm gonna fly too close to the sun, yeah
I'm gonna fly too close to the sun
