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.
