An out-and-out rocker from two brilliant guitarists. After seeing a
live/documentary video of the song live, I noticed a drawn out intro
(see intro fig 1) a là Astronomy Domine. Play it w/heavy palm muting,
crecendo for a dramatic effect. The intro drum fill will cue you to
start in.

(w/rhy fig 1)
It takes a fool to phone a fool
When both have said it all
We make the rule, bemoan the rule
That neither one should call
 
(w/chs fig 1)
But love that was
Is love that is
Demands to always be unchanged
But then all lovers are deranged.
 
(w/rhy fig 1)
We walk away with memories
And clutch them to our hearts
We're disembodied entities
We move in fits and starts

(w/chs fig 1) 
For burning wine
Intoxicates,
And takes all caution in its flames
All lovers are deranged.
 
(w/bridge fig 1)
You know that you don't really fall in love
Unles you're seventeen
The break of day will make your spirits fly
But you can't know what it means
Unless you're seventeen.

(solo)
Solo Chd progression--B5 D5 A5 C5 B5
 
(w/rhy fig 1)
It takes a fight to start a fight
And differences remain
We have the right to think we're right
We're addicts feigning shame
 
(w/chs fig 1)
For love recalled
Is love reborn
We're determined to relive the pain
But then all lovers are deranged
