Dsus2                 A      Gadd2
Two dozen other dirty lovers
Must be a sucker for it
Cry, but I don't need my mother
Just hold my hand while I come
To a decision on it

Dsus2                 A                  Gadd2
Sooner or later, your legs give way, you hit the ground
Save it for later, don't run away and let me down
Sooner or later, you hit the deck, you get found out
Sooner or later, you run away and run away and let me down

Run away, run away, let me down...

Black air and seven seas all rotten through
But what can you do?
Sometimes I don't know how to get on with all of you lot
Sometimes I don't try, I just now, now, now, now ,now .....

Now, now, now...

Sooner or later, your legs give way, you hit the ground
Save it for later, don't run away, don't let me down
Sooner or later, you hit the deck, you get found out
Save it for later, don't run away, don't run away, don't let me down

Two dozen other stupid reasons
Why we should suffer all this
I can't seem to find a reason
Just hold my hand while I come
To a decision on this

Sooner or later, your legs give way, you hit the ground
Save it for later, don't run away and let me down
Sooner or later, you hit the deck, you get found out
Save it for later, you run away, you run away and let me down

Don't run away, don't run away and let me down...
You run away, you run away, you're lettin' me down...
Why don't you hold me, why don't you hold me and kiss me...
