Am(v)|                 |Fmaj7/A     |
You,  you're wasting my time
|Dsus2/A             |Am(v)           
  We're making music, we're doing fine
      |Fmaj7/A                  |G6/A                |Am(viii)
Then a slap in the face takes me back to the starting line
   |  Am(v)            |Fmaj7/A     |
You,  you're wasting my life
|Dsus2/A                     |Am(v)        
  You can't lose what you've already lost
|Fmaj7/A                     |G6/A             
  Your arms are open but your legs are crossed 

|Am   Am|G     Am| C         D           |      Am  Am 
 Save me, save me, I'm going down for the third time
|Am   Am|G     Am| C        D          |     Am  Am
 Save me, save me, Somebody throw me my next line 

|A      |          E  D   |A                  |E D    
 Too hot for me to handle, so cold I'm getting nowhere
|A              |       E    D   |A                |E    D    |
 Pinch me to see if I'm sleeping, maybe it's only a nightmare 

You, why did it have to be you?
Of all those girls I had to choose, you win and I lose
You, you with the poisonous eyes
One look and I'm hooked, one touch and my goose is cooked 

Save me, save me, I'm going down for the third time
Save me, save me, somebody throw me a lifeline 

Too late to change partners, too late, you got no chance
Too late to change partners, too late to say I don't dance 

[interlude; repeat verse intro]

You, there's a name for girls like you
You lead me on like a lamb to the slaughter
Then you act like a fish out of water
You, there's a name for girls like you
You're coming on like a steam train
Then you blow me away just like a hurricane 

Save me, save me, I'm going down for the last time
Save me, save me, somebody throw me a lifeline
Save me, I'm falling from the top of the page to the next line
Save me, I'm burning from the tip of my toes to my hairline 

Too hot for me to handle, so cold I'm getting nowhere
Pinch me to see if I'm sleeping, maybe it's only a nightmare

[repeat intro; verse intro, fade]
