This is an alteration of the previous version on here, which was great but a few chords 
wrong. This should work better. It's easier to play if you tune down a semitone (see 
at the bottom). Hope you enjoy :-)

Bbm	      Abm
Too sharp to be bled

I'm sitting on my empty bed

On my empty bed

At night the fever grows it's pounding pounding

Watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku

Scary moment, lovin' every moment

I was a kid again

Jesus told me, go after every coin

Like it was the last in the world

I need my Bo peep

I know I need my Shepherd here tonight

And a wondering how things could've been

I’d like to see you

But really I should stay away
   Bbm		Abm
And let you settle down

I've got no claims to your crown
	Bbm
I was the boss of you
	B
And I loved you
        Bbm
You know I loved you

It's all over now

I was there for you
When you were lonely

Now it's my time of need

I’m thinking, do I have to plead to get you by my side?

I'd rather be in Tokyo
