[Verse 1]
Dm
The night's like a whirlwind
                               Am
Somebody's girlfriend is talking to me
                                                   Dm
But it's alright , she's saying that he's not that he's gonna slap me
                          Am
Or try to attack me, he's not the jealous type
Dm                             Am
And I only need to get half an excuse and I'm away,
Dm                                 Am
But when there's no excuses that's much easier to say,

[Bridge]
              Dm                      Am
I've been before and all these capers makers to the floor
            Dm                            Am
Then to ignore, she's talking but I'm not entirely sure

[Verse 2]
(guitar 1 plays only this chord in this part)
Dm 
Somebody's partner is talking to me
But I don't that is what she isn't
She murmurs things to confirm the tragedy is true
And I knew how could she not she could have anyone she wants
And I'm struggling to think of an immediate response

(Guitar 2 plays this from the fourth verse)

Like I don't mind
                 Am                                    Dm
Be a big mistake for you to wait and help me waste your time
                   Am
Really love it's fine, said really love it's fine

[Last Chorus]
           Em                                    Bm
And the first time it occurred that there was something to destroy
Am                           G              F#
I knew before the invitation that there was this ploy
        Em                        Bm
Oh but she carried on suggesting I struggled to refuse
    Am
She said it's the red wine this time
    G               F#     Em
But that is no excuse
