Am    C     F      G
Am    C     F      G

Am             C        F       G
Lucy takes the long way home
Am            C        F        G
meets me in a field of stone
Am                            C           F      G
she says I don't know how I'm supposed to feel
Am                          C       F      G
my body's cold, my guts are twisted steel.

Am              C                F       C
And I feel like I'm some kind of frankenstein,
Am            C                 F       C
waiting for a shock to bring me back to life,
Am                  C        F      
but I don't want to spend my time
Am          C            F        F  
waiting for lightning to strike.  Ohhh...

Am    C     F      G
Am    C     F      G

Am              C        F     G
So underneath a concrete sky
Am            C       F      G
Lucy puts her hand in mine
Am                            C        F      G
She says "Life's a game we're meant to lose,
Am                         C        F       G
But stick by me and I will stick by you."


Am               C             F      C
Cause I'm like a princess in a castle high,
Am            C                F       C
waiting for a kiss to bring me back to life,
Am                  C        F       
but I don't want to spend my time
Am          C            F      F 
waiting for just another guy.   Ohh....

Am    C     F      G
Am    C     F      G     C
