[E]Even if I am in love with you all
[Esus4]this to say what's it to you? Ob-

[F#msus4]skirt around the danger zone and don't
[Aadd2]talk about it later.

CHORUS
[Em7]Marlene watches from the walls
[Cmaj7]her mocking [C6]smile says it all
[Bm7sus4]as she records[Bm7] the rise and
[Cmaj7]fall of every soldier passing
[Em7]but the only soldier now is me
[Cmaj7]I'm fighting things[C6] I cannot
[Bm7sus4]see. I think its [Bm7]called my desti-
[G/C]ny but [D/C]I [G/C]am [Cmaj9]changing
[D] Marlene on the wall
[Cmaj7] | [D] | [Cmaj7]   (Well I)

2.
[E]Walk to your house in the afternoon by the
[Esus4]butcher shop with the saw-dust strewn
[F#msus4]"don't give away the goods too soon" is
[Aadd2]what you might have told me and I
[E]tried so hard to resist when you
[Esus4]held me in your handsome fist and re
[F#msus4]minded me of the night we kissed and of
[Aadd2]why I should be leaving
