Turn On Me
Turn On Me C You can fake it for a while, Bite your tongue and smile, G Like every mother does an ugly child. C But the stars are leaking out, Like spittle from a cloud, G Amassed resentment counting ounce and pound. F You're entertaining any doubt, C G Because you had to know that I was fond of you, C F Fond of Y-O-U, C G Though I knew you masked your disdain. F C G I can see that change was just too hard for us, C F Hard for us. You always had to hold the reigns, F F F F F F F F G But where I'm headed, you just don't know the way. C So affections fade away, And do adults just learn to play G The most ridiculous, repulsive games? C On the faith of ruddy sons, And the double-barreled guns, You better hurry, G Rabbit, run, run, run. C 'Cause meeting you was fun, G And there's a lot of hungry howlers in this one cell. We're taking it over, C Their brittle, thorny stems, They break before they bend, G And neither one of us is one of them. F And the tails will never mend, C G Cause you had it in for me so long ago. C F Boy, I still don't know, C G I don't know why and I don't care, C F You don't hide me anymore, C G If you'd only seen yourself hating me. C F Hating me, C G When I've been so much more than fair. F F F F F F F F G But then you had to lay those feelings bare, F F F F F F F F G One thing I know still got you scared, F G You're all that cold iron, F C G And never once aired of our dead. INSTRUMENTAL (C-G-C-G F C G You had to know that I was fond of you, C F Fond of Y-O-U. C G So I took your lips at the time, C F AHHHHHHHHHH C G And to change like that is just so hard to do, C F Hard to do. C G Don't let it whip-crack your life, F F F F F F F F G And bow out from the fight, F F F F F F G Cause oh, how your sisters will write. F F F F F The worst part is over, C C C F F F G Now, get back on that horse and ride.
