	[Esus4]this to say what's it to you? Ob-
	[F#msus4]serve the blood the rose tatoo of the
	[Aadd2]fingerprints on me from you.
	[E]other evidence has shown that
	[Esus4]you and I are still alone we
	[F#msus4]skirt around the danger zone and don't
	[Aadd2]talk about it later.

	[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)

	[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

	[F#msus4]minded me of the night we kissed and of
	[Aadd2]why I should be leaving.
	[Em7]Marlene watches from the wall
	Cmaj7]her mocking [C6]smile says it all
	[Bm7sus4]as she records the rise and
	[Cmaj7]fall of every <1.man whose been here / 2.soldier passing>
	[Em7]but the only <1.one here / 2.soldier> now is me
	[Cmaj7]I'm fighting things [C6]I cannot 
	[Bm7sus4]see I think it's [Bm7]called my desti-
