trembling in this tableau vivant what are you wearing that mask for?
you think i don't know what i want i just don't know what to ask for

Bm           C            Bm           C         C/B   Am
do i even have to say it? do i need to breathe a wooooooord?

G         Bm          F     C
just hold me like you mean it
G    Bm            F   C
hold me like you mean it
G        Bm      F        C         D
hold me in that way and i'll be cured

all the work i do to hurt you it's just to prove i'm still present
think of all the things i don't do i think you'll find more pleasant

every time you see me shaking you can settle what you've stirred

just hold me like you mean it
hold me like you mean it
hold me in that way and i'll be cured

G              Em      Bb            C
wouldn't even take a touch with the lips
wouldn't even take a touch with the lips
wouldn't even take a touch with the lips
Am                C              D
you wouldn't take much to this point

you said me a task's so taxing draw a poll list of your talents
you were wailing i was waxing why can't we get back in ???????

when your grip is not relaxing that's when i feel reassured

just hold me like you mean it
hold me like you mean it
hold me in that way and i'll be cured

wouldn't even take a touch with the lips
wouldn't even take a touch with the lips
wouldn't even take a touch with the lips

you wouldn't take much to this point
no you  wouldn't take much to this point
no you wouldn't take much to this point
