       Dm        Dm        Gm        C7  

   F         A7                Dm 
I needed you, I knew I was in danger 
    F            A7                 Dm 
Of losing what I used to think was mine 
Bb          F      Bb             F 
You let me love you till I was a failure 
Bb          F      Bb             F 
You let me love you till I was a failure 
    A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
Your beauty on my bruise like iodine 

  F               A7                  Dm 
I asked you if a man could be forgiven 
   F                    A7                 Dm 
And though I failed at love, was this a crime? 
Bb                  F   Bb               F 
You said, Don't worry, don't worry, darling 
Bb                F     Bb                F 
You said, Don't worry, don't you worry, darling 
    A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
There are many ways a man can serve his time 

    F               A7                     Dm 
You covered up that place I could not master 
  D               A7                 Dm 
It wasn't dark enough to shut my eyes 
Bb             F    Bb              F 
So I was with you, O sweet compassion 
Bb             F     Bb              F 
Yes I was with you, O sweet compassion 
    A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
Compassion with the sting of iodine 
    A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
Your saintly kisses reeked of iodine 
    A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
Your fragrance with a fume of iodine 
    A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
And pity in the room like iodine 
      A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
Your sister fingers burned like iodine 
    A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
And all my wanton lust was iodine 
    A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
My masquerade of trust was iodine 
    A                     Dm  C#  C  B     Gm F#  F E 
And everywhere the flare of iodine
