Am G C

[verse 1]
Am             G               C
I was scared of dentists and the dark
Am             G               C
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
    Am        G              C
Oh, all my friends are turning green
           Am         G                C
You're the magician's assistant in their dreams

Lady, running down to the riptide, taken away
       Am        G              C
To the dark side, I wanna be your left hand man
  Am      G                       C
I love you when you're singing that song, and I got a lump
      Am            G                      C
In my throat, 'cause you're gonna sing the words wrong

[verse 2]
Am                G                  C
There's this movie that I think you'll like
     Am            G               C
This guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City
     Am      G           C
This cowboy's running from himself
    Am               G               C
And she's been living on the highest shelf

[pre-chorus]
Am  G   C
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Am  G            C
Ooh, ooh, and they come unstuck

[chorus]
Am   G                  C
Lady, running down to the riptide, taken away
       Am        G              C
To the dark side, I wanna be your left hand man
  Am      G                       C
I love you when you're singing that song, and I got a lump

In my throat, 'cause you're gonna sing the words wrong

I just wanna, I just wanna know
C                                 Fmaj7
If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay
Am                            G
I just gotta, I just gotta know
C                               Fmaj7
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way

[pre-chorus]
  Am         G               C
I swear she's destined for the screen
Am              G                C
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh
