Intro: 
G# 
 
G# 
I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress 
                                                D# 
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand 
          G# 
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress 
                                     D# 
With my father in a casket, I had no plans 
 
G#                                  C#              G# 
And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet 
                                                D# 
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town 
      G#                           C#                G#     
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant 
                                                      D# 
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around 
 
          G#        D#     C#        G#     C#            G#          D# 
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life 
           G#   D#             C#   G#             C#        G#     D# 
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time 
 
          G#                       C#                       G# 
While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me 
                                             D# 
Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true 
     G#                     C#       G# 
So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me 
         C#               G#                        D#  
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you 
 
        Fm                 G#           C#     D#     Fm 
And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce 
         G#                        Fm            C#        D#      G# 
But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part 
 
      G#                C#               G# 
I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters 
                                              D# 
But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind 
      G#                    C#                   G#     
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom 
       C#         G# 
It's a bed and a bathroom 
                    D# 
And a place for the end 
 
            G#       D#     C#        G#     C#            G#          D#    
I won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life 
           G#   D#             C#   G#             C#        G#     D# 
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time
