[intro]

    E           E           E              E
I'm harboring a fugitive, a defector of a kind
        A(9)        A(9)      A(9)         A(9)
And she lives in my soul, and drinks of my wine
        E            E     E        E        A(9)  A(9)  A(9)  A(9)
And I'd give my last breath just to keep us alive

Are they coming for us with cameras or guns?
We don't know which, but we gotta run
And you say, "this is not what I bargained for"

   E    E   E  E    A(9)  A(9)  A(9)  A(9)
So hide yourself for me
   [similar to intro here...]
All for me

We swore to ourselves we'd go to the end of the world
But I got caught up in the whirl, the twirl of it all
A day in the sun, dancing alone, baby I'm so sorry

Now it's coming to you; the lessons I've learned
Won't do you any good, you've got to get burned
Well the curse and the blessing, they're one and the same
Baby it's all such a treacherous game

Hide yourself for me
I said hide yourself for me
All for me

Ooooohhhhhhh [instrumental]

I stood without clothes, danced in the sand
I was aching with freedom, and kissing the damned
I said, "remember this is how it should be"

Baby, I said, it's all in our hands
Got to learn to respect what we don't understand
We are fortunate ones, fortunate ones I swear

Hide yourself for me
I will hide myself for you, ohhh
I will hide myself for you, ah ahahh
I will hide myself for you, all for you [tacet]

I stood without clothes, danced in the sand
I was aching with freedom, and kissing the damned
I said, "Remember this is how it should be"
