 "Closer" by CAUTERIZE


Intro:   Em  |  C  |  G  |  D   (x2)


Verse 1:
 Em C 
  What started out as desire 
 G D 
turned into a lover's tryst
 Em C 
  Who knew a moth and a flame
       G D 
could ever spawn a love like this
 Em C 
   Now you need something
           G 
To taste something just
   D Em 
a little bit more sweet
          C G 
But I am sour and more sour 
       D 
every time that our lips meet


Refrain:
 C D 
  If you're a butterfly
             Em 
I'm suicide by insecticide
 C D 
  If I am kerosene then you're
         Em 
a spark just begging to ignite
 C D Em 
  You'll wish you never met me
 C D 
  Butterfly butterfly float on by me


Chorus:
 Em C G 
  Never meant to cut so deep
 D Em 
Just enough to bleed
           C 
Feel the sting as 
         G 
you get closer
 D 
Closer and closer to me
 Em C 
  Don’t let me hold
              G 
something so delicate
      D 
I'll shatter it with a word
 Em C 
   Don't say a thing as we 
     G 
get closer and closer
 D 
Damn this is gonna hurt


Verse 2:
 Em C 
  The ghost of pathetic past is
 G D 
haunting me here more and more
 Em C G 
  Skeletons are laughing at 
                D 
me through the closet door
 Em 
  And now past lovers 
 C G 
share these covers
          D Em 
Sleeping with my enemies
             C 
Thoughts of others 
         G 
come between us
         D 
Trigger fits of jealousy


(Repeat Refrain and Chorus)


Interlude:  Fm  |  G/B  |  C  |  D 


Bridge:
 Am G/B C 
  You can paint me pretty colours
     D Am 
And dress me how you like
             G/B C 
I'm just an ugly moth in love
      D Am 
In a butterfly disguise
                          G/B 
I've been thinking about leaving
since the day that we met
 C 
  If I don't get close when 
      D 
it's all over I'll just forget
 Am 
  Cause I have seen the end
    G/B 
So many times I've 
played it in my mind
 C 
  And I am scared to death
   D 
I never wanna see your dark side


(Repeat Refrain and Chorus)
