BLAMELESS BLUE (Verse 1) C C/B Be careful what you’re thinking today – Be careful with your feelings Please don’t go stealing again – But give me what I’m needing You must give in today – No point in fighting You think it’s all a game – You can’t get away! (Bridge) A B F - A B C And your name was written bright in the stars that shone last night As the morning clouds depart I will reach into your heart And falling to the floor our bodies pressed against the door So the time at last is here to make my intentions clear… (Chorus) A G C B You will lay perfectly still as I slide over you Oh! What a thrill - The sky is blameless blue You will lay perfectly still as I slide over you Moving in for the kill - It’s the least I can do… (Verse 2) C C/B Oh! What a beautiful day – Just as the sun is sinking Why so low? Why so down? – Try positive thinking You say it can’t happen today – if you stay awake But as the day fades away – here I come again (Bridge) A B F - A B C And your name was written bright in the stars that shone last night As the morning clouds depart I will reach into your heart And falling to the floor our bodies pressed against the door So the time at last is here to make my intentions clear… (Chorus) A G C B Now we lay perfectly still – Hearts beat in perfect tune Oh! What a thrill - The sky is blameless blue Moving in for the kill - It’s the least I can do…
