Lyrics/chords to "Arms And Legs"

Boy

(Ian Hunter)

(Tune down half step for orig key)

D                  D/C#
Up in the morning, unsteady on my feet
Em7                  A
Can't seem to focus, didn't get much sleep last night
D                  D/C#
Look in the mirror, what did I see?
Em7                      A
Ghostly shadow of a man, staring back at me

Em                G
I'm the one, that walked away from love
                   D       D/C#    Em7    
Couldn't take that chance, I don't know what I was thinking of
Em7                           A
If you want to know what love is
Em7                           A
If you want to know what love is

D                  D/C#
These are my arms, these are my legs
Em7                            A
These are the thoughts running round in my head
D                           D/C#                  Em7
I want to be where you are, I want to do what you do 
      A                           D    D/C#  Em7  A
Cause nothin really matters but you

D                  D/C#
You are my illness, you are my disease
Em7                                    A
You're up there on that pedestal, I'm down here on my knees
D                     D/C#
You are my obsession, every waking hour
Em7                        A
All I do is think of you, wondering where you are

Em            G
I'm the one, watching from a distance,  
                D         D/C#    Em7    
Can't believe, ah you're smiling without me,
Em7                           A
If you want to know what love is
Em7                           A
If you want to know what love is

D                  D/C#
These are my arms, these are my legs
Em7                            A
These are the thoughts running round in my head
D                           D/C#                  Em7
I want to be where you are, I want to do what you do 
      A                           D    D/C#  Em7  A
Cause nothin really matters but you

(Slow down)
D                  D/C#
I still got your picture, hanging in my soul
Em7                        A
Everytime I look at it the tears just start to roll, 
D                  D/C#
I still got your laughter buried in my brain
Em7                          A
Every time I hear it I start tearing up again

Em              G
I'm the guy you never seemed to notice
             D         D/C#    Em7    
A passerby, our eyes would never meet
Em7                               A
But if you want to know what love is, 
Em7                            A
If you want to know what love is!

D                  D/C#
These are my arms, these are my legs
Em7                            A
These are the thoughts running round in my head
D                           D/C#                  Em7
I want to be where you are, I want to do what you do 
      A                           D    D/C#  Em7  A
Cause nothin really matters but you
