The Sharpest Lives

by My Chemical Romance

Well it rains and it pours when you're out on your own

If I crash on the couch, can I sleep in my clothes

Because I spent the night dancing and I'm drunk, I suppose

If it looks like I'm laughing, I'm really just asking to leave

/ C# - / A - / F# - / Ab - /

This alone, you're in time for the show

You're the one that I need, I'm the one that you loathe

You can watch me corrode like a beast in repose

Because I love all the poison, away with the boys in the band


I've really been on a bender and it shows

So why don't you blow me

A kiss before she goes

/ A B G# C# / A B / G# - /


Give me a shot to remember

And you can take all the pain away from me

Your kiss and I will surrender

The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead

A light to burn all the empires

So bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be

In love with all of these vampires

So you can leave like the sane abandoned me

There's a place in the dark where the animals go

You can take off your skin in the cannibal glow

Juliet loves the beat and the lust it commands

Drop the dagger and lather the blood on your hands, Romeo
