Intro:
C2 G C2 G

Verse:
C2             G             C2                   G
golden bars of sunlight come sneaking through the shutters
       C2            G           Am
laying stripes on my back like a zebra
C2                     G         C2              G
sweaty fingers turning pages and clinging to the bed
            C2          G             Am
like it's a bride and I never want to leave her

C2              G             C2                   G
Paul calls me a saint and the mattress shakes with laughter
        C2               G                 Am
and the sheets let out a chuckle while the pillow holds one end
C2                G                C2           G 
I don't believe a word I read but the man is so convincing
            C2           G           Am
says You're calling me a winner of a game I never win

         Em                          Am
but with every word I read I feel Your eyes upon me
            C       D
and I don't mind at all

Chorus:
G                C2                Em               D
I love the way You look at me, the way You steer Your eyes 
           G                 C2                 Em 
to see the bride beneath the harlot's skin, the virtue 
D
underneath the sin
  G               C2                Em                    D
I love the way You look at me, when You lift the veil and You repeat
  C2          G     C2      G        C2       G
Your vow.

(repeat verse chords)
get up for the shower, wash, and scrub, and scour every part
as if a cleaner man could better bear the shame
now I move out into the sunlight, a frightened fool
there's reason for my fright, for I'm a messenger who's forgetting
why he came

but with every word I read I feel Your eyes upon me 
and I don't mind at all

(repeat chorus)

Em                                            Am
for when You look at me, You see every drop of blood You spent
         Em                              Am
like the color that comes creeping to my face
     Em           Am                      C
it is such sweet embarrassment to see the dowry that You paid
D            C2   G  
for my cold embrace
         C2    G     C2
but I'll never never never let You go because...

(repeat chorus) 

-Christian Orton
