Capo I

[Verse]
B                  C#
If it weren't for your maturity
 A#m                    B
None of this would have happened
    B                C#
If you weren't so wise beyond your years
 A#m                      B
I would have been able to control myself
 B                 C#
If it weren't for my attention
      A#m                   B
You wouldn't have been successful
            B               C#
And if, if it weren't for me
                       A#m              B
You would never have amounted to very much


[Pre-Chorus]
 B   C#    A#m           B
Ooo-ooh this could be messy
    B  C#       A#m      B
But you don't seem to mind
 B   C#            A#m           B
Ooo-ooh don't go telling everybody
    B     C#          A#m      B
And overlook this supposed crime


[Chorus]
B           C#           A#m         B
We'll fast forward to a few years later
    B       C#              A#m       B
And no-one knows except the both of us
    B        C#            A#m           B
And I have honoured your request for silence
    B       C#          A#m         B
And you've washed your hands clean of this


[Verse]
B                    C#
You're essentially an employee
    A#m                   B
And I like you having to depend on me
B                C#
You're a kind of protege
    A#m                             B
And one day you'll say you learned all you know from me
B            C#
I know you depend on me
       A#m                      B
Like a young thing would go to a guardian
B              C#
I know you sexualize me
       A#m                      B
Like a young thing would and I think I like it


[Pre-Chorus]
 B   C#    A#m           B
Ooo-ooh this could get messy
    B  C#       A#m      B
But you don't seem to mind
 B   C#            A#m           B
Ooo-ooh don't go telling everybody
    B     C#          A#m      B
And overlook this supposed crime


[Chorus]
B           C#           A#m         B
We'll fast forward to a few years later
    B       C#              A#m       B
And no-one knows except the both of us
    B        C#            A#m           B
And I have honoured your request for silence
    B       C#          A#m         B
And you've washed your hands clean of this


[Bridge]
D#m               B              F#                    C#
What part of our history is re-invented and under rug swept?
D#m                B          F#                       C#
What part of your memory is selective and tends to forget?

What's with the distance it seems so obvious?


[Verse]
B                       C#
Just make sure you don't tell on me
  A#m                          B
Especially to members of your family
B           C#
We best keep this to ourselves
    A#m                         B
And not tell any member of our inner posse
B             C#
I wish I could tell the world
    A#m                         B
Cos you're such a pretty thing when you're done up properly
B              C#
I might want to marry you, one day
    A#m                        B
If you'd watch that weight and keep your firm body


[Pre-Chorus]
 B   C#    A#m           B
Ooo-ooh this could be messy
    B  C#       A#m      B
But you don't seem to mind
 B   C#            A#m           B
Ooo-ooh don't go telling everybody
    B     C#          A#m      B
And overlook this supposed crime


[Chorus]
B           C#           A#m         B
We'll fast forward to a few years later
    B       C#              A#m       B
And no-one knows except the both of us
    B        C#            A#m           B
And I have honoured your request for silence
    B       C#          A#m         B
And you've washed your hands clean of this


[Pre-Chorus]
 B   C#    A#m           B
Ooo-ooh this could get messy
    B  C#       A#m      B
But you don't seem to mind
 B   C#            A#m           B
Ooo-ooh don't go telling everybody
    B     C#          A#m      B
And overlook this supposed crime


[Chorus]
B           C#           A#m         B
We'll fast forward to a few years later
    B       C#              A#m       B
And no-one knows except the both of us
    B        C#            A#m           B
