Intro: A, D, A, D 
A 
your skirt was red and flowing,
your blouse was blue
on the night i locked eyes with you.
D                                                       A
it seemed to me like i hadn't seen your eyes since last december.

my shredding muscles
my popping joints                                                  
                                                                       D
i saw the pupils of your eyes by firelight shrinking down to pinpoints
                              A
you were poking at the embers
          G    D                   A
there's a cold wind coming off the ocean.
          G    D                   A
there's a cold wind coming off the ocean.

interlude: A with a D thrown in sometimes
A
i wet my finger with my tongue and pressed it in the ashes,
rubbed it up against your perfect eyelashes.
D
you said something really important,
something pretty seems to have slipped my mind.
A
walls were freezing, so was the floor.
i didn't want to hurt you anymore.
          D
you had a sad, sad, friend in front of you,
A
that dying fire behind.
          G    D                   A
there's a cold wind coming off the ocean.
          G    D                   A
there's a cold wind coming off the ocean.
