Intro: Gm Eb Bb Bb Gm Eb Gm Cm

Gm        Eb     Bb
       I stole a key
       Gm                      Eb
Took a car downtown where the lost boys meet
          Bb                Cm                         Gm                     
I took a car downtown and took what they offered me  
    Eb    Bb
To set me free
           Gm                    Eb
I saw the lights go down at the end of the scene
           Bb                          Cm                                      
I saw the lights go down and they're standing in front of me  

Gm Eb Bb Bb Gm Eb Gm Cm

Gm           Eb      Bb
        My scarecrow dreams
           Gm                     Eb
When they smashed my heart into smithereens
          Bb                     Cm                    Gm                        
I'll be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete
      Eb     Bb
Be a cartoon heart

Light a fire, from a spark
F                            Eb
Light a fire, a flame in my heart

We'll run wild
We'll be glowing in the dark

Eb Bb Bb Gm Eb Gm Cm 

Gm Eb Bb Bb Gm Eb Gm Cm 

All the boys, all the girls
         Eb              Bb
All the madness in the world
All the boys, all the girls
         Eb              Bb
All the madness that occurs
All the highs, all the lows
As the room is spinning, oh

We'll run wild oh
We'll start glowing in the dark

Gm  Eb  Bb  Gm Eb  Gm  Cm x2

It was all an innocent riot
We'll be glowing in the dark
