Verse:
D                A
I can't get to sleep
C                 G
I think about the implications
D                A
Of diving in too deep
C                  G
And possibly the complications
D              A
Especially at night
C             G
I worry over situations
D               A
I know will be alright
C                   G
Perhaps its just my imagination

Chorus:
Bm                     A
Day after day it reappears
Bm                              A
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Gbm                   G
Ghost appear and fade away

Verse:
D                  A                 
Alone between the sheets
C              G
Only brings exasperation
D                     A
It's time to walk the streets
C            G
Smell the... desperation
D                       A
At least there's pretty lights
C                         G
And though there's little variation
D                A
It nullifies the night
C         G
from Overkill

Chorus:
Bm                     A
Day after day it reappears
Bm                              A
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Gbm                   G
Ghost appear and fade away
G
come back another day

-Solo-

Verse:
D                A
I can't get to sleep
C                 G
I think about the implications
D                A
Of diving in too deep
C                  G
And possibly the complications
D              A
Especially at night
C             G
I worry over situations now
D               A
I know will be alright
C             G
It's just Overkill

Chorus:
Bm                     A
Day after day it reappears
Bm                              A
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Gbm                   G
Ghost appear and fade away
Gbm                   G
Ghost appear and fade away
Gbm                   G
Ghost appear and fade away

    Edit:

    +2 is the Men At Work 1983 version

    0 is the Colin Hay (solo) acoustic 2003 version

    Both great. Hope that clarifies.

    ?

    The original song is definitely in the key of E, so play +2 if you want it to sound right! (easier too)

    :)

    The last chord in the chorus should change to an A rather that remaining on a G.
