   Dm
Protecting me
Bb                      Dm                     Asus4       A7
 I throw the evidence into a trunk and drop it in the sea
 

Bb
Lie awake
  Dm
I sleep awake
Bb                           Dm
 I sleep with one eye on the bedroom door,
          Asus4         A7
The other on the cake

Bb                      Dm                      Asus4              A7
 Carving away our fingerprints out of our fingertips until they're smooth

F
Lie awake
  A7
I sleep awake
Bb                          Dm
 I sleep with one eye on my royal flush

The other on the take

I sleep awake

Protecting that
Bb                           Dm                           Asus4
 Calling a deadbeat with his dead boat wrapped around his artifact
   A7
Protecting that

  Dm
I sleep awake
Bb                           Dm             Asus4           A7
 I sleep with one hand on my 45, the other 'round my baby's waist
 
Chorus:
F
Lie awake
  A7
I sleep awake
Bb                       Dm
 I go to bed with all my lights turned on
           Asus4
So I don't slip away
  A7
I stay awake
 

Bb                         Dm
Out on the street I keep a started car
         Asus4            A7
Who only waits for me, conveniently
