Intro: Bb

Bb                                         Fsus4
You were standing with your girlfriends in the streets
Eb              Gm7    Fsus4            Gm7 Eb     Gm7 Fsus4
Falling back on forever, I wonder what you came to be
Bb                                         Fsus4
I was new in town, the boy with the eager eyes
Eb               Gm7    Fsus4              Gm7 Eb     Gm7 Fsus4
I never was a quitter, oblivious to schoolgirls' lies


Eb                               Gm7
When I look back on those neon nights

The leather seats, the passage rite
Eb                          Gm7 Fsus4
I feel the heat, I see the light


Bb
Miss Atomic Bomb
             Fsus4
Making out, we've got the radio on
Eb                          Gm7
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Eb                          Gm7 Fsus4
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone


Bb
Racing shadows in the moonlight
          Fsus4
Through the desert on a hot night
Eb                           Gm7
And for a second there we'd won
Eb                           Gm7 Fsus4
Yeah, we were innocent and young

Interlude -2x-: Bb  Fsus4  Eb  Gm7  Eb  Gm7 Fsus4 

Bb                                               Fsus4
Cast out of the night, well you've got a foolish heart
Eb                           Gm7                         C7sus4     Gm7 Fsus4
So you took your place but the fall from grace was the hardest part
Bb                                                Fsus4
It feels just like a dagger buried deep in your back

You run for cover but you can't escape the second attack
Eb                                             Gm7
Your soul was innocent, she kissed him and she painted it black
Eb                                                Gm7-C7sus4
You should have seen your little face, burnin' for love
Gm7 Fsus4
Holdin on' for your life


Eb                           Gm7
All that I wanted was a little touch,

A little tenderness and truth, I didn't ask for much, no
Eb    
Talk about being at the wrong place at the wrong time
 

Bb
Miss Atomic Bomb
        Fsus4
Making out, we've got the radio on
Eb                            Gm7
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Eb                            Gm7 Fsus4
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone


Bb
Racing shadows in the moonlight
Fsus4
We're taking chances on a hot night
Eb                              Gm7
And for a second there we'd won
Eb                              Gm7 Fsus4
Yeah we were innocent and young


Bb
The dust cloud has settled, and my eyes are clear

But sometimes in dreams of impact I still hear
Bb                                Fsus4
Miss Atomic Bomb, I'm standing here
Eb    
Sweat on my skin
          Gm7                 Eb    
And this love that I've cradled
             Gm7 Fsus4              Bb
Is wearing thin -Miss Atomic Bomb-
                      Fsus4                 Eb    
But I'm standing here and you're too late
   Gm7            Eb              Gm7 Fsus4
Your shock-wave whisper has sealed your fate


Bb                                                     Fsus4
It feels just like a dagger buried deep in your back

You run for cover but you can't escape the second attack -and you turn your back, you're so-
Eb                                                 Gm7
Your soul was innocent, she kissed him and she painted it black -on a losing game-
Eb                                                 Gm7 Fsus4
You should have seen your little face, burning for love,


Bb
-Miss Atomic Bomb- Holdin' on for your life
Fsus4
But you can't survive -All that I wanted was a little touch-
Bb                                                     Fsus4
When you want it all -A little tenderness and truth, I didn't ask for much-
Eb                                                  Gm7
There's another side -Talk about being at the wrong place at the wrong time-
