        C       F         Am
We were victims of the night,
     G        C          F        Am  
The chemical, physical, kryptonite
  G              C       F       Am
Helpless to the bass and faded light
G           C             F
Oh we were born to get together,
  Am         G
Born to get together.


     C      F
She took my arm,
             Am      G
I don't know how it happened.
    C       F               G
We took the floor and she said


              C         F
Oh don't you dare look back

            C               F        Am
a backless dress and some beat up sneaks,
     G            C      F       Am
My discothèque, Juliet teenage dream.
   G             C            F        Am    G  
I felt it in my chest as she looked at me.
                C           F
I knew we were born to be together,
 Am          G
Born to be together
