Intro: D A Bm G

Chorus:
                 D
We'll write a song
                        A
that turns out the lights
                    Bm                             G
when both boy and girl start suddenly shaking inside
                    D
don't waste your time
                      A
speed up your breathing
                  Bm
just close your eyes
                G
we'll hope it's not for nothing at all

Verse 1:
D                  A                           G
Soft kiss and wine what a pretty friend of mine

we're finally intertwined
D              A                          G
nervous and shy for the moment we will come

alive tonight

Pre-Chorus:
F           G  - hit each of these once and let ring -
secret valentine

Chorus:
                 D

that turns out the lights
                    Bm                             G
when both boy and girl start suddenly shaking inside
                    D
don't waste your time
                      A
speed up your breathing
                  Bm
just close your eyes
                G
we'll hope it's not for nothing at all

Verse 2:
D               A
lay down be still
                         G
don't worry talk they will

i'll be loving you until
D                  A
morning's first light

breaks tomorrow
          G
i'll take care of you tonight

Pre-Chorus:
G           A
secret valentine

Chorus:
                 D

when both boy and girl start suddenly shaking inside
                    D
don't waste your time
                      A
speed up your breathing
                  Bm
just close your eyes
                G
we'll hope it's not for nothing at all

Bridge:

when guilt fills your head
Gbm
brush off rise up from the dead
A

D
will come alive
                   A

that turns out the lights
                    Bm                             G
