*sounds better if u play it muting and slapping the guitar

with resonant bass strings*


Chord Progression 1:


G#m F#

Dig if you will the picture


G#m F#

Of you and I engaged in a kiss


G#m F#

The sweat of your body covers me


F# (G#) G#m

Can you my darling, can you picture this


Use Chord Progression 1:


Dream if you can a courtyard

An ocean of violets in bloom

Animals strike curious poses

They feel the heat

The heat between me and you



G# F#

How can you just leave me standing


G#m F#

Alone in a world that's so cold, so cold


G# F#

Maybe I'm just to demanding


F# G#

Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold


G#m F#

Maybe you're just like my mother


G# F#

She's never satisfied, she's never satisfied


G#m F#m (slap-mute)

Why do we scream at each other


(No chords)


This is what it sounds like

When doves cry


Use Chord Progression 1:

Touch if you will my stomach

Feel how it trembles inside

You've got the butterflies all tied up

Don't make me chase you

Even doves have pride


{Refrain twice}
