|A Bm G|A Bm G|A Bm G|A A |


|A A7 A6 A

I like nightmares

|A A7 A6 A

I like being witless

|A A7 A6 A

One for the news flash

|A A7 A6 A

Cool eyewitness


|E5 F#m5 Bm G |D Dsus4 D

Eighty-one, eighty-two, eighty-three, it's happening


Gotta be a fucking fool to blame TV

|D Dsus4 D

Don't get trapped in

|Bm G

If you're lucky, be the same as me

|A A7 A6 A

I like nightmares

|A A7 A6 A

Yes, I do


|D G |D

There's a simple way to die they call it news

|D G |A D/A A

There's a simple way to fly they call it booze

|G F |G

There's an easy quiet escape, just sleep and cruise

|G F |A A |

It's justifiable rape, they say you choose


And I like nightmares

I like feeling cheekless [?]

Lifting up my lighter [?]

Watching life with west [?]


'81, '82, '83, it's happening

Can we afford strike three

Don't trust the captain

He's just a boy like me

And I like nightmares, yes, I do


There's a common way to weep, they say just smoke

You can cry yourself to sleep, they say just toke

There's a path that never fails, you can't get lost

Don't need roads, you're on rails, I'll pay the cost


And I like nightmares, yes, I do



|G C |D

We were wasted, but you're only waylaid once

|G C |G

What we tasted was a voucher, pay their lunch

|C G

We robbed their banks and we took their gold

|Am Bm

And our lies in the tank must've sounded old

|A D/A |A

But we pleaded


|G C |D E |A A

I said, "You're honor were not chumps, after all, we only did it once."


We like nightmares

We taste our fitness

All kind of goulash

A taint in the midwest


'81, '82, '83, it's happening

Nothing votes interest free

Don't care what it's wrapped in

You can be abreast like me

|A A7 A6 A

And I like nightmares

|A A7 A6 A

Yes, I do

Bm G |A Bm G |A A ||

I like nightmares
