Verse 2:  Same guitar part as Verse 1

Go ahead hurt me like that - I've been hurt before 
I won't be fixed again, I'm not afraid to sweat 
‘Cause I like the pain and it's familiar to me 
And you’re more gentle than most men will ever be…

Nicotine Love

CHORUS:   

Csus2                     CMaj9
     But don't get me wrong - I don't want a friend 
Csus2                          CMaj9
Just need you here to help me satisfy this childish sin 
       Csus2                                           
This insatiable desire - A hunger so deep, 
         CMaj9
You will melt on my tongue and I will put you to sleep

----------------3---3---------3---3-----------

And I will press you like petals

----------------------- Intro Riff
 in…           Nicotine Love

Verse 3: 	Same guitar as other verses

It hurts just right not to know your name, 
I feel your body beneath me struggling 
As though in some way it were the same 
As when I was with him, 
Gonna make you promise that you’ll peak 
Then I will crush your little heart 
‘Cause I can - Because it happened to me 
Nicotine Love

Intro Riff again 1x

Verse 4: Same guitar as other verses

So come here baby, my honey, cutie-pie 
Let my fingers swim like pale fish through your hair 
So I… Can tell you that I love you 
You'll say, "Never let me go" 
You wonder why it is I am here, but patience - 
Soon it will be all too clear

REPEAT CHORUS  &  Intro Riff again 1x

Verse 5: Same guitar as other verses

So go ahead hurt me like that 
The end is drawing near 
Go ahead hurt me that way  
Don't even know enough to fear 
You don't know how true it is 
When you say my kisses are sweet as death 
But soon you'll have no more options 
That's all you have left

LAST CHORUS:  Boom-chic-chic rhythm on alternating 
              Csus2 & CMaj9 chords

‘Cause this love is like barbed wire 
I’m electric and so alone 
So come here stray cat 
I'm gonna, ooh,  take you home 
And then I will press you like petals 
‘Til you're, yeah,  fragile and thin 
Then I'll... Well I'll... Breathe you in…    
Nicotine love

End: Play Intro Riff 2X, then strum Dsus4 (000000)
