Intro: | G | Am | F | F | (2 times)

G                     Am                     F
 Don't the hours grow shorter as the days go by
G                Am                F
 We never get to stop and open our eyes
G                  Am                     F
 One minute you're waiting for the sky to fall
     G                          Am           F
 And next you're dazzled by the beauty of it all

G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time
G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time

G              Am                  F
 These fragile bodies of touch and taste
G              Am                  F
 This fragrant skin this hair like lace
G        Am                  F
 Spirits open to a thrust of grace
G        Am                       F
 Never a breath you can afford to waste

G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time
G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time
G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time
G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time

Instrumental: | G | Am | F | F | (4 times)

G            Am                    F
 When you're lovers in a dangerous time
G                                 Am               F
 Sometimes you're made to feel as if your love's a crime 
G                               Am               F
 Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight 
G                   Am                         F
 Got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight

G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time
G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time
G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time
G     Am              F
Lovers in a dangerous time

G       Am                    F
We were lovers in a dangerous time
G       Am                    F
We were lovers in a dangerous time
