C Am Dm7 F/G
Don't get me wrong if I'm looking kind of dazzled.
I see neon lights whenever you walk by
Don't get me wrong if you say "Hello" and I take a ride
Upon a sea where the mystic moon is playing havoc with the tide
Don't get me wrong
Am Dm7 F/G
Don't get me wrong if I'm acting so distracted
I'm thinking about the fireworks that go off when you smile
Don't get me wrong if I split like light refracted
Dm7 G7 C
I'm only off to wander across a moonlit mile.
Dm G7 Dm G7
Once in a while, two people meet.
Seemingly for no reason, they just pass on the street.
Suddenly thunder, showers everywhere.
F/G G7 F/G G7
Who can explain the thunder and rain?
F/G G F/G
But there's something in the air.
INSTRUMENTAL OVER: Am Dm7 F/G
Don't get me wrong if I come and go like fashion.
I might be great tomorrow but hopeless yesterday.
Don't get me wrong if I fall in the "mode of passion".
Dm7 G7 Am
It might be unbelievable, but let's not say "So long".
Dm7 G G7 Am
It might just be fantastic; don't get me wrong.
