Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins)


This is fully transcribed in the August 2004 issue of Guitar One.


Em7   Cadd9   G   D/F#


   Em7            Cadd9     G                        D/F#

Disarm you with a smile and cut you like you want me to.

Em7             Cadd9   G                      D/F#    Em7

Cut that little child inside of me and such a part of you

Em7  Cadd9               G   D/F#

Ooh--------, the years burn.

Em7  Cadd9               G   D/A       C

Ooh--------, the years burn.



C                      Em7     D/A         C

I used to be a little boy-- so old in my shoes.

C                        Em7              D/A             C

And what I choose is my choice.  What's a boy supposed to do?

C                                 Em7     D/A

The killer in me is the killer in you, my love.

C                         Em7  D/A  Em7  D/A   C

I send this smile over to you.


Disarm you with a smile and leave you like they left me here.

To wither in denial the bitterness of one who's left alone.

Ooh, the years burn.

Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn.





D             Em                  C

The killer in me is the killer in you;

C                            D

I'll send this smile over to you.  [repeat these 2 lines 3x]


Em   D   Em   D   Em   C
