   " Only ever be the girl who just almost died in my house
     Half naked, looking through your telephone
     Run you a bath and try hard not to freak out
     It's all free and too easy giving it away, giving it away
     It's not cheap but here I am giving it away, giving it away
     Giving it away, ooh

   " Don't be my, don't be my, don't be my last strange encounter
     The moment you came too, I swore I would change
     Though neither one of us would leave unscathed
     At least we'll both go on living




INTERLUDE          (guitar solo)




VERSE

  " Wanna find somebody
    Not like this
    Yeah, I'm a decent person
    Little aimless
    It's all free and too easy, giving it away, giving it away
    It's not cheap but here I am, giving it away, giving it away
    Giving it away, ooh




CHORUS

  " Don't be my, don't be my, don't be my last strange encounter
    The moment you came too, I swore I would change
    Though neither one of us would leave unscathed
    At least we'll both go on living




INTERLUDE          (Play it 2x; ring out on the last E9.)
