When he (Em7)walks in her room, he feels confused, like he walked into a play,
And the (Em7)music's so loud, it spins him around, till his soul has lost it's way,

And as she turns the volume down,
G(type2) Ab A
He's getting smaller with the sound,
C It seems to pull him off the ground, D toward the radio he's bound,
E  
 
 Never to be found---------!
