Self Control - Laura Branigan 1984

Intro: F#m, C#m

         F#m         C#m
Oh, the night is my world
      F#m           C#m
City light painted girl
        E            Bm
In the day nothing matters
          D                A
It's the night time that flatters

In the night, no control
Through the wall something's breaking
Wearing white as you're walkin'
Down the street of my soul

F#m                           C#m
You take my self, you take my self control
F#m                    C#m
You got me livin' only for the night
E                              Bm
Before the morning comes, the story's told
D                              A
You take my self, you take my self control

Another night, another day goes by
I never stop myself to wonder why
You help me to forget to play my role
You take my self, you take my self control

F#m   C#m                             F#m
I, I live among the creatures of the night
   C#m                             E
I haven't got the will to try and fight
  Bm                          D
Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it
        A
That tomorrow never comes

A safe night, I'm living in the forest of my dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something, so I'll make myself believe it
This night will never go

        F#m       C#m       F#m       C#m
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Oh, the night is my world
City light painted girl
In the day nothing matters
It's the night time that flatters

F#m                           C#m
You take my self, you take my self control
F#m                    C#m
You got me livin' only for the night
E                              Bm
Before the morning comes, the story's told
D                              A
You take my self, you take my self control

I, I live among the creatures of the night
I haven't got the will to try and fight
Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it
That tomorrow never knows

A safe night, I'm living in the forest of a dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something, so I'll make myself believe it
This night will never go

        F#m       C#m       F#m       C#m
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
You take my self, you take my self control
You take my self, you take my self control
You take my self, you take my self control

I, I live among the creatures of the night
I haven't got the will to try and fight
I'm living in the forest of a dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
Is my world
City light
Painted girl
[Fade out]
(You take my self) you take my self control
(You take my self) you take my self control
(You take my self) you take my self control
(You take my self) you take my self control
(You take my self) you take my self control
