I go to extremes    (video)    (midi)

 

    Bb - F - C (2x)

 

      C                       F

1. Call me a joker, call me a fool,

     F                                    C

    right at this moment I'm totally cool.

        C                           F

    Clear as a crystal, sharp as a knife, 

    F                               C

    I feel like I'm in the prime of my life.

 

     Bb                                       F             C

    Sometimes it feels like I'm going too fast,

   Bb                                        D                        C            G        C

    I don't know how long this feeling will last, maybe it's only tonite.

 

 - - - - - -   Bb                    F               C

Darling, I don't know why I go to extremes,

                  Bb                   F                     C

too high or too low, there ain't no in-betweens.

             Gm          A7 Dm                         Fm

And if I stand or I fall, it's all or nothing at all,

                 C                    F               C

darling, I don't know why I go to extremes.

 

      C                              F

2. Sometimes I'm tired, sometimes I'm shot,

      F                                             C

    sometimes I don't know how much more I've got.

       C                           F

    Maybe I'm headed over the hill,

       F                               C

    maybe I've set myself up for the kill.

 

     Bb                                       F                  C

    Tell me how much do you think you can take,

     Bb                                 D                          C                   G              C

    until the heart in you’s starting to break? Sometimes it feels like it will.

 

 - - - - - -   Bb                    F               C

Darling, I don't know why I go to extremes,

                  Bb                   F                     C

too high or too low, there ain't no in-betweens.

                    Gm                  A7   Dm                                 Fm

You can be sure when I'm gone, I won't be out there too long,

                 C                    F               C

darling, I don't know why I go to extremes.

 

       D                            Bb                   F                                    C

+  Out of the darkness, into the light, leaving the scene of the crime,

    D                                  Bb                           F

   either I'm wrong or I'm perfectly right every time.

    Am                                F                          C                             G

    Sometimes I lie awake night after night, coming apart at the seams,

     D                        Bb                    F                        C

    eager to please, ready to fight, why do I go to extremes ?

 

+  Bb - F - C (2x)

+  And if I stand or I fall, it's all or nothing at all,

                     C                    F               C

    darling, I don't know why I go to extremes.

 

          Bb                    F              C

No, I don't know why I go to extremes,

                  Bb                   F                     C

too high or too low, there ain't no in-betweens.

                    Gm                  A7   Dm                                 Fm

You can be sure when I'm gone, I won't be out there too long,
