Intro:
Fm   C#
Cm   Cm

C
  I got no sense of danger,

G#
  when I met her at first,

C                                       G#
  though with hindsight's cold certainty

C
  I was always a target.

G#
  From the very start

Fm                                   C#          Cm   Cm
  she'd been training her sights on me.

C
  I only later discovered

G#  
  to her family and friends

C                             G#
  she'd refer to me constantly

C
  as if our casual acquaintance

G#
  were a bigger thing.

Fm                               C#
  But I'm not part of her history,

Bbm
  no I'm not part of the action,

Bbm6
  I've no part in the plot.

               C                 Fm    C#
  In all honesty

Fm                             C#
  she was never that close to me.   x2


C   G#   C   G#   

C
  When I heard of the stories

G#
  she'd been spreading around,

C                      G#
the malevolent fantasies

C
  I broke off any contact,

G#
  thought that was civilised.

Fm                           C# 
  How could I have been so naive?

Bbm
  I've been dumb and defenceless

Bbm6
  while she's been dogging my steps

              C
  homicidally.


Fm                               C#
  She got dangerously close you see,

Fm                              C#
  she got dangerously close to me.
