MY FIDELITY - (discography) by Heather Nova Am Is it something ritual I'm caught in, can't break the spell ? G Is it moving in my body Is it biological ? Am I gotta hand it to you You've got one heart ten times divided G Did you cut yourself in pieces To get them all inside ? Am You dream about her, can't you see ? G She's only shining bright 'cause she's so out of reach Am You dream about the seven seas G While I'm staying home each night Fmaj7 G Am Making love to my fidelity I'm rocking in my bed I can't talk can't think can't sleep And nothing's jumping fences I only count what I cannot keep I lick my wounds, I chase my instinct, like a cat I don't know how I got so good Or why my heart's a trap. You dream about her, can't you see ? She's only shining bright 'cause she's so out of reach You dream about the seven seas While I'm staying home each night Making love to my fidelity Fmaj7 G6 Why I love you, why I love you Am (b c d) Why I love you, I don't know Fmaj7 G6 Am (b c d) Why I love you, why I love you, why Fmaj7 G6 Am (b c d) Taking sides with my enemy Fmaj7 G6 Am (b c d) Making love to my fidelity Fmaj7 G Fmaj7 x4 You dream about her, can't you see ? She's only shining bright 'cause she's so out of reach You dream about the seven seas While I'm staying home each night Making love to my fidelity I'm landlocked, stuck in here I don't want to take my freedom I can't change what makes me high And I can't change what I believe in I'm not pleasing no guru I'm not out to look for Jesus I'm not afraid to break the rules It's just, one love keeps me breathing You dream about her, can't you see ? She's only shining bright 'cause she's so out of reach You dream about the seven seas While I'm staying home each night Making love to my fidelity Fmaj7 G6 Why I love you, why I love you Am (b c d) Why I love you, I don't know Fmaj7 G6 Am (b c d) Why I love you, why I love you, why Fmaj7 G6 Am (b c d) Taking sides with my enemy Fmaj7 G6 Am (b c d) Making love to my fidelity Fmaj7 G Am ~
