untitled new tune "If You Want To Catch A Villain"

Postby harrymcq » Wed Jul 20, 2011 2:41 am

Not complete by any means, there's just the first part of the chorus that I can't figure out... any suggestions welcome! Brad is obviously still working on this one as each of the 3 versions (so far) are different so I've annotated alternate phrasing with parantheses....


If you want to catch a villain
But you don't want any high speed chase
Gotta think like a villain
What does a villain do to begin his day
Does he wait for a cup of coffee with other villains at the criminal cafe
if you want to catch a villain
you got to be a villain in your own kind of way

?hold me, love stream? only matters on the intake and it's true
maybe you're tired of being cradled, tired of being lonely
loneliness is tired of you
if you think this much to be true
or you don't, or you do

If you wanna catch a lover
but you don't wan't (to end up) with egg on your face
gotta think like a lover
what would a lover do if she was in your place
maybe she's tired of being chased around
by all the guys who only end up putting her down
if you want to catch a lover, you gotta be a villain, at least some days (in your own kinda way)

"we'll all be love stream"??? even fractions of a number dealt to you (Providence version is different, has something about glory...)
maybe you're tired of being cradled, tired of being lonely
loneliness is tired of you
if you think this much to be true
or you don't, or you do

Was trying to figure the chords to this one out. I'm not sure I have it 100% but I'm getting close. Any input welcomed. Lyrics too, he sings them a little differently every version of this. Still can't figure out what he says at the beginning of the chorus either!

Code: Select all
Intro:
G    | Dm   Am | Em   G
Dm   Am   C
D      F   C   C7   F   F   C

C                 Em
If you want to catch a villain
         G         F
But you don't want any high speed chase
Gotta think like a villain
What does a villain do to begin his day
Does he wake up for coffee with other villains at the criminal cafe
if you want to catch a villain
you got to be a villain in your own kind of way

G    Dm    Am    Em   G               Dm            Am
love holds trouble* even fractions of a number dealt to you
           C                D
maybe you're tired of being cradled, tired of being lonely
F                 C
loneliness is tired of you
C7                  F
if you think this much to be true
              C
or you don't, or you do

Break in C

If you wanna catch a lover
but you don't want egg on your face
gotta think like a lover
what would a lover do if she was in your place
maybe she's tired of being chased around
by all the guys who only end up putting her down
if you want to catch a lover, you gotta be a villain, at least some days

F G F G F G F G > Walk down >

hold me, love stream only matters on the intake and it's true
maybe you're tired of being cradled, tired of being lonely
loneliness is tired of you
if you think this much to be true
or you don't, or you do

Jam over Chorus, ends with a few F G# C?

*"we'll all be love stream"? or “love on … sorrow”
