There.  There it is.
I swear he's going to murder that poor kid.
Wait, I hear it again.
Don't turn on the light until we hear the way it ends.

{Chorus (strummed) }
[3/4 time]
am             em      GM                 DM
Under Peruvian skies Vanessa regretfully waits.
am                       em          GM 
The story unfolds in her eyes, where midnight hysteria's
FM
No big surprise.
am                    am/G                 am/F#
Battered and bruised, always confusing the love
                       FM
That she's losing for hate.  Poor Vanessa.

{rythym figure 1}
[4/4 time]

Hey, I hope you know
I'm taking all this with me when I go.
Shame, you're not to blame.
I'm the monster you created
In your daddy's name.

{Chorus (strummed) }
[3/4 time]
am             em      GM                 DM
Under Peruvian skies Vanessa regretfully waits.
am                       em          GM 
The story unfolds in her eyes, where midnight hysteria's
FM
No big surprise.
am                    am/G                 am/F#
Battered and bruised, always confusing the love

That she's losing for hate.  Poor Vanessa.

	-->Here the x's represent harmonics played on the
	low E string between the third and fifth fret.  I 
	don't know what they are for sure, but you can 
	experiment with them.  Plus the B-flat chord may not
	be exactly right.
