Crash Into Me

Dave Matthews Band

Verse Progression:

You've got your ball
you've got your chain
tied to me tight tie me up again
who's got their claws
in you my friend
Into your heart I'll beat again

Sweet like candy to my soul
Sweet you rock
and sweet you roll
Lost for you I'm so

lost for you



You come crash

Verse Progression With Alternate Rhythm
In a boys dream
In a boys dream

Touch your lips just so I know
In your eyes love it glows so
I'm bare boned and crazy

for you



If I've gone overboard
Then I'm begging you
to forgive me
in my haste
When I'm holding you girl so close to me

Short Chorus (no alternate rhythm/boy’s dream part)

Hike up your skirt a little more
and show the world to me
Hike up your skirt a little more
and show your world to me
In a boys dream

In a boys dream

Oh I watch you there
through the window
And I stare at you
wear nothing but you
wear it so well
tied up and twisted
the way I'd like to be
For you, for me,

come crash into me baby

come crash into me

crash into me

crash into me

crash into me
