Caffeine

Chords and lyrics for Caffeine by Alice Cooper

I gotta stay awake
I just can’t sleep
Because I know inside if I close my eyes
It’ll be the death of me

Because I fear the night

When the darkness creeps
That’s when the shadows thrive, that’s when I must survive
G# 
Cuz every night  
D# 
they come  
F 
for 
 
me
 
A# 
I’m shakin’ in the ice cold  
G# 
shower
 
I been here  
A# 
for about a week
But if I leave, I could doze for hours
 
And that would surely be the end of  
G# 
a coward like me

Caffeine, caffeine

Amphetamine
 
A  
F 
little speed is all I need
 
Caffeine,  
Fm 
caffeine
(Woo-woo-woo! )

 
I won’t  
Dm 
sleep at night
I won’t rest my head
G# 
Because I realize  
D# 
if I  
F 
shut my eyes
A# 
I’m gonna wake up dead
 
G# 
I’m in a desperate  
A# 
way
 
I’m very  
A#m 
near the end
And all I know’s a triple-shot of Joe
Is my only friend

 
I’m  
G#m 
shakin’ 
 
 
E 
in the ice cold shower
I been here for about a week
 
But if I leave, I  
A 
could doze for hours
And that would surely be the end of a coward like me

Caffeine, caffeine

Amphetamine
 
A little speed  
Am 
is all I need
Caffeine, caffeine
(Woo-woo-woo!
Woo-woo-woo! )

Caffeine, caffeine

Amphetamine
A# 
A little speed  
A#m 
is all I need
Caffeine, caffeine
Caffeine, caffeine
Amphetamine
 
A  
A# 
little speed is all I need
Caffeine, caffeine

Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme

Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
Gimme, gimme, gimme, ahhh…
