  Where is the moment when we need it the most?____ 
C                   F                      G     
  You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost.___
Am                    G                    F 
  They tell me your blue skies fade to grey.____
                  C               Dm 
They tell me your passion's gone away,___
                              G     
and I don't need no carrying on.____ 

C                   F                      G

C                  F                        G     
  You're faking a smile with the coffee to go.____

  You tell me your life's been way off line.___

you're taking one down, 
                Dm                    G
you sing a sad song just to turn it around.____ 
                    C 
You say you don't know,

you work at a smile and you go for a ride.____ 
               Am

the camera don't lie,
