Capo on 2

Esus             G6               F#m7
Da da da da da da da da da da dah


B                            Badd9                     Bsus        
    B
You can bash your head against a wall for years,
F#
The wall is not impressed.
B                            Badd9                     Bsus        
    B
Or you can take a giant step away only to discover,
F#
Your wound's already dressed.

E          F#               B                 E
It's not hard to see a beautiful girl,
E                      F#                 B                       
   E
And imagine the life that you could have with her.
E
But you can't bend time,
F#
nor bind it up with twine.
B
You can try, try,
E
you'll never read her mind.
E
Which is fine, fine,
F#                     B          Badd9      B
'Cause she cannot read yours.

B                            Badd9                     Bsus        
    B
You treat me worse than you treat any stranger.
F#
For my part, I say thanks.
(And you say you’re welcome)


B              Badd9              Bsus            B
I am like a cobblestone street, And you,
F#
you're like 50 Sherman tanks.
(That’s a lot of Sherman tanks)


E                F#
Roll right over me,
B                    E
Reduce me to rubble.
E                    F#
I am Monsieur Bovary,
B                           E
and you are Madame Trouble.

E                        F#
So much that what we so grandly call love,
B                         E
is simply in our heads.
E
How many doors slammed closed,
F#
And stepped-on toes,
B
And songs composed,
E
And poems and prose,
E                             F#                    G6
About things we've heard in words nobody said.

Esus
The show must not, the show must not,
                        G6             F#m7
The show must not go on.

Esus
The show must not, the show must not,
                        G6             F#m7
The show must not go on.

Esus
The show must not, the show must not,
                        G6
The show must not go on.
F#m7                    Esus
Not go on. Not go on.

Esus

B                            Badd9                     Bsus        
    B
You can bash your head against a wall forever,
F#
The wall will never change.
B            Badd9                     Bsus            B
But if you start to like the bloody bruises,
F#
The wall cannot be blamed.

E                  F#
I try to make it seem
B                 E
like I'm over you.

E                    F#                 B                     
    E
The blindest man alive can see: It simply isn't true.
E                               F#
Love only lasts as long as it lasts
                  B
Goes as far as it goes,
                           E
and it goes pretty goddamn fast.
E
Sometimes love is fun.
                   F#
Sometimes burdensome.
B
Sometimes hard up.
E
Sometimes hard won.
                     F#              G6
But you only miss it if it's gone.
