Tabbed by: DJ

Em7                Cadd9
Tell me a story of mind over matter,
     Em7                  Cadd9
The hope and the glory of life ever after,
     Em7                    Cadd9
The sound and the fury, the cloak and the dagger,
 A7                      Cadd9  Cadd9#11  Cadd9
Days when we sink like a stone!  /_/_/   | /_/_/  /_/_/ |


   Em7                 Cadd9
Porcelain portraits on silver medallions,
   Em7                   Cadd9
Plasticine soldiers that march in battalions,
 Em7                  Cadd9
Angels of mercy, and lifelong companions,
 A7                      Cadd9  Cadd9#11  Cadd9
Days when we sink like a stone!  /_/_/   | /_/_/  /_/_/ |

           Em7                     Cadd9
There's a room, somewhere, with a different look,
            Em7              Cadd9
Where your secret life is an open book,
           Em7               Cadd9
Where the love we made was a chance we took,
 A7                      Cadd9   Cadd9#11
Days when we sink like a stone!

Ladybird, fly a - way, your friends are gone,

Ladybird, fly a - way, your house is on  fire!


Em7                     Cadd9
Let us be lovers, we'll melt after midnight,
 Em7                        Cadd9
Hoist up the main sail, and coast through to daylight,
  Em7                    Cadd9
Twisted like candles that fade in the half-light,
 A7                      Cadd9   Cadd9#11   Cadd9
Days when we sink like a stone!


        Em7                     Cadd9
Well, we die, sometimes, to be - gin again,
          Em7                     Cadd9
When the same old dreams have the same old end,
        Em7                  Cadd9
When we lose our mind, or we lose our friends,
 A7                      Cadd9   Cadd9#11
Days when we sink like a stone!
