VERSE 1:
Am                        Em
Trapped in a prison, in a prism of light,
Am                     G
Alone in the darkness, darkness of white.
C                Em
We fell in love, alone on a stage,
Am
In the reflective age.


PRE-CHORUS: [Régine Chassagne]
Am                Em
Entre la nuit, la nuit et l?aurore,
Am                   G
Entre le royaume des vivants et des morts,
C                  Em
If this is heaven, I don't know what it?s for.
Am
If I can't find you there, I don't care.


CHORUS 1:
Dm        C
I thought I found a way to enter,
Am
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor).
Dm        C
I thought I found the connector,
Am
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor).


VERSE 2:
Am                        Em
Now, the signals we send, are deflected again,
Am                      G
We're so connected, but are we even friends?
C               Em
We fell in love when I was nineteen,
Am
And now we're staring at a screen.


PRE-CHORUS: (Variation) [Régine Chassagne]
Am                Em
Entre la nuit, la nuit et l'aurore,
Am                   G
Entre le royaume des vivants et des morts.
C                  Em
If this is heaven, I need something more,
Am
Just a place to be alone, cause you're my home.


CHORUS 2:
Dm        C
I thought I found a way to enter,
Am
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor).
Dm        C
I thought I found the connector,
Am
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor).

VERSE 3:
Am
It's just a reflection, of a reflection,

Of a reflection, of a reflection.

Of a reflection,
                      Dm
Will I see you on the other side?
                     C   Am
We all got things to hide,
            Dm              C
It's just a reflection of a reflection,
                     Am
Of a reflection of a reflection.

Of a reflection,
                Dm
'See you on the other side,
                     C    Am
We all got things to hide.

(Alright, let's go back).


VERSE 4:(Softly)
Am                 Em
Our song it skips, on little silver discs,
Am                         G
Our love is plastic, we'll break it to bits.
C                     Em
I want to break free, but will they break me,
Am
Down, down, down (Don't mess around).


CHORUS 3: (Forte)
Dm        C
I thought I found a way to enter,
Am
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor).

I thought I found the connector,
Am
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor).

Thought you were praying to the resurrector,
                        Am                     Em
Turns out it was just a Reflektor (It?s just a Reflektor).

Turns out it was just a Reflektor (It?s just a Reflektor).

Notes:
1. This TAB doesn't pretend to capture all wonderful and bizarre subtletities of this song.  Other than the principal chords of this song.
2. Inspired by (Haiti)'s rara music, Butler and Chassagne incorporated elements of this
sound into the band's new material, alongside Jamaican influences. Butler stated, "I
mean, it's not like our band trying to play Haitian music. I just felt like we were 
opened up to a new influence. Bob Marley probably felt the same way the first time he heard Curtis Mayfield?"
