E                                      B
Sebastian you're in a mess
                                                    F#m
You had a dream, they called you king of all the hipsters,
      C#m                B
is it true or are you still the queen?
E                                                 B
   Like getting blood out of a stone
                                          F#m
The city left you lost and gone
                                                     C#m
B
You came to dance, but there's no poignancy when they all leave you...
Amaj7               Emaj7
standing alone
Amaj7                Emaj7
   standing alone
Amaj7                 Emaj7
Amaj7                 C  B

E                                  B
The wider issues of the day
                                               F#m
just pass you by, you're gonna pay
                                            C#m              B
for looking at the floor when people talk to you.
E                                           B
You wrote a book about yourself
                                     F#m
The people left it on the shelf

You'll write another one
 C#m                     B                        Amaj7            Emaj7

 Now you've got a story that's worth talking about.
Amaj7           Emaj7
talking about
Amaj7           Emaj7
talking about
Amaj7             C    B
(trumpet solo):
F#m C#m  F#m C#m   G#m Ebm G#m Ebm
G#m F#m G#m F#m Amaj7
             Emaj7                       Amaj7
Are you happy with yourself?
             Emaj7                    Amaj7
Are you talking to yourself?
             Emaj7                     Amaj7
Are you happy with yourself?
             Emaj7
Put the book back on the shelf
E                                       B
I've seen the company you keep
                                        F#m
You're on the sofa hidden deep
                                            C#m                 B
While on the telly Sid James speaks you like God
E                                         B
You're always looking for a sign
                                        F#m
But boy you blow it every time
                                        C#m
You hear a voice begin to speak
          B                    Amaj7            Emaj7
You ignore it and go softly to sleep
Amaj7               Emaj7
softly to sleep
Amaj7              Emaj7
softly to sleep
Amaj7              Emaj7
Amaj7
             Emaj7                        Amaj7
Are you happy with yourself?
             Emaj7                       Amaj7
Are you happy with yourself?
             Emaj7                       Amaj7
Are you happy with yourself?

(continue same pattern until the end)
