Verse 1

    E	                       E/D#
Too wild to care, you got that animal stare
	D		      A/C#
You got stay anywhere in your eyes
           E			      E/D#
And you're leading me on, but you can be anyone
	  D			     A/C#
'Cause I know you'll be gone 'fore I rise


Chorus
	  E				A - E
And we're going through the motions
	  E				A - E
Yeah, we're going through the motions
	  E				A - E
Yeah, we're going through the motions
E				A - E
Going through the motions

Verse two (chords as above)

Staying with you gave us something to do
I almost thought it was true for a while
'Cause there's love in you lies, you senility skies
You couldn't tell right from wrong if you tried

Chorus

Bridge
G# - c#           F#		     G#sus4 - G#
	To thee I dedicate this photograph
E		  B		   F#
	I'll even sign it "love to you" again
A		      B		E	  B/D#    c#m
	And when it's faded and forgotten in some book
	B	 A	G#		F#		E
You'll sometimes look, you'll sometimes look, you'll sometimes look

Solo - not perfect, but you get the idea.  The bends in the first part are
very subtle.  There is some kind of harmonic at the end of the second line
that I haven't tabbed in.

Verse 3

It's a game, it's a game, no let's call it a shame
'Cause there's no one to blame just to pay
You were a friend for a day, so don't cry if I say
That you got what you want, it's OK

Chorus
	  E				A - E
And we're going through the motions
	  E				A - E
Yeah, we're going through the motions
	  E				A - E
Yeah, we're going through the motions
E				A - E
Going through the motions

Then a key change
Chorus
	  F#				B - F#
And we're going through the motions
	  F#				B - F#
Yeah, we're going through the motions
	  F#				B - F#
Yeah, we're going through the motions
F#				B - F#
Going through the motions
