[Intro]
A F#m
A F#m
A F#m
D E

[Verse]
A               F#m
Rings 'round his eyes
A               F#m
Tracks down his arm
A               F#m
His fans are confused and his 
D              E
friends are alarmed
A               F#m
His wife doesn't talk
A               F#m
Hates when he's gone
A              F#m
Counts every skirt 
D                E
in his new entourage


[Chorus]
             D            E7
And they're all gossamer thin
             A       F#m
Left of the dial, bohemians
           D                 E7
And they dance, tournament style
                  A                F#m
Twirl 'round the room, curtsey and smile
A               F#m
And they sit at his feet, 
A       F#m
read poetry and
A       E        D   E7    A
Swoon with each word he speaks

D E


[Verse]

A                  F#m
She likes the new pope
A                   F#m
She's not scared of hell
A                 F#m 
They meet once a week 
       D      E
at a secret motel
A               F#m
She kisses his neck, 
A               F#m
she plays with his hair
A                        F#m
Her screams sound like pleasure, 
      D           E
her moans like despair


[Verse]
              D              E7
And they're spread gossamer thin
               A                  F#m
Pushed to the edge, frayed at the ends
         D              E7
And it's no business of mine
                A                F#m
They can love more than one at a time
            A               F#m
But they're pushing their luck
A               F#m
Hard but they must
A    E   D   E7    A
Risk it all for love

C#m                                 D            E
Now I walk around in some kind of altered state
F#m              D                    A         
The drink in my hand is starting to shake
C#m                            D                E
I get used to it if it has to stay this way
F#m               D                   E7
A new bunch of flowers I'll have to arrange

[Verse]

A               F#m
I don't want to eat 
A             F#m
or get out of bed
A         F#m
Try to recall 
          D        E
what the therapist said
A      F#m
Ego and Id,
A              F#m
the Essential Self
A               F#m
You are who you are 
      D             E
and you are someone else


[Chorus]
       
          D            E7
But I'm worn gossamer thin
               A                  F#m
Like delicate arch, carved by the wind
            D               E7
There's a glass psyche at stake
            A                 F#m
Throw me a brick, see if it breaks
       A                  F#m
'Cause the mind and the brain 
A                 F#m
aren't quite the same
A               E  D    E7     A 
But they both want out of this place

A7 in the bridge, not Gm

Also missing an "E" at the end of the first and third line of the bridge.

On the piano, the chord at the beginning of the bridge is played A, D#, F#, A, B, D#. It's basically a B7 with the 7th as the bass note. On guitar (capo 2), I'd play it as 302020 (A7/G). So then, when you get to "starting to shake", you walk the bass note down from B to Bb to A, or on the guitar (capo 2) x02220 (A) to 4x2120 (AM7/Ab) to 302020 (A7/G).

Also, I'm not sure I hear those E7s - they just sound like E to me. And "tournament in style" should be "tournament style".

Other than this, everything else is great! Thanks for writing it up.
