Verse 1:
E                  E7           A
He sits alone at a table in the small cafe
E                       E7                A
Counting his tears in a bottomless cup of coffee
F#m                        A
And he's tumbling into his thoughts
F#m                          A
His memories are all tied in knots
F#m    G#m      A
Who is going to save him
F#m    G#m      A
No one wants to know him

Verse 2:
She stands alone in a place where no one knows her name
She catches them staring they turn round and finish the drink
and She's nursing her head and her pride
She died long ago deep down inside
Who is going to save her
No one wants to know her.

Chorus:
E                        Emaj7                       A
I can't believe that you pull on a sleeve when you cry
E                                Emaj7                      A
You stick in the knife then give the kiss of life, live the lie
F#m     G#m   A        F#m    G#m        A
We all have a saviour, so do yourself a favour,
E
Stop living the lie.

Verse 3:
He sits alone and looks up to the eyes of an angel
She catches him staring and smiles the smile of an angel
And she asks him if this chair is free
He says "yes, will you sit here with me?"
No one would have saved him
We should all learn from them

Chorus:
I can't believe that you pull on the sleeve when you cry
You stick in the knife then give the kiss of life, live the lie
We all have a saviour, so do yourself a favour,
Stop living the lie.
Lie
The lie
Living the lie.


I like this song when done either with piano or acoustic guitar, especially
if you don't try to copy David Sneddon and make it your own.
You can play this with the standard chords that fit the names above, or an
alternative that I use for the F#m, G#m, A progression:

F#m  (ish)
x44200
G#m  (ish)
x66400
A    (ish)
077600

If you want to you can also chuck in the E5 variant at the end of that
progression (to replace E major where appropriate)
E5
079900
