Title: My Mirror Speaks

Intro: C#m E A E x2

///////////////////////////////////////////////////
Verse 1:

C#m	   A		E
With every sun that sets I am feeling more
A			E         B
Like a stranger on a foreign shore
C#m	A	B			A	E
With an eroding beach disappearing from under me
C#m		A	E
And when my mirror speaks it never minces words
A				E	B
That these eyes don't shine half as bright
C#m	A	E			A	E
As they used to do and they haven't for quite a while

//////////////////////////////////////////////////
Chorus:

		A		E
'Cause I'm a man who hides from all that binds
	A		E
In a mess of fading lines
		A		E
And there's a tangled thread inside my head
	G#m		A
With nothing on either end

//////////////////////////////////////////////////
Verse 2:

C#m	 A	 E			
I always fall in love with an open door
A			E	B
Or the horizon on an endless sea
C#m	A	E					A     E 
As I look around the ones who are standing right in front of me
C#m		A	E	
And then my mirror speaks with irreverence
A		E	     B
Like a soldier I can't command
C#m		A	E			A	 E
It sees the frightened child in the body of a full-grown man

////////////////////////////////////////////////
Chorus 2:
	   A				E
And he's a man who hides from all that binds
     A			E
In a mess of fading lines
		A		E
And there's a tangled thread inside his head
	G#m		A
With nothing on either end
	C#m	G#m	  A
There's nothing on either end

E
///////////////////////////////////////////////

Solo: C#m A E A E B C#m A E A E
///////////////////////////////////////////////

There is two ways you can play the bridge. I like option 1:
///////////////////////////////////////////////
Option 1:

B		B/A	B/G#	B/C#
A new position for a different view
B		    B/A		B/G#	B/C#
But nothing changes but the slightest hues
B	   B/A     B/G#	    B/C#   B
When I am standing face to face
///////////////////////////////////////////////
Option 2:
B		A	G#	C#m
A new position for a different view
B		     A	     G#	          C#m
But nothing changes but the slightest hues
B		A   G#	    C#m  B
When I am standing face to face

///////////////////////////////////////////////
Chorus 3:

	A		  E
With a man who hides from all that binds
	A		E
And a mess of fading lines
		A		E
And there's a tangled thread inside his head
	G#m		A
With nothing on either end
///////////////////////////////////////////////
	A		 E
I'm a man who hides from all that binds
	A		E
And a mess of fading lines
		A		E
And there's a tangled thread inside my head
	G#m		A
With nothing on either end

(2X)
///////////////////////////////////////////////
	C#m	G#m	A
There's nothing on the ends
	     C#m    A	   E
No there's nothing on the ends 

End on E.
