Intro 
D Cadd9    G D
D Cadd9    G D
D Cadd9    G D
D Cadd9    D G


     D           Cadd9
You wait for a silence
   G          D
I wait for a word
       D            Cadd9
Lying next to your frame
 G       D
Girl unobserved
      D           Cadd9
You change your position
          G     D
You're changing me
   D            Cadd9
Casting these shadows
       D             G
Where they shouldn't be


D           Cadd9
We're interrupted
        G          D
By the heat of the sun
D           Cadd9
Trying to prevent
         G       D
What's already begun
D              Cadd9
You're just a body
        G        D
I can smell your skin
     D          Cadd9
And when I feel it
         D      G
You're wearing thin


     Am
But I've got a plan
           D           Em7
Why don't you be the artist
     Cadd9             G
And make me out of clay?
           D           Em7
Why don't you be the writer
  Cadd9                G
Decide the words I say?
            Em7     D
Cause I'd rather pretend
            Cadd9               Em7
I'll still be there at the end
           G           D
Only it's too hard to ask
           Cadd9          G
Won't you try to help me?


D           Cadd9
Sat on your sofa
     G            D
It's all broken springs
       D           Cadd9
This isn't the place for
        G        D
Those violin strings
   D           Cadd9
I try out a smile
      G         D
And I aim it at you
     D           Cadd9
You must have missed it
       D    G
You always do



     Am
But I've got a plan
           D           Em7
Why don't you be the artist
     Cadd9             G
And make me out of clay?
           D           Em7
Why don't you be the writer
  Cadd9                G
Decide the words I say?
            Em7     D
Cause I'd rather pretend
            Cadd9               Em7
I'll still be there at the end
           G           D
Only it's too hard to ask
           Cadd9          G
Won't you try to help me?

 Cadd9
You wait
    Cadd9    
I wait
Em7         D
Casting shadows
    D
Interrupted


Cadd9
You wait
    Cadd9    
I wait
Em7         D
Casting shadows
    D
Interrupted


Cadd9
You wait
    Cadd9    
I wait
Em7         D
Casting shadows
    D
Interrupted


Cadd9
You wait
    Cadd9    
I wait
Em7         D    Cadd9
Casting shadows



           D           Em7
Why don't you be the artist
     Cadd9             G
And make me out of clay?
           D           Em7
