[Verse]

G(II)                       Am
    activity's killing the actor
      D                         C/G(II)   Cadd9/B Am
and a cop's standing out in the road
                  F(II)  D7/F#
turning traffic away
G(III)                                   Am
    there was nothing she could do until after
         D                     C/G(II)   Cadd9/B Am
when his body'd been buried below
                 F(II)  D7/F#
way back in the day


[Chorus]

Em   Am  Em                         C/G(II)   G/F#
  oh my, nothing else could've been done
    G(II)    G/F#(II) Em  D  C/G(II)    B7/F#
he made his life  a  lie  so
Em   Am    Em                    C/G(II)   G/F#
  he might never have to know anyone
G(II)     G/F#(II) Em D      C(II) C#(b5) Eb(b5)
made his life the lie you know


[Verse]

G(II)                          Am
    i told him he shouldn't upset her
              D                   C/G(II)   Cadd9/B Am
and that he'd only be making it worse
                    F(II)  D7/F#
involving somebody else
G(III)                              Am
    but I knew that he'd never forget her
          D                   C/G(II)   Cadd9/B Am
while her memory worked in reverse
                          F(II)  D7/F#
to keep her safe from herself


[Chorus]

Em   Am  Em                         C/G(II)   G/F#
  oh my, nothing else could've been done
     G(II)    G/F#(II) Em D  C/G(II)    B7/F#
she made her life  a  lie so
Em    Am    Em                    C/G(II)   G/F#
  she might never have to know anyone
G(II)     G/F#(II) Em D      C(II) C#(b5) Eb(b5)
made her life the lie you know
