Intro: C# , A , B , G#m (4 times)

C#               A
All alone had to talk about it
B                         G#m
Like a two-edged sword, he touched you and he stabs me
C#                      A
All along I knew you were a phony girl.
B                             G#m                                                    
Sit behind the mask where you control your world.

C#                   A
Yesterday he had you in his arms
B                               G#m
When I'm holding you I feel his bitter charms
C#                     A
I can't judge what you do to me.
B                                  G#m
Camouflage the truth, Indulge your fantasy.

           C#          A
Who do you love? Is it me now?
      B                 G#m
Is it him babe? I don't know.
           C#          A
Who do you love? Is it me babe?
      B                G#m
Is it him now? I don't know.

Amaj7                          B
There is nothing in your eyes; that's the way you cry.
Amaj7                          B
All is grand, all is bright. You're just studying my mind.
Amaj7                          B
There is nothing in your eyes; that's the way you cry.
Amaj7                          B                            Eb   D  
All is grand, all is bright. You're just studying my mind.

C#                    A
Was I invited to your masquerade?
B                                 G#m                     
Well the party's over so now take off your face
C#                    A
You say love but it's hard to see
B                                G#m
When you're in his arms throwing rocks at me.

           C#          A
Who do you love? Is it me now?
      B                 G#m
Is it him babe? I don't know.
           C#          A
Who do you love? Is it me babe?
      B                G#m
Is it him now? I don't know.

Solo over Amaj7 and B (with the two others chords Eb, D) and the same chords as
the intro.

C#                      A
I walk around stuck within my gloom
B                             G#m
When I come to you and sit in your room
C#                     A    
Truth is new , I have not a trace
B                           G#m   
Take off your mask so I can see your face.

           C#          A
Who do you love? Is it me now?
      B                 G#m  
Is it him babe? I don't know.
           C#          A
Who do you love? Is it me babe?
      B                G#m     
Is it him now? I don't know.

There is no G# chord in the song. It goes C# A B then slides from B TO C TO C#. And the chorus is C# and B 4 times then its Eb and Ab

I reckon the G#m's there, it's just not written in the right spot.
It should only change from B to G#m on the last beat of the 4th bar, rather than the first
