Capo 5

Intro: Fsus2

          Fsus2            C/E           Gsus4/D       C/E 
 Do you still keep paper flowers in the bottom-drawer with your belgian lace
Fsus2        C/E                          Asus4         Am
 Taking them out every year to watch the colours fade away
          Fsus2           C/E            A#/D            A#
 Do you still believe in fairy tales in battlements of shining castles
Am               G/A         Am
 Safe from the dragons that lie beneath the hill

           Fsus2           C/E    Gsus4/D      C/E
 Are you still a Russian princes rescued by a gipsy-dancer
Fsus2              C/E                Asus4          Am
 To anyone who'll listen, is that a story you still tell
      Fsus2          C/E           A#/D    A#
 You live a life of fantasy, your diary romantic fiction
F                    G/F                  F                      G G7
 Can't you see it's hard for me, can you see what I'm trying to say

         C                               Em
 It's a gentleman's excuse me so I'll do one step to the side
          F                                     C
 Can you get it inside your head, I'm tired of dancing
C    G/B   Am              Am/G          F    
 For every one step forward I'm taking two steps back
          F        C/E       Gsus4/D   G        Asus4 
 Can you get it inside your head, I'm tired of dancing

|      |Am    |Asus4 |Am    |
|F     |C     |A#/D  |A#    |
|Asus4 |Am    |Asus4 |Am    |

              C/G           
 I know you still like Old-fashioned waltzes
G                        C/G                                G
 Your reflection in the mirror that you flirt with as you glide across the floor
           Am                         G
 But if I told you the music's over, would you want to hear
            Am                                G                 G7
 That your dance card is empty, that there's no-one really there

          Fsus2           C/E                    Gsus4/D     C/E               Fsus2
 Do you still believe in Santa Claus, there's a millionaire looking for your front door
           C/E                      Asus4       Am
 With the key to a life that you'd never understand
     Fsus2         C/E           A#/D               A#
 And all I have to offer is the love I have, it's freely given
F                 G/F            F                      G G7
 You'll see it's value when you see what I'm trying to say

         C                               Em
 It's a gentleman's excuse me so I'll do one step to the side
          F                                     C
 Can you get it inside your head, I'm tired of dancing
C    G/B   Am              Am/G          F    
 For every one step forward I'm taking two steps back
          F        C/E       Gsus4/D  
 Can you get it inside your head 
        G       Am                           F
 That from this one step forward there's no turning back
          F        C/E       Gsus4/D   G        Asus4 Am Asus4 Am
 Can you get it inside your head, I'm tired of dancing
                 Asus4 Am Asus4 Am
 We're finished dancing
