Capo on 2

Esus             G6               F#m7
Da da da da da da da da da da dah


B                            Badd9                     Bsus        
    B
You can bash your head against a wall for years,
F#
The wall is not impressed.
B                            Badd9                     Bsus        
    B
Or you can take a giant step away only to discover,
F#
Your wound's already dressed.

E          F#               B                 E
It's not hard to see a beautiful girl,
E                      F#                 B                       
   E
And imagine the life that you could have with her.
E
But you can't bend time,
F#
nor bind it up with twine.
B
You can try, try,
E
you'll never read her mind.
E
Which is fine, fine,
F#                     B          Badd9      B
'Cause she cannot read yours.

B                            Badd9                     Bsus        
    B
You treat me worse than you treat any stranger.
F#
For my part, I say thanks.
(And you say you’re welcome)


B              Badd9              Bsus            B
I am like a cobblestone street, And you,
F#
you're like 50 Sherman tanks.
(That’s a lot of Sherman tanks)


E                F#
Roll right over me,
B                    E
Reduce me to rubble.
E                    F#
I am Monsieur Bovary,
B                           E
and you are Madame Trouble.

E                        F#
So much that what we so grandly call love,
B                         E
is simply in our heads.
E
How many doors slammed closed,
F#
And stepped-on toes,
B
And songs composed,
E
And poems and prose,
E                             F#                    G6
About things we've heard in words nobody said.

Esus
The show must not, the show must not,
                        G6             F#m7
The show must not go on.

Esus
The show must not, the show must not,
                        G6             F#m7
The show must not go on.

Esus
The show must not, the show must not,
                        G6
The show must not go on.
F#m7                    Esus
Not go on. Not go on.

Esus
Da dah dah dah
G6
dah dah dah dah dah
F#m7                   B
dah dah da

B                            Badd9                     Bsus        
    B
You can bash your head against a wall forever,
F#
The wall will never change.
B            Badd9                     Bsus            B
But if you start to like the bloody bruises,
F#
The wall cannot be blamed.

E                  F#
I try to make it seem
B                 E
like I'm over you.

E                    F#                 B                     
    E
The blindest man alive can see: It simply isn't true.
E                               F#
Love only lasts as long as it lasts
                  B
Goes as far as it goes,
                           E
and it goes pretty goddamn fast.
E
Sometimes love is fun.
                   F#
Sometimes burdensome.
B
Sometimes hard up.
E
Sometimes hard won.
                     F#              G6
But you only miss it if it's gone.


Esus
The show must not, the show must not,
                        G6             F#m7
The show must not go on.

Esus
The show must not, the show must not,

Esus
The show must not, the show must not,
                        G6

Not go on. Not go on.
