Verse 1:

(Riff 1)
(Riff 1)
 C                            Am
You're as tight as a hunter's trap
        F
Hidden well
                 C
What are you concealing
(Riff 1)
 C                   Am
Poker face carved in stone
                         F
Almost friends but all alone
            C
Why do you hide?


Chorus:
(Riff 2 - until end of chorus)
 C                            Am
Say something, say something, anything
                  F
I've shown you everything
          C
Give me a sign
 C                            Am
Say something, say something, anything
                  F
Your silence is deafening
         C
Pay me unkind


Verse 2:
(Riff 1)
 C                     Am
Take a drug to set you free
                               F
Strange fruit from a forbidden tree
                     C
You've got to come down soon
(Riff 2)
 C                          Am  (Riff 3)
Whole lot of drug is what I need
                     F  (Riff 3)
Need a change of scenery
            C
Need a new life


*Chorus (Riff 3 after each line)


Break (drum solo with Riff 2 and Riff 4)


(Riff 2)
 C                            Am
Say something, say something, anything
                   F
I've shown you everything
           C
Give me a sign
 C                      Am
I'm open, wide open, wondering
                     F
Have you swallowed everything
         C
Pay me unkind
