[Verse 1]
Fmaj7         Cmaj7         Fmaj7         Cmaj7
I remember photographs,     Watercolors of the past

Fmaj7          Am         G     G/F   G/E   G/D
He turned and said, "You ask much of me"

Fmaj7        Cmaj7          Fmaj7      Cmaj7
Then when we made our peace, We lay between the sheets

Fmaj7          Am         G    G/F   G/E   G/D
He turned and said    "I set you free"

Fmaj7                 Cmaj7       Fmaj7                 Cmaj7
Go on, be a hero Be a photograph  Make your own myths  Christ, I hope they last

[Chorus 1]
Dm                Dm/C                   G G/F G/E G/D
Longer than mine  Wider than the sky  We measure time by

Fmaj7            Cmaj7               Fmaj7           Cmaj7
Go on,be a hero I set you free  Your stagehand lovers  Have conquered me

        Dm                Dm/C      G  G/F G/E G/D      
They'll send you carnations  While smiling faces look on and applaud  Go on, go on, 

Fmaj7                       Cmaj7
go away from me ................................

[Verse 2]
Fmaj7           Cmaj7           Fmaj7          Cmaj7             
I said, "Do you wish me dead?"  Lip service to books you've read  

Fmaj7         Am7          G     G/F     G/E     G/D
Articles on    how to bed a bird in flight

Fmaj7          Cmaj7           Fmaj7          Cmaj7
You called it love            I  called  it   greed

Fmaj7                      Am7             G G/F G/E G/D 
You said you take what you want  I said, "You get what you need"

Fmaj7                  Cmaj7              Fmaj7    Cmaj7
Go on, be a hero, be a man                Make your own destiny if you can

[Chorus 2]
Dm7              Dm7/C               G G/F G/E G/D
Go find a fence  Locate a shell  And hide yourself, go on, go to hell  

Fmaj7                     Cmaj7
Go away from me  I need no charity

B6                                         C
He said, Come unto me I am beauty I am the light

B6                                 D          D/C
Come unto me Hold the darkness and stay the night

             G/B                      G     G/F G/E G/D
I am wonder I am the heart's delight  Tomorrow we'll fight

[Verse 3]
Fmaj7                           Cmaj7          Fmaj7  Cmaj7 
Come on,come on,Come on,come near to me        Come      be my   fantasy

Fmaj7              Cmaj7            Fmaj7            Cmaj7
We'll talk it over again some time  I'll send some flowers to change your mind

Dm7              Dm7/C               G     G/F  
But for tonight, turn out the light  Hold me, come on, come on  And set me free  

   G/E     G/D       Fmaj7   Cmaj7
Lend me your charity

Fmaj7     Cmaj7    Fmaj7    Cmaj7
