Verse I: 
               D     Em
Portrait of a girl.
           D     G
Canvas of ages.
                  D
The stage is hers 
           Em               D
demure and practiced beauty
                  G
holding all inthrall. 
              D     Em
Portrait of a girl.
          D      G
Object of rumor.
             D
A pose at play,
                   Em            D
they say she's fairest of them all. 
                   A
Chorus: Paint her in,
            F#m            G
one color ends and one begins.
                     Em
Brush away what's stray 
                    A
add a finishing touch. 
               Bm
The rapture cold as a pearl.
        G                            B
Now the portrait has captured the girl.

B D Em D G

Verse II:

              D     Em
Portrait of a girl.
           D         G
Painted il-lu--sion.
                   D
She'll play her part.
                  Em            D
She sees that she's a work of art. 

Chorus:

            A
Paint her in,
                     F#m           G
watching one color end and one begin.
                      Em
Brush away what's stray 
                           A
there's disguise in her eyes.
                     F#m             G
Add shadows that dance across her skin.
                                   Em     A
Hide the doubt that cries out within her.
                    F#m
Stripped bare beneath all the layers 
          G              Em            A
would you recognize the girl lying there?
                   Bm
Sought after trapped like a pearl,
        G                           Bm
now the portrait has captured the girl.
              G                      B  B D Em D G
Now the portrait has captured the girl.

Outro: 
            D     Em  
Dare you to fall, 
                D
fairest of them all.
