Am7      G
Sympathy, 
F                C
this is my best disguise.
   Am7                      G
My skin stepped out for my bones to dry up,
         F                   C        Am7   G
for the rest of the world outside...to see.
       F                C
You see I bleed on the side
        Am7                 G
It's a part time thing, a private affair
   F                         C
I try to keep it out of the light.
         Am7                C            F
I must confess, I didn't recognize you tonight
Am7                C     F
Dressed up like my love.

       Am7                       G
And I hate these things but I always attend,
   F                          C
a little sip of something to take off the edge.
      Am7                     G 
And I make my way through the ghosts in the room,
  F               C
trying to crack a smile.

    Am7                 G
And who you supposed to be?
F                     C
You look like heaven tonight
   Am7                 G
And me I'm a tomb, a corpse in a suit,
 F                        C
trying to look a little alive.

         Am7
Are you alright?

   C           F
I worry sometimes,
          Am7                 C     F
are you dressed up to take my life?
         Am7    C
Keep it coming, 
         F     
keep it coming,
         Am7   C
Keep it coming,
            F
Keep it coming.

      C
And I think I saw you for the flash of a moment,
      F
Your broken heart and the body that holds it
  C
I lost your scent in the flash of the party.
    F
The big bright lights, baby, constantly haunt me.
      C
I've never been right, have you ever been lied to?
   F
I think I just saw the same scars upon you.
     C                      F
But is this a disguise? A masquerade for me?
         Am7    F   
Keep it coming, 
          C     G
Keep it coming,
           Am7   F
Keep it coming,
          C     G
Keep it coming,

    Am7                 F
And who you supposed to be?
         C                 G
Hey you look just like my love.
    Am7                 F
And who you supposed to be?
         C                   G
Are you dressed just like my love?
     Am7               F
And who you supposed to be?
          C               G
Hey you look just like my love.
    Am7                 F
And who you supposed to be?
          C                   G         C
Are you dressed just like my love for Halloween?

Just a note - on the Get Hurt version (bonus track), this is in Standard, like the rest of the album, but the original 2012 version is in D tuning like all pre-Get Hurt releases. Perfect tab!
