Telling Stories by Tracy Chapman
(I may not have the lyrics right in places. Enjoy!)
Intro: Em Chord (6th and 4th strings)

Am       F                      F     F                  G
There is fiction in the space between lines on a page, a memory
         F                    F           F                G      (Am F F G
Write it down, but it doesn't mean you're not just telling stories      twice)
         F                      F     F         G
There is fiction in the space between you and reality
          F             F                  F                  G
You would do and say anything to make your everyday life seem less
mundane
         F                      F     F       G      ( Am F F G twice )
There is fiction in the space between you and me.

                  F                      F     F       G
There's a science fiction in the space between you and me
       F             F       F              G
A fabrication, grand scheme. I am the scary monster
        F                     F           F              G
Need to say it as I leave the scene in my spaceship I am laughing
       F                  F             F              G
Your remembrance of a bad dream there's no one but you standing.
( repeat Am F F G twice )

Bridge:
G                          F                F
Feel the pity and the pain for the ones who do not speak
G                                             F       F
Back the words you get respect and compassion and for posterity
F                    F                     Am
Spread the words and make believe there is truth in the space between.
(Am 4 bars)

         F                      F     F       G
There is fiction in the space between you and everybody
F                   F             F             G
Give us all what we need. Give us one more sad, sordid story.
       F                      F     F              G
In the fiction of the space between sometimes a lie is the best thing
       F       F       F             G    (repeat F F F G)
                       sometimes a lie is the best thing
                                       is the best thing  (repeat)
(finish with Am)
