Blue Oyster Cult
Goin' Through The Motions
From "Spectres" (1977)

Intro: E

Verse 1

    E                          B/D#
Too wild to care, you got that animal stare
        C#m/D                 A/C#
You got stay anywhere in your eyes
    E                                 B/D#
And you're leading me on, but you can be anyone
         C#m/D                      A/C#
'Cause I know you'll be gone 'fore I rise


Chorus
          E                             A - E
And we're going through the motions
          E                             A - E
Yeah, we're going through the motions
          E                             A - E
Yeah, we're going through the motions
E                             A - E
Going through the motions

Verse two (chords as above)

Staying with you gave us something to do
I almost thought it was true for a while
'Cause there's love in you lies, you senility skies
You couldn't tell right from wrong if you tried

Chorus

Bridge
G#m - C#m           F#m                    G#sus4    G#m
        To thee I dedicate this photograph
E                 B                F#m
        I'll even sign it "love to you" again
A                     B                E         B/D#    C#m
        And when it's faded and forgotten in some book
        B        A      G#m             F#m              E
You'll sometimes look, you'll sometimes look, you'll sometimes look

Verse 3

It's a game, it's a game, no let's call it a shame
'Cause there's no one to blame just to pay
You were a friend for a day, so don't cry if I say
That you got what you want, it's OK

Chorus
          E                             A - E
And we're going through the motions
          E                             A - E
Yeah, we're going through the motions
          E                             A - E
Yeah, we're going through the motions
E                             A - E
Going through the motions

Then a key change
Chorus
          F#                            B - F#
And we're going through the motions
          F#                            B - F#
Yeah, we're going through the motions
          F#                            B - F#
Yeah, we're going through the motions
F#                            B - F#
Going through the motions
