         E           A
Birthday boy can't explain
          G#m  C#m          B
Christmas eve    he's born again
       E             A
On the line a broken train
      G#m     C#m        B
Going nowhere    endless rain

         E       A
Birthday boy so afraid
            G#m7   C#m         B
Plays the machines    in the arcade


                 E
Oh baby do you remember
                  A
He's been through all this before
          G#m7   C#m        B
Spent the summer    getting nowhere
       E                        A
Taking all of the blame for the city
     G#m7   C#m                B
Calculating    from pain comes pity


          E             A
Christmas Eve a time of joy
         G#m   C#m            B
If you believe    in Birthday boy
           E                   A
This time around it's all a mistake
        G#m   C#m           B
Is he deluded     or just a fake

                 E
Oh baby do you remember
                  A
He's been through all this before
          G#m7   C#m        B
Spent the summer    getting nowhere
       E                        A
Taking all of the blame for the city
     G#m7   C#m                B
Calculating    from pain comes pity


Cmaj7                 Em
      If you knew his name
Cmaj7                    Em
      Would you feel the same
C#m                   F#
      If you knew his name

         F#          B
Birthday boy stands apart
       Bbm     Ebm          C#
As the drama's     about to start
          F#               B
A quick betrayal, a speedy trial
     Bbm     Ebm           C#
As before,      complete denial

                 F#
Oh baby do you remember
                  B
He's been through all this before
          Bbm    Ebm        C#
Spent the summer    getting nowhere
       F#                       B
