Am            Em                  C             G/B           Am
So many years ago, many more than I'd even care to bear in my mind
             Em                G       D/F#
From the darkest of all places I found you
Am      Em                   C            G/B                Am 
All the limbs in their right places and a heart made of real gold
             Em              G          D/F#
Sell me your little doll, oh sir, I ask you kind

C     Em      Dadd11      C               Em             Dadd11        C
Every night I returned to watch them- The master and the puppet in the show
            Em  Dadd11   C                      Em  Dadd11         C  
He said "Oh no, I cannot sell him. Priceless he is, masterpiece of mine."

       Am           Em         C           G/B   
Please sell me your puppet, sir, name your price oh please! 
    Am           Em      G                D/F#
Whatever you may ask, tenfold the price I pay
Am        Em             C              G/B
Did I not make it clear? This debate is over
       Am    Em             G          D/F#
I will never part from this puppet, my son

C           Em     Dadd11        C                    Em             Dadd11        C
With hungry eyes I followed them all night, the blind master and the puppet he had made
    Em      Dadd11         C                  Em         Dadd11       C
No, sir, to sell is not my will!  The doll is mine, even if I have to kill

Bb          Dm     C               Bb      Dm             C            Bb
So it shall be, if this is what it takes.  Greed is truly blinder than me
         Dm   C           Bb                Dm         C             Bb
Heart of gold is what you wish for? So this little boy wants to be a puppet, for real

  ..Dm  C  Bb..  Dm  C  G
Bb  Dm  C  F  Bb Dm  C  G 

C             Dadd11 D5
So I have the golden heart
C        Dadd11      B        D5    
Now only needing the voice of the master
C          G/B   Dadd11       E 
Never feel hunger, never grow older
   C            D5   B                     Am
My dream was to be a star in a real puppet show

  ..Em  C  G/B  Am  Em  G  D/F#
Am  Em  C  G/B  Am  Em  G  D/F#
Am  Em  C  G/B  Am  Em  G  D/F#
Am  Em  C  G/B  Am  Em  G  D/F#


Am      Am6     Am          Dm         Esus4   E        Gm
It's so hard to remember my life.. The times before the show
      Gm6  Gm          Cm        Dsus4           D                   Am
Can I ever cut off the strings? "Take a bow, now dance and sing..." (Sing!)
          Am6     Am   Dm                Esus4    E       Gm
Would you turn me to a child again? "No, never, I am your guide"
        Gm6         Gm          Cm
You can see a small grin on the face
       F5      Dm       G5       Em
Of the master, when the puppet's in his place

   Am                                            E   G
Be careful what you wish for, wishes might come alive
(G)                                           E  Am
The twines are pulling me every day and night
(Am)                                                        E   G
The show, the glitter and all the fame, I'd give away for a life
Some things can end with a word, they say
                            E      Am
This only ends with a sharp knife (Knife!)

Bb  Dm  C  Dm  Bb  Dm  Gsus4 G
Bb  Dm  C  Dm  Bb  C   G     E  (Strum out on variations of Am..)
