D                         G                      Electric Guitar
Nothing that's forced can ever be right          [-----------]
      D                       G                  [-----------]
If it doesn't come naturally, leave it           [-----------]
D                           G                    [-5-4-2-----]
That's what she said as she turned out the light [-------0-5-]                 
       Bm                F#                      [-----------]
And we bent our backs as slaves of the night
    G
she lowered her guard showed me the scars
    D        A         Bm
She got from trying to fight
       G    A                D           G   D   G
Saying oh,      you'd better believe it.

D                             G
Well I'm up to my neck in the crumbling wreckage
   D                      G      
Of all that I wanted from life                      (Section 1)
D                               G
When I looked for respect all I got was neglect
         Bm                      F# 
Though I swallowed the lign as a sign of the times
    G
But dealing a jack from the back of the pack
          D     A        Bm
They said      "You lose again"
G    A              D          
Oh,     I said, who needs it

F#
Well don't get me wrong now I tried to get on
         Bm          A         G
With the jokers that got in my way
                                                     D
And I put on a smile and I tried all the while to be straight
         F#
But they just wanted more all the time and I'm sure
         Bm          A           G
That you know what I mean when I say
                                                            A
That I'm sick of the touch and there's only so much you can take.

D                           G
Well nothing that's real is ever for free
        D                       G
And you just have to pay for it sometime         (Section 1)
    D                   G
She said it before, she said it to me
  Bm                             F#
I suppose she believed there was nothing to see
        G
But the same old four imaginary walls
    D         A      Bm
She built for living inside
       G    A                 D
I said oh,     you just can't mean it

F#
Well there was never a doubt that she had to get out
        Bm           A            G
she was just looking around for a way
                                                  D
In the pit of the night there was nowhere to hide any more
        F#
She was out on a limb, she was reaching for things
         Bm           A            G   
That she wanted, but just couldn't say
                                                         A
And she had to be sure that she wouldn't get caught like before.

That's what she said as she turned out the light
    Bm                               F#
And she may have been wrong, and she may have been right
      G
But I woke with the frost, and noticed she'd lost
    D         A           Bm
The veil that covered her eyes
       G    A           D    
I said oh,      you can leave it.
