Capo 1

A F  x4

F#m            E
 I walked down to the ocean
F#m           E
 After waking from a nightmare
F#m          E
 No moon, no pale reflection
A F              A F
    Black Mirror,    Black Mirror

F#m          E
 Shot by a security camera
F#m              E
 You can't watch your own image
F#m       E                    A
 And also look yourself in the eye
F             A F             A F
 Black Mirror,   Black Mirror,   Black Mirror

F# m      E
 I know a time is coming
F#m             E
 All words will lose their meaning
F#m             E                    C#
 Please show me something that isnít mine
                B                  A
But mine is the only kind that I relate to
   C#                B                   A             F
Le miroir casse, the mirror casts mon reflet partout

   Black Mirror,   Black Mirror,  Black Mirror

F#m                     E
 The Black Mirror knows no reflection
F#m                 E
 Knows not pride or vanity
F#m            E
 It cares not about your dreams
F#m                    E
 It cares not for your pyramid schemes
F#m              E
 Their names are never spoken
F#m           E
 The curse is never broken
F#m           E
 The curse is never broken

A                                F
Un, deux, trois, dis miroir noir,  Black Mirror

Intro: C

C
Every night my dream's the same

Same old city with a different name
Fadd9
Men are coming to take me away
  C
I don't know why but I know I can't stay

C
There's a weight that's pressing down

Late at night you can hear the sound
Fadd9
Even the noise you make when you sleep
C
Can't swim across a river so deep

Gsus4                       C/B
They know my name, 'cause I told it to them
         Am7                       Fadd9
But they don't know where and they don't know when
Gsus4                         C
It's coming, when it's coming

C
There's a fear I keep so deep

Knew its name just before I could speak, yeah

Oh Oh Oh Oh

They know my name, 'cause I told it to them

But they don't know where and they don't know when
     Fadd9      C             Fadd9
It's coming, or when but it's coming  
             C
Keep the car running

C
If some night I don't come home

Please don't think I've left you alone
    Fadd9
The same place animals go when they die
    C
You can't climb across a mountain so high
    Fadd9
The same city where I go when I sleep
    C
You can't see across a river so deep

They know my name, 'cause I told it to them
         Am7                       Fadd9           C
But they don't know where and they don't know when
     Fadd9      C          Fadd9
It's coming, oh when is it coming  
             C       Fadd9
Keep the car running
             C       Fadd9
Keep the car running
             C       Fadd9
Keep the car running

In the city it's the only light

D                D/F#
 I wanna see the cities rust
        C                           Em
And the troublemakers ridin' on the back of the bus

G
Dear God, I'm a good Christian man

In your glory, I know you understand
         C
That you gotta work hard and you gotta get paid
   G
My girl's thirteen, but she don't act her age
D                   D/F#
She can sing like a bird in cage
   C                                     Em                G
Oh Lord, if you could see her when she's up on that stage

G
You know that I'm a God-fearin' man

You know that I'm a God-fearin' man
  C
I just gotta know if it's a part of your plan
   G
To seat my daughter there by your right hand
D                  D/F#
I know that you'll do what's right, Lord
    C                         Em
For they are the lanterns and you are the light

C        Em  G
 Now I'm overcome
C       Em       G
 By the light of day
C        Em              G
 My lips are near, but my heart is far away
C        Em      G
 Tell me what to say
C             Em
 I'll be your mouthpiece

G
Into the light of a bridge that burns

As I drive from the city with the money that I earned
C
Into the black of a starless sky
    G
I'm staring into nothing and I'm asking you why
D              D/F#
Lord, will you make her a star
       C                     Em
So the world can see who you really are?

G
Little girl, you're old enough to understand

That you'll always be a stranger in a strange, strange land
    C
The men are gonna come while you're fast asleep
       G
So you better just stay close and hold onto me
D                   D/F#
If my little mockingbird won't sing
     C                      Em
Then daddy won't buy her no diamond ring

G
Dear God, would you send me a child

Oh God, would you send me a child
         C
'Cause I wanna put it up on the TV screen
       G
So the world can see what your true word means
D                D/F#
Lord, would you send me a sign
         C                      Em               G
'Cause I just gotta know if I'm wastin' my time

C        Em  G
 Now I'm overcome
C       Em       G
 By the light of day
C            Em           G
 My lips are near, but my heart is far away
C        Em     G
 Now the war is won
C                 Em           G
 How come nothing tastes good

G C G C D D/F# C Em G

G
You're such a sensitive child (sensitive child)

Oh you're such a sensitive child
C
I know you're tired, but it's alright
G
I just need you to sing for me tonight
D                      D/F#
You're gonna have your day in the sun
C                      Em
You know God loves the sensitive ones

G
Oh my little bird in a cage

Oh my little bird in a cage
  C
I need you to get up for me, up on that stage
    G
And show the men that you're old for your age
D             D/F#
Now ain't the time for fear
    C                           Em
But if you don't take it, it'll disappear

G
Oh my little mockingbird sing

Come on, my little mockingbird sing
  C
I need you to get up on that stage for me, honey
    G
And show the men it's not about the money
D                   D/F#
Wanna hold a mirror up to the world
        C                              Em
So that they can see themselves inside my little girl

G
Do you know where I was at your age

Any idea where I was at your age
      C
I was workin' downtown for the minimum wage
    G
And I'm not gonna let you just throw it all away
D                           D/F#
I'm through being cute, I'm through being nice
   C                      Em
Oh tell me Lord, am I the Antichrist

The windows are locked now, so what'll it be
A house on fire or a rising sea

But my mind holds the key
D/A                 Bm
standing next to me

My mind holds the key
