This song is great and although most of it on the album sounds like a synthesizer, it beautifully on an acoustic guitar. The strum pattern is more difficult than the chords but easy enough too. Enjoy! ~Octy (D), (G5), (Em)... I (D) don't go to therapy to (G55) find out if (A) I'm a freak I (D) go and I find the one and (G5) only answer (A) every week And it's (D) just me and all the memories to follow Down (G5) any course that fits within a (Em) fifty minute hour And we (D) fathom all the mysteries, ex(G5)plicit and in(A)herent When I (D) hit a rut, she says to (G5) try the other (A) parent And she's(D) so kind, I think she (G5) wants to tell me something, But she (Em) knows that its much better if I (A) get it for myself...And she says (D)Oooooooh, aaaaaaah, (G5) What do you hear in these (Em) sounds? And... (D)Oooooooh, aaaaaaah, (G5) What do you hear in these (Em) sounds????? I (D) say I hear a doubt, with the (G5) voice of true be(A)lieving And the (D) promises to stay, and the (G5) footsteps that are (A) leaving And she (D) says "Oh", I say(G5) "What?"...she says (A)"Exactly", I say (G5)"What, you think I'm angry Does that (Em) mean you think I'm angry?" She says (D) "Look, you come here every week With (G5) jigsaw pieces (A) of your past Its (D) all on little soundbytes and (G5) voices out of (A) photographs And that's (D) all yours, that's the guide, that's the map So tell me, (G5) where does the (Em) arrow point to? (A) WHO INVENTED ROSES?" and....... (D)Oooooooh, aaaaaaah, (G5) What do you hear in these (Em) sounds? And... (D)Oooooooh, aaaaaaah, (G5) What do you hear in these (Em) sounds????? (A).... And (G5) when I talk about therapy, I (A) know what people think That it (G5) only makes you selfish and in (A) love with your shrink But (D) Oh how I loved (G5) everybody else When I (Em) finally got to talk so (A) much about myself............ And (D) I wake up and I (G5) ask myself what (A) state I'm in And (D) I say well I'm lucky, cause I (G5) am like (A) East Berlin I had (D) this wall and what I knew of the free world Was that (G5) I could see their fireworks And I (Em) could hear their (A)radio And I (D) thought that if we met, I would (G5) only start con(A)fessing And they'd (D) know that I was scared They'd would (G5) know that I was (A) guessing But the (D) wall came down and (G5) there they stood before me With their (Em) stumbling and their mumbling And their (A) calling out just like me...and... (D)Oooooooh, aaaaaaah, The (G5) stories that(Em)nobody (A) hears...and... (D)Oooooooh, aaaaaaah, and I col(G5)lect these (Em) sounds in my (A) ears...and... (D)Oooooooh, aaaaaaah, (G5) that's what I hear in these (Em) sounds...and... (D)Oooooooh, aaaaaaah, (G5) that's what I hear in these...... (Em) that's what I hear in these (D) SOUU-(G5)OUUUN (Em) NNNDS (A)yeah yeah .(D)..(G5)..(A)..(D)...
