The Muse by Darren Criss

Capo 3

Intro: Em

Verse:
Em                        Am            
You're a diamond that I'm afraid to touch
Em                                Am
You're damn near flawless and I'm sure you'd cut
      C                    D 
on my eyes, my hands, my head, my heart
    D#dim            Em 
You tear this canvas skin apart
    D#dim           B7              Em     D D#dim Em
Oh, what a waste of human art that'd be

Em                           Am
You're a dungeon, but you're made of glass
Em                     Am
Your prisoners have no idea they're trapped
           C            D
'cause you look so beautiful inside
   D#dim              Em
It makes us feel like we're alive
     D#dim           B7                 E
but lord knows we'll never survive your walls

Chorus:
E              Am             E
But didn't you know that all along
           Am                 E
You didn't need to hear your song
                 Am
and if you don't know that 
         C               Cm     D Em
then you might as well be dead

Interlude: Em D Em

Verse:
Em                           Am          
Medusa's child preserved her former looks
Em
She kept her out of all the storybooks
        C              D
just to get back at all of the men
    D#dim               Em
who have tried time and time again
   D#dim              B7             Em     D D#dim Em
to claim the right of her demise and end

Em                               Am
A million years go by and you're still around
Em                         Am
You're knocking us off our feet; you're knocking us down
       C                D
but we still can't leave you alone
    D#dim            Em
The way you move one would be prone
   D#dim              B7           E
to want to be turned into stone by you

Chorus:
E              Am             E
But didn't you know that all along
           Am                 E
You didn't need to hear your song
                 Am
and if you don't know that 
         C               Cm
then you might as well be dead

Bridge:
G          D         C
You make me feel so alive
         Bm                  Am
but its consequence: I want to be dead
G     D        C
Was it how you arrived?
        Bm             Am             C
I can't tell or was it in the way you left...
            Em
us.... here?

Instrumental: Em D Am C Cm

Chorus:
E              Am             E
But didn't you know that all along
           Am                 E
You didn't need to hear your song
                 Am
and if you don't know that 
         C               Cm
then you might as well be, you might as well, oh

E          Am                E
You didn't need to hear your song
                Am           E
'cause you just knew it all along
           Am
You didn't know that so
    C             Cm              (Em)
you might as well, might as well be dead
