Capo 2


Intro: 
C, Em, D
C, Em, D
C, Em, D
C, Em, G


     C           Em
You wait for a silence
   G          D
I wait for a word
       C            Em
Lying next to your frame
 G       D
Girl unobserved
      C           Em
You change your position
          G     D
You're changing me
   C            Em
Casting these shadows
       D             G
Where they shouldn't be


C           Em
We're interrupted
        G          D
By the heat of the sun
C           Em
Trying to prevent
         G       D
What's already begun
C              Em
You're just a body
        G        D
I can smell your skin
     C          Em
And when I feel it
         D      G
You're wearing thin


     Em      C  D
But I've got a plan
           C           G
Why don't you be the artist
     Em             D
And make me out of clay?
           C           Em
Why don't you be the writer
  G                D
Decide the words I say?
            Em     G
Cause I'd rather pretend
            D               C
I'll still be there at the end
           C           Em
Only it's too hard to ask
           D          G
Won't you try to help me?


C           Em
Sat on your sofa
     G            D
It's all broken springs
       C           Em
This isn't the place for
        G        D
Those violin strings
   C           Em
I try out a smile
      G         D
And I aim it at you
     C           Em
You must have missed it
       D    G
You always do



     Em      C  D
But I've got a plan
           C           G
Why don't you be the artist
     Em             D
And make me out of clay?
           C           Em
Why don't you be the writer
  G                D
Decide the words I say?
            Em     G
Cause I'd rather pretend
            D               C
I'll still be there at the end
           C           Em
Only it's too hard to ask
           D          G
Won't you try to help me?

 C
You wait
        Em
I wait
Em         D
Casting shadows
    D
Interrupted


 C
You wait
        Em
I wait
Em         D
Casting shadows
    D
Interrupted



 C
You wait
        Em
I wait
Em         D
Casting shadows
    D
Interrupted


 C
You wait
        Em
I wait
Em         D
Casting shadows



     Em      C  D
But I've got a plan
           C           G
Why don't you be the artist
     Em             D
And make me out of clay?
           C           Em
Why don't you be the writer
  G                D
Decide the words I say?
            Em     G
Cause I'd rather pretend
            D               C
I'll still be there at the end
           C           Em
Only it's too hard to ask
           D          G
Won't you try to help me?

One strum or pick

          C           G
Why don't you be the artist
     Em             D
And make me out of clay?
           C           Em
Why don't you be the writer
  G                D
Decide the words I say?
            Em     G
Cause I'd rather pretend
            D               C
I'll still be there at the end
           C           Em
Only it's too hard to ask
           D          G
Won't you try to help me?
