Real Life/Alibis

capo 3rd

Intro:  C F C F


Verse 1:

C                  C7
Saturday morning a while before daylight Iím 
F                     C
Lying here hoping for rain 
     Gm    F           C
By tomorrow I could be anywhere 
C                 Gm
Passing streetcars alive without breathing 
    F                  C
Iím lost in the city again 
          Bb     F                C        
Without a purpose I canít believe anything 


Pre-Chorus:

                F      Am
And I know itís not my place 
      G            C     
To be asking these questions 
      F          C
but I canít just chase 
      Bb           F
every world that I see because


Chorus:

C          F 
This isnít real life 
C    G     Em       Am
This isnít happening 
         Dm        Am
Seems so believable 
G                     C
But itís not the real thing
          F         C 
This isnít real life 
     G         Em      Am
Itís just some enormous lie
   Dm              F               G    C 
And I know Iíll be fine this isnít real life 


Verse 2:  (see above chords)

Such a mystery 
Am I supposed to believe these illusions are real 
Out of focus, step out of character 
Into a world I can feel 
Maybe itís only a sense of propriety 
Keeping us grounded at all 
Or weíd run screaming 
Into the morning and out of control 


Pre-Chorus 2:  

G     F               C                 G
Maybe I can find some piece of a world I can handle 
Em   F           G          
Or a common line, any one sign 
E7            A
All a part of me 


Chorus 2:

A          D        A
This isnít real life 
E              C#m9   
This isnít happening
          F#m      Bm
Seems so believable 
    F#m          E    A    
But itís not the real thing
           Dm      A 
This isnít real life 
     E                C#m9
Itís just an enormous lie 
    F#m      Bm      D             E  
And weíll be fine if we can find a real life

Verse 1:

B
Listen 
    G        C        B
The world is listening in
      G        F#
Every name and number 
B          G       C        B
Suddenly I canít believe my eyes 
            G          A   F# G A F# G A
Weíre gonna need those alibis 
B         G        C      B
Hoping it all just fades away
              G        F# 
Maybe theyíre all just paper 
B            G     C     B
Airplanes and imaginary cries
        G       A7 
Theyíre not your neighbour 


Chorus:

D                G
We all have our alibis
D                             G 
Weíve got our reasons and our reasonable words 
       A                               G
But we all just hide our eyes and make believe we never heard 
   F#m                
And when the sirens rise
     G                A  
Weíre gonna need those alibis

Vs. 2

B            G        C      B
Helpless and hopeless on the screen 
        G     F#
Maybe another channel
B                G  C 
Might change the dialogue
   B             G              A7 
To talk about it doesnít hurt at all 


Chorus: 

D               G
We all have our alibis
 D                           G
Weíve got our reasons and our reasonable words 
   A                                      G
We talk and talk as though thereís nothing to it
F#m  
We can change it all 
   G                A7
As long as we donít have to do it 
D               G
We all have our alibis 
D    
Weíve got our reasons and we 
G
Lie and lie and lie 
D               G
We all have our alibis 
D            
Weíve got our reasons 
G
Weíve got our reasons 

             A             G
And if weíre not afraid to fall 
          A            G
Weíre not listening at all 
    F#m            
And when the silence fills the sky 
      G                A7
We're gonna need those alibis 


Outro:  D
What does it matter if they're all lies
