Lyrics:

Upon the sand, upon the bay 
"There is a quick and easy way" you say 
Before you illustrate 
I'd rather state :                          Verse is reapetedly Am Em C G
"I'm not the man you think I am 
I'm not the man you think I am" 
And Sorrow's native son 
He will not smile for anyone 

And Pretty Girls Make Graves                This link is the Bm A G part
Oh ...                                      (play E to enter the next verse) 

End of the pier, end of the bay 
You tug my arm, and say : "Give in to lust, 
Give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll 
Soon be dust ... "
Oh, I'm not the man you think I am         
I'm not the man you think I am 
And Sorrow's native son 
He will not rise for anyone 

And Pretty Girls Make Graves 
Oh really ?
Oh ...                                      

I could have been wild and I could have 
Been free 
But Nature played this trick on me 
She wants it Now 
And she will not wait 
But she's too rough 
And I'm too delicate 
Then, on the sand 
Another man, he takes her hand 
A smile lights up her stupid face 
(and well, it would) 

I lost my faith in Womanhood 
I lost my faith in Womanhood                  Ending goes Em and C9
I lost my faith ...                           The song fades out with the riff 
Oh ...
