POETESS PLAY
Tina Dickow

For chords - see tab.

1st Verse:

Bbadd9
This old cracked ceiling
   Gm9
Is creeking at you
   Bbadd9
It seems to know the feeling
   Gm9
Of breaking like you do
    Fadd9        Eb(6)9
You came here to test yourself
   Fadd9       Eb(6)9
To take it all on
  Fadd9               Gm9
Instead youve made a mess of yourself
            Fadd9           Eb(6)9
Youve been having too much fun

Bridge:
    Fadd9              Eb(6)9     /d
And now youre fighting strangers
    /c             Eb(6)9     /d
And shadows on the wall
    /c             Eb(6)9     /d
And voices in your head
       /c        Fadd9   Bbadd9
Saying Why am I here at all?

2nd verse:
Youve ruled out your choices
Like the loyalist you are
And drowned all those noises
Strumming your guitar
Wrapped in cold comfort
A brief and short-lived kick
Another can of Export
That ought to do the trick

Bridge:
Cause she used to come home early
Just to be with you
And now its getting later
And theres really nothing you can do

Chorus:
  Fadd9        Eb(6)9
I came here to save you
         Gm9          Fadd9
Though I know I never could
              Eb6(9)  Fadd9
I dont wanna change you
       Gm9           Fadd9
I just wish you understood
                    Eb(6)9     /d
That you are just a puppet
     /c       Eb(6)9     /d
In a poetess play
         /c              Eb(6)9     /d
And its time to cut the strings now
    /c Fadd9         Bbadd9
Its time    to walk away

3rd verse:
Another early hour
Another painful kiss
Climb back up in your tower
Go dream of what you miss
You came here to calm yourself
To set yourself free
In stead youre alarmed as hell
Cause now you know you never will be

Bridge:
This is your illusion
These are your dreams
This is your life
And its never what it seems

Chorus:
I came here to save you
Though I know I never could
I dont wanna change you
I just wish you understood
That you are just a puppet
In a poetess play
And its time to cut the strings now
Its time to walk away
