INTRO : G ( guitar 1 ) G C D G Well I woke in mid-afternoon cause that's when it all hurts the most G C D G I dream I never know anyone at the party and I'm always the host Bm C G If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts D C G You can never escape, you can only move south down the coast G C D G (fill 1) well, I am an idiot walking a tightrope of fortune and fame G C D G (fill 2) I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame Bm C G (fill 3) If you've never stared off in the distance, then your life is a shame D and though I'll never forget your face, C G (fill 4) sometimes i can't remember my name Bm C G D Hey Mrs. Potter don't cry Hey Mrs. Potter I know why but Bm C G D C C/B G Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me (fill 5) G C D G Well, there's a piece of Maria in every song that I sing G C D G And the price of a memory is the memory of the sorrow it brings Bm C G And there is always one last light to turn out and one last bell to ring D C G And the last one out of the circus has to lock up everything G C D G (fill 6) Or the elephants will get out and forget to remember what you said G C D G (fill 2) And the ghosts of the childer world will linger inside your head Bm C G And the ferris wheel junkies will spin there forever instead D C G (fill 1 ) When I see you a blanket of stars covers me in my bed Bm C G D Hey Mrs. Potter don't go Hey Mrs. Potter I don't know but Bm C G D C C/B G Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me (fill 7 ) G C D G All the blue light reflections that color my mind when I sleep G C D G And the lovesick rejections that accompany the company I keep Bm C G (fill 8) All the razor perceptions that cut just a little too deep D C G (fill 9 ) Hey I can bleed as well as anyone, but I need someone to help me sleep G C D G (fill 10) So I throw my hand into the air and it swims in the beams G C D G (fill 11) It's just a brief interruption of the swirling dust sparkle jet stream Bm C G Well, I know I don't know you and you're probably not what you seem D But I'd sure like to find out C G So why don't you climb down off that movie screen Bm C G D Hey Mrs. Potter don't turn Hey Mrs. Potter I burn for you Bm C G D C C/B G Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me G C D G When the last king of Hollywood shatters his glass on the floor G D/F# and orders another Em D Bm Well, I wonder what he did that for Bm C G That's when I know that I have to get out cause I have been there before D C G (fill 12) So I gave up my seat at the bar and I head for the door G C D G (fill 13) We drove out to the desert just to lie down beneath this bowl of stars G C D G (fill 14) We stand up in the palace like it's the last of the great pioneer town bars Bm C G We shout out these songs against the clang of electric guitars D C G You can see a million miles tonight But you can't get very far D C G (fill 14) Oh, you can see a million miles tonight But you can't get very far Bm C G D Hey Mrs. Potter I won't touch Hey Mrs. Potter it's not much but Bm C G D C C/B G Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me FILLS : ( guitar 2 )
