Esus G6 F#m7Da da da da da da da da da da dah
B Badd9 Bsus
BYou can bash your head against a wall for years,
F#The wall is not impressed.
B Badd9 Bsus
BOr you can take a giant step away only to discover,
F#Your wound's already dressed.
E F# B EIt's not hard to see a beautiful girl,
E F# B
EAnd imagine the life that you could have with her.
EBut you can't bend time,
F#nor bind it up with twine.
BYou can try, try,
Eyou'll never read her mind.
EWhich is fine, fine,
F# B Badd9 B'Cause she cannot read yours.
B Badd9 Bsus
BYou treat me worse than you treat any stranger.
F#For my part, I say thanks.
(And you say you’re welcome)
B Badd9 Bsus BI am like a cobblestone street, And you,
F#you're like 50 Sherman tanks.
(That’s a lot of Sherman tanks)
E F#Roll right over me,
B EReduce me to rubble.
E F#I am Monsieur Bovary,
B Eand you are Madame Trouble.
E F#So much that what we so grandly call love,
B Eis simply in our heads.
EHow many doors slammed closed,
F#And stepped-on toes,
BAnd songs composed,
EAnd poems and prose,
E F# G6About things we've heard in words nobody said.
EsusThe show must not, the show must not,
G6 F#m7The show must not go on.
EsusThe show must not, the show must not,
G6 F#m7The show must not go on.
EsusThe show must not, the show must not,
G6The show must not go on.
F#m7 EsusNot go on. Not go on.

B Badd9 Bsus
BYou can bash your head against a wall forever,
F#The wall will never change.
B Badd9 Bsus BBut if you start to like the bloody bruises,
F#The wall cannot be blamed.
E F#I try to make it seem
B Elike I'm over you.
E F# B
EThe blindest man alive can see: It simply isn't true.
E F#Love only lasts as long as it lasts
BGoes as far as it goes,
Eand it goes pretty goddamn fast.
ESometimes love is fun.
F#Sometimes burdensome.
BSometimes hard up.
ESometimes hard won.
F# G6But you only miss it if it's gone.
EsusThe show must not, the show must not,
G6 F#m7The show must not go on.
EsusThe show must not, the show must not,
G6 F#m7The show must not go on.
EsusThe show must not, the show must not,
G6The show must not go on.
F#m7 EsusNot go on. Not go on.
