[Intro]
C2  C  x8

[Verse 1]
C C/B AmCookie cried for three days, till she couldn't cry no more
C F GShe ate the fridge, jumped the bridge and wound up bloated on the shore
F C FThe children they all pointed at another painted score
Dm Em F G CAnd somebody asked, "Can I take a picture?"
C C/B AmWell, the heat down here is brutal, it's hard to do what's right
C F GThe locals shout, "You won't burn out if you don't ever shine too bright"
F C FI wish I was in your back pocket or in your arms tonight
Dm Em F G CI wish that I was loud so you could hear me
[Chorus]
Em AmBut oh, no
Em AmWhat else must I be?
Em Am F GIt's all inside my head I guess but it reminds me
C F Am GThat I need you, honey I need you
C F Am GThere ain't nobody who can supersede you
C F Am G CWe're not such strangers, honey I need you right now
[Verse 2]
C C/B AmNow the streets are paved with petals, the parade is coming through
C F GIt kind of feels like royalty cause' everyone's in blue
F C FAnd yellow flowers falling from a window, too
Dm Em F G CFalling at the feet of such a coward
C C/B AmAh, the mayor is kissing babies, he's almost way too kind
C F GWe're filled to the brim with honest men, they're just way too hard to find
F C FSo stare into his public eyes and watch his clock unwind
Dm Em F G CThen find him old and drowning in the deep end
[Chorus]
Em AmBut oh, no
Em AmWhat else must I see?
Em Am F GIt's all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me
C F Am GThat I need you, honey I need you
C F Am GThere ain't nobody who can supersede you
C F Am G CWe're not such strangers, honey I need you right now
[Verse 3]
C C/B AmYes, I long for a hickory morning with a waltz and trumpet flare
C F GI'm doing my best to recover from what time cannot repair
F C FI'm sick of all this solitude and pre-rehearsed despair
Dm Em F G CMy eyes are a hundred miles away from sleeping
C C/B AmWell I wish you'd write a letter, or telephone to me
C F GThis place is dark and there ain't a spark of who I used to be
F C FSo the sick hearts of the unloved tell the brave souls of the sea
Dm Em F G C"We're all closed up, why don't you come back when we're open"
[Chorus]
Em AmBut oh, no
Em AmWhat else must I be?
Em Am F GIt's all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me
C F Am GThat I need you, honey I need you
C F Am GThere ain't nobody who can supersede you
C F Am G CWe're not such strangers, honey I need you right now
[Verse 4]
C C/B AmThere's a cracked and pale mirror that's hanging on my wall
C F GThe church bell rings and the choir sings, I can hear them from the hall
F C FNow you might not believe it, but there was no fire at all
Dm Em F G CWe danced for seven days wishing for water
C C/B AmAh, Sagrinnon tells the fortunes, they line around the bend
C F GA dollar for your problems, and five to know the end
F C FThey come from miles around, just like a pack of howling men
Dm Em F G CI wonder what she does with all that money
[Chorus]
Em AmAh but oh, no
Em AmWhat else must I be?
Em Am F GIt's all inside my head I guess but it reminds me
C F Am GThat I need you, honey I need you
C F Am GThere ain't nobody who could supersede you
C F Am G CWe're not such strangers, honey I need you right now
[Verse 5]
C C/B AmAh, a simple sidewalk painter, says his life is such a bore
C F GHe spends his time with a jug of wine and a palette on the floor
F C FHe screams, "Heaven! Take my eyes, because I can't paint no more."
Dm Em F G CHoney, sometimes I, I feel just like his colors
C C/B AmI'm gonna go down to the ocean, I'm gonna to fill my boots with sand
C F GThe next time that you see me, I'll be a much more grounded man
F C FSo go and do whatever it is you do and I'll do what I can
Dm Em F G CAnd when we meet again you can try to know me
[Chorus]
Em AmBut oh, no
Em AmWhat else must I see?
Em Am F GIt's all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me
C F Am GThat I need you, honey I need you
C F Am GThere ain't nobody who can supersede you
C F Am G CWe're not such strangers, honey I need you right now
[Harmonica Solo] C F Am G x3 C [Verse 6]
C C/B AmThey call me pessimistic, but it occured to me
C F GThat babies are all born crying and dying is never free
F C FBut I still can't shake that feeling, that somebody's watching me
Dm Em F G CI just thought that I would tell you
[Outro] C C/B Am C F G F C F Dm Em F G C
