(So for ease, I'm only going to write Em7 instead of Em7add6) (Every time there is the C Em7 Am Am7/G progression, play it like the intro) C Em7 Am Am7/G If you want to see, and be seen, then be seen F G Your dress is dark red and C Em7 Am Am7/G your opening eyes, bright green, make a scene, F G but dont lie on your bed, F G laid out like you're dead, Am G Because honey you're murdering me... (musical interlude is intro twice, try to hit the root notes harder) C Em7 Am Am7/G Be a little sheep learning, who'll shear, and who'll feed, F G The hands come and they leave, C H Am Am7/G Be hands holding a knife, be a being, on two feet, F G With his heart tremble-in' F G butcherin' for a king, Am G He believes in though he's never seen... la da da da (musical interlude) F Em Be the princess in that stone tower, Am G Am Crying for that handsome butchers plight, G F G And as some princess might she still calls him a knight C Em7 Am Am7/G but the best thing for you, would be queen, so be queen, F G you're all that I need, C Em7 Am Am7/G Though I know that it never can be, I'd be pleased, F G To post your decrees, F G to Fall at your knees, Am F G to name all you streets and to sit down and weep Am F G and you're carried back through them and set down to sleep Am F G And to lie by you side for sublime centruies Am G F G till we crumble to dust, when were crushed by a single sun (outro same as intro but softer) C Em7 Am Am7/G beam. (repeat intro till you feel like stopping and then end it on a C)
