Telling Stories by Tracy Chapman (I may not have the lyrics right in places. Enjoy!) Intro: Em Chord (6th and 4th strings) Em G C G D There is fiction in the space between lines on a page, a memory G C G D (Em C G D Write it down, but it doesn't mean you're not just telling stories twice) G C G D There is fiction in the space between you and reality G C G D You would do and say anything to make your everyday life seem less mundane G C G D ( Em C G D twice ) There is fiction in the space between you and me. G C G D There's a science fiction in the space between you and me G C G D A fabrication, grand scheme. I am the scary monster G C G D Need to say it as I leave the scene in my spaceship I am laughing G C G D Your remembrance of a bad dream there's no one but you standing. ( repeat Em C G D twice ) Bridge: D C G Feel the pity and the pain for the ones who do not speak D C G Back the words you get respect and compassion and for posterity C G Em Spread the words and make believe there is truth in the space between. (Em 4 bars) G C G D There is fiction in the space between you and everybody G C G D Give us all what we need. Give us one more sad, sordid story. G C G D In the fiction of the space between sometimes a lie is the best thing G C G D (repeat G C G D) sometimes a lie is the best thing is the best thing (repeat) (finish with Em)
