Yves Klein Blue - Celebrity Death chords

      
One of the best songs on the album, even though it took a month or so to grow on 
me. It's a simple strumming pattern so it's easy to play and sing along to, 
although it's pretty much guaranteed to bring everyone around you down.

Notes on the chords:
"D, D2" --> play a D and on the second strum drop the high F# to an open E
During the verse, the A is a bar chord on the fifth fret of the low E string.
During the chorus, the chords are all bar chords with the following bass roots:
D --> 10th fret of low E
A --> 7th fret of G
C#m --> 9th fret of low E
F#m --> 9th fret of A

Intro F#m 

Verse 1

F#m D, D2 Your baby and wife took a walk on the beach on a Saturday
A C#m By Monday pictures dressed in bold font
F#m D, D2 The only thing that inspired you was the everyday,
A C#m And that’s the only thing that they didn’t want.
F#m D, D2 The green lights your way, who does it illuminate?
A C#mHow many men reside in your face?
F#m D, D2 And which one got everything you wanted?
A C#mWhen all the world’s a stage, does everything seem worthless and fake?
F#m D, D2
A 'Cause I've seen you live so many lives.
F#m D, D2 Oh, adopted a guise that put you under these lights,
A C#mwhat a cruel design, that I saw you more than most of my friends
F#m D, D2 A Now tears roll down cheeks from eyes of suspended disbelief
C#m To watch a special news bulletin
F#m D, D2
A Saying, "I've seen you live so many lives.
C#mOh what's one more?
F#m D, D2
A C#mWhy won't you rise from the grave like you done before?"
Chorus
D A'Cause they only wanted to see
C#m F#mif your eyes shine like in the films of you
D A'Cause they only want to believe
C#m F#m that they knew you well themselves
D AOh but of course they don't look like that
C#m F#m That took seven hours of make-up and a special lens cap
F#mOh...
Verse 2 Confidants' confidence dies, tongues cluck and tears dry How are you surprised? That nameless sadness lives for all time 'Cause drinks don't stay cold and smoke leaves ash like a soul and clouds all the voices of safety I thought for a moment, yeah, maybe I was alone Just to feel an ounce of regret But that didn't occur once to the lunch ladies They had a cup of tea and a cigarette They didn't waste any precious time saying kind things 'Cause the whole appeal is to rely on the face of things Chorus
D A'Cause they only wanted to see
C#m F#mif your eyes shine like in the films of you
D A'Cause they only want to believe
C#m F#m that they knew you well themselves
D AOh but of course they don't look like that
C#m F#m That took seven hours of make-up and a special lens cap
D A On certain days it's hard to remember that
C#m [hold]Even for you
I hope you rest well A F#m C#m D
