                            The Sisters of Mercy:
                            When You Don't See Me

                      taken from the album Vision Thing


 Modified 23.2.1994.

 The tempo is 120 and it's played in common time (4/4) and those
 '1    2    3    4' markings mean where the 1/4 notes are played. I really
 tried to get those timings but I'd still like to hear corrections and
 other comments about them. Bass is very simple... just follow the chords.

 I got some additions and corrections to this. One new riff and some changes
 in chords.

 Guitars 1 & 2 are overdrive guitars
 Guitars 3 & 4 are 'clean' ones

 Ah = Artificial harmonic
 H  = Hammer on
 Pm = Palm muting
 (5)-\/-\/-\ = 'Bend' down with bar & wibrate

 Bridge: (in here the Gtr3 plays something but it's so quiet in background
          that I can't figure it out. Try some arpeggios if you want it)

-------
when you don't see me
it's not a matter of going to grow
it's not a matter of time or how I feel
I'm throwing off the shadow of a better man now
what you see is what you never had

get real
get another

I don't exist when you don't see me
I don't exist when you're not here
what the eye don't see won't break the heart
you can make believe when we're apart
but when you leave I disappear
when you don't see me...

oh, it's kind of different when you're there
you can lease the peace of mind
you bought a mask, I put it on
you never thought to ask me
if I wear it when you're gone

you never learned
you bought me
everything and less
I turned
you couldn't let me move
I guess, I don't deny, it don't disprove
what you see is what you lost
if I were you I wouldn't try
