Intro Chords: C#m, B, A, G#

                               C#m            
I'm not surprised it's come to this, Sooner or later there must be another's 

G#   A                                        G#                   A
kiss, Behind that kiss a promise of a life of bliss, Yeah, great I won't be 

           C#m               F#          A                 B
takin' the bait - I'd rather drown And I will not turn my whole life upside 

E
down

                          C#m                                       G#  A
Imagine everything you've done, Under a microscope on view for everyone, and 

                                          G#              A
if the King of Circumspection's here He's come in vain I won't be sharing 

    C#m                F#          A                 B                C#m
the blame - I wear the crown and I will not turn my whole life upside down

          G#              C#m            G#            C#m            G#
Nothing's good enough for me To shake me from complacency, I make my mind up 

         F#                                    C#m
and I'll never be The kind of man who'd make a choice, For if I hold my 

                          G#    A                                     G#
tongue I'll never lose my voice, If each attempted act of sabotage destroys 

           A                   C#m                  F#          A
all hope I won't be needing a rope - I'm gagged and bound and I will not 

        B                 E
turn my whole life upside down

A                         E    A                                E 
And if the genie were set free, and by the laws of things like that he's 

               A                         G#               C#m          A
indebted to me. I'd bury my three wishes deep down in the ground, So I will 

             B                E
not turn my whole life upside down.

G#   A                                       G#            A

mind up I won't make a sound, and I will not turn my whole life upside down

that you can follow it ok. Any queeries, suggestions etc, e-mail me at any of the addresses below,

Thanks,
