G             C         G                    C
  You came to me in the hospital ward when I blew out my knee
G              C                        G       Cm6 Cm
  But I wasn't there to be cared for or carried
G              C            G                       C
  'Cause I was asleep in my bed, in my house at the end of our street
G                  C                         G       Cm6 Cm
  While you drove across town at 3:00 in the morning
       G            Em6
It was fake for the sake
   C          B7          Em  /D
Of making you take me for real
      C                 Am     G        C  G Cm6 Cm
But I guess you're even less impressed


G                   C                G                   C
  If the world is a stage, and we're all of us actors in some cosmic play
G          C          G          Cm6 Cm
  I am the man at the masquerade
        G            Em6
Who was fake for the sake
   C          B7          Em  /D
Of making you take me for real
      C                 Am     B7
But I guess you're even less impressed
Em  /D C         B7      C      
I keep trying to paint a picture
Em        /D      C   /C /D /D#
   'cause what I drew
Em           C                 B7
  Could be improved if I could make 
Em   /D C     B7        C
You see more flame than flicker
Em     /D    C   /C /D /D#
These half-truths
Em          /D#   /D             /C# 
  Could be improved with less of me
C          G  C  G  Cm6 Cm         G      Em6/C# /C# /D /D#
  And more you       believe what I speak
Em            /D#   /D  /C# 
  At least just keep
C             G    C   /C /D /D#  G
  Speaking to me
