                [Intro]
A    D

[Verse]
F                       A
Another obituary in the paper today,
F                                         D
One more for the list of those who've already fallen.
F                           A
Another one of our comrades is taken down,
F                          D
Like so many others of our calling.
F                          A
We tweet our anecdotes, our commentary,
F                            D
Or we sing his songs in some sad tribute,
F                                         A
While the tabloids are holding a story of kiss and tell,
C
That he's no longer able to deny or refute.

[Chorus]
A      D             A          D
50,000 voices rising every time he'd sing,
A                 D             A             D
And every word he ever wrote reflecting back to him.

[Chorus]
F                          A
How well I remember the stadiums we played,
F                                         D
And the lights sweeping across a sea of 50,000 souls we'd face.
F                           A
A serious drug that you could never kick,
F                                     D
Or one that you couldn't imagine you'd ever replace.

F                             A
We flew like kites on the wings of amphetamine,
F                                 D
Secured only to a bass line and a snare drum beat.
F                     A
But really what did any of it mean?
C
When there's a higher philosophy in reflection and defeat.

[Chorus]
A      D             A          D
50,000 voices rising every time he'd sing,
A                 D             A             D
And every word he ever wrote reflecting back to him.
A                 D             A             D
Still believing that old lie, the one that your own face betrays,
A                D             A
Rock Stars don't ever die, they only fade away.

[Verse]
F                     A
Reflecting now on my own past,
F                            D
Inside this prison I've made of myself.
F                     A
I'm feeling a little better today,
F                                         D
Although the bathroom mirror is telling me something else.
F                     A
These lines of stress, one bloodshot eye,
F                            D
The unhealthy pallor of a troubled ghost.
F                     A
Where did I put my spectacle case?
C
I'm half blind and as deaf as any post.

[Outro]
A                 D             A             D
50,000 hands are raised to a man that's just like you and me.
A                 D             A             D
We create the gods we can and gift them immortality.
A                 D             A             D
Still believing that old lie, the one that your own face betrays,
A                D             A
Rock Stars don't ever die, they only fade away.
