     D           F#m
You wait for a silence
   A          E
I wait for a word
       D            F#m
Lying next to your frame
 A       E
Girl unobserved
      D           F#m
You change your position
          A     E
You're changing me
   D            F#m
Casting these shadows
       E             A
Where they shouldn't be


D           F#m
We're interrupted
        A          E
By the heat of the sun
D           F#m
Trying to prevent
         A       E
What's already begun
D              F#m
You're just a body
        A        E
I can smell your skin
     D          F#m
And when I feel it
         E      A
You're wearing thin


     F#m      D  E
But I've got a plan
           E           F#m
Why don't you be the artist
     D             A
And make me out of clay?
           E           F#m
Why don't you be the writer
  D                A
Decide the words I say?
            F#m     A
Cause I'd rather pretend
            E               F#m
I'll still be there at the end
           D           F#m
Only it's too hard to ask
           E          A
Won't you try to help me?


D           F#m
Sat on your sofa
     A            E
It's all broken springs
       D           F#m
This isn't the place for
        A        E
Those violin strings
   D           F#m
I try out a smile
      A         E
And I aim it at you
     D           F#m
You must have missed it
       E    A
You always do



     F#m      D  E
But I've got a plan
   E           F#m
Why don't you be the artist
     D             A
And make me out of clay?
           E           F#m
Why don't you be the writer
  D                A
Decide the words I say?
            F#m     A
Cause I'd rather pretend
            E               F#m
I'll still be there at the end
           D           F#m
Only it's too hard to ask
           E          A
Won't you try to help me?

 D
You wait
        F#m
I wait
F#m         E
Casting shadows
    E
Interrupted


 D
You wait
        F#m
I wait
F#m         E
Casting shadows
    E
Interrupted



 D
You wait
        F#m
I wait
F#m         E
Casting shadows
    E
Interrupted


 D
You wait
        F#m
I wait
F#m         E
Casting shadows



     F#m      D  E
But I've got a plan
         E           F#m
Why don't you be the artist
     D             A
And make me out of clay?
           E           F#m

           D           F#m
Only it's too hard to ask
           E          A
Won't you try to help me?

One strum or pick

        E           F#m
Why don't you be the artist
     D             A
And make me out of clay?
           E           F#m
Why don't you be the writer
  D                A
Decide the words I say?
            F#m     A
Cause I'd rather pretend
            E               F#m
I'll still be there at the end

           D           F#m
Only it's too hard to ask
           E          A
Won't you try to help me?
