     D13           F#m14
3You wait for a silence
   A15          E16
4I wait for a word
       D17            F#m18
5Lying next to your frame
 A19       E20
6Girl unobserved
      D21           F#m22
7You change your position
          A23     E24
8You're changing me
   D25            F#m26
9Casting these shadows
       E27             A28
10Where they shouldn't be

D29           F#m30
13We're interrupted
        A31          E32
14By the heat of the sun
D33           F#m34
15Trying to prevent
         A35       E36
16What's already begun
D37              F#m38
17You're just a body
        A39        E40
18I can smell your skin
     D41          F#m42
19And when I feel it
         E43      A44
20You're wearing thin
21
22
     F#m45      D46  E47
23But I've got a plan
           E48           F#m49
24Why don't you be the artist
     D50             A51
25And make me out of clay?
           E52           F#m53
26Why don't you be the writer
  D54                A55
27Decide the words I say?
            F#m56     A57
28Cause I'd rather pretend
            E58               F#m59
29I'll still be there at the end
           D60           F#m61
30Only it's too hard to ask
           E62          A63
31Won't you try to help me?
32
33
D64           F#m65
34Sat on your sofa
     A66            E67
35It's all broken springs
       D68           F#m69
36This isn't the place for
        A70        E71
37Those violin strings
   D72           F#m73
38I try out a smile
      A74         E75
39And I aim it at you
     D76           F#m77
40You must have missed it
       E78    A79
41You always do
