Over your shoulder, please don't mind me if my eyes have fallen onto your magazine. For I've been watching, and wondering why your face is changing with every line you read.
For all those lines and circles, to me a mystery. Eve pull down the apple, and give a taste to me. If she would it would be wonderful.
But my pride is in the way. I cannot read to save my life, I'm so ashamed to say. I live in silence, afraid to speak of my life in darkness because I cannot read.
For all those lines and circles, to me a mystery. Eve pull down the apple and give a taste to me. If she could it would be wonderful.
Then I wouldn't need someone else's eyes to see what's in front of me. No one guiding me.
LEAD LEAD It makes me humble, to be so green at what every kid can do when he learns A to Z.
But all those lines and circles, just frighten me and I fear that I'll be trampled if you don't reach for me. Before I run I'll have to take a fall.
And when pick myself up so slowly I'll devour every one of those books in the tower of Knowledge.
Here's some stuff by 10000_Maniacs. I'm not sure the chords are O.K. but I tried my limited best. Corrections will be both welcome and appreciated.

           I  live  in  silence,  afraid to speak  of  my  life  of                                                                       darkness because I cannot read.   For all those lines and circles,                                                                       to me,  a mystery.   Eve pull down the apple and give taste to me.                                                                       If she could it would be wonderful.   Then I wouldn't need someone                                                                       else's eyes to see what's in front of me.  No one guiding me.                                                                                  It makes me humble to be so green at what every kid  can                                                                       do  when he learns A to Z,  but all those lines and  circles  just                                                                       frighten  me and I fear that I'll be trampled if you  don't  reach                                                                       for  me.   Before I run I'll have to take a fall.   And then  pick                                                                       myself up,  so slowly I'll devour every one of those books in  the                                                                       Tower of Knowledge.                                                                      
@SONG: Don't Talk
                D             F#m              D           F#m                 Don't talk,   I will listen.   Don't talk, you keep your                        G                    D              Em         distance  for  I'd rather hear some truth tonight  than  entertain         Dadd9       G                  D                 Em                 your lies,  so take you poison silently.  Let me be.  Let me close            A                                                          my eyes.   Don't talk,  I'll beleive it.  Don't talk, listen to me                                                                       instead, I know that if you think of it, both long enough and hard                                                                       the drink you drown your troubles in is the trouble you're in now.                 Em             A          Em                    A             Talk talk talk about it,  if you talk as if you care but         Em                A              D             G     Em                when your talk is over tilt that bottle in the air,  tossing  back                        A                                              more than your share.   Don't talk,  I can guess it.   Don't talk,                                                                       well now your restless and you need somewhere to put the blame for                                                                       how you feel inside.   You'll look for a close and easy mark  and                                                                       you'll see me as fair game.
        Talk  talk talk about it,  talk as if you care but  when                                                                       your  talk is over tilt that bottle in the air tossing back  more                                                                       than your share.   You talk talk talk about it, you talk as if you                                                                       care.   I'm  marking every word and can tell this time  for  sure,                                                                       your talk is the finest I have heard.  So don't talk, let me go on
dreaming.   How  your eyes they glow so feircely I can  tell  your                                                                       inspired by the name you chose for me.  Now what was it?  O, never                                                                       mind  it.   We  will talk talk talk about this when your  head  is                                                                       clear.   I'll discuss this in the morning,  but until then you may                                                                       talk but I won't hear.
