[G]Well I woke in mid-afternoon cau[C]se that's when it a[D]ll hurts the [G]most
[G]I dream I never know anyone at the par[C]ty and I'm a[D]lways the [G]host
If dr[Bm]eams are like movies, then mem[C]ories are films about gh[G]osts
You can [D]never escape, you can on[C]ly move south down the c[G]oast
G C D G (fill 1)
well, I am an idiot walking a tightrope of fortune and fame
G C D G (fill 2)
I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame
Bm C G (fill 3)
If you've never stared off in the distance, then your life is a shame
and though I'll [D]never forget your face,
C G (fill 4)
sometimes i can't remember my name
[Bm]Hey M[C]rs. P[G]otter [D]don't cry
Hey Mrs. Potter I know why but
[Bm]Hey M[C]rs. P[G]otter [D]won[C]'t y[C/B]ou talk to[G] me
(fill 5)
[G]Well, there's a piece of Maria in eve[C]ry [D]song that I[G] sing
[G]And the price of a memory is the[C] memory of the s[D]orrow it[G] brings
And there is alw[Bm]ays one last light to tu[C]rn out and one last bell to [G]
ring
And the [D]last one out of the circus has t[C]o lock up everyt[G]hing
G C D G (fill 6)
Or the elephants will get out and forget to remember what you said
G C D G (fill 2)
And the ghosts of the childer world will linger inside your head
And the [Bm]ferris wheel junkies will [C]spin there forever ins[G]tead
D C G (fill 1 )
When I see you a blanket of stars covers me in my bed
[Bm]Hey M[C]rs. P[G]otter d[D]on't go
Hey Mrs. Potter I don't know but
[Bm]Hey [C]Mrs.[G] Pott[D]er wo[C]n't[C/B] you talk t[G]o me
(fill 7 )
[G]All the blue light reflections that c[C]olor my min[D]d when I sle[G]ep
[G]And the lovesick rejections that acc[C]ompany the c[D]ompany I k[G]eep
Bm C G (fill 8)
All the razor perceptions that cut just a little too deep
D C G (fill 9 )
Hey I can bleed as well as anyone, but I need someone to help me sleep
G C D G (fill 10)
So I throw my hand into the air and it swims in the beams
G C D G (fill 11)
It's just a brief interruption of the swirling dust sparkle jet stream
Well, I [Bm]know I don't know you and you're pr[C]obably not what you s[G]eem
But I'd [D]sure like to find out
So why don't you[C] climb down off that movie scr[G]een
[Bm]Hey [C]Mrs. P[G]otter do[D]n't turn
Hey Mrs. Potter I burn for you
[Bm]Hey [C]Mrs. P[G]otter[D] won[C]'t yo[C/B]u talk t[G]o me
[G]When the last king of Hollywood [C]shatters his gla[D]ss on the floo[G]r
and orde[G]rs anoth[D/F#]er
Well, I [Em]wonder what he d[D]id that [Bm]for
That's when I kn[Bm]ow that I have to get out cause [C]I have been there [G]
before
D C G (fill 12)
So I gave up my seat at the bar and I head for the door
G C D G (fill 13)
We drove out to the desert just to lie down beneath this bowl of stars
G C D G (fill 14)
We stand up in the palace like it's the last of the great pioneer town
bars
We[Bm] shout out these songs against the cla[C]ng of electric guit[G]ars
You can [D]see a million miles tonight But [C]you can't get very f[G]ar
D C G (fill 14)
Oh, you can see a million miles tonight But you can't get very far
[Bm]Hey M[C]rs.[G] Potter [D]I won't touch
Hey Mrs. Potter it's not much but
[Bm]Hey M[C]rs. [G]Pott[D]er w[C]on't[C/B] you talk t[G]o me
