Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


The Figurehead  Cure

[C5]Sharp and open, [Bb5]leave me alone and sl[F5]eeping less every nig[G#5]ht
As the [C5]days become heavier and [Bb5]weighted
Waiting [F5]in the cold light [G#5]
A noise, a [C5]scream tears my clothes as the [Bb5]figurines tighten [F5]
With spiders in[G#5]side them
And dust on the [C5]lips of a vision of [Bb5]hell
I laughed in the [F5]mirror for the [G#5]first time in a year.

Verse 2: *1:23*

A [C5]hundred other words [Bb5]blind me with your [F5]purity   [G#5]
Like an [C5]old painted doll in the [Bb5]throes of dance I thi[F5]nk about tomorrow     [G#5]
Please let me [C5]sleep as I slip down the wi[B5b]ndow fre[F5]shly squashed fly      [G#5]
You mean [C5]nothing[Bb5], you mean [F5]nothing.  [G#5]

[C5]Too many secrets, [Bb5]too many lies wr[F5]iting with hatred     [G#5]

Touched her [Bb5]eyes, pressed my [F5]stained face
