Confusion  Elliott Smith

[G]                [A]                                       [G]  [B]  [Em]                                               


[G]funny you swear you got nowhere special to g[A]o
but I know you [Am]will, before too long[D]   [C]
[G]always there, standing there
staring at the hole in the ro[A]be
like it was a [Am]place somebody would [D]go[C]

G D Am (Am/E)? G B Em
con-fusion is king, the talk of your town
[G]with the hollywood design,[A] knowing everyone[Am]
would you cover mine?[G]  [B]  [Em]

[G]you spoke softer than anybody i ever heard[A]
softer than the vel-vet [Am]in your hair[D]  [C]
[G]tying back black laughin' back (?), black as a bird[A]
i live in a cage[Am], and i could take you [D]the[C]re

G D Am (Am/E)? G B Em
con-fusion is king, the talk of your town
[G]streets, i'm living with the p[A]ain
this is what you see [Am]always looking dow[G]n [B]  [Em]

[G]hanging out, let her (?) can't tell how to be[A]have
with her on the stage[Am] i hear your ser[D]m [C](?)
[G]animals painted in the dark on the walls of the [A]cage
pictures i [Am]wish you just f[D]org[C]et

G D Am (Am/E)? G B Em
con-fusion is king, the talk of your town
[G]I don't know if you [A]care the meaning of the [Am]word
maybe just yourself    [G]  [B]  [Em]

[G]little things trigger big problems you can wipe out a [A]stain
maybe i dest[Am]roy what makes you [D]sa[C]d
[G]if you're rid of so many minds buried that you never relay     [A]
until your body's n[Am]umb and it's all too [D]ba[C]d

G D Am (Am/E)? G B Em
con-fusion is king, the talk of the town

[G]i don't know how to [A]speak it
i don't know how to help[Am] you
i'll just be around [G]  [B]  [Em]   [Em]   [Em]
[G]i don't know how to [A]speak
i don't know how to he[Am]lp
i'll just be aroun[G]d [B]  [Em]

i think it is not exactly right...but it sounds near to the "La Zona Rosa, Austin 5-6-00"-recording
