 (intro)                 

 EmDCD
From baby to best with no second test
 CDCD
   Those little storms destroy you  
 EmDCD
 Here is the fame they promised to give you
 CDCD
   Taking the place of my hand now  
 GGDD
Well, did you try to be true?  
 GDCD
What separates me from you?     
 GDGD
What separates me from you now?     
Did you borrow the soul, the soul that you sell now?
What does your conscience tell you?
Where are the demons of your desire?
Why does my love destroy you?
I said I tried to be true,
What separates me from you?
 GCDD
I said I tried, tried to be true  
 GDCD
What separates me from you now?     
 GDGD
What separates me from you now?     

(Guitar solo:)

Am Em C | G | C D | D C D C |
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

Am Em C | G | C D | | D |

So where is the fame, where is the fortune?
Where is the world that denies you?
Who is to blame when my heart finally forfeits
To a road that will only misguide you?
Well did we try to be true?
What separates me from you?
Well did we try, try to be true?
What separates me from you?
What separates me from you now?

(Guitar solo again)

 EmDCDEmDCD
bought my love a hunger                 more precious than a stone  
(Where is the world that denies you)
 EmDCDEmDCD
 All these fatal flowers,                          did I misguide you?  
(Where is the world that denies you)
