 Am
 He wants to die in a lake in Geneva
 Bdim7
The mountains can cover the shape of his nose
 Am
 He wants to die where nobody can see him
 Bdim7
But the beauty of his death will carry on so
 AmBdim7
 I don't believe him 

 Am
He greets me with kisses when good days deceive him
 Bdim7
And sometimes we're scorned and sometimes I believe him
 Am
And sometimes I'm convinced that my friends think I'm crazy
 Bdim7
Get scared and call him, but he's usually hazy
 Am
At 1 in the morning, the day is not ended
 Bdim7
By 2 he is scared that sleep is no friend
 Am
By 4 he will drink but he cannot feel it
 Bdim7
 Sleep will not come because sleep does not will it
 AmBdim7
And I don't believe him
 AmBdim7
Morning is mocking me    

 Am
wander the streets, avoiding them eats
 Bdim7
Till ring on my finger slips to the ground
A gift to the gutter, a gift to the city
The veins of which have broken me down
And I don't believe him
Morning is mocking me

 AmGAmG
The gods that he believes      
 AmGAmG
never fail to amaze me      
He believes in the love in his god of all things
But I find him wrapped up in all manner of sins
The drugs that deceive him and the girls that believe him
 AmG
 I can't control you, I don't know you well
 FBdim7
 These are the reasons I think that you're ill
 AmG
 I can't control you, I don't know you well
 FBdim7
 These are the reasons I think that you're ill

 AmBdim7
And since last that we parted last that i saw him
down by a river, silent and hardened
Morning was mocking us, blood hit the sky
I was just happy, my manic and I
He couldn't see me; the sun was in his eyes

Am? Bdim7? F G?
And birds were singing to calm us down
Am? Bdim7? F E
And birds were singing to calm us down

 AmG
 And I'm sorry young man, I cannot be your friend.
I don't believe in a fairytale end
I don't keep my head up all of the time
I find it dull when my heart meets my mind
 AmG
 And I hardly know you, I think I can tell
 FBdim7
 These are the reasons I think that we're ill
 AmG
 I hardly know you, I think I can tell
 FBdim7
 These are the reasons I think that I'm ill

 AmGAmGAmGAmG
And the gods that he believes    never fail to disappoint me       
And the gods that he believes never fail to disappoint me

 AmBdim7AmBdim7
My nihilist, my happy man, my manic and I
Am? Bdim7? F? E
Have no plans to move on

Am? G? F Bdim7
And the birds are singing to calm us down
Am? G? F E
And the birds are singing to calm us down

 Am
