Building A Mystery  Sarah McLachlan

   [Em]You come out at night [Cadd9]
   [G]that's when the [D]energy comes
   [Em]and the dark side's light[Cadd9]
   [G]and the vampires [D]roam
   [Em]you strut your [Cadd9]rasta wear
   [G]and your suicide [D]poem
   [Em]and a cross from a [Cadd9]faith
   that died [G]before [D]Jesus [A]came
   [C]you're building a [D]mystery

   [Em]You live in a [Cadd9]church
   [G]where you sleep with [D]voodoo dolls
   [Em]and you won't give up the se[Cadd9]arch
   [G]for the ghosts in the [D]halls
   [Em]you wear sandals i[Cadd9]n the snow
   [G]and a smile that won't w[D]ash away
   [Em]can you look out the w[Cadd9]indow
   [G]without your shadow getting in the [Cadd9]way
   [Am]oh you're so beautiful
   [Cadd9]with an edge and a charm
   [Am]but so careful
   [Cadd9]when I'm in your a[D]rms

Em, Cadd9,G,D
'Cause you're working
building a mystery
holding on and holding it in
yeah you're working
building a mystery
and choosing so carefully

Chords are the same as the first verse

You woke up screaming aloud
a prayer from your secret god
you feed off our fears
and hold back your tears

Give us a tantrum
and a know it all grin
just when we need one
when the evening's thin

Am, Cadd9, Am, Cadd9,D
Oh you're a beautiful
a beautiful fucked up man
you're setting up your
razor wire shrine.
