Bad Mans Song

Tears For Fears

 G
 Heard every word that was said that night
 FCFG
When the light of the world put the world to right
 F
 Here's to the boys back in 628
 CFCG
Where an ear to the wall was a twist of fate
 Am
 I will shine a blinding light
 Bb
 Through those hearts as black as night
 C
 Sticks and stones may break my bones
 GFG
But at least the seeds of love will be sown
 Fmaj7
 Once in awhile when I feel no shame
 G
I get down on my knees and I pray for rain
 Fmaj7
The breeze blows gently while I state my case
 G
There'll be certain men waiting just to scratch my face
 Fmaj7
 Hand on my heart I will make a stand
 G
For the life and the times of the mirror man
 FFmaj7G
 In my head, there is a mirror
 FFmaj7G
 When I've been bad,  I've been wrong
 FFmaj7G
 Food for the saints that are quick to judge me
 Bb
 Hope for a bad man
 FG
 This is the badman's song
 Fmaj7
 Guilt in the frame of the looking-glass
 G
Puts a shine on the mind where reflections pass
 Fmaj7
Where the jigsaw pieces of a broken man
 G
 Try and fit themselves together again
 Fmaj7
 Lies in disguise in the name of trust
 G
Put your head in the sand it will turn to dust
 Fmaj7
 What's your problem ? What's your curse ?
 G
 Won't it make the matter worse ?

 FFmaj7G
 In my head, there is a mirror
 FFmaj7G
 When I've been bad, I've been wrong
 FFmaj7G
 Food for the saints that are quick to judge me
 Bb
 Hope for a bad man
 FG
 This is the bad man's song

 Bb
They say faith can move move mountains
 G
 Fire can cleanse your soul
 Bb
 Faith can move mountains
 G
 But mind over matter won't you stop all your chatter

(Piano solo)

 Fmaj7
 Sweet talking boys who can do no wrong
 G
When the stories are tall as the day is long
 Fmaj7
With such a thin drawn between friend and foe
 G
 Lord help me now and bless my soul
 Fmaj7
 Look at yourself - See how you lie
 G
Your hands start shaking and you don't know why
 Fmaj7
 Look at yourself - See how you lie
 G
Your hands start shaking and you don't know why

 FFmaj7G
 Food for the saints that are quick to judge me
 Bb
 Hope for a bad man
 FG
 This is the badman's song
