Telling Stories  Tracy Chapman







[Em]There is fiction in the space be[C]tween [G]lines on a page, a [D]memory
[Em]Write it down, but it doesn't [C]mean you're [G]not just telling [D]stories
(Em C G D twice)
[Em]There is fiction in the space be[C]tween [G]you and re[D]ality
[Em]You would do and say an[C]ything to make your[G] everyday life seem[D] less mundane
[Em]There is fiction in the space b[C]etween[G] you and[D] me.
( Em C G D twice )
[Em]There's a science fiction in the space be[C]tween [G]you and [D]me
[Em]A fabrication, grand [C]scheme. [G]I am the scary [D]monster
[Em]Need to say it as I leave the[C] scene in my[G] spaceship I am[D] laughing
[Em]Your remembrance of a bad [C]dream there's [G]no one but you [D]standing.
( repeat Em C G D twice )
[D]Feel the pity and the pain f[C]or the ones who [G]do not speak
[D]Back the words you get respect and compas[C]sion and for [G]posterity
[C]Spread the words and [Em]make believe there [G]is truth in[D] the space b[Em]etween. (Em 4 bars)
[Em]There is fiction in the space bet[C]ween y[G]ou and e[D]verybody
[Em]Give us all what we[C] need. Give us[G] one more sad, so[D]rdid story.
[Em]In the fiction of the space be[C]tween [G]sometimes a lie is[D] the best thing
Em C G D (repeat Em C G D)
sometimes a lie is the best thing
is the best thing (repeat)
