Chords for : The Cure - The Figurehead
 
 --------------------------------------

Guitar ONE (power chords) :
Intro : C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 C5 Bb5 F5 G#5
[C5]Sharp and open, [Bb5]leave me alone
And [F5]sleeping less every [G#5]night
As the [C5]days become heavier and [Bb5]weighted
Waiting [F5]in the cold light[G#5]
A noise, a [C5]scream tears my clothes as the [Bb5]figurines tighten[F5]
With spiders in[G#5]side them
And dust on the [C5]lips of a vision of [Bb5]hell
I laughed in the [F5]mirror for the [G#5]first time in a year.
C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 1)
A [C5]hundred other words [Bb5]blind me with your [F5]purity[G#5]
Like an [C5]old painted doll in the [Bb5]throes of dance
I [F5]think about tomorrow[G#5]
Please let me [C5]sleep
As I slip down the [Bb5]window
[F5]Freshly sqashed fly[G#5]
You mean [C5]nothing[Bb5], you mean [F5]nothing.[G#5]
C5 F#5 C5 F#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 3)
C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 }*4 (Rhythm Figure 1 twice, then 6, then 1 again)
I can [C5]lose myself in [Bb5]Chinese art and A[F5]merican girls[G#5]
All the [C5]time
Lose me in the [B5b]dark
Please do it [F5]right[G#5]
Running into the [C5]night
I will lose my[Bb5]self tomorrow
[F5]Crimson pain, my [G#5]heart explodes
My [C5]memory in a [Bb5]fire
And someone will [F5]listen
At [G#5]least for a short while.
C5 F#5 C5 F#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 3)
Eb5 F#5 Eb5 F#5 }*2 (with Rhythm Figure 4)
F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 (with Rhythm Figure 5 - with every F5)
(I can [F5]never say no)
I can [F5]never say no to [F5]anyone but you.
C5 Bb5 F5 G#5 }*4 (with Rhythm Figure 2 twice, then 6, then 2 again)
[C5]Too many secrets, [Bb5]too many lies
[F5]Writhing with hatred[G#5]
[C5]Too many secrets, [Bb5]please make it good tonight[F5] [G#5]
But the [C5]same image haunts me
In [Bb5]sequence, in despair of time[F5]
I will [G#5]never be clean ag[C5]ain
Touched her [Bb5]eyes, pressed my [F5]stained face
I will [G#5]never be clean ag[C5]ain (with Rhythm Figure 1)
Touch her [Bb5]eyes, press my [F5]stained face
I will [G#5]never be clean ag[C5]ain[Bb5] [F5]
I will [G#5]never be clean ag[C5]ain[Bb5] [F5]
I will [G#5]never be clean ag[C5]ain[Bb5] [F5]
I will [G#5]never be clean again.
