Goodbye Alice in Wonderland  Jewel

Intro: C G Bm C
Its [C]four in the [G]afternoon
I'm on a [Bm]flight leaving L[C]A
[C]Trying to think a[G]bout my life
My [Bm]youth scattered along the hi[C]ghway
[Am]Hotel rooms in [Em]headlights
[G]I've made a living with a [D]song
Just a [Em]guitar as my compan[C]ion
Wanting [G]desperately to be [D]loved
[Em]Fame[D] is filled with [G]spoiled children
[Em]They grow [D]fat on fan[G]tasy[Em]
[D]I guess that's why I'm [G]leaving
[D]I crave reality

So [G]good[C]bye [D]Alice in [G]Wonderland
Good[C]bye yellow brick [D]road
[G]There is a [C]difference between [D]dreaming and [G]pretending
I did not find [Em]paradise[C]
It was only a reflection[G]
Of my lonely mind [D]searching
For what was missing in my life

I'm embarassed to say
The rest is a rock and roll cliche
I hit the bottom when i reached the top
Never knew it was you
Who was breaking my heart
I thought you had to love me
But you did not
Yes, a heart can hallucinate
If its completely stuffed for life
Can even make monsters seem like
Angels from above
Forged my love like a weapon
Turned it against me like a knife
Broke my last heart string
But you opened up my eyes
So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
That was not love in your eyes
It was only a reflection
Of my lonely mind wanting
What was missing in my life

[Em]Dreaming is a good thing
Cause it [D]brings new things to life
[G]Pretending is an ending
That [C]perpetuates a lie
[Bm]Forgetting what you are
[C]Seeing for what you've been [D]told
[Em]And growing up is not the [D]answer to dreaming
Its [G]being able to under[C]stand the difference between
The [Bm]ones you can hold and the [C]ones that you've been [D]sold
[Em]Truth[D] is stranger than [G]fiction[Em]
This is [D]my chance to get it [G]right[Em]
[D]Life is much [G]better
With[D]out all of your pretty lies
So [G]good[C]bye [D]Alice in [G]Wonderland
You can [C]keep your yellow brick [D]road
[G]There is a [C]difference between [D]dreaming and [G]pretending
That was not love in your [Em]eyes[C]
It was only a reflection
[G]Of my lonely mind [D]wanting[C]
It was only a reflection
[G]Of my lonely [D]mind wishing
C Em(upward strum)
That you were what was missing from my life
