Verse 1:
I[A]t's hidden [C]far away,
B[G]ut someday I may [D]tell.
T[A]he tale of metal [E]tangle,
W[Em]hen into your world [D]I fell.
W[A]ithout you now I [C]wander,
S[G]oaking secretly [D]afraid.
'[A]Cause in your grasp [E]the fears don't last,
A[Em]nd some of them have [D]stayed.
I[A] wheeled around [D]because I [E]didn't,
H[D]ear what you had [A]said.
A[A]nd saw you d[D]ancing with [E]Elihu,
U[D]p on Leemor's [A]bed.
A[A]nd I was [D]foggy rather [E]groggy,
Y[D]ou helped me to my[A] car.
T[A]he binding [D]belt enclosing [E]me,
A[D] sample in a j[A]ar.

Verse 2:
A[A]nd on the market stands [C]unfolding,
With all their [G]willies and their [D]wares.
I[A] shuffle by [E]alert but numb,
T[Em]o all the glances and [D]the glares.
A[A]nd I think of you [C]unheeding,
A[G]ll the times I raise [D]my cup,
I[A]t's now I know [E]that you knew,
T[Em]hat I'd soon end up, [D]end up.
(Repeat Chorus)
Y[A]ou tricked me like the [C]others,
And [D]now I don't [A]belong,
T[C]he simple smiles and [D]good times,
S[D]eem all [E]wrong.
