[D5](intro[D7sus])[Em7] [Am(4)] [-] [G/D] [-] [D5]
[D5]Laughing in a [D7sus]crown of jewels, [Em7]numbness from a [Am4]scep[-]te[G/D]r's [-]wo[D5]und
[D5]Toss and turn, I [D7sus]spin and learn, [Em7]catch yourself b[Am4-G/D]efore yo[-]u [D5]burn
[D5]Jokers dance before [D7sus]the king, [Em7]jangling beads, a s[Am4-G/D-D5]ilver ring
[D5]Close your eyes and ba[D7sus]re the sound, [Em7]jumping up, f[Am4-G/D-D5]alling down
[A]Falling, falling, f[C(9)]alling, falling d[D]own[Am(4)] [-] [G/D] [-] [D5]
[A]Look yourself in the e[C(9)]ye before you dr[D]own[Am(4)] [-] [G/D] [-] [D5]
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/i/indigo_girls/center_stage_crd.html )
Royal rebels discover you; trust? you turn, there is no truth
And circle, circle, why are you scared, why a smile instead of tears?
I'm gulping smoke, I fade away, figures floating down to lay
Meet the joker and the thief, the king and queen, but no relief
Falling, falling, falling, falling down
Look yourself in the eye before you drown
Falling, falling, falling, Falling down
(The king is in his counting house, counting out his money)
Look yourself in the eye before you drown
(The queen is in her parlor eating bread and honey)
(Guitar solo: same chords as verse)
I cross myself before I die, and the leaping man, he asked me why
Well your rhythm is off, I reply, Now you must dance the dance that you imply
Your [D5]actions will follow you f[D7sus]ull circle round, your [Em7]actions will follow..[D5].
Your [D5]actions will follow you f[D7sus]ull circle round, your [Em7]actions will follow..[D5].
Your [D5]actions will follow you f[D7sus]ull circle round, your [Em7]actions will follow..[D5].
Your [D5]actions will follow you f[D7sus]ull circle round, the [Em7]higher the leap
 
 D5 Am(4)-G/D-D5 Am(4)-G/D-D5 Am(4)-G/D-D5

I said, the harder the ground
