(Intro)

Eb - Bbmin7

 

Eb              Bbm7

I lay down beside you:

            Eb                  Bbm7

I am a unicorn, you a virginal maid,

        Cm              Ebm

and I come in laughing play

Ebm Fm Ebm Ebm Dbm Eb

but, maybe, to be saved.

 

Eb                      Bbm7        

Peer through the backcloth:

        Eb              Bbm7

I am a character in the play.

            Cm              Ebm

The words I slur are pre-ordained,

Ebm Fm  Ebm Ebm Dbm Eb

we know them anyway.

 

Db                                  B        

Don't change your mind, don't be a fickle friend;

Db                                  Ebm

don't change your mind, don't pretend

    Dbm       Cm

to something false.

 

Eb              Bbm7        

Open the toy-box :

Eb                          Bbm7

You are Pandora, I am the World.

                    Cm                      Ebm

If you cross the stream, you never can return;

Ebm     Fm    Ebm Ebm Dbm   Eb

If you stay, you'll surely burn.

Db                                      B

Don't change your mind, don't come all orchid eyes;

Db                                  Ebm     Dbm      Cm

don't change your mind, don't disguise the fear you feel,

Cm  Bbm->Cm    Eb

it's real,      and you must

            Bbm7

guard your castle well,

                Eb                      Bbm7

for I am the lone wolf and the boar at bay.

                Cm                          Ebm

Grant me your Pax, you know we only live today,

Ebm Dbm Dbm Cm  Cm Bbm->Cm

and on, and on, and into

Eb  Bbm7

    "So long"

            Eb

It takes so long to drown,

                            Bbm7                  Cm 

it takes so very long to choke on the taste you'd spurned.

                                         Ebm

If you cross the stream you never can return,

Ebm Ebm Fm  Ebm     Ebm Dbm Eb

If you stay you'll surely burn.

Ebm Ebm Fm  Ebm     Ebm Dbm Eb

If you stay you'll surely burn.

Ebm Ebm Fm  Ebm     Ebm Dbm Cm

If you stay you'll surely burn.
