Verse
(celeste plays then guitar joins in) D                    G             C
There was a time when you were so young and walked in their way
D                           G                             C
They made you feel they loved you all seeing they say
D                           G                             C
You're going wrong if their game you don't play
D                           G                             C
And that the song I sing will lead you astray

Bridge  (play only B and G strings)

D5          D7  Gm      D5      D7      Gm
Unfeeling, feel lonely rejection
D5          D7  Gm      D5      D7      Gm
Unknowing, know your going wrong
 

Outro

A5                 C5         G5        A5
And they can't see that we're just trying to be and not what we seem
D          G    C       D                         A5
And even now believe, that it's not real and only a dream

(celeste ending can be played by alternate plucking of high E and G strings while holding A5 chord)
