[Verse 1]
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F# G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Em chordEm
I was never one for singing what I really feel
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F# D7 chordD7 D7sus4 chordD7sus4 D7 chordD7
Except tonight I'm bringing everything I know that's real

[Chorus]
G chordG D chordD /F# Dm chordDm /F
Stars they come and go they come fast or slow
E7 chordE7 Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G
They go like the last light of the sun all in a blaze
D7sus chordD7sus /F# D7sus chordD7sus /F#
And all you see is glory
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7
Hey but it gets lonely there when there's no one here to share
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F# D7 chordD7 D7sus2 chordD7sus2 D7 chordD7
We can shake it away if you'll hear a story

[Verse 2]
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7
People lust for fame like athletes in a game we break our collarbones
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G
and come up swinging some of us are downed
D7sus chordD7sus /F# D7sus chordD7sus /F#
some of us are crowned and some are lost and never found
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7 Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G
But most have seen it all they live their lives in sad cafes and music halls
D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F# D7 chordD7 D7sus4 chordD7sus4 D7 chordD7
They always come up singing
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7
Some make it when they're young before the world has done its dirty job
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F# D7 chordD7
and later on someone will say You've had your day now you must make way
D7sus4 chordD7sus4 D7 chordD7 G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7
But they'll never know the pain of living with a name you never owned
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F#
or the many years forgetting what you know too well

[Bridge]
Em chordEm Em/D# chordEm/D# Em/D chordEm/D
That the ones who gave the crown have been let down
Em/C# chordEm/C# Cmaj7 chordCmaj7 D7 chordD7 D7sus4 chordD7sus4 D7 chordD7
You try to make amends without defending

[Verse 3]
G chordG D chordD /F# Dm chordDm /F
Perhaps pretending you never saw the eyes of grown men of twenty-five
E7 chordE7 Am chordAm
that follow as you walk and ask for photographs
Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus chordD7sus /F# D7sus chordD7sus /F#
Or kiss you on the cheek and you never can believe they really loved you
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F#
Some make it when they're old
Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7 Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G
Perhaps they have a soul they're not afraid to bare
D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F# D7 chordD7 D7sus2 chordD7sus2 D7 chordD7
or perhaps there's nothing there

[Chorus]
G chordG D chordD /F# Dm chordDm /F
Stars they come and go they come fast or slow
E7 chordE7 Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G
They go like the last light of the sun all in a blaze
D7sus chordD7sus /F# D7sus chordD7sus /F#
And all you see is glory
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7 Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G
But most have seen it all they live their lives in sad cafes and music halls
D7sus chordD7sus /F# D7sus chordD7sus /F#
They always have a story

[Verse 4]
G chordG D chordD /F# Dm chordDm /F
Some women have a body men will want to see
E7 chordE7
and so they put it on display
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F# D7sus2 chordD7sus2
Some people play a fine guitar I could listen to them play all day
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7
Some ladies really move across the stage and gee they sure can dance
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F#
I guess I could learn how if I gave it half a chance
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7
But I always feel so funny when my body tries to soar
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F#
And I seem to always worry about missing the next chord
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7
I guess there isn't anything to put up on display
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F#
Except the tunes and whatever else I say

[Bridge]
Em chordEm Em/D# chordEm/D# Em/D chordEm/D Em/C# chordEm/C#
But anyway that isn't really what I meant to say
Cmaj7 chordCmaj7 D7sus4 chordD7sus4
I meant to tell a story I live from day to day

[Chorus]
G chordG D chordD /F# Dm chordDm /F
Stars they come and go they come fast or slow
E7 chordE7 Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G
They go like the last light of the sun all in a blaze
D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F# D7/F# chordD7/F#
And all you see is glory
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7 Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G
But most have seen it all they live their lives in sad cafes and music halls
D7sus chordD7sus /F#
And we always have a story

[Verse 5]
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7
So if you don't lose patience with my fumbling around
Am chordAm Am7/G chordAm7/G D7sus2 chordD7sus2/F#
I'll come up singing for you
G chordG D6/F# chordD6/F# Dm6/F chordDm6/F E7 chordE7
even when I'm down

[Outro]
