WHAT KIND OF MAN verse/chorus: G C x3 Em D pre-chorus: Am /B C G Bm C Cm outro: G Gaug C Cm don't you decide or make up your mind the sun's left behind when the earth rolls on & i recognize all the words still inside the tears in your eyes so i'll be gone tonight CH. put your heart in my hand what kind of man waits 'til the end? to let it begin & we will suffer again what kind of man (x2) what kind of man... a love-like disease the antitheses & if i say please will you forget? the light of belief reveals stark relief i'm not just a thief not yet...not yet CH. OUTRO. what kind of man?..

WE NEVER GET THE HEART WE WANT V: Am F C (/B) PRE: F Am CH: C F C F C F C C OUT: C F C C brave & young when we spoke side by side i kept the shirt that i wore when you cried someday soon all the changes you deny will show through despite what you do to hide PRE & then we will come around our ship come in or run aground the deadly sin the smallest sound will begin... CH we cannot regret & never get the heart we want the ghost of a chance there's nowhere left for it to haunt but i watch you with a loving eye every day is blue & grey when you say goodbye some goodbyes are just retreats through my window to the street i can watch you in defeat & still say... we don't give up yet & never get the heart we want the ghost of a chance there's nowhere left for it to haunt (solo over verse) you don't know me like you should all my faults come across as something good but the truth is not entire i'm not worth being a liar i'm just smoke, i'm no fire i'm no hope... 1st CH 2nd CH OUTRO there's nowhere left for it to haunt...

TELL ME WHAT YOU'VE DONE verse: A E A (E B) chorus: E (C#m B) intro: E blame your checkered past excuses come at last...too fast you will hide down deep everything you believe there's still a heart sewn on your sleeve you cannot deceive...anyone [chorus] tell me what you've done living hard under the gun tell me what you've done x2 this storm will tear these tattered sails the sea come on as tough as nails it never fails you will betray yourself with a second thought all the secrets that you've got you will get caught...by one [ch] [solo over verse] [build on E] terrible as the wild unknown you're reaching out but you're alone, you're always alone, oh...

SCARECROW verse: D6 D6 G A7 chorus: G A7 D6 G bridge: (C G D6 D6) x 2 C G D6 Em C G D6 D6 G A7 D6 D6 [xx0202] hey scarecrow i'm not gonna hang around to watch you rust blind sunshine beating down from dawn 'til dusk has put the fear of god beneath my wing these farmer's daughter's hearts will hear me sing that freedom is a place out in the fields CH. and underneath the moonlight between the cornrows high that's where they steal some sleepy towns they never seem to sleep enough to dream and everybody leaves at age eighteen half return with hard and mangled hearts the other half return as spare parts they remember i'm out in the fields (CH.) BR. the waterfall & the old mill they turned when you were born and they are turning still the whispered secret rumour song... it used to strike you dumb but now you sing along now you sing along and freedom is a place out in the fields CH. and underneath the moonlight between the cornrows high they climb down from their bedrooms rubbing sleep from their eyes they lie amongst the green & gold and watch the dark blue sky out in the fields that's where they steal.

EXCEPTION TO THE RULE verse: G G Dm Dm C C G D chorus: (B7 B7 C G) x2 C G C B7 these old friends, the same equations these subtle coffins you cut them out, you cut them out there are mountains. you go around them & in the end there is no doubt, there is no doubt [instr. verse] the old trail you travel full sail it echoes one tale: a story told, a story told [chorus] but this exception to the rule will prove me right & no temptation forces you to take my side all the sadness that you hide & you're telling me you tried it once... put down the image of your hometown the sentimental say, now is not the time, it's not the time those last looks, all the time that you took & everyone knows one crook & you were mine, & you were mine [chorus] [instr. verse x2] [chorus] but this exception to the rule will prove me right & no temptation forces you to take my side your innocence, your pride all the sadness that you hide & you're telling me you tried & tried...

AMELIA, I'VE SEEN OTHER GIRLS verse: Em C D G Em C D D chorus: Am C G D we can't be friends so it's best to pretend we never were, it depends a point of view is a sound defense the charms that you save pointing out all you gave but the same old behaviour digs the same old grave [chorus] amelia, i've seen other girls be as mean & i guess that coming clean might have changed what might have been bless you i've heard each italicized word who could miss it? i'm sure the bitter pill was the cure don't you mess with my head i will lie in the bed that i made & the wedding will happen instead [ch] [verse solo] [ch] x2 end on Em riff
