[Intro]
C Em D
C Em D
C Em D
D C Em G

[Verse 1]
        C               Em
You wait for a silence
   G             D
I wait for a word
          C                  Em
Lying next to your frame
  G          D
Girl unobserved
          C                 Em
You change your position
                G        D
You're changing me
      C                 Em
Casting these shadows
            D                   G
Where they shouldn't be

[Pre-Chorus]
C                Em
We're interrupted
            G              D
By the heat of the sun
C                  Em
Trying to prevent
              G           D
What's already begun
C                   Em
You're just a body
            G           D
I can smell your skin
        C              Em
And when I feel it
               D       G
You're wearing thin

[Chorus]
      Em        C D
But I've got a plan
                  D                Em
Why don't you be the artist
         C                      G
And make me out of clay?
                  D               Em
Why don't you be the writer
    C                        G
Decide the words I say?
                  Em      G
Cause I'd rather pretend
              D                    Em
I'll still be there at the end
              C                 Em
Only it's too hard to ask
                 D              G
Won't you try to help me?

[Verse 2]
C                 Em
Sat on your sofa
      G                 D
It's all broken springs
          C                Em
This isn't the place for
             G          D
Those violin strings
   C                Em
I try out a smile
          G           D
And I aim it at you
         C                  Em
You must have missed it
           D      G
You always do

[Chorus]
       Em      C  D
But I've got a plan
      D                Em
Why don't you be the artist
         C                      G
And make me out of clay?
                  D                 Em
Why don't you be the writer
    C                        G
Decide the words I say?
                  Em      G
Cause I'd rather pretend
             D                    Em
I'll still be there at the end
               C                Em
Only it's too hard to ask
                 D              G
Won't you try to help me?
