E5                                D5               G5   D5 E5

Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind.

E5                              D5            G5  D5  E5

People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time.


INTERLUDE:  E5  |  C5  D5  |  E5  |  E5  |


All day long, I think of things, but nothing seems to satisfy.

Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify.



E5                D5                  E5         D5   E5

Can you help me?  Thought you were my friend.  Oh, yeah!


I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find.

I can't see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind.




Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry.

Happiness I cannot feel, so love for me is so unreal.


And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state.

I tell you to enjoy life, I wish I could but it's too late.


E5   D5  G5  D5  E5  |  G5  D5  E5
