A = A add9 (no 3rd) B = B add9 (no 3rd) C = C add9 (no 3rd)
INTRO: Em Em I. there was a house of mirrors. you lived there for a while. A you had mirrors in the bathroom, mirrors in the bedroom, B mirrors in the den, C mirrors in your men. Em you just looked out the window, searching for yourself. B someday you will learn, C someday you will learn Em to appreciate me. Em II. the scenery was ugly: the lawn was never cut, A a banged up Oldsmobile sitting out front. B you wouldn't shut the curtains C or spray the windows black. Em you just said, "that ain't me. I don't look like that." B someday you will learn, C someday you will learn Em to appreciate me. INSTRUMENTAL: like verse Em III. you went to the airport to find another window A with a better view, to find a better you. B now your hands can't touch each other, C you can't taste your own mouth, Em you can't hear your own voice, can't hear your own voice. B you just look out the window C and try to remember Em what mirrors were like. Em IV. you can talk to a statue, tell him of your woes; A explain William Shakespeare to a dog with furry toes; B tell a plant all about C nuclear waste; Em fall for a farm boy and kiss his hairy face. B oh, someday you will learn, C someday you will learn Em to appreciate me. INSTRUMENTAL: like verse (twice) Em V. close your eyes one by one. A shut them so you see no one. B listen to your heartbeat, C look inside yourself. Em don't look out the window, don't look somewhere else. B someday you will learn, C someday you will learn Em to appreciate you. B ENDING: someday you will learn, C someday you will learn Em to appreciate you. B C Em oooh------.
