[Verse 1]
D              F#m7
    Silence in the house
G                        F#m7
    Balanced on the balcony
    Just a breath of wind could
D              A/C#       A7sus4    A7
    Set it all tumbling free

[Verse 2]
D                   F#m7
    Look into my throat
G                           F#m7
    Whoeverís singing isnít me
    Cos Iím a prisoner of
D               A/C#            A7sus4    A7
    Who all you listeners might be

Cos my soul is stolen
Taken in my shallow youth
And Iíd love you all to look but
               A7          Dmaj7
Hate if you mistook it for truth
My soul is stolen
I took it from a girl I knew
And I covered it with trinkets
        A7                             D
So that maybe you would think it was you

[Verse 3]
D              F#m7
Silence in the house
G                  F#m7
    Wherever can I be
    Iím on the rooftop calling
D               F#m7
    As all your souls are falling
G                A7             D
    Like rain into the heart of me
