{title:Conversation Piece}

{subtitle:David Bowie}


I [Am]took this walk to ease my [G] mind

To find out what's gnawing at me [F]

Wouldn't think, to look at me,

that I've [Am]spent a lot of time in education

[G] It all seems so long ago

I'm a [Am]thinker, not a talker

[G]I've no-one to talk to, anyway


I [Am]can't see the road

for the [G]rain in my [F]eyes



I [Am]live above the grocers [G]store,

owned by an [F]Austrian

He often calls me down to eat

And he [Am]jokes about his broken English,

[G]tries to be a friend to me

But for [Am]all my years of reading conversation,

[G]I stand without a word to say


I [Am]can't see the bridge

for the [G]rain in my [F]eyes



And the [Am]world is full of [G]life

Full of folk who don't know [F]me

And they walk in twos or threes or more

While the [Am]light that shines above the grocers store

[G]investigates my face so rudely

And my [Am]essays lying scattered on the floor

[G]Fullfil their needs just by being there

And my hands shake, my head hurts,

my voice sticks inside my [F7]throat

I'm [Am]invisible and [G]dumb,

no-one will recall [F]me


And I [Am]can't see the water

through the [G]tears in my [F]ey-y-yes
