|Abmaj7 |Eb

Don't pretend that you know me

|Ab Eb |F |Ab/F F |C

'Cause I don't even know myself, ooh, I don't know myself

 

[repeat verse pattern]

 

|F |Bb |F Fsus4|F |

I don't mind if you try once in a while

|F |Bb |F |F |

And I don't mind if I cry once in a while

|Bb |Eb |Bb Bbsus4|Bb |

The doors aren't shut as tight as they might seem

|F |Bb |F Fsus4|F

And I'm just tryin' to fight my way out of this dream

 

[repeat verse pattern]

 

Don't listen to the words I say

Weighing up if I'm enlightened

Don't shiver as you pass me by

'Cause mister, I'm the one who's frightened

The police just came and left

They wanted me and no one else

Don't pretend that you know me

'Cause I don't even know myself

I said I don't know myself

 

I don't mind if you try

And I don't mind if I cry once in a while

The doors aren't shut as tight as they might seem

And I'm just tryin' to fight my way out of this dream

 

[repeat verse pattern for interlude]

 

|F |Bb

Do you remember me?

|F |Bb

I don't remember you

|F |Bb

Do you still love me?

|F |Bb

You know I think you do

|C |Bb F6/A G|

I have been gone

|6------------5------3---|

 

There's only five who know my real name

My mother don't believe they know it

What she called me is the way I'm staying

And no one will ever blow it

Come on all of you big boys

Come on all of you elves

Don't pretend that you know me

'Cause I don't even know myself

I said I don't know myself

 

I don't mind if you try once in a while

And I don't mind if I cry once in a while
