E, D, Gbm, A


     D           Gbm
You wait for a silence
   A          E
I wait for a word
       D            Gbm
Lying next to your frame
 A       E
Girl unobserved
      D           Gbm
You change your position
          A     E
You're changing me
   D            Gbm
Casting these shadows
       E             A
Where they shouldn't be


D           Gbm
We're interrupted
        A          E
By the heat of the sun
D           Gbm
Trying to prevent
         A       E
What's already begun
D              Gbm
You're just a body
        A        E
I can smell your skin
     D          Gbm
And when I feel it
         E      A
You're wearing thin


     Gbm      D  E
But I've got a plan
           E           Gbm
Why don't you be the artist
     D             A
And make me out of clay?
           E           Gbm
Why don't you be the writer
  D                A
Decide the words I say?
            Gbm     A
Cause I'd rather pretend
            E               Gbm
I'll still be there at the end
           D           Gbm
Only it's too hard to ask
           E          A
Won't you try to help me?


D           Gbm
Sat on your sofa
     A            E
It's all broken springs
       D           Gbm
This isn't the place for
        A        E
Those violin strings
   D           Gbm
I try out a smile
      A         E
And I aim it at you
     D           Gbm
You must have missed it
       E    A
You always do



     Gbm      D  E
But I've got a plan
   E           Gbm
Why don't you be the artist
     D             A
And make me out of clay?
           E           Gbm
Why don't you be the writer
  D                A
Decide the words I say?
            Gbm     A
Cause I'd rather pretend
            E               Gbm
I'll still be there at the end
           D           Gbm
Only it's too hard to ask
           E          A
Won't you try to help me?

 D
You wait
        Gbm
I wait
Gbm         E
Casting shadows
    E
Interrupted


 D
You wait
        Gbm
I wait
Gbm         E
Casting shadows
    E
Interrupted



 D
You wait
        Gbm
I wait
Gbm         E
Casting shadows
    E
Interrupted


 D
You wait
        Gbm
I wait
Gbm         E
Casting shadows



     Gbm      D  E
But I've got a plan
         E           Gbm
Why don't you be the artist
     D             A
And make me out of clay?
           E           Gbm
Why don't you be the writer
  D                A
Decide the words I say?
            Gbm     A
Cause I'd rather pretend
            E               Gbm
I'll still be there at the end

           D           Gbm
Only it's too hard to ask
           E          A
Won't you try to help me?

One strum or pick

        E           Gbm
Why don't you be the artist
     D             A
And make me out of clay?
           E           Gbm
Why don't you be the writer
  D                A
Decide the words I say?
            Gbm     A
Cause I'd rather pretend
            E               Gbm
I'll still be there at the end

           D           Gbm
Only it's too hard to ask
           E          A
Won't you try to help me?

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
