Silhouette

from Truth From Lies

(a) (asus2) (a) (asus2)

(aadd9) you watch me (amaj9) at the window
(a6) from your place on the couch (a)
(aadd9) you watch me pre- (amaj9) tending
That i am (a6) really looking out (a)
(d) you say: "come (a) here,
I can't see (esus) you in this light" (f#m)
But (d) i'm much (a) safer
Be- (esus) side the moon tonight (aadd9)

'cause when (asus2) i am a silhouette
(d) i have no fear (d a)
I can (d) love you from here (d a/e)
When (asus2) i am a silhouette
I can give (d) myself to you, (d a)
And you (d) never see through
(d) nev- (a/e) er (a) through (asus2) (a) (asus2)

(aadd9) don't come (amaj9) too close
Or you'll see (a6) my edge is rough (a)
(aadd9) and you'll make me (amaj9) wonder
(a6) if i will be enough (a)
(d) you'll make me wor- (a) ry
That (esus) somehow you will see (f#m)
That there is (d) always (a) something
(esus) small and trembling in (aadd9) me

But when (asus2) i am a silhouette
(d) i have no fear, (d a)
I can (d) love you from here (d a/e)
When (asus2) i am a silhouette
I can give (d) myself to you, (d a)
And you (d) never see through
(d) nev- (a/e) er (a) through (asus2) (a)

(d) (a/c#) (e) (f#m e/g# a) (d) (a) (esus) (aadd9)

(aadd9) no place to hide in your (amaj9) single bed
(a6) no look of mine that you (a) haven't read
(aadd9) i've always been an (amaj9) easy read
Just (a6) once i want to be a (a) mystery
(d) so though you tell (a) me
That (esus) it will be alright (f#m)
(d) i'm much (a) safer
Be- (esus) side the moon tonight (aadd9)

'cause when (asus2) i am a silhouette
(d) i have no fear (d a)
I can (d) love you from here (d a/e)

And you (d) never see through
(d) nev- (a/e) er (a) through (asus2) (a) (asus2)
