The Muse by Darren Criss

Intro: Gm

Verse:
Gm                        Cm             Csus4
You're a diamond that I'm afraid to touch
Gm                                Cm
You're damn near flawless and I'm sure you'd cut
      Eb                    F 
on my eyes, my hands, my head, my heart
    F#dim            Gm 
You tear this canvas skin apart
    F#dim           D7              Gm     F F#dim Gm
Oh, what a waste of human art that'd be

Gm                           Cm
You're a dungeon, but you're made of glass
Gm                     Cm
Your prisoners have no idea they're trapped
           Eb            F
'cause you look so beautiful inside
   F#dim              Gm
It makes us feel like we're alive
     F#dim           D7                 G
but lord knows we'll never survive your walls

Chorus:
G              Cm             G
But didn't you know that all along
           Cm                 G
You didn't need to hear your song
                 Cm
and if you don't know that 
         Eb               Ebm     F Gm
then you might as well be dead

Interlude: Gm F Gm

Verse:
Gm                           Cm           Csus4 Cm
Medusa's child preserved her former looks
Gm
She kept her out of all the storybooks
        Eb              F
just to get back at all of the men
    F#dim               Gm
who have tried time and time again
   F#dim              D7             Gm     F F#dim Gm
to claim the right of her demise and end

Gm                               Cm
A million years go by and you're still around
Gm                         Cm
You're knocking us off our feet; you're knocking us down
       Eb                F
but we still can't leave you alone
    F#dim            Gm
The way you move one would be prone
   F#dim              D7           G
to want to be turned into stone by you

Chorus:
G              Cm             G
But didn't you know that all along
           Cm                 G
You didn't need to hear your song
                 Cm
and if you don't know that 
         Eb               Ebm
then you might as well be dead

Bridge:
Bb          F         Eb
You make me feel so alive
         Dm                  Cm
but its consequence: I want to be dead
Bb     F        Eb
Was it how you arrived?
        Dm             Cm             Eb
I can't tell or was it in the way you left...
            Gm
us.... here?

Instrumental: Gm F Cm Eb Ebm

Chorus:
G              Cm             G
But didn't you know that all along
           Cm                 G
You didn't need to hear your song
                 Cm
and if you don't know that 
         Eb               Ebm
then you might as well be, you might as well, oh

G          Cm                G
You didn't need to hear your song
                Cm           G
'cause you just knew it all along
           Cm
You didn't know that so
    Eb             Ebm              (Gm)
you might as well, might as well be dead
