{intro} 
 

     E5      D5         C5         D5 
From baby to best with no second test 
C5              D5           C5      D5 
  Those little storms destroy you 
E5          D5         C5           D5 
Here is the fame they promised to give you 
C5            D5            C5       D5 
  Taking the place of my hand now 
              G5  G5      D5     D5  
Well, did you try to be true? 
               G5       D5    C5  D5 
What separates me from you? 
               G5       D5        G5  D5 
What separates me from you now? 
  
Did you borrow the soul, the soul that you sell now? 

What does your conscience tell you?  

Where are the demons of your desire? 

Why does my love destroy you? 
  
I said I tried to be true, 

What separates me from you? 
         G5               C5  D5    D5 
I said I tried, tried to be true 
               G5       D5        C5  D5 
What separates me from you now? 
               G5       D5        G5  D5 
What separates me from you now? 
 
{Guitar solo:} 
A5        E5  C5  |               G5  |           C5   D5  |   D5   C5 D5   C5    |  
^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^ 
A5        E5  C5  |               G5  |           C5   D5  |          |  D5       |  
^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^    ^ ^ ^ ^  ^ ^ ^ ^ 
  
So where is the fame, where is the fortune? 

Where is the world that denies you? 

Who is to blame when my heart finally forfeits 

To a road that will only misguide you? 
  
Well did we try to be true? 

What separates me from you? 

Well did we try, try to be true? 

What separates me from you? 

What separates me from you now? 
 
{Guitar solo again} 
  E5         D5      C5             D5            E5         D5      C5   D5  
I bought my love a hunger                 more precious than a stone 

                   (Where is the world that denies you) 
E5         D5      C5             D5            E5        D5    C5         D5 
All these fatal flowers,                          did I misguide you? 
                 (Where is the world that denies you)
