Riff1
Life has been unfaithful

Riff1
And it all promised so so much

Riff1
I am a relic

Riff1
I am just a petrified cry

C5                      D5 Eb5      F5  Riff1
Wheeled out once a year, a cenotaph souvenir

C5                  D5 Eb5        F5
The applause nails down my silence

           Gmaj7 C/G   Gmaj7 C/G
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh

BREAK: D


I see liberals
I am just a fashion accessory
People send postcards
And they all hope I'm feeling well
I retreat into self-pity, it's so easy
Where they patronise my misery


La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh

BREAK: D

Chords for solo:

La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh

I sold my medal
It paid a bill
It sells at market stalls
Parades Milan catwalks
The sadness will never go
Will never go away
Baby it's here to stay

La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
