      Bm                                                  A

1. Hello (hello, hello) is there anybody in there ?

                                    G            - Em             Bm

    Just nod if you can hear me,          is there anyone home ?

                                                                                     A

    Come on (come on, come on) now, I hear, you're feeling down,

           G                        Em               Bm

   well, I can ease your pain, get you on your feet again.

                                              A

    Relax, I need some information first,

     G                   Em                  Bm

    just the basic facts can you show me where it hurts.

 

D                                               A            

    There is no pain, you are receding,

D                                                     A

    a distant ship's smoke on the horizon.

C                                                       G        

    You are only coming through in waves,

        C                                                            G

your lips move, but I can't hear what you're sayin'.

          D                                A

When I was a child I had a fever,

        D                                      A

my hands felt just like two balloons.

   C                                              G

Now I've got that feeling once again I can't explain,

                        C                                          G

you would not understand, this is not how I am,

  A - C                G                           D

 I…….I have become comfortably numb.

   Bm                                       A

3. OK ( OK, OK ), just a little pinprick,

                            G           - Em                       Bm

    there'll be no more, ah…..ah! But you may feel a little sick.

                                                                                               A  

    Can you stand up (stand up, stand up), I do believe it's working good,

                               G                  Em            Bm

    that'll keep you going for the show, come on, it's time to go.

 

D                                               A            

    There is no pain, you are receding,

D                                                     A

    a distant ship's smoke on the horizon.

C                                                       G        

    You are only coming through in waves,

        C                                                            G

your lips move, but I can't hear what you're sayin'.

          D                                       A

When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse,

D                                       A

    out of the corner of my eye.

C                                            G

    I turned to look but it was gone.

                                     C                                   

I cannot put my finger on it now,

                                       G

the child is grown, the dream is gone.

  A - C                G                           D

 I…….I have become comfortably numb.
