Losing my religion   (midi)

 

      G  Am                 Em                                                   Am

1.  Oh life    is bigger,    it's bigger than you, and you are not me,

                                     Em                                      Am

    the lengths that I will go to, the distance in your eyes.

Em                                   Dm                     G

   Oh now, I've said  too much, I've said enough.

 

                               Am                                   Em                            Am

2. That's me in the corner,    that's me in the spot light, losing my religion,

      \           Em                                 Am              \

    trying to keep up with you, and I don't know if I can do it.

 

Em                                  Dm                              G

    Oh now, I've said too much, I haven't said enough.

                                           F

I thought that I heard you laughing.

     Dm                G            Am      F                      Dm   G   Am

I thought that I heard you sing. I think I thought I saw you cry.

 

G              Am                             Em                                   Am

3. Every whisper, every waking hour, I'm choosing my confessions,

      \            Em                                    Am                               

    trying to keep an eye on you, like a hurt, lost and blinded fool, fool.

Em                               Dm                      G

   Oh no, I've said  too much, I've said enough.

 

                   Am                        Em

4. Consider this, consider this hint of the century.

                   Am          \             Em

    Consider this, the slip, that brought me to my knees, pale.

    Am                                        Em                                       Dm         G

   What if all these fantasies come   flaming aground, Oh now, I said too much.

 

                            C                     Am      C                     Am     - G +

+ CHORUS      That was just a dream, that was just a dream.

 

5. = 2. + REFRAIN

             F                     Dm          Am

     But that was just a dream,      try, cry, why try.

       F                      Dm        G       Am      F         G                   Am

    That was just a dream,   just a dream, just a dream, dream.
