Vs1

G Gmaj7 G6 G/D

Time to kill wrote a living will

A C

And gave it to the man in the moon

Em B C*

But I'm on a get well soon

A* D D7

This happy face is watching me die

Elevate me to another world

All that I can do in my own

Em B C*

Is leave well enough alone

G B C*

Leave well enough alone

A D

Leave well enough alone

Vs2

Circumstance dropped by

Uninvited and demand to be fed

But I've already gone to bed

There's nothing you can see from inside

My spirit arose and put on my clothes

And help me disconnecting the phone

To leave well enough alone

Leave well enough alone

Leave well enough alone

Br

Cm Cm7 Eb/A F

D D/C D/Bb D/A

Eb Gm F

Time was I was a wire

D Eb

Then a mole in a cake

First it's all the reaction

Bb D

Now it's all the rage

Solo

Em G A C

Em B C* G B C A* D

Vs3

Waking up at a station stop

And reality's invading my brain

The cops wanna search the train

They'll take away whatever they find

But I don't have the thoughts you want

Just a memory of love I was shown

A vision that turns to stone

Leave well enough alone

Leave well enough alone

G Em Cm D G

That's it. My first tab since.....XO. Thanks for

being patient. All the other people do a great job.

Listen to the album for timings, as always.
