“It’s like a 
E
makeover when the 
B
filming’s over and she 
G♯m
doesn’t know
  
how to 
E
fix it so 
B
that it’ll 
A
stay,
  
and she can’t figure out how to 
E
tease out her hair that 
B
way herself.
  
And when she
E
 wakes up all the 
B
make-up has 
G♯m
rubbed away
  
and she 
E
doesn’t know how to 
B
find her 
A
face.

It was only for 
E
one sing

le day
A
that you looked so 
E
beauti
B
ful, baby.

Now your cheeks have gone 
E
pale, and your roots da
B
rk gray.

And though they nod as they 
E
notice 
B
you’re nice,
A
baby, nobody’s

cing twice.

Dim the lights as your 
E
memory of paradise 
B
fades.
I’m like an architect who cashed his check,
but he doesn’t let
on that it’s the last one he’ll get.
Though he knows the funds have run dry,
he wants to have fun for one final night,
staring out at a skyline that he’ll never change.
They’re saying, ’though we like all the things that you’ve made,
notice no one remembers your name.
  
As you 
F♯m
float through time, feel your 
A
powers de
B
cline day by
E
 day.

You’re like a convert who goes back to work
when he can’t retrieve how the clarity actually felt.
When his coworkers ask him the words won’t come out.
And in three weeks his new leaf has rubbed away
and it feels just like an average day:
facing walls talking into the phone,
sitting dumbly in church all alone,
picking back up the magazines he’d thrown away.
Well, convert, what your god whispered into your ear
you forgot once that god disappeared,
and that life-changing day, you just felt it fade.
  
You know it’s got to 
F♯m
fade, yeah,
  
you know it’s got to 
A
fade, oh, you know it’s got to 
B
fade,” and,
  
falling 
A
down on the 
B
couch, he says, “it’s perfectly that 
E
way.”
