        / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /      [2x]

verse 1:

                    B              D#m/A#          G#m

        I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste, a flannel for my face

        C#/F                       Em

        Pajamas, a hairbrush, new shoes and a case

           Bm                               F#m               G/A   A

        I said to my reflection, "let's get out of this place"

          D         E                            G

        Passed the church and the steeple, the laundry on the hill


        Billboards and the buildings

        A/E            C#/F

        Memories of it still keep

        Bm/F#         E

        Calling and calling

            Bm/F#         G/F           E    E/D

        But forget it all     I know I will


        B               B/A       E/G#      E

        Tempted by the fruit of another

        B                B/A        E/G#     E

        Tempted but the truth is discovered


        What's been going on


        Now that you have gone

                     B     B/A

        There's no other

        E/G#             E         B     B/A

        Tempted by the fruit of another

        E/G#              E          C#m       Em

        Tempted but the truth is discovered

verse 2:

        I'm at the carpark, the airport, the baggage carousel

        The people keep on grabbing, ain't wishing I was well

        I said, "It's no occasion, it's no story I can tell"

        At my bedside, empty pocket, a foot without a sock

        Your body gets much closer

        I fumble for the clock

        Alarmed by the seduction

        I wish that it would stop

        [repeat chorus]

verse 3 [half-length]

        I bought a novel, some perfume, a fortune over you

        But it's not my conscience that hates to be untrue

           Bm                              F#m                  G/A A D

        I asked of my reflection, "tell me what is there to do"

        [repeat chorus to fade]
