INTRO : G
( guitar 1 )
G				C		   D		G	
Well I woke in mid-afternoon cause that's when it all hurts the most 
G				      C           D         G
I dream I never know anyone at the party and I'm always the host 
     Bm				   C			   G
If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts 
	D			C			G
You can never escape, you can only move south down the coast 

G				C	    D		G	(fill 1)
well, I am an idiot walking a tightrope of fortune and fame 
G				C	    D		G	(fill 2)
I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame 
	Bm			   C				G	(fill 3)
If you've never stared off in the distance, then your life is a shame 
		D		
and though I'll never forget your face, 
C				G	(fill 4)
sometimes i can't remember my name 

Bm   C    G	D
Hey Mrs. Potter don't cry
Hey Mrs. Potter I know why but
Bm   C    G     D  C   C/B       G
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me 

(fill 5)

G				     C	D	   G
Well, there's a piece of Maria in every song that I sing 
G				C		D	G
And the price of a memory is the memory of the sorrow it brings 
		Bm			C			      G
And there is always one last light to turn out and one last bell to 
ring 
	D				C		G
And the last one out of the circus has to lock up everything 

G				    C		D 		G	(fill 6)
Or the elephants will get out and forget to remember what you said 
G			C		D			G	(fill 2)
And the ghosts of the childer world will linger inside your head 
	Bm			  C			G
And the ferris wheel junkies will spin there forever instead 
	D		      C			G	(fill 1 )
When I see you a blanket of stars covers me in my bed 

Bm   C    G      D
Hey Mrs. Potter don't go 
Hey Mrs. Potter I don't know but 
Bm  C   G    D    C  C/B        G
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me 

(fill 7 )

G				     C		D	    G
All the blue light reflections that color my mind when I sleep 
G				    C		D	  G
And the lovesick rejections that accompany the company I keep 
Bm 				C		     G		(fill 8)
All the razor perceptions that cut just a little too deep 
	D				C			  G	(fill 9 )
Hey I can bleed as well as anyone, but I need someone to help me sleep 

G				C	D		G	(fill 10)
So I throw my hand into the air and it swims in the beams 
G					C	     D		   G	(fill 11)
It's just a brief interruption of the swirling dust sparkle jet stream 
	Bm				   C			G
Well, I know I don't know you and you're probably not what you seem 
	D
But I'd sure like to find out 
		C			      G
So why don't you climb down off that movie screen 

Bm  C     G       D
Hey Mrs. Potter don't turn 
Hey Mrs. Potter I burn for you 
Bm  C	  G    D   C    C/B	G
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me 

G				C		D	      G
When the last king of Hollywood shatters his glass on the floor 
	G	D/F#
and orders another 
	Em		D	Bm
Well, I wonder what he did that for 
		Bm				C		   G	
That's when I know that I have to get out cause I have been there 
before 
	D		      C				G	(fill 12)
So I gave up my seat at the bar and I head for the door

G				   C		D		G	(fill 13)
We drove out to the desert just to lie down beneath this bowl of stars 
G					C		D		G	(fill 14)
We stand up in the palace like it's the last of the great pioneer town 
bars 
  Bm					C		   G
We shout out these songs against the clang of electric guitars 
        D				C		    G
You can see a million miles tonight But you can't get very far 
	    D				    C                  G	(fill 14)
Oh, you can see a million miles tonight But you can't get very far 

Bm   C  G       D
Hey Mrs. Potter I won't touch 
Hey Mrs. Potter it's not much but 
Bm   C   G   D   C   C/B        G
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me
