forms)
              E
We play these parlour games

We play at make believe
                              A     E/G#     F#m
When we get to the part where I say that I'm going to leave
     A    E/G#    F#m              B             E
Everybody loves a happy ending but we don't even try
A     E/G#     F#m
We go straight past pretending
B
To the part where everybody loves to cry
(chorus)
E
Indoor fireworks
Can still burn your fingers
B
Indoor fireworks
E
We swore we were safe as houses
They're not so spectacular
           A       E/G#    F#m
They don't burn up in the sky

But they can dazzle or delight
B
Or bring a tear
                            E
When the smoke gets in your eyes

You were the spice of life
The gin in my vermouth
And though the sparks would fly
I thought our love was fireproof
Sometimes we'd fight in public darling
With very little cause
But different kinds of sparks would fly
When we got on our own behind closed doors

(chorus)
It's time to tell the truth
These things have to be faced
My fuse is burning out
And all that powder's gone to waste
Don't think for a moment dear that we'll ever be through
I'll build a bonfire of my dreams
And burn a broken effigy of me and you

(chorus)

By they can dazzle and delight
F#m         B
Or bring a tear
           B                 E
