Building A Mystery.
Sarah McLachlan.
Album: Surfacing.
Capo 5.

Intro: Am F#m D A E

    F#m         D     A                       E
You come out at night, that's when the energy comes,
        F#m         D      A        E
And the dark side's light, vampires roam,
    F#m        D     A                     E
You strut your Rasta wear and your suicide poem,
      F#m               D         A        E    B
And a cross from a faith that died before Jesus came,
       D          E    B  F#m D A E
You're building a mystery,

    F#m       D                 A                 E
You live in a church, where you sleep with voodoo dolls,
        F#m               D              A             E
And you won't give up the search for the ghosts in the halls,
    F#m                 D                           A        
You wear sandals in the snow and a smile that won't wash away,
    F#m                  D
How can you look out the window, 
                            A          
Without your shadow getting in the way?

Bridge
B                  D                    B
You're so beautiful, with an edge and a charm,
                D                E  F#m7
But so careful, when I'm in your arms.

Chorus
             D        A          E     F#m7
Cause you're working, building a mystery,
D       A      E      F#m7             D
Holding on, holding it in, yeah you're working.
A          E    F#m7   D        A       E
Building a mystery and choosing so carefully,
 
        F#m7           D  A                 E
Woke up screaming aloud, a prayer from your secret god,
    F#m          D                   A    E
You feed off our fears and hold back your tears,
              F#m    D      A           E
Oh, give us a tantrum and a know it all grin,
F#m               D            A         E
Just when we need one when the evening's thin,

Bridge
B            D                                Bm
Ah you're so beautiful, a beautiful f**ked up man,
       B               D          E     F#m
You're setting up your razor wire shrine,

Chorus
             D        A          E     F#m
Cause you're working, building a mystery,
D       A   E            F#m           D
Holding on, holding it in, yeah you're working.
A          E      F#m  D        A      E  D  E
Building a mystery and choosing so carefully,
D   Bm7 B  D E A E D Bm7
Ooh ooh ooh,   ooh   ooh
             E/B      D   A      E
Cause you're working, building a mystery, oh oh,
F#m7    D      E          F#m             D
Holding on and holding it in, yeah you're working,
A          E     F#m   D        A      E    F#m7
Building a mystery and choosing so carefully,
            D        A          E      F#m7
yeah you're working, building a mystery,  
D       A   E   B/F#        D        A          E   B/F#
Holding on, holding, you're working, building a mystery,
F#m7 D       A      E   F#m7
and choosing so carefully,
D      A          E
You're building a mystery.

(Some variation on F#m & F#m7 also G or G6)

Transpose down to Bm without a Capo.
