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

Intro: B F#m7 D A E F#m7 D A E

B/C#                 D A                      E
You come out at night, that's when the energy comes,
        F#m7             D A        C#m7 F#m
And the dark side's light, vampires roam,
               D6                  A       C#m7
You strut your Rasta wear and your suicide poem,
      F#m7         D              A       E     B
And a cross from a faith that died before Jesus came,
       D          A    E  F#m7 D A
You're building a mystery.

    F#m7      D                 A                 C#m7
You live in a church, where you sleep with voodoo dolls,
        F#m               D              A
And you won't give up the search for the ghosts in the halls,
    F#m7                D          A
You wear sandals in the snow and a smile that won't wash away,
F#m7                     D
How can you look out the window, 
             A
Without your shadow getting in the way?
Bm                    D                    B
Oh you're so beautiful, with an edge and a charm,
                D                E   Bm
But so careful, when I'm in your arms.

(Chorus)
             D        A          E    F#m
Cause you're working, building a mystery,
D       A      E      B/F#             D
Holding on, holding it in, yeah you're working.
A          E  F#m      D        A      E
Building a mystery and choosing so carefully.
 
        F#m7     Bm  D     A
Woke up screaming aloud, a prayer from your secret god,
    F#m7         D              A/C#      E
You feed off our fears and hold back your tears,
    F#m              D      A           
Oh, give us a tantrum and a know it all grin,
B/F#              D6  Dmaj7    A         E
Just when we need one when the evening's thin.

(Bridge)
F#m7         Bm    D                          Bm
Ah you're so beautiful, a beautiful f**ked up man,
                       D          A     F#m Bm
You're setting up your razor wire shrine.

(Chorus)
             D        A          E    F#m
Cause you're working, building a mystery,
D       A      E      B/F#             D
Holding on, holding it in, yeah you're working.
A          E  F#m      D        A      E    Dmaj7 E D6 D 
Building a mystery and choosing so carefully.
B      F#m7 D E D E D E Bm
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ah ah (etc)
             F#m7 Bm  D          F#m7        D
Cause you're working, building a mystery, oh oh,
        A      E          F#m7            D
Holding on and holding it in, yeah you're working,
A          E  F#m      D        A      E
Building a mystery and choosing so carefully,
            D        A          E  F#m
yeah you're working, building a mystery,
D       A   E  F#m          D        A          E  F#m
Holding on, holding, you're working, building a mystery,
    D        A      E    F#m7 D F# A E
and choosing so carefully,
F#     A          E
You're building a mystery.
