[Verse 1]
Em                    A
Maybe I listen more than you think
Bm             A
and I can tell that somebody sold you
Em                     A
We said we’ve never let anyone in
Bm           A
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets
[Chorus]
G               A                D
The system only dreams in total darkness
G
Why are you hiding from me?
A                 D
We’re in a different kind of thing now
G
All night you’re talking to God
Em
[Verse 2]
Em                              A
I thought that this would all work out after a while
Bm             A
Now you’re saying that I’m asking for too much attention
Em                              A
Also no other faith is light enough for this place
Bm             A
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets
[Chorus]
G               A                D
The system only dreams in total darkness
G
Why are you hiding from me?
A                 D
We’re in a different kind of thing now
G
All night you’re talking to God
Em

G             A
I can’t explain it
D          G
Any other, any other way
G             A
I can’t explain it
D          G
Any other, any other way
