VERSE 1
 
A            G
Sober in the morning light
 
D
Things look so much different
 
            A      A    E
To how they looked last night
 
A                         G
A pale face pressed to an unmade bed
 
     D                            A
Like flags of many nations flying high above her head
 
 
VERSE 2
 
A             E
The cellophane still on the flowers
 
G                         D
The telegram still in her hand
 
A                G
As whispers circulate all day
 
      D                               A
Their back-stage baby princess passed away
 
 
CHORUS
 
        C#m          G#m
And you can cage the songbird
 
    Bm                 F#m
But you can't make her sing
 
        C#m          G#m
And you can trap the free bird
 
           Bm               F#m
But you'll have to clip her wings
 
              E           E7   E        E7
`Cause she'll soar like a hawk when she flies
 
E          D                  E        A
But she'll dive like an eagle when she dies
 
G     D    D  A
Ooh!  ooh!
 
 
VERSE 3
 
A           G
Promises of no more lies
 
     D
Fell flat upon an empty stage
 
           A        E
Before the audience arrived
 
A                       G
A return in time to the cheaper seats
 
                    D
She never knew what lay beneath
 
                           A
Just a dated handbill they found between the sheets
 
 
VERSE 4
 
A                   E
Let down before the final curtain
 
G                             D
A shallow heart that left her cold
 
A                 G
She left in rouge upon the mirror
 
          D                    A
A circled kiss to the faithful fans who'd miss her
 
(CHORUS)
 
A     G     D     A
Ooh!  ooh!  ooh!
