Lyrics/chords to "Michael Picasso"

Michael Picasso

(Ian Hunter)

C C/B Am7
Once upon a time
F C C/B Am7
Not so long ago
F C
People used to stand and stare
C/B Am7
At the spider with the platinum hair
F C C/B Am7
They thought you were immortal
F C C/B Am7
We had our ups and downs
F C C/B Am7
Like brothers often do
F C
But I was there for him
C/B Am7
He was always there for me
F C C/B Am7 F
And we were there for you
C C/B Am7 F
How can I put into words what my heart feels
C C/B Am7 F
Its the deepest thing when somebody you love dies
C C/B I just wanted to give something back to you
Am7 F
Gift to gift
C C/B
Michael, Michael Picasso
Am7 F C C/B Am7
Goodnight
F C C/B Am7
You used to love our house
F C C/B Am7
You said it was relaxing
F C
Now I walk in the places you walked
C/B Am7
I talk in all the spaces you talked
F C C/B Am7 F
It still hasn't sunk in
C C/B Am7 F
Are the words real that come into my head on a morning walk
C C/B Am7 F
Do the shadows play tricks with my mind
C C/B For it feels like nothing has changed
Am7 F
But I know it has
C C/B Michael, Michael Picasso
Am7 F
Goodnight
G C G C Heal me, won't you heal me
Bb F
Nothing lasts forever
Bb C
Set me free
G C G C Heal me, won't you heal me
Bb F
I'm the one whose left here
Dm C Heal me
Dm C Heal me
Dm C Dm C F
Heal me
F C C/B Am7
You turned into a ghost
F C C/B Am7
Surrounded by your pain
F C
And the thing that I like the least
C/B Am7
Was sitting round Hasker Street
F C C/B Am7 F
Lying about the future
C C/B Am7 F
And we all sit in a room full of tears on a windy day
C C/B Am7 F
And I look down but none of these words seem right
C C/B I just wanted to give something back to you
Am7 F
Gift to gift
C C/B
Michael, Michael Picasso
Am7 F C
Goodnight.
