Through The Looking Glass

(Ian Hunter)

D           G     Gm/Bb
I'm feelin' ugly

           D/A   E7/G#
I'm feelin low

        A       D
Mornin' mirror

             Em7    A11   D
you ain't no rose

          G        Gm/Bb
And did I mean it

         D/A  E7/G#
or did I lie

         A        D
or did I dream it

              Em      A11     B
Oh Christ I'm tired.

          E/G#           D#m          G#m        G#m/F#  E     B
Why then did ya have to grin, now the blood runs down my chin

                E/G#            D#m                G#m     G#m/F#    E
Oh You know you painted so much blue, and I'm much younger than that too

   B             E     F#    B
Oh mirror - what did I do to you?

B7  E  E7  A  D7  G  A  D  G  D  A7

D         G    Gm/Bb         D/A  E7/G#           A
You're my voyeur - see every line - chase them to destinations

D          Em7    A11
On through time

D             G       Gm/Bb            D/A   E7/G#    A       D           Em
And you're my diary - yeah, the bitter truth - unexpurgated - a mis-spent youth


A11  B

       E/G#                D#m                 G#m   G#m/F#     E         D
Do you have to paint teeth green, when they're snowy, white and clean?

       E/G#              D#m               G#m       G#m/F#    E      E
Do you have to make eyes red, when they're clear and fresh instead?

   B         E          F#        B
Oh mirror, I wish you'd lose your head

A/C#          Cdim              E/B           Bbdim   F#m
Sometimes I'm on a gig, and I'm feeling kinda good

          G#7     G#7       C#m    B        A     A/C#
I run and look at you, just like a pop star would

             Cdim                   E/B           Bbdim
But you just glare at me with those dark accusing eyes

F#m7         B                      A               E/G#
That say "My make-up's good..." I'd like to.... I'd like so much to....

B

              E/G#        D#m                G#m    G#m/F#
Oh I'll never look at you again - 'cause I'm really not that vain

E       B

                E/G#            D#m             G#m        G#m/F#  E
Seven years bad luck ain't that long - before I smash you, hear my song

   B           E     F#       B
Oh mirror, I'm sorry you were wrong.

B7  E  E7  A  D7  G  A  D  G  D  A7  D
