F G C

G G/B C D
I'll wait for someone to tell me what I already know
G G/B C D
And I'll wait for my grip to fail me then I'll just let it go
Em D Em D
She's so hard to please so I just freeze
Em D C Bm7
nailed down by whispers, looks and sighs
C D C D
And I'm so paralysed, I am so paralysed

G G/B C D
I wait for you to disown me when you leave I won't look
G G/B C D
I wait for someone to phone me with the phone off the hook
Em D Em D
I get up to leave but I just deceive
Em D C Bm7
You all the time pretending I'm
C D C F C
so paralysed I'm so paralysed
G F C G F C D
I'm so paralysed I'm just paralysed

G G/B C D
I wait for mistakes to happen so I can't put them right
G G/B C D
I wait for someone to latch on, but no-one's that bright
Em D Em D
I say it can't be done, let's turn and run
Em D C Bm7
completely normal in my own eyes
C D
to be so paralysed

D G G/B C
Got the fear of falling from a great height
D G G/B C
Can't open my parachute stiff with fright
D G G/B C
I woke up naked in the high street
D G G/B C
with lead boots on both feet

F C G F C
I was paralysed I'm so paralysed
G F C D
I'm so paralysed

instrumental

Em D Em D
She's so hard to please so I just freeze
Em D C Bm7
nailed down by whispers, looks and sighs
D E D E
And I'm so paralysed, I am so paralysed
D E D E
Got me so paralysed, I'm so paralysed
D E D E
I am so paralyse, I am so paralysed
