    Intro:  Am x2

     

    Am                                G     

    Hello.  Is there anybody in there?

            F (½)                           Dm (½)          Am     
    Just nod if you can hear me.       Is there anyone home?

     Am                                        G     
    Come on, now.  I hear you’re feeling down.

            F (½)                      Dm (½)     Am     
    Well, I can ease your pain, get you on your feet again.

    Am                                     G     
    Relax.   I need some information first.

     F (½)                    Dm (½)        Am     
    Just the basic facts:  Can you show me where it hurts?

    Chorus 1:

    C                                           G     
      There is no pain, you are receding.

    C                                               G     
       A distant ship smoke on the horizon.

    Bb                                                      F     
       You are only coming through in waves.

             Bb                                                                F     
    Your lips move, but I cant hear what you’re saying.

              C                                  G     
    When I was a child I had a fever.

           C                                         G     
    My hands felt just like two balloons.

    Bb                                                    F     
       Now I got that feeling once again.  I can’t explain, you would not

    Bb                                                F     
    understand.  This is not how I am.

    G         Bb (½)              F (½)                       C     
    I             have become comfortably numb.

     

     

    Solo:

    / C - - - / G - - - / C - - - / G - - - /

    / Bb - - - / F - - - / / Bb - - - / F - - - /

     

    G         Bb (½)         F (½)                     C     
    I             have become comfortably numb.

     

    Am                      G     
    Ok.  Just a little pinprick.

                                        F (½Dm (½)                      Am     
    There’ll be no more, Aaaaaah!  But you may feel a little sick.
                      Am                                      G     
    Can you stand up?  I do believe it’s working good.

                                  F (½)                Dm (½)       Am     
    That’ll keep you going for the show.       Come on its time to go.

    Chorus 2:

    C                                             G     
       There is no pain, you are receding.

    C                                                       G     
       A distant ships smoke on the horizon.

    Bb                                                        F     
       You are only coming through in waves.

             Bb                                                              F     
    Your lips move but I cant hear what you’re saying.

              C                                        G     
    When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse

    C                                               G     
        Out of the corner of my eye.

    Bb                                                 F     
        I turned to look but it was gone.  I cannot put my finger

    Bb                                                           F     

    on it now.  The child is grown, the dream is gone.

    G         Bb (½)              F (½)                       C (2)
    I             have become comfortably numb.

    /A - - - / G - - - / F - Dm - / Am - - - /

     

    End on Am
