    Intro:  Bm x2

     

    Bm                                A     

    Hello.  Is there anybody in there?

            G (½)                           Em (½)          Bm     
    Just nod if you can hear me.       Is there anyone home?

     Bm                                        A     
    Come on, now.  I hear you’re feeling down.

            G (½)                      Em (½)     Bm     
    Well, I can ease your pain, get you on your feet again.

    Bm                                     A     
    Relax.   I need some information first.

     G (½)                     Em (½)         Bm     
    Just the basic facts:  Can you show me where it hurts?

    Chorus 1:

    D                                           A     
      There is no pain, you are receding.

    D                                               A     
       A distant ship smoke on the horizon.

    C                                                      G     
       You are only coming through in waves.

             C                                                                G     
    Your lips move, but I cant hear what you’re saying.

              D                                  A     
    When I was a child I had a fever.

           D                                         A     
    My hands felt just like two balloons.

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

    C                                                G     
    understand.  This is not how I am.

    A         C (½)               G (½)                        D     
    I             have become comfortably numb.

     

     

    Solo:

    / D - - - / A - - - / D - - - / A - - - /

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

     

    A         C (½)         G (½)                     D     
    I             have become comfortably numb.

     

    Bm                      A     
    Ok.  Just a little pinprick.

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

                                  G (½)               Em (½)        Bm     
    That’ll keep you going for the show.       Come on its time to go.

    Chorus 2:

    D                                             A     
       There is no pain, you are receding.

    D                                                       A     
       A distant ships smoke on the horizon.

    C                                                        G     
       You are only coming through in waves.

             C                                                              G     
    Your lips move but I cant hear what you’re saying.

              D                                        A     
    When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse

    D                                               A     
        Out of the corner of my eye.

    C                                                 G     
        I turned to look but it was gone.  I cannot put my finger

    C                                                           G     

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

    A         C (½)              G (½)                        D (2)
    I             have become comfortably numb.

     

    Solo 2 (repeat progression 8x):

    /Bm - - - / A - - - / G - Em - / Bm - - - /

     

    End on Bm
