        But the sadness
         Dm               Gm
        slightly of your face
                  C          F/G (xx3213)
        I didn't mean what I say
        Em                      Am
        a humanesque is playing on tonight


Do you still talk revolution?
who would ever know, you'd have to see
way down, down the Tingo Marie
caught you all alone in their angry streets,


        But the sadness
        who did you meet?
        did they treat you that way
        a humanesque is playing on tonight

        But the sadness
        in your eyes I see
        I didnít want it that way
        a humanesque is playing on tonight

A
Your eyes are liars
 C                            D   D7
they paint the secrets you betray


Your Spanish men say that you cheat them everyday
they want to go and let you have your way
seems your rebels have given up the cause
and even Oklahoma calls your name


        But the magic
        with which you held sway
        has fallen decayed
        a humanesque is playing on tonight

        The magic
        has since burned away
        they didnít want it that way,
        a humanesque is playing on tonight
