[BRIDGE] 

Am
 Aint no doctor or pill that can take the pain away
Em
 the pain's inside and nobody frees you from your body.
                                             D                                 Am
it's the soul, it's the soul that needs surgery. its the soul that needs surgery
Am
 Plastic smiles and denial can only take you so far
Em
 and you break when the fake facade leaves you in the dark
C
 you left a shattered mirror
                     D
and the shards of a beautiful girl


[Chorus]

G    Am  Em
 Pretty hurts
                       D         G
Shine the light on whatever's worst.

Perfection is the disease of a nation (pretty hurts, pretty hurts)

Shine the light on whatever's worst.

try to fix something but you cant fix what you cant see,
          D*
It's the soul that needs a surgery. 
 

[OUTRO]

              G                Am
When you're alone all by yourself
                Em       D
when your lyin in your bed 
             G                  Am          Em             D    
reflection stares right into you, are you happy with yourself? 
             G           Am          Em                      D
It's just away to masquerade, the illusion has been changed 
D                       G     Am
 are you happy with yourself?
Am                        Em
 are you happy with yourself?
        G
