Smoke and Mirrors

Chords and lyrics for Smoke and Mirrors by Gotye

 
You’re a fraud and you  
D#m 
know 
 
it
 
But  
G# 
F# 
it’s too good to throw  
D# 
it all away
 
Anyone  
G# 
would do  
D# 
the 
 
same
You’ve got ‘em going
 
And you’re  
A#Diminished7 
careful not to show it
Sometimes you even fool yourself a bit
G# 
It’s like magic
 
But it’s always been  
C# 
a smoke and  
D# 
mirrors 
 
game
 
Anyone would  
G# 
do the same

So now that you’ve arrived well you wonder

D#m 
What is it that you’ve done to  
G# 
make the grade
And should you do the same?
(Is that too easy?)
C# 
Are you only trying to please them
G# 
(Will they see then?)
 
You’re desperate  
F# 
to 
 
deliver
 
Anything  
D# 
that 
 
 
G# 
could give you
A sense of reassurance
 
When you  
D#m 
look in the mirror
G# 
Such highs and lows
You put on quite a show
All these highs and lows
D# 
And you’re never really sure
 
What you  
G# 
do it for
 
Well do  
C# 
you even want to  
D# 
know?
You put on quite a show

(Mother)

 
Are you  
G# 
watching?
D# 
Are 
 
 
G# 
you 
 
watching?
(Mother)
Are you watching?
(Mother)

 
You’re a fraud  
A#m 
and you know it
 
And every night and  
Fm7 
day you take the stage
G# 
And it always entertains
You’re giving pleasure
And that’s admirable, you tell yourself
And so you’d gladly sell yourself
To others

(Mother)

Are you watching?
(Mother)
Are you watching?
(Mother)
Are you watching?
(Mother)
Are you watching?

Such highs and lows

You put on quite a show
 
All  
G#aug 
these highs and lows
And you’re never really sure
What you do it for
Well do you even want to know?
Yeah you put on quite a show
