[Verse 1]

       Am                 Am

Empty spaces, what are we living for?

            F                 F

Abandoned places, I guess we know the score.

Dm              E                         Dm

On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for?

        Am            Am

Another hero, another mindless crime,

            F               F

Behind the curtain, in the pantomime,

Dm                  E                        Dm

Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore?

[Chorus]

                 Am                   F

The show must go on, The show must go on.

  Dm                             E                              Dm           Am

Inside my heart is breaking, my make-up may be flaking, But my smile still stays on.

[Verse 2]

         Bm                    Bm

Whatever happens, I'll leave it all to chance,

         G                  G

Another heartache, another failed romance.

Em               F#                       Em

On and on, does anybody know what we are living for?

             Bm                 Bm

I guess I'm learning I must be warmer now,

              G                 G

I'll soon be turning round the corner now,

   Em                             F#                            Em          Dm

Outside the dawn is breaking, but inside in the dark I'm aching to be free.

[Chorus]

                 Am                   F

The show must go on, The show must go on.

   Dm                            E                              Dm          Am

Inside my heart is breaking, My make-up may be flaking, But my smile still stays on.

Am  F F  Dm  E  Dm

[Bridge]

Eb           F                Dm              Gm

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies,

Eb              F              Dm             Gm

Fairy-tales of yesterday will grow and never die,

G           C

I can fly, my friends.

[Chorus]

                 Am

The show must go on,

                 F

The show must go on.

     Dm                        E                 Dm                 

I'll face it with a grin, I'm never giving in, on  with  the show.

[Solo]

Am Am F F

[Outro]

     Dm               Dm         E                               Dm

I'll top the bill I'll overkill I have to find the will to carry on,

               E               Dm

(On with the show, with the) show

                 Am
