INTRO: 

G - D - Em - C

VERSE: 

G                D
It's K-Mart, the bathroom
Em                 C 
I'm staring in the mirror
G         D
The green lights are bright 
   Em              C
It makes the lines clearer
G             D
Where did the angel go?
Em                           C 
Cigarette smoke's all that's left
G                          D
I traded my wings in for a string of pearls
            Em                 C
And now the string is all I've left
G               D
The light bulbs burn
Em               C   
Some ones in the stall
G         D
Big white Brick wall
Em            C
Makes me feel small
      G         D
And I take my shirt off
Em                       C
Looking for a glimpse of flesh
G                D
I peel back the concrete
             Em              C
Hope there's still some soil left

CHORUS: 

         G            D
Cuz I am fading I am fading
Em          C
I am fading away
     G                D
I am fading Just like fairy tales
         Em         C 
When the hero loses faith
C
I am fading

VERSE 2 AS ABOVE: 

The air smells like urine
It's getting hard to breathe
I could walk out that door
But no one really ever leaves
I take all my clothing off
Trying not to forget
Stupid things like The color of rain
And the smell of stone when it's wet

BRIDGE:
        Cadd9         Cmaj9  
And I am naked in the mirror With a 
C9            Am
feather in my hand
    Cadd9                 Cmaj9  
The lady comes out of the bathroom 
                 C9                  Am
Screaming, "Oh, Jesus!" Like I was a man

VERSE 3/CHORUS AS ABOVE (G-D-Em-C):

And I ask her "Hey, what happens to us
When we get old and in the way?"
I guess she answered me 
Cause they took me away

And I am fading I am fading
I am fading away
I am fading Just like fairy tales
When the hero loses faith
And I can't remember
Why or when, I hope that I'll remember again
Cause I am fading
I'm fading
