[Note: patterns are approximate]

[intro]                                            [2/4][4/4]
|Bm  D  |A  F#m  |Bm  D |E    |D  C  |A  F#m |G  A |E  |Bm  |     |

[verse]
|Bm              |A          Bm     
 Make me of clay, make me of steel
       |A                         |E       Bm    |
But whatever you do, don't try and make me real
|Bm                  |A         Bm     
Make me your dream, a secretive deal
   |A                           |E       Bm     |
But don't ever scheme to try and make me real

[chorus]
|Bm   D        |A       F#m  
 Stop trying to make me real
 |Bm              D               |E             
I haven't got the kind of heart of lover can steal
|D    C        |A          F#m
 Stop crying, I just can't feel
                                  [2/4]   [4/4]
   |G            A                |E      |Bm     |       |
Any sympathy for someone trying to make me real

Make me of shit in a two-tenner deal
Make me of pornography in a pedophile wheel
Whatever I do, whatever I feel
By your double standard I will never be real

Stop trying to make me real
I haven't got the kind of heart of lover can steal
Stop crying, I just can't feel
Any sympathy for someone trying to make me 

[bridge]
|G                           |D      E     |
   Why can't you settle for a fantasy?
|G                                 |D      
   You're so convinced that I'm the man to see
 |Bm          D         |Bm       A      
I cannot live up to what you give up to
 |E          |           |F#         |     
I fail to see the perfect man in me

[interlude]
||:Bm     |Bm     |Bm     |Bm     :||

Make me from you magazine A-listed ideal
Dress me in the doll's house your knickers conceal
Make me your brother-lover beau-ideal
But you will soon discover lover can't be real

Stop trying to make me real
I haven't got the kind of heart a lover can steal
Stop crying, I just can't feel
Any sympathy for someone trying to make me real

Stop trying to make me real
I haven't got the kind of heart a lover can steal
Stop crying, I just can't feel
Any sympathy for someone trying to make me real

Donšt try to make me real, oh no
I got no sympathy, no sympathy for someone trying to make me real

Stop trying to make me real
I haven't got the kind of heart a lover can steal
Stop crying, I just can't feel
Any sympathy for someone trying to make me real
