       E7                    E7 
As you look into my eyes and tell those empty lies 
        A                                A 
I'll pretend they're true, 'cause that's what I do 
       E7                       E7 
As you sit and hold my hand and smile at other men 
        A                          A 
I'll pretend I'm blind, 'cause I'm just that kind

   Over loneliness and pain 
C#                             F#m 
   The king of fools wears his crown

   Wherever misery can be found

   Over loneliness and pain 
C#                             F#m 
   The king of fools wears his crown 
B                         E7 
   Wherever misery can be found 

       E7                       E7 
As you walk away with him and I lose in love again 
        A                        A 
I'll pretend to see, that you're still with me 
         E7                         E7 
But I'll be there all alone, like a king upon a throne 
       E7              A 
'Cause I'm the king of fools 
     E7              A 
Yes, I'm the king of fools

This may be easier to play if you transpose down two half-steps and use , so A is now G at , etc.
