Heart Of Glass
...HEART OF GLASS... by Blondie
--------------------...........

*from 'Parallel Lines' (1979)*


[Intro]

E


[Verse 1]

E                               C#7
 Once I had a love and it was a gas,
C#m7                               E
 Soon turned out; I had a heart of glass.
                                    C#7
Seemed like the real thing, only to find;
C#m7                           E
 Much mistrust; love's gone be-hind.


[Verse 2]

E                                C#7
 Once I had a love and it was di-vine,
C#m7                             E
 Soon found out; I was losing my mind.
                                        C#7
Seemed like the real thing but I was so blind,
C#m7                           E
 Much mistrust; love's gone be-hind.


[Chorus 1]

A                                             E
 In between, what I find is pleasing, and I'm feeling fine.
                                 A
Love is so confusing; there's no peace of mind.
If I fear I'm losing you;
     F#7               B7               B7sus4
It's just no good: you teasing like you do.


[Interlude]

E


[Verse 3]

E                               C#7
 Once I had a love and it was a gas,
C#m7                               E
 Soon turned out; I had a heart of glass.
                                    C#7
Seemed like the real thing, only to find;
C#m7                           E
 Much mistrust; love's gone be-hind.


[Chorus 2]

A                                      E
 Lost inside, adorable illusion, and I cannot hide.
                                        A
I'm them one you're using; please don't push me aside,
                            E
We coulda made it cruising, yeah.


[Solo]

A  E, A  E (x2)

F#7             B7                 B7sus4
 Riding high on love's true bluish light.


[Break]

E
 Ooh ooh, woah oh, ooh ooh, woah oh.
Ooh ooh, woah oh, ooh ooh, woah oh.


[Verse 4]

E                               C#7
 Once I had a love and it was a gas,
C#m7                                 E
 Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass.
                                    C#7
Seemed like the real thing, only to find;
C#m7                           E
 Much mistrust; love's gone be-hind.


[Coda]

E
 Ooh ooh, woah oh, ooh ooh, woah oh.
Ooh ooh, woah oh, ooh ooh, woah oh.

About the artist behind Heart Of Glass:

Blondie is an American rock band that first gained fame in the late 1970s, and has so far sold over 60 million records[1]. The band was a pioneer in the early American punk rock and new wave scenes. Its first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles and was noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco, pop and reggae, while retaining a basic style as a New Wave band.

Lead singer Deborah Harry achieved a level of celebrity that eclipsed other band members, leading to tension within the group. Following a poorly received album and with core member Chris Stein diagnosed with a potentially fatal disease, the group disbanded in 1982.[2] As members pursued other projects, Blondie's reputation grew over the following decade and the group reformed in 1997, achieving renewed success and a number one single in the United Kingdom with "Maria" in 1999. The group toured and performed throughout the world over the following years, and was inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the RockWalk of Fame in 2006.[3]
