firstname.lastname@example.org February 8th 2001, 7.52pm PRIVATE HELL by THE JAM Written by Paul Weller From the LP 'Setting Sons' (Polydor, 1979) The other version on here is transcribed a semitone too high, so hopwfully this is the correct version.

(Em7) Em7 Em7 Closer than close - you see yourself - C Em7 A mirrored image - of what you what you wanted to be. Em7 As each day goes by - a little more - C Em7 You can't remember - what it was you wanted anyway. Em7 The fingers feel the lines - they prod the space - C D Your ageing face - the face that once was so beautiful, C D Is still there but unrecognisable. Em7* Private hell. Private Hell. N.C. (Em7) Em7 The man who you once loved - is bald and fat - C Em7 And seldom in - working late as usual. Em7 Your interest has waned - you feel the strain - C D The bed springs snap - on the occasions he lies upon you - C D Close your eyes and think of nothing but - Em7* Private hell. Private Hell. G Am G Am Think of Emma - wonder what she's doing - G Am G Am Her husband Terry - and your grandchildren. A Bm A Bm Think of Edward - who's still at college - A Bm You send him letters - which he doesn't acknowledge. Em7 'Cause he don't care. They don't care. C D Em7* 'Cause they're all going through - their own - Private Hell. Private Hell. N.C. (Em7) Em7 The morning slips away - in a valium haze - C Em7 And catalogues - and numerous cups of coffee. Em7 In the afternoon - the weekly food, C Em7 Is put in bags - as you float off down the high street. Em7 The shop windows reflect - play a nameless host, C D To a clost ghost - a picture of your fantasy - C D Em7* A victim of your misery - and Private Hell. Private Hell. N.C. (Em7*) Alone at 6 o'clock - you drop a cup - Em7 You see it smash - inside you crack - C You can't go on - but you sweep it up. D Em7* Safe at last inside your Private Hell. C D Em7* Sanity at last inside your Private Hell. Em7 Sanity at last inside your Private Hell. Em7 Private Hell.
