Telling Stories
Tracy Chapman Lyrics


There is fiction in the space between
The lines on your page of memories
Write it down but it doesn't mean
You're not just telling stories
There is fiction in the space between
You and reality
You will do and say anything
To make your everyday life seem less mundane
There is fiction in the space between
You and me

There's a science fiction in the space between
You and me
A fabrication of a grand scheme
Where I am the scary monster
I eat the city and as I leave the scene
In my spaceship I am laughing
In your remembrance of your bad dream
There's no one but you standing

Leave the pity and the blame
For the ones who do not speak
You write the words to get respect and compassion
And for posterity
You write the words and make believe
There is truth in the space between

There is fiction in the space between
You and everybody
Give us all what we need
Give us one more sad sordid story
But in the fiction of the space between
Sometimes a lie is the best thing
Sometimes a lie is the best thing

Oh the best thing
Is the best thing

Tracy Chapman - Telling Stories

There is fiction in the space between
The lines on your page of memories
Write it down but it doesn't mean
You're not just telling stories
There is fiction in the space between
You and me

There is fiction in the space between
You and reality
You will do and say anything
To make your everyday life
Seem less mundane
There is fiction in the space between
You and me

There's a science fiction in the space between
You and me
A fabrication of a grand scheme
Where I am the scary monster
I eat the city and as I leave the scene
In my spaceship I am laughing
In your remembrance of your bad dream
There's no one but you standing

Leave the pity and the blame
For the ones who do not speak
You write the words to get respect and compassion
And for posterity
You write the words and make believe
There is truth in the space between

There is fiction in the space between
You and everybody
Give us all what we need
Give us one more sad sordid story
But in the fiction of the space between
Sometimes a lie is the best thing
Sometimes a lie is the best thing

FINALLY ! Wow, what a song.

LearnAmericanEnglishOnline

Awesome! I remember the first time I heard this song and then learning how to play it on guitar. It's not that hard, but who can sing like Tracy Chapman?

Andrew Clover

Tracy Chapman can sing like Tracy Chapman. That's about it.

yeoworld

indeed, she is unmatched. I am learning some of her songs as well but as you said 😁

Chris Lees

Joan Armatrading

frank sontowski

come on, you can do it.

Jonnnn

For all the plaudits that Tracy Chapman receives I still feel she is massively underrated as a singer and songwriter, one of the best ever

Drew Durbin

Sadly image is a large part of the equation in today's music. Put her in the 1960s different stories

Japheth Amores
