Intro G7 Cm6 G7 Cm6 G7 Cm6 G7 Cm6

 
So I’m  
G7 
there
Cm6 
Charging around with a  
G7 
juggernaut 
 
brow
Cm6 
Overdraft, speeches and  
G7 
deadlines to make
Cm6 
Cramming commitments like  
G7 
cats in a sack
Cm6 
Telephone burn and a  
G7 
purposeful gaitWhen  
Cm6 
out of a doorway the  
G7 
tentacles stretchOf a  
Cm6 
song that I knowAnd the  
G7 
world moves in  
Cm6 
slow-mo
G7 
Straight to my headlike the  
Cm6 
first cigarette of the  
G7 
day
 
And it’s  
Cm6 
you, and it’s  
G7 
MayAnd we’re  
Cm6 
sleeping through the  
G7 
dayAnd I’m  
Cm6 
five years  
G7 
agoAnd three  
Cm6 
thousand miles  
 
away
 
G7 
 
Cm6 
 
G7 
 
Cm6 
Do I  
G7 
havetime? A  
Cm6 
man of my calibre
G7 
Stood in the street like a  
Cm6 
sleepwalking 
 
teenager
G7 
No.And I  
Cm6 
dealt with this years ago
G7 
I took a hammer to  
Cm6 
every mementoBut  
G7 
image on image like  
Cm6 
beads on a rosary
G7 
pulled through my head  
Cm6 
as the music takes holdand the  
G7 
sickener hits; I can  
Cm6 
work till I breakbut I  
G7 
love the bones of you
Cm6 
That, I will never es
G7 
cape
 
And it’s  
Cm6 
you, and it’s  
G7 
MayAnd we’re  
Cm6 
sleeping through the  
G7 
dayAnd I’m  
Cm6 
five years  
G7 
agoAnd three  
Cm6 
thousand miles  
G7 
awayAnd I  
Cm6 
can’t move my  
G7 
armThrough the  
Cm6 
fear that you will  
G7 
wakeAnd I’m  
Cm6 
five years  
G7 
agoAnd three  
Cm6 
thousand miles away
