A beautiful song which is very straightforward to play... 

Standard tuning, Capo 1 to replicate the key used on the recording


Intro 
=====

Bm  G  Bm  G  Bm  G  Bm  G


Verse 1
=======

Bm            A
Take a moment if you dare
G                Bm
Catch yourself a breath of air
G               Gbm
There's another life out there
    Bm
And you should try it


Verse 2
=======

Bm                A
Dead ends hide on every street
G               Bm
Look before you place your feet
G                   Gbm
Cracks and fissures keep the beat
        Bm
And you're inside it


Refrain 1
=========

Bm
Every thought you never dared to think
G
Every mood you always knew would sink
Bm
Every line you spoke out loud in a jest
G
All the time you took to be your best
Bm
Soon forgotten

G Bm G


Verse 3
=======

    Bm             A
The sun must never touch your skin
   G                Bm
It could expose the dark within
       G          Gbm           Bm
You're paranoid a-bout the para-noia

    Bm              A
And panic hits with-out a sign
    G              Bm
You worry about it all the time
G             Gbm         Bm
Every perfect moment is a hidden warning


Refrain 2
=========


    G
Cuz everything makes your pretty head spin
    Bm
And nagging thoughts are starting to sink in
     G
With everything this way it's better to forget
     Bm                     A
Than end up in a place with something to regret

Bm G Bm G


Verse 4
=======

     Bm            A
Your transatlantic shopping spree
     G              Bm
Your health forever guarantees
   G         Gbm                Bm    
Or-ganic bio life's a breeze in cosy prisons

    Bm                A
But hiding out in the salad bar
G           Bm
Isn't gonna get you far
    G               Gbm        Bm
And bottled wine is vinegar to-morrow


Refrain 3
=========

G
Everything around here makes your pretty head spin
    Bm
Its piling up high and you're back where you begin
G
Moments you have tried so hard to forget
    Bm                         A
Are promising to have been the best ones yet


Refrain 4
=========

Bm
Every time you shut your eyes it appears
G
Every time you trace your steps back here
Bm
None of your convictions have the same old ring
G
No doubt you found a place for everything
   Bm/E
In cosy prisons

G


Verse 5
=======

Bm             A
  So if you're careful
    G         Bm
You won't get hurt
    G                 Gbm
But if you're careful all the time
     Bm
then what's it worth

I hope I've done it justice!
