Coney Island -- Antje Duvekot -- The Near Demise of the High Wire Dancer
Tabbed by Travis Hussey (mr_flycstr@yahoo.com)

Verse 1:
Well the Empire State is gleaming, and it's a perfect Friday night
Hold me down 'cause I am feeling high as a kite
'Cause I'm not living for the landing, tonight I'm living for the flight
Don't wanna capture the moment, I just wanna let it go by

Chorus:
'Cause in a world so full of troubles I think that we've seen enough
They'll still be here tomorrow when the sun comes up

Verse 2:
Well in a cab that crosses Brooklyn, I'll be your stolen pirate-bride
And I still feel like I am falling when I look in your eyes
And in the dunes at Coney Island will you kiss me on the lips
Like it was the first time and I will pretend to resist

Chorus 2 w/ vocal solo (I... I... I..., ah... ah... ah...)

Verse 3:
So will you hold me until we crumble under a dying August moon
Buy me an old-fashioned rootbeer 'cause one day the old world will lose
And we'll go dancing on the levy with the sand beneath our feet
'Cause time passes with such violence we're just heartbeats on a sea

Chorus 3:
'Cause in a world full of troubles I think that we've seen enough
And they'll still be here tomorrow, they'll still be here tomorrow,
They'll still be here tomorrow when the sun comes up
