                       * French Films - Escape In The Afternoon *
                       ******************************************

Brilliant song by young fins French Films from their debut album "Imaginary Future".
Very easy to play and nice to sing along on a cosy sunny afternoon while the sun 
is sinking ;) Perfect record for spring and summertime!
Have fun!



Intro:

synth is playing A, guitar kicks in (about 0:17) with A as well



Verse:
   A       E        A         E
Oh take me anywhere you could
            A                 E                  A          E              
Imagine and faithfully I will break the prison I was born in


   A       E            A          E
Oh take me anywhere the sun shines
         A           E          A          E
Away the harms of mankind off my shoulders




Refrain:

 Bm                          D
'Cause anything that we were meant to be
    A                   F#m                Bm
Was lost but I want to escape in the afternoon
            D                   A      A
To see the youth run through my hands




1st bridge:

A    E     A    E   A  
       Sometimes I miss
  E              A         E    (listen carefully to get the pattern)
My old friends in my home town



Verse:
          A      E         A          E
But don't take me anywhere it makes me
         A             E              A      E
To dream about a life without a past with you




Refrain:
  Bm                          D
'Cause anything that we were meant to be
    A                   F#m                Bm
Was lost but I want to escape in the afternoon
            D                   A      A
To see the youth run through my hands


    Bm                     D
And anything that we were said to be
    A                F#m                Bm
Was ruled in the juvenile grey industry mind
            D                A      A
Now do you see yourself that way




2nd Bridge + Solo

  D          A            D             A    (2x, 2nd guitar plays the solo)

  D          A            D             A 
Huhuuhuhu  Huhuuhuhu    Huhuuhuhu     Huhuuhu   



Refrain:
     Bm              D
When everything they wanted to be
    A                  F#m            Bm
The better people on a map of turning backs
       D                   A       A
Oh I'd just like to try to breathe


  Bm                          D
'Cause anything that we were meant to be
    A                   F#m                Bm
Was lost but I want to escape in the afternoon
            D                   A      A
To see the youth run through my hands


Bm           D                    A    F#m
  To see the youth run through my hands
Bm           D                    A        end with continuing slapping A
  To see the youth run through my hands

Thanks for the chords =)

But I would suggest to repeat the A and D in the first line, sounds more like they play in the song, something like this:

A D A D
Oh take me anywhere you could

The verse should be A E all the time. So:

A E A E
Oh take me anywhere you could

Chorus should be. Bm - D - A - F#m
Bm - D - A - A
