"Symphony in Blue"
By Kate Bush
From 1978's "Lionheart"

Intro: Gmaj7    Dm7    Gmaj7    Dm7

Gmaj7                         Em                             C
I spent a lot of my time looking at blue, 

Cm                                                              G
The colour of my room and my mood: 

                         Bb            Am       
Blue on the walls, blue out of my mouth;

G                                                     Bb                  Am                     
The sort of blue between clouds, when the sun comes out, 

G                                                 Bb             Am      Gmaj7   Gm7  Dm7
The sort of blue in those eyes you get hung up about. 

Gmaj7                         Fm                           Em7
When that feeling of meaninglessness sets in, 
       Cm7                                    G
Go blowing my mind on God: 

                                  Bb                Am
The light in the dark, with the neon arms,

G                              Bb       Am                     G 
The meek He seeks, the beast He calms, 

                                     Bb             Am          G
The head of the good soul department. 

Gm    G    Gm    G4    G(add9)    

   Bb               Fm
I see myself suddenly 

D7                    F7sus4
On the piano, as a melody.

       Bb                         D7 
My terrible fear of dying 

      Eb                                  D
No longer plays with me, 

Gm                   Fm                           Ebmaj7
For now I know that I'm needed 

    For the symphony. 

Gm     Dm7     Gm     Dm7

(Same as verse)
I associate love with red, 
The colour of my heart when she's dead; 
Red in my mind when the jealousy flies, 
Red in my eyes from emotional ties, 
Manipulation, the danger signs. 

(Same as verse)
The more I think about sex, the better it gets. 
Here we have a purpose in life: 
Good for the blood circulation, 
Good for releasing the tension, 
The root of our reincarnations. 

(Same as refrain)
I see myself suddenly 
On the piano, as a melody. 
My terrible fear of dying 
No longer plays with me, 
for now I know that I'm needed 
For the symphony. 

Gmaj7                                  Em                         C 
       I spend a lot of my time looking at blue--

           Cm7                  G      Bb    Am
No wonder that I blew it! 

G     Bb      Am      Gmaj7     Gm7     Dm7
