                  Sovereign Light Cafe - Keane
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm pretty sure these chords are correct, they sound right when you play along 
anyway, even if they're not the exact chords keane uses.

Tuning: Standard
Capo on 1st fret


Chords:
         E A D G B E

Verse 1:
          A
I'm going back to the time when we owned this town
     D5
Down Powder Mill Lane, in the battlegrounds
        A                      F#m      Esus4   E
We were friends and lovers and clueless clowns


Verse 2:
                     A       
I didn't know I'd be finding out now I was torn from you
        D5
When we thought about things we were gonna do
        A                      F#m     Esus4  E
We were wide eyed dreamers and wiser too


Chorus:
               D               A
Go down to the rides on East Parade,
       F#m                      E
by the lights of the Palace Arcade
                   D                     A       Esus4  E
Watch night coming down on the Sovereign Light Café


Verse 3:
                         A
I'm begging you for some sign, but you've still got nothing to say
       D5
Or I'm turning back home and I'm walking away
      A                     F#m      Esus4  E
I'm a better man now than I was that day


Chorus
               D                A 
Go down to the rides on East Parade,
       F#m                     E
by the lights of the Palace Arcade
                   D                     A       Esus4  E
Watch night coming down on the Sovereign Light Café
               D                A
Go down to the bandstand on the pier
          F#                      E
Watch the drunks and the lovers appear
                    D                      A        Esus4  E
Take time, just the stars at the Sovereign Light Café


Bridge:
  D    Esus4 A          E
I wheel my bike off the train,

Up the North Trade Road,
D       Esus4 A        E
Look for you on Marley Lane
                         F#m
In every building, every streetlight
                   D              Esus4  E
Oh why did we ever go so far from home?


Verse 4:
                       A~
You keep on leaving me mile long traces of who you are
        D5~
You can get a big house and a faster car
        A~                    F#m~      Esus4  E 
You can run away boy, but you won't go far


Chorus:
                     D                A
Let's go down to the rides on East Parade,
       F#m                     E
by the lights of the Palace Arcade
                  D                     A      Esus4  E
Watch night going down on the Sovereign Light Café
                   D                A
Stroll down to the bandstand on the pier
          F#m                    E
Watch the drunks and the lovers appear
                    D                      A       Esus4  E
Take time, just the stars at the Sovereign Light Café 

      D           A    F#m
La la la la la la la laYeah, 
    E                      D       A   Esus4  E

Chords sound perfect to me so 5* but if you're interested the correct lyrics are:

I'm going back to a time when we owned this town
Down Powdermill Lane and the Battlegrounds
We were friends and lovers and clueless clowns

I didn't know I was finding out how I'd be torn from you
When we talked about things we were gonna do
We were wide-eyed dreamers and wiser too

We'd go down to the rides on East Parade
By the lights of the Palace Arcade
and watch night coming down
On the Sovereign Light Café

I'm begging you for some sign
But you've still got nothing to say
Don't turn your back on me, don't walk away
I'm a better man now than I was that day

Let's go down to the rides on East Parade
By the lights of the Palace Arcade
and watch night coming down
On the Sovereign Light Café
Let's go down to the bandstand on the pier
Watch the drunks and the lovers appear
To take turns as the stars
Of the Sovereign Light Café

I wheel my bike off the train
Up the North Trade Road
And look for you in Marley Lane
In every building, every street sign
Oh why did we ever go so far from home?

Well you've got nothing to hide
You can't change who you really are
You can get a big house and a faster car
You can run away boy, but you won't go far

Let's go down to the rides on East Parade
By the lights of the Palace Arcade
and watch night coming down
On the Sovereign Light Café
Let's go down to the bandstand on the pier
Watch the drunks and the lovers appear
To take turns as the stars
Of the Sovereign Light Café

Play with capo on 2 to go along with the official released version. Sounds pretty good!
