Song title:         Au Cinéma
Original Release:   Forget EP
Original Album:     Is Your Love Big Enough?

Words and Music by Lianne La Havas & Matt Hales
Copyright © 2012 Warner Music UK Limited
Published by Warner Music UK Limited

NOTES:
Another gorgeous song with a lilting jazz feel...
Although the song has easy chords, the key to the sound is Lianne's finger-
picking, which you just have to practise, I'm afraid.
It's not enough to know the chords; the song has to sway...


VERSE:
Notes:
Lianne picks the open Em9/Em7 chords more or less as in the guitar figure. 
An alternative is to find a strumming pattern for the open Em9 - Em7.
Play around with these chords and try to find a pattern that works for you.

On the Gm7 chord she frets on and off the 2nd string at the 5th fret.

Chords:
Em9    075770
Em7    075900
Gm7    353333
A7     575655

                   Em9-Em7
Sometimes when you talk, mm-hmm,
                                             Gm7
And I'm your Betty Boo, and we're singing it close
Like the girls in Belleville rendez-vous 
  Em9-Em7
I wish that we could somehow freeze the frame
                   Gm7
But this isn't the silver-screen, oh no,
           A7     Gm7   A7
There's no pause, no re-wind


CHORUS:
Notes:
The chords follow the same picking pattern as for the the VERSEs.

Chords:
Em9   075770
Em7   075900
Gm7   353333
A7    575655

Em9-Em7
Time to find out where the story goes,
Sadly too hip with the curtains closed,
Gm7
Watching ourselves au cinéma
Em9-Em7
Taking our positions as the cameras roll,
You'll be the guy, I'll be the girl,
Gm7                                  A7
Watching ourselves au cinéma, cinéma-ah


VERSE:
Chords:
Em9   075770
Em7   075900
Gm7   353333
A7    575655

                  Em9-Em7
Now we cut to the girl, alone
She's found on the Brooklyn Bridge
                   Gm7
And she's truly at home,
Oh, her step has a whole new spring
           Em9
Big bright lights of the city are shining for her
There's a thirst in her eyes, and her heart,
                           Gm7
'Though she thinks to look back, back, she won't...
           A7     Gm7   A7    Gm7 A7     Gm7   A7
There's no pause, no re-wind; no  pause, no re-wind


CHORUS:
Chords:
Em9   075770
Em7   075900
Gm7   353333
A7    575655

Em9-Em7
Time to find out where the story goes,
Sadly too hip with the curtains closed,
Gm7
Watching ourselves au cinéma
Em9-Em7
Taking our positions as the cameras roll,
You'll be the guy, I'll be the girl,
Gm7                                  A7  Gm7  A7
Watching ourselves au cinéma, cinéma-ah


[repeat CHORUS: this time play Em9 on "cinéma-ah"]


CODA:
Notes:
Finger-pick as for VERSE/CHORUS.

Em9-Em7           
...Where the story goes...
                     Gm7
...With the curtains closed...
                             Em9-Em7
Watching ourselves au cinéma...
Em9-Em7
Taking our positions as the cameras roll,
You'll be the guy, I'll be the girl,
Gm7                                  
Watching ourselves au cinéma, cinéma-ah


[end on Gm7]
