Verse:
   G                Em
We lended our heavy hearts,
   G               Em
motors with broken parts,
   C*              C                  G      Em
we had a deck of cards it was a start.
   G               Em
We'd sit out in the sun,
  G                Em
and wait for our skin to turn,
  C*    
you would ask for truth,
  C**                                  G      Em
and I would look for something to burn.         

Chorus:
F                 C                   Em
Oh we walked in a hallowed place back then
                    Am                  F
the edge of Dublin, the edge of May and June.
                C            Em
Oh to live in a paper house again,
Am            C                   G     Em
where we grew by the light of the moon.

G    Em

  G               Em
Often we took the train,
  G                     Em
the sky pacing white to grey,
  C* 
when you or I would leave
        C**
and the others would stay.
  G                 Em
We were all that we had
    G                       Em
and breathed in each others word,
  C*      
I would ask for truth
    C**                         G     Em
and you'd look for something to burn.

Chorus

G    Em

  G                   Em
You were much younger then,
  G               Em
younger than I am now,
  C*                               C**
I still keep as much an eye as the wires allow,
  C*                               C**
I still keep as much an eye as the wires allow.

Chorus

G    Em    G    Em

F                C          Em
Oh you know what you are to me
                      Am     F
and you know you will always be.


    C         C*        C**

The intro shows how the chords are played throughout the song.
During the chorus Em is played like this:
e|--------|
B|---0----|
G|-----0--|
D|----2---|
A|--2-----|
E|--------|

Unfortunately I wasn't sure about how the diffrent C-chords are called.
