*CAPO 4th FRET*

(Original Key: C#m)


Intro:

Am

Verse 1:

Am
 Looking down on empty streets,
Am7
 All she can see,
        F
Are the dreams all made solid,
        Dm7
Are the dreams made real.

Am
 All of the buildings,
Am7
 All of the cars.
     F
Were once just a dream,
   Dm7
In somebody's head.

    Am
She pictures the broken glass,
Am7
 Pictures the steam.
    F
She pictures a soul,
     Dm7           (Am)
With no leak at the seam.

Bridge 1:

Am
 Let's take the boat out,
(Wait until darkness).
Let's take the boat out,
(Wait until darkness comes).

Verse 2:

Am
 Nowhere in the corridors,
   Am7
Of pale green and grey.
F
 Nowhere in the suburbs,
       Dm7
In the cold light of day.

Am
 There in the midst of it,
     Am7
So a-live and alone.
F                   G
 Words support like bone.

Chorus 1:

            C   F  G
Dreaming of Mer-cy Street,
Am               Em   F
 Where you're in-side out.
            C      F  G
Dreaming of mercy,
        Am             G
In your daddy's arms a-gain.

            C   F  G
Dreaming of Mer-cy Street,
Am                Em   F
 Swear they moved that sign.
            C      F  G
Dreaming of mercy,
        Am
In your daddy's arms...

Interlude:

Am7, F (x3), Am

Verse 3:

Am
 Pulling out the papers,
         Am7
From the drawers that slide smooth.
F
 Tugging at the darkness,
Dm7
 Word upon word.

    Am
Con-fessing all the secret things,
       Am7
In the warm velvet box,
       F
To the priest; he's the doctor,
       Dm7
He can handle the shocks.

Am
 Dreaming of the tenderness,
    Am7
The tremble in the hips;
   F              G
Of kissing Mary's lips.

Chorus 2:

C    F  G
 Mer-cy Street,
Am               Em   F
 Where you're in-side out.
            C      F  G
Dreaming of mercy,
        Am             G
In your daddy's arms a-gain.

            C   F  G
Dreaming of Mer-cy Street,
Am                Em   F
 Swear they moved that sign.
            C      F  G
Dreaming of mercy,
        Am
In your daddy's arms...

Interlude:

Am7, F (x3) Am

Break:

Am
 Mercy...Mercy...
Looking for mercy.

Am      G
 Mercy...
            Am     G
Looking for mercy...
            Am     F
Looking for mercy...
            Am
Looking for mercy...

Coda:

Am
 Anne with her father,
   Am7
Is out in the boat,
F
 Riding the water,
Dm7                      Am
 Riding the waves on the sea.
