 Under the ruins of a walled city
 Crumbling towers in beams of yellow light
 No flags of truce, no cries of pity
 The siege guns have been pounding all through the night

 It took a day to build the city
 We walked through the streets in the afternoon

 As I returned across the fields I'd known
 I recognized the walls that I once made
 I had to stop in my tracks for fear

    B7      B7sus  B7        B7sus
 Of walking on the mines I'd laid


 	Chorus:

	     Em   D           G    C       D      C    D            
	 And if I built this fortress around your heart

 	      Em  D      G        C          D   C  D
 	Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire

  	     Em     D       G       C     D	    C	      D
 	Then let me build a bridge, for I cannot fill the chasm

 	     Eb    F       Eb    F         G
 	And let me set the battlements on fire

 	Intro riff 2 times

 
 Verse:

 Play riff #1 on these two lines

 Then I went off to fight some battle
 That I'd invented inside my head


 Play riff #2 on these two lines

 Away so long for years and years
 You probably thought or even wished that I was dead


 Play riff #3 for these three lines

 While the armies all are sleeping
 Beneath the tattered flag we made
 I had to stop in my tracks for fear

    B7      B7sus  B7         B7sus
 Of walking on the mines I'd laid

 	Repeat Chorus

 Verse: 

 Play riff #1 on these two lines

 This prison has now become your home
 A sentence you seem prepared to pay

 Play riff #2 on these two lines

 It took a day to build the city
 We walked through it's streets this afternoon

 Play riff #3 on these three lines

 As I returned across the lands I'd known
 I recognized the fields where I'd once played
 I had to stop in my tracks fear

    B7      B7sus  B7         B7sus
 Of walking on the mines I'd laid

 	Repeat Chorus

 Go back to intro riff.
