1//VERTIGO

Unos, dos, tres, catorce! (Turn it up loud, captn')
{verse}
E                   D                        E
Lights go down, it's dark The jungle is your head,
Can't rule your heart a feeling's so much stronger than a thought 
your eyes are wide and though your soul, it can't be bought 
your mind can wander

{chorus}
E       D  
Hello hello (Hola!)
G                     A
I'm at a place called Vertigo (Donde esta)
     E                   D
It's everything I wish I didn't know 
       G           D               E
Except you give me something I can feel, feel

{verse}
The night is full of holes As bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold They twinkle as the Boys play rock and roll
They know they can't dance At least they know....

I can't stand the beat I'm asking for the cheque
The girl with crimson nails Has Jesus round her neck
Swinging to the music Swinging to the music / Oh oh oh oh

{chorus}
Hello hello / I'm at a place called Vertigo
It's everything I wish I didn't know 
But you give me something I can feel, feel

E-D-A  E             E D A             E D A              D
{ ~      Check mated      Shots fall ...     shove me in  yeah~)

{Solo break w/basic riff x 4}

D      E     D               E        {repeat}
All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be yours
     G                       A
Just give me what I want and no-one gets hurt...
{chorus}
Hello hello (hola!) / We're at a place called Vertigo (Donde esta)
Lights go down and all I know is that / you give me something 
      E              D           A        D    {repeat}
I can feel your love teaching me ho-o-o-o-o-ow
Your love is teaching me how, how to kneel... kneel
{Basic riff} Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah / Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah  ... Yeah {end on E}

Intro:

Do you feel anything at all

Just when you quit
I am you and you are mine
Love makes nonsense of space

And time will disappear 
Love and logic keep us clear
Reason is on our side, love

Verse:

G#                            D#   
The most you see the less you know
C#
The less you find out as you go home
G#                D#              C# 
I knew much more then, then I did now,
G#               D#     C#
Neon heart, day-glow eyes, city lit by fire flies,
G#                 D#             C#         
They're advertising in the sky for people like us.

Pre-Chorus:
B       C#
And I miss you when you're not around,
B           C#
I'm getting ready to leave the ground.

Verse riff (=main riff w/no D/G alternation + A a little different):

E E          D        A Asus4 A {repeat until ...
I was born a child of grace
Nothing else about the place
Everything was ugly but your beautiful face
...}   D            A     G 
And it left me no illusion

{Verse riff}
I saw you in the curve of the moon / In the shadow cast across my room
You heard me in my tune / When I just heard confusion

Chorus riff:
D     D5/C# D  D5/C# A   (repeat)
All because of you			    Verse riff picks off	
All because of you All because of you I am

{Verse riff}
I like the sound of my own voice / I didn't give anyone else a choice 
An intellectual tortoise / Racing with your bullet train

Some people get squashed crossing the tracks
Some people got high rises on their backs
I'm not broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me perfect again

Chorus
All because of you / All because of you / All because of you
  {Basic riff x1}
I Am... I Am

I'm being born
I just arrived, I'm at the door
Of the place I started out from 
           {Cont. verse riff, verse does NOT end with 'D    A G'}
And I want back inside

Chorus riff
All because of you x2 All because of you I am {end on E}
7// A MAN AND A WOMAN

Intro:  

Bm       A
Bm       A
G
F#m

Bm                  A
Little sister 
Bm                  A  G
Don't you worry about a thing today
F#m
Take the heat from the sun
Bm                     A
Little sister
Bm                     A  G
I know that everything is not ok
F#m
But you're like honey on my tongue

Em        G
True love never can be rent
Bm                          A
But only true love can keep beauty innocent

Gmaj7              A
I could never take a chance
G6                   A
Of losing love to find romance
Gmaj7                A
In the mysterious distance
G6        F#
Between a man and a woman

Gmaj7                 A
No I could never take a chance
G6                  A
Cos I could never understand
Gmaj7             A
The mysterious distance
G6        F#
Between a man and a woman

You can run from love
And if it's really love it will find you
Catch you by the heel
But you can't be numb for love
The only pain is to feel nothing at all
How can I hurt when I'm holding you?

I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman
And you're the one, there's no-one else
That makes me wanna lose myself
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

Em
Brown eyed girl across the street
A
On rue Saint Divine
Em
I thought this is the one for me
A
But she was already mine
G                       F#m
You were already mine

Little sister
Ive been sleeping in the street again
Like a stray dog
Little sister
Ive been trying to feel complete again
But you're gone and so is God

The soul needs beauty for a soul mate
When the soul wants the soul waits 

No I could never take a chance
Of losing love to find romance
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

For love and faith and sex and fear
And all the things that keep us here
In the mysterious distance
Between a man and a woman

Outro:  
Bm7         A
You'll see

Bm7         A
You'll see

D/A    

Gmaj7                  F#
How can I hurt when Im holding you?

{Verse}
G        D    A    A   G          D   A    A    G
From the brightest star Comes the blackest hole
You had so much to offer Why did you offer your soul?
I was there for you baby When you needed my help
Would you deny for others What you demand for yourself?

{pre-chorus}
D         A     D A  G
Cool down mama, cool off
Cool down mama, cool off

{chorus}
    Em                 G
You speak of signs and wonders
      D              A
But I need something other
          Em             G
I would believe if I was able
                       Em               G      G/F#
But I'm waiting on the crumbs from your table

{verse}
You were pretty as a picture / It was all there to see
Then your face caught up with your psychology
With a mouth full of teeth / You ate all your friends
And you broke every heart thinking / every heart mends
{pre-chorus}
{chorus}
You speak of signs and wonders
But I need something other
I would believe if I was able
But I'm waiting on the crumbs from your table
{chorus}
Where you live should not decide
Whether you live or whether you die
Three to a bed / Sister Ann, she said
Dignity passes by
{chorus}
And you speak of signs and wonders
But I need something other
I would believe if I was able
I'm waiting on the crumbs from your table {Verse riff until end}
