 Terminal Eyes by Al Stewart

Intro
-----
F#


F#
Cut glass porcupine sailing on the Serpentine

Fingers on the skyline pulling down the black blinds

Terminal eyes at the edge of the night

Rivulet of dark wine moving in a straight line

Smudging out the stop signs, running down the life lines

Terminal eyes at the edge of the night
G#
Shadows on the ceiling, coffee cup congealing,

Tarot cards revealing, a solitary feeling

Terminal eyes, but I think it's alright
C#
Silver studded jet plane screaming through the migraine

Cutting through the cellophane, wrappers of your tired brain

Terminal eyes - put out the light

Chorus
B                       D         E    B
Terminal Eyes, only the lonely Arabian skies
B                          D              E               B C#
Terminal Eyes, calling you home from your restless disguise.

F# (guitar solo)

Verse 2
-------
F#
Hands of the windmill moving to a standstill

Rain on the windowsill, ashes on the phone bill

Terminal eyes at the edge of the night

Rain drop fire-flies sparkle on the shop blinds

Echoes of the summertime flicker in the street-signs

Terminal eyes at the edge of the night
G#
Shadows on the ceiling, coffee cup congealing

Eyes that look unseeing, hands that move unfeeling

Terminal eyes, I think it's alright
C#
Silver studded sea plane breaking through the migraine

Cutting throught the cellophane, enveloping your tired brain

Terminal eyes: put out the light

Chorus
------
B                      D        E     B
Terminal eyes only the lonely Arabian skies
B                         D              E           B
Terminal eyes calling you home from your restless disguise
