******** 
        G
I have seen the streets and alleyways
      C
Of a million faceless towns
Am7
The camera comes, the camera goes
Am7
Filming our blues for the late night news
    G           C  G
We gather round 
       G
Never searching for our innocence
      C
Our faith, our truth, our love
Am7
They're only there when things go wrong
Am7
Filming our blues for the late night news
    G           C  G
We gather round

VERSE 1
******** 
F#        G         A               Bm
There's a girl that lives in the shadows
F#     G                A     Bm
Of the street where the music plays
F#        G         A              Bm
There she waits and looks from the outside
F#         G        A   Bm
There's an angel in her face
F#           G         A             Bm
But from her glass she sips a little comfort
F#       G              D        Bm
From the boys she takes a little more
F#      G              A           Bm
And she knows just how far she can take it
F#   G            D          Bm
In a moment she's out on the floor

F#   G         D             Bm

Hold on, dance with the light
F#   G   A             Bm
Hold on, got to keep a-moving

Hold on, into the night

VERSE 2

F#     G         A                  Bm
In her eyes they thought they saw a question
F#    G      A             Bm
Maybe she is looking their way
F#      G         A              Bm
As the night gets older are they wiser
F#       G        A          Bm
Who will take her No-one can say
F#       G         A             Bm
Does she know just how they feel about her
F#        G         D            Bm
Can't she see she's driving them insane
F#       G      A            Bm
Could it be she doesn't even notice
F#       G                    Bm
When the music starts playing again

They're saying
