[Verse 1]

    C5                                    C/E  
The boy had a way with words, he sang, he moved with grace 

                  Fm            C7/G 
He entertained so naturally, no gesture out of place 

    Fm/Ab            Bbm                      Bbm7/Ab 
His road in life was clearly drawn, he didn't hesitate 

   Ebm          F#m6/A  Fm7-5    Ddim  Bbm7-5  E6      Bb7/Ab         
He played, they saw, he conquered as   the     master  of, 
  
       Ebm     Ebsus2/F   Ebm/F#  Eb7/G 
as the master  of  his    fa...   te……… 


    Abm              Abm/Gb  Emaj7            F#/E 
The girl had an iron soul    no-one could recognize 

   B/Eb    E                F#        Eb7/G 
Material ambition that her gentleness disguised 

    Abm             Abm/Gb  Emaj7         F#/E 
She gave herself to him    certain of his fame 

F#m/A           F#sus2/Ab     Ab 
Wanted him for luxury for limelight and his name 

           Bbm7/Ab   Ab7 
And then he sang  to her... 


[Verse 2]
 
  C#       A        C#         A#m      D#m Ab7  C# 
I love you for your silence, I love you for your peace 

C#            C#maj7  C#7   F#           F#m 
The still and calm        releases, that sweep into my soul 

C#           C Ab7 C# 
That slowly take   control. 

  C#        A       C#          A#m     D#m  Ab7  C#
I love you for your passion, I love you for your fire 

C#          C#maj7  C#7   F#              F#m 
The violent desire, that burns me in it's flame 
C#       C    Ab7 C# 
A love I dare not name. 


[Chorus]

             C#       A              C#
His rise was irresistible - yeah, he grew into the part 
    D#m         Ab7            C#
His explanation simply that he suffered for his art 
   C#          C#maj7  C#7      F#        F#m
No base considerations of some glittering reward 
    F#    F#m       C#CAb7 C#
The prize was knowing that (his work) his work was noticed     and        adored. 
  C#                        A        C#
I love you (yes I love you) for your silence (for your silence) 
  A#mD#mAb7 C#
I love you        For        your         peace 
C#            C#maj7  C#7         F#            F#m
The still and calm releases, that sweep into my soul
C#          C     Ab7   C# 
And slowly slowly takes control. 

C#                  Bbm7     Ab7/Eb     C# 
He told the truth,  yes,  he  told  the truth (and he told the truth) 


          C#    A      C#
Accepting every honour with (with) a masterly display (display) 
   C#             Bbm7             Ab7/Eb           C# 
Of well rehearsed reluctance to be singled out this way 
   C#         C#maj7  C#7             F#            F#m
He started to believe that he was all they said and more(and more) 
    F#           F#m                                  C#     C   Ab7     C#
She forgot - she forgot the reasons (reasons) she had wanted him before - yeah. 

  C#       A        C#         
I love you for your passion (for your passion) 
  A#m      D#m  Ab7  C#
I love you for  your fire 
    C#      C#maj7  C#7              F#     F#m
The violent desire, burns me in it's flame (burns me) 
C#       C           Ab7  C#
A love I dare I dare not name. 


C#           C#maj7 C#7 F#   
The still and calm      releases (releases) 

     F#m 
That sweep into my soul (sweep into my soul) 

     C#/G# 
That slowly (slowly) slowly (slowly) slowly (slowly) 

                                                G#7    F#   F#7 C# 
slowly (slowly) slowly (slowly) slowly (slowly) slowly take control. 


[Verse 3]

C5                                   C/E 
And when at last they fell apart she wished that she could be 

                      Fm            C7/G 
The hardened heart of yesterday, as cynical as he 

   Fm/Ab            Bbm     Bbm7/Ab                F#maj7 
By changing for the better  she had changed things for the worse 
                        
    Ebm       F#m6/A       Fm7-5  Ddim     Bbm7   Bb Bb7/Ab 
The words that made   them happy  once now e...........choed ... 

Ebm    Ebsus2/F  Ebm/F#  Eb7/G 
echoed  as a     curse........ 


[Outro]

Abm    Abm/Gb  Emaj7  F#/E  F#m/A   F#sus2/Ab   Ab  Ab9
