                E
Well, you were happy where you were
          A                   E
But that girl she wheeled you in
               C#m             G#m
This time was never good enough
                A                  E
'Cause she was gone and seen everything

            E
And if you ever spoke of love
           A                 E
She just smiled and put you down
                C#m            G#m
'Cause she was making all the plans
            A                  B
She had a vision of light and sound


              E                      A    E   B
She said the neon on the river will light my way
         E                                  A     C#m       B
And everything that we've been dreaming of making real one day
              C#m
So save your money pack your bags
           A              B
We better run before we disappear
              E                       A      E     B
She took the train into the city but you're still here


            E
You hear a song that takes you back
          A             E
The song long for God tonight
                C#m                     G#m
And friends who said they hang your back
               A                             E
But they just turned them round and let you fight

            E
And in the bowling alley wall
          A                 E
You used all your smartest minds
                 C#m           G#m
But they'll be painted over now
                 A               B
Looks like here gonna get left behind


              E                      A    E   B
She said the neon on the river will light my way
             E                                  A     C#m       B
And all the things that we've been dreaming of making real one day
              C#m
So save your money, pack your bags
         A                        B
I wanna run with you on Stamford hill
              E                       A    E    B
She took the train into the city but you stood still


     C#m                   E
You stood still about the train
                 B
You knew as you watched her go
                      A
That she wan never coming back
     C#m                      E
And start to places that you know
                 B
You said you're scared if I
                  A
Ad I didn't want to go
                E
Where everyone else goes


              E                      A    E   B
She said the neon on the river will light my way
         E                                  A     C#m       B
And everything that we've been dreaming of making real one day
              C#m
So save your money pack your bags
           A              B
We better run before we disappear
              E                       A      E     B
She took the train into the city but you're still here
              E                       A      E     B
She took the train into the city but you're still here

I'm confused because that E chord in the verse and at the start of each line of the chorus sounds way too low, but right between the A and B at the end of each chorus line. Is it supposed to be: e 12 B 12 G 13 D 14 A 14 E 12 because that sounds more right to me?

Here's the piano bit after "where everyone else goes."

This is in a lower octave:

E|------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------0-0-----------------------------0-0-------------------------|
G|----------2-2-1-1-------------------------2-2-1-1-----------------|
D|-0-0--------------0-0-2-2-0-0-2-2-0-0-----------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------2-2-0-0-2-2-0-0-|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|


In the same octave as the intro already written:

E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----12-12-10-10-9-9---------------------12-12-10-10-9-9-----------------|
G|-7-7----------------7-7-9-9-7-7-9-9-7-7-----------------4-4-2-2-4-4-2-2-|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|


I might be wrong, but it sounded the same as the piano notes. :)
