Intro: D, Am7, G x 2 - bass, piano and drums

Verse – palm muted strumming with Celtic harp
            D                   Am7    G
As she leads me through the palace
               D                       Am7          G           
She points out that it aint paint its real gold
                  D           Am7       G
She seems to know every story 
               D          Am7           G               
That these walls have ever told

              D             Am7         G
And were standing by a river on a balcony
          D     Am7          G
Until security move us along
        D               Am7         G
And I take her by the arm and I whisper

This would be a good place to sing you one of my songs

Chorus
D, Am7, G x2
she says I wish, I wish

Verse
              D                  Am7                G
Well in the club theres hardly room to stand
                         D      Am7                             G
Theyre playing the blues, its getting real loose in here
              D                 Am7           G
I close my eyes and let the guitar wash over me
            D                    Am7       G
I feel the weight of this city, disappear

               D                 Am7            G
Outside he offers me a cigarette
           D                Am7 G
Knows I just cant turn em down
                D                       Am7       G
With cherry candy glowin from his lips

he says it must be about time that you jumped town

Chorus
D, Am7, G x2
and I wish, I wish

Verse
                D                       Am7                     G
Well, its that time of the night so I put my cards on the table
        D                   Am7             G
Offering the last train ride back to mine
          D                     Am7                  G
Uncomfortably she turns to her friends in the station
           D                    Am7             G
Explains shell be going my way for the night

               D                   Am7          G
Shes only coming over for one thing
        D               Am7     G
And it aint a cup of tea
        D               Am7           G
Lying naked with her hair on my shoulder

I murmur that you like gold to me

Chorus
D, Am7, G x2
She says I wish, I wish


Break
Em                             Asus2
Well he knows hes quite a talker
Em                      Asus2
At night we debate fiercely
Em                    Asus2
But at 3am curled up in my thoughts
Em                      Asus2
Well she agrees with me

Verse
                D               Am7       G
That theres an ancient way of living
        D                       Am7       G
Buried deep within our bones
            D                 Am7        G
Theres a desire within in each of us 
                D             Am7       G               
To burn our money to burn our clothes
        D                  Am7          G
And to hurtle towards a freedom
      D              Am7        G
To run the race alone
               D                        Am7     G
To leave society and all its machines 
                
To leave the city and these assholes.

Chorus
D, Am7, G x 2 (Outro riff - see notes)
I said I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish

Outro
D, Am7, G x2
But you just cant stay, but you just cant escape

D, Am7, G x2
And you just cant stay, and you just cant escape
