Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is REM's new song off there forthcoming album. I'm sure its all correct. Just
follow the pattern for the verse and chorus and when the break comes i have shown
how the chords work out. The lyrics in Brackets are backing vocals which are sung
at the end of the line.

Leaving New York

Em         Eb

Em               Eb             C                 Bb        Am7
It's quiet now, and what it brings is everything... 
Em          Eb                  C                   Bb      Am7
comes calling back a brilliant night, I'm still awake 
Em           Eb                   C              Bb      Am7
I looked ahead I'm sure I saw you there 
Em             Eb                    C                  Bb         Am7
you don't need me to tell you now, that nothing can compare 
G                            D
you might have laughed if I told you 
C                          Am
you might have hidden the frown 
G                              D
you might have succeeded in changing me 
C                           Am
I might have been turned around
G                                 D 
It's easier to leave than to be left behind 
C                   Am
leaving was never my proud 
G                     D
leaving New York never easy 
C                     Am
I saw the life fading out
 
now life is sweet and what it brings I tried to take... 
the loneliness, it wears me out, it lies in way 
and on our lost till in my eyes, shadow of necklace across your thigh 
i might have lived my life in a dream, but i swear, this is real 
Memory fuses in shatters out glass, but carry your future, forget the past 
but it's you, it's what i feel. 

you might have laughed if I told you  (it's pulling me apart) 
you might have hidden the frown  (change) 
you might have succeeded in changing me (it's pulling me apart) 
I might have been turned around (change) 
It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart) 
leaving was never my proud (change) 
leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart) 
I saw the light fading out 

Em         Eb

Em                           Eb
you find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart 
Em                          Eb
you find it in your heart, change... 
G                                  D
i told you, forever, I love you, forever   (you find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart)
C                                     Am 
i told you ,I love you, I love you, forever (you find it in your heart, change) 
G                                    D
i told you, forever, I love you, forever (you find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart) 
C                                     Am
i told you, I love you, I love you, forever (you find it in your heart, change) 

you might have laughed if I told you (forever, forever,I told You, forever) 
you might have hidden the frown  (change) 
you might have succeeded in changing me  (it's pulling me apart) 
I might have been turned around  (change) 
It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart) 
leaving was never my proud  (change) 
leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart) 
I saw the life fading out  (change) 
leaving new york never easy (it's pulling me apart) 
I saw the light fading out (change) 
Leaving new york never wasy (it's pulling me apart) 
I saw the life fading out (change)
