This is from the album "Keep Going" an absolute brilliant song if you ask me
(which for some reason, no one ever does). I'm surprised to see there
aren't any other songs here by Stephen Duffy. 
So here are the chords for this one, "An Open Book", enjoy it.


C
We walked across the fields
Am
Through coarse December rain
Em                   G
I knew but could not say
                        C
That I’d lost our love again
                          Am
It will come in waves you said

In tides it will return
Em                       G
The winter moon took it away
                     F
It’s another beaches turn

F                             C
You think that life's an open book
                              G
Filled with pictures that you took
Bb                           Am
You close the book the story ends
                           F
And it was so hard to make friends
                             C
You close the book the story stops
                                 G
Sometimes you stay down from the knocks
                             Am
You can't always come out on top

C
I walked across the hillside
Am
I looked out on the view
Em                    G
It could've been a TV show
                    C
If I’d had a bigger crew
                 Am
I see my life reflected

In pearls shed by your eyes
Em                    G
I wish for pearls of wisdom
                            F
Not just tears and long goodbyes


F                             C
You think that life's an open book
                              G
Filled with pictures that you took
Bb                           Am
You close the book the story ends
                           F
And it was so hard to make friends
                             C
You close the book the story stops
                                 G
Sometimes you stay down from the knocks
                             Am          
You can't always come out on top


Dm                    
And when I wrote this song
C
I was on the run
Em
In a gold rush town
Am                           Dm
You didn’t think it was that good
                     C       Em7 Am
Even though you understood


F                         C
That life will be an open book
                              G
Filled with pictures that you took
Bb                           Am
You close the book the story ends
                           F
And it was so hard to make friends
                             C
You close the book the story stops
                                 G
Sometimes you stay down from the knocks
                             Am          
You can't always come out on top


F                             C
You think that life's an open book
                              G
Filled with pictures that you took
Bb                           Am
You close the book the story ends
                           F
And it was so hard to make friends
                             C
You close the book the story stops
                                 G
Sometimes you stay down from the knocks
                             Am          
You can't always come out on top
