Intro

G  G(F#)


        G       G(F#)                    G        G(F#)
This is London, the place where you're a god or a disgrace

               G             G(F#)           G              G(F#)
The whole wide world at your feet to see the look upon your face

        C           G                       C                G
And you watch the BBC and you think, "Well, what if that was me?"

        C        G       C        C
Such a promising life to waste.



    G         G(F#)                   G                 G(F#)
You told me, "Just be brave. Remember all the gifts you gave.

            G                  G(F#)
And how you felt like you were saved,

              G                       G(F#)
Like you were singing from beyond the grave."

        C                  G                 C               G
And you said you'd wait for me until the day I could sing on key

              C         G          C
"There's just something about your face."



           C             G              D                 C
Then you'd call, I could feel your body fall down next to me,

      G            D       C     G             C           G
And I wanted us to be fast asleep, closer than anything to me,

     C       G    C         C
Like we were home again...



          G              G(F#)         G                 G(F#)
There was just no way to know what was real and what was show

          G                  G(F#)                 G               G(F#)
A future unfolding before my eyes, and a past that I could not let go

            C             G
And how the feeling is so deep

                    C               G
when you're running down the London streets

             C       G       C     C
Like there's nowhere left to go.



          G              G(F#)          G         G(F#)
Among the faceless dizzy whores, the unimaginable bores,

         G                  G(F#)         G                G(F#)
Evenings stumbling from the pub, mornings shivering on the floor

         C                G                        C              G
Then the careless way you say, "Yeah, we were just glad we got to play."

            C     G      C
When you're empty to the core.



           C             G         D                      C
Then you'd call, I could feel your body fall down next to me,

      G            D       C      G               C          G
And I wanted us to be fast asleep,   closer than anything to me,

     C       G    C      C
Like we were home again.

                            G
I'm so tired of the rain.


        G          G(F#)                G              G(F#)
This is London, the place where you get lost without a trace

          G          G(F#)          G               G(F#)
Among the beautiful remains of this shattered human race

        C             G               C                G
All the words that go unsaid, all the sacrifices of the dead,

             C               G                  C                G
"We'll fall quietly into the past or we'll just burn the streets instead"

       C                G                 C                            G
In the clamoring of the crowd, you think, "I'll just stay quiet, instead."



        C       G            D                   C
All the fallen dizzy angels crawling through the street,

     G               D              C
The pleas of people weary on their feet,

 G                   C              G
   And you're half a world away from me,

       C      G         C
As the clouds drown the light.


                       G
I wonder where you are tonight.
