All Night Loud – The Cat Empire This is the closing song to the band’s fantastic album Steal the Light. The chords are very simple... Capo 1 Am Ever since I was 16 F I wished that spring would come to me F G And I wished that I could dance up on the isles. Am Sweat rivers on a stage of steam F I let my thoughts begin to dream F G C I held my breath and ran into the wild. Am And each night a horizon grew F In all of us or just a few F G Til morning’s gold would make it disappear. Am Yet somewhere in my treasured chest F Is not forgot what must forget F G C But that’s a feeling for another year. Am And movement has a way like words F You’re there before the rhyme is heard F G And all that one can do is shape the ride. Am The miles of a forgotten dream F Are yours my love it’s where we’ve been F G C And maybe one day soon we will arrive. C F C Playing all night loud, C F C Playing all night loud, G Am F Sing it all night with me, F G C All night loud. Am And we went on a whirlwind trip F The nights unwound the records flipped F G And stillness came like chaos in the lights. Am And voices like devotion flew F Across the sea from me to you F G C In music that I still cannot describe. Am And there were ugly times it’s true F Some from me and some from you F G And devils have a way of digging down. Am But a friend is not a friend for life F Unless your life is worth the strife F G C So hold on we’ll be alright. C F C Playing all night loud, C F C Playing all night loud, G Am F Sing it all night with me, F G C All night loud. Am There’s a speech that I know well F Was told by Henry V I’ll tell F G A version that relates to us not war. Am ‘He who sheds his sweat with me F Will be my friend eternally F G C From this day to the ending of the world’. Am No matter if we’re young or old F Or in the sun or in the cold F G I hope I can remember your bright eyes. Am Cos I know you and you know me F At least somehow mysteriously F G C So thank you my dear friends and that’s goodnight. C I’m much obliged, F I’m much obliged. F G C So thank you my dear friends and that’s goodnight. C I’m much obliged, F I’m much obliged. F G C So thank you my dear friends and that’s goodnight.
