                            The Streets - Dry Your Eyes
                              A Grand Don't Come Free
                                      2004



 I've tabbed two different versions. One with a capo, one without.


 Version 1:


 Chords:
        
         A         (x02220)
         Dmaj9/F#  (200220)
         Bm7       (x24232) or (797777)
         D         (xx0232) or (x57775)
         E         (x79997)


 Intro:  Instrumental


 Verse 1: 
        A     
        In one single moment your whole life can turn 'round,
                                                          
        I stand there for a minute starin' straight into the ground,
  Dmaj9/F#
        Lookin' to the left slightly, then lookin' back down,

        World feels like it's caved in - proper sorry frown.
         A
        Please let me show you where we could only just be for us,

        I can change and I can grow or we could adjust,
  Dmaj9/F#
        The wicked thing about us is we always have trust,

        We can even have an open relationship, if you must,
        A
        I look at her she stares almost straight back at me,

        But her eyes glaze over like she's lookin' straight through me,
        Dmaj9/F#
        Then her eyes must have closed for what seems an eternity,

        When they open up she's lookin' down at her feet.


 Chorus 1:

        A
        Dry your eyes mate,
                                                        Dmaj9/F#
        I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up,

        There's plenty more fish in the sea,
        A
        Dry your eyes mate,
                                                       Dmaj9/F#
        I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts,

        But you've got to walk away now it's over.


 Verse 2:
        A
        So then I move my hand up from down by my side,

        It's shakin', my life is crashin' before my eyes,
   Dmaj9/F#
        Turn the palm of my hand up to face the skies,

        Touch the bottom of her chin and let out a sigh.
        A
        'Cos I can't imagine my life without you and me,

        There's things I can't imagine doin', things I can't imagine seein'
   Dmaj9/F#
        It weren't supposed to be easy, surely,

        Please, please, I'm beggin please.
        A
        She brings her hands up towards where my hands rested,

        She wraps her fingers round mine with the softness she's blessed with
   Dmaj9/F#
        She peels away my fingers, looks at me and then gestures,

        By pushin' my hand away to my chest, from hers.


 Chorus 2: As Chorus 1


 Bridge 1: (A cappella no chords)

        And I'm just standin' there, I can't say a word

        'Cause everythin's just gone

        I've got nothin'

        Absolutely nothin'


 Verse 3:
        A
        Tryin' to pull her close out of bare desperation,

        Put my arms around her tryin' to change what she's sayin'
  Dmaj9/F#
        Pull my head level with hers so she might engage in,

        Look into her eyes to make her listen again.
        A
        I'm not gonna fuckin', just fuckin' leave it all now,

        'Cause you said it'd be forever and that was your vow,
  Dmaj9/F#
        And you're gonna let our things simply crash and fall down,

        You're well out of order now, this is well out of town.
        A
        She pulls away, my arms are tightly clamped round her waist,

        Gently pushes me back and she looks at me straight,
        Dmaj9/F#
        Turns around so she's now got her back to my face,

        Takes one step forward, looks back, and then walks away.


  Chorus 3:

        A
        Dry your eyes mate,
                                                        Dmaj9/F#
        I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up,

        There's plenty more fish in the sea,
        A
        Dry your eyes mate,
                                                       Dmaj9/F#
        I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts,

        But you've got to walk away now it's over.


 Bridge 2:

     Bm7 
        I know in the past I've found it hard to say,
      D                             E
        Tellin' you things but not tellin' straight.
     Bm7
        But the more I pull on your hand and say,
      D              E
        The more you pull away.

 Chorus 4:

        A
        Dry your eyes mate,
                                                        Dmaj9/F#
        I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up,

        There's plenty more fish in the sea.


 Coda:  (A cappella no chords)
   
        Dry your eyes mate,
                                                      
        I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts,

        But you've got to walk away now.
