Verse 3

Cracks between the paving stones
Like rivers of flowing veins
Strange people who know me
Peeping from behind every window pain
The girl I used to love
Lives in this yellow house
Yesterday she passed me by
She doesn't wanna know me now 

Repeat chorus

A chord like this

I ended up with a preacher
Full of lies and hate
I seemed to scare him a little
So he showed me to the golden gate


Repeat chorus
