ADRIAN BELEW - MAY 1, 1990
You can find it in the awesome album “Here”.


Intro FX + piano (not written)


Riff1 acoustic
I lived inside a tear

time magnified my fear
         B-        F#
that the world around me 
                 A     E
was only getting more severe

C           A
On May 1, 1990
F#                  G
something changed inside me
    C                 A
and I saw the stars align
      F#               G            E
and I knew that it was meant to be

riff electric
I didn't know at the time

my heart was on the line
        B-        F#
but the world was turning
                  A        E
and suddenly the sun was shining

C           A
On May 1, 1990
F#                  G
something changed inside me
    C                A
and I saw the stars align
      F#               G             E
and I knew that it was meant to be
Aopen            Gopen     Aopen     Gopen    Aopen   Dopen
In a city by the sun

riff2......................
Maybe when you saw me then
.......................................
you thought I had the world at my feet
...........................
maybe when you looked again
.......................
you saw how I was empty
....................
in a city by the sun

C           A
On May 1, 1990
F#                  G
something changed inside me
    C                A
and I saw the stars align
      F#                G             E
and I knew that it was meant to be
Aopen            Gopen     Aopen     Gopen    Aopen   Dopen
In a city by the sun

Like always, fell free to make this tab better.
This is a melodic song I love, strange parts but very lovely to play with guitar.
A real masterpiece from a real virtuoso.
Thank you Ade.
