Manic Street Preachers - A Billion Balconies Facing The Sun
From Postcards From A Young Man


I really enjoy playing this song acoustically, so here are the chords for it

During the solos I normally mess around and make something up that fits and
sounds better unplugged rather than on the electric, so go wild and have fun!

You need to listen to the song to pick up the strumming pattern, its really simple to get!

(Please rate if you can!)

...Intro...
Am F C G

...Verse 1...
Am                     F
We've finally found a way
          C               G
To consume boredom every day
Am                             F
We've all become our personal gods
          C                   G
We've all become so sad and lost
So sad, so sad, so sad and lost

...Chorus...
F                              C
A billion balconies facing the sun
          Em                    
A billion faces turned to their screens
F
The perfect answer to camouflage our screams
F                            C
A billion lies becoming the truth
    Em
An ecstasy of the eye
   F
As wide as eternity tonight
As wide as eternity tonight

...Solo 1...
Am F C G

...Verse 2...
Am                          F
We found expression for our hate
        C                   G
Without any kind of consequence
Am                     F
Who needs patience anymore
      C                   G
When all our pleasure's virtual
Pleasure's, pleasure's, pleasure's virtual

...Chorus...
F                              C
A billion balconies facing the sun
          Em                    
A billion faces turned to their screens
F
The perfect answer to camouflage our screams
F                            C
A billion lies becoming the truth
    Em
An ecstasy of the eye
   F
As wide as eternity tonight
As wide as eternity tonight

...Solo 2...
Am  Dm Am F   C   G
Am        F   C   G

...Chorus...
F                              C
A billion balconies facing the sun
          Em                    
A billion faces turned to their screens
F
The perfect answer to camouflage our screams
F                            C
A billion lies becoming the truth
    Em
An ecstasy of the eye
   F
As wide as eternity tonight
As wide as eternity tonight

...Coda...
Dm F (X4)
F Fmaj7
C
Em
