The brilliant blues, don't want to be frozen
G                              C          D
 I'll spend my mornings at the sunshine cafe
     G                     C             D
I've read the news and the clique-ridden notions

 I know that now is the time to say

CHORUS
    G                    C          D         [G]
The brilliant blues will never flow this way again
G                   C        D
  The colour of the Mersey’s grey
    G                    C          D          [G]
The brilliant blues have faded into sadness and pain

  And now is the time to say ... It's time

      Em                                              [Cmaj7]
We'll get far away from the blues and the mist in the rain
Cmaj7                                         [Cmaj7]
You and me are going to fight until we win the day
    Cmaj7                   F            Bb   C
For now is the time that we must say goodbye [to the ...]
