U2 - Stay (Faraway, So Close !)

Capo 1

D Em G D

      D               Em
Green light, Seven Eleven
          G          D
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
          D                 Em
You don´t smoke, don´t even want to
      G                   D
Hey now, check your change
         D          E
Dressed up like a car crash
       G                           D              Em
Your wheels are turning but you´re upside down
                                    D              Em
You say when he hits you, you don´t mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
Em              G               D
Hey babe, is that what it is

Verse :

Red lights, gray morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depend´s on who´s around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip synch to the talk shows

Bridge :
Em                                       D
And if you look, you look through me
And when you talk, you talk at me
And when I touch you, you don´t feel a thing

Refrain :
If I could stay...
Then the night would give you up
Em                                  D
Stay...and the day would keep its trust
Em             G              D
Stay...and the night would be enough

Verse :

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio
With satelite television
You can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans
London, Belfast and Berlin

Bridge :
Em                               D
And if you listen I can´t call
Em                                    D
And if you jump, you just might fall
Em                          A
And if you shout, I´ll only hear you

Refrain :

If I could stay...
Then the night would give you up
Stay...then the day would keep its trust
Em              G
Stay...with the demons you drowned
Em              F#m
Stay...with the spirit I found
G              A                D
Stay...and the night would be enough

Verse :
        D               Em
Three o´clock in the morning
      G                 D
It´s quiet and there´s no one around
         D               Em
Just the bang and the clatter
        G                D
As an angel runs to ground
       D             Em
Just a bang and a clatter
        G                   D
As an angel hits the ground
