[Intro]
N.C

[Verse 1]
N.C
A smile for every passing car and when they stop with door ajar,
N.C
She shrugs and whispers `que sera` and turns her thoughts to the pillow,
N.C
Her face is etched with memories she finds no joy amid the sleaze,
N.C
It`s hard when you`ve been paid to please so she turns her head to the pillow.

[Chorus 1]
    F
Daylight comes she rests her head,
F
The beauty of an empty bed,
F
She dreams of happy days instead,
                  C
Of brooding on tomorrow.

[Verse 2]
C
She swapped her dreams of shining knights for pushers bars and money fights,
C
For nameless faces in red light so she turns her head to the pillow,
C
Those black eyes they don`t hurt no more she`s heard the jokes and jibes before,
C
She`s felt the long arm of the law so she turns her head to the pillow.

[Chorus 2]
    F
Daylight comes she rests her head,
F
The beauty of an empty bed,
F
She dreams of happy days instead,
                  C
Of brooding on tomorrow.

[Verse 3]
C
Taking drugs was not for fun it made her feel like going on,
C
But know she hurts when it`s all gone and she turns her head to the pillow,
N.C
She takes a blade and breaks her skin sweet life source flows from within,
N.C
The white clouds in her head grow dim and she turns her face to the pillow.

[Chorus 3]
    F
Sunlight creeps across her bed,
F
Pale beauty in a crimson bed,
F
No dreams of happy days ahead she`ll have no more,
N.C
Tomorrows.

[Outro]
N.C    for 38-40 bars then.

C
[Till Fade]
