Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
Gm    F     Dm    C
Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah.
Gm    F     Dm    C
Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah,
Am7!
Aaah.

Verse 1:
       Dm       F/C             G/B
In a white room     with black curtains
A# C         Dm     F | G A#
  Near the station.
            Dm      F/C          G/B
Black roof country,     no gold pavements,
A# C      Dm       F | G/B A#
  Tired starlings.

 C      Dm    F/C           G/B
Silver horses     run down moonbeams
A# C        Dm        F | G A#
   In your dark eyes.
 C           Dm   F/C          G/B
Dawn-light smiles     on your leaving,
A# C     Dm       F | G Gm
  My contentment.

Chorus:
      C             Gm
I'll wait in this place
           A#         A
Where the sun never shines;
 C             G
Wait in this place where the
  A#     C            D
Shadows run from themselves.

Verse 2:
          Dm        F/C          G/B
You said no strings     could secure you
A# C        Dm     F | G A#
   At the station.
          Dm     F/C           G/B
Platform ticket,     restless diesels,
A# C       Dm      F | G/B A#
  Goodbye windows.

C        Dm   F/C         G/B
I walked into     such a sad time
A# C        Dm     F | G A#
   At the station.
C     Dm         F/C         G/B
As I walked out,     felt my own need
A# C      Dm      F | G Gm
  Just beginning.

Chorus:
      C           Gm
I'll wait in the queue
           A#         A
When the trains come back;
C              G
I'll wait for you, where the
  A#     C            D
Shadows run from themselves.

[Instrumental] = [Intro]

Verse 3:
        Dm   F/C          G/B
At the party     she was kindness
A# C       Dm         F | G A#
   In the hard crowd.
      Dm    F/C          G/B
Consolation     from the old wound
A# C      Dm     F | G/B A#
  Now forgotten.

 C      Dm    F/C              G/B
Yellow tigers     crouched in jungles
A# C       Dm        F | G A#
   In her dark eyes.
  C          Dm      F/C          G/B
She's just dressing,     goodbye windows,
A# C      Dm       F | G Gm
  Tired starlings.

Chorus:
      C              Gm
I'll sleep in this place
          A#      A
With the lonely crowd;
 C          G
Lie in the dark where the
  A#     C            D
Shadows run from themselves.
