Time Passages

as recorded on Time Passages by Al Stewart
(words and music by Al Stewart and Peter White)

Eb Bb|  Ab/Eb|Eb Bb|Gm7 Ab/Bb|  Eb        Bb/Eb      |Gm            Ab   |
                         It was late in December. The sky turned to snow.

              Bb      Cm    Bb   Ab    Eb            Bb/Eb    Gm         Ab
All'round the day was going down slow. Night, like a river, beginning to flow
           Bb 	        Cm Bb Ab           	
I felt the beat of my mind go drifting into

Eb   Bb/Eb Ab/Eb Eb    Bb              Cm     F    
time passages. Years go falling in the fading light. 
Eb Bb/Eb        Ab/Eb Bb Ab                  Gm        Bb
Time passages.           Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight.

Eb Bb/Eb|  Ab/Eb|Eb Bb|Gm7 Ab/Bb|     Eb          Bb/Eb   Gm          Ab   
				Well, I'm not the kind to live in the past.

		Bb              Cm   Bb  Ab   Eb              Bb/Eb 	
The years run too short and the days too fast. The things you lean on are

Gm                Ab                           Bb        Cm Bb   Ab  
things that don't last. Well it's just now and then my line gets cast 

into these

Eb  Bb/Eb       Ab/Eb Eb       Bb                          Cm    F
time passages.        There's something back there that you left behind.
Eb   Bb/Eb      Ab/Eb Bb Ab                Gm         Bb        
Time passages.           Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight.

Eb Bb/Eb|  Ab/Eb|Eb Bb|Gm7 Ab| Cb                  Abm6/Cb    
				Hear the echoes and feel yourself starting
   Eb    Cb                        Abm6/Cb            		       Cm F 
to turn. Don't know why you should feel that there's something to learn.

		                | Eb Bb/Eb|  Ab/Eb|Eb Bb|Gm7 Ab/Bb| 
It's just a game that you play.

          Eb        Bb/Eb                 Gm        Ab                
Well, the picture is changing. Now you're part of a crowd. They're laughing

   Bb             Cm  Bb  Ab   Eb           Bb/Eb           Gm           Ab
at something, the music's loud. A girl comes toward you you once used to know.

                   Bb               Cm  Bb Ab 
You reach out your hand, but you're all alone in those

Eb   Bb/Eb    Ab/Eb Eb        Bb                         Cm     F 
time passages.       I know you're in there, you're just out of sight.
Eb   Bb/Eb    Ab/Eb Bb  Ab                     Gm         Bb        
Time passages.          Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight.

    |Eb Bb/Eb|  Ab/Eb|Eb Bb|Gm7 Ab/Bb|

                 repeat and fade......
