(VERSE) (C)Down in the street they're all (F)singing and (C)shouting Staying (G/B)alive though the (Am)city is (G)dead (G/F)Hiding their (C/E)shame behind (G7)hollow (C)laughter While (C/E)you are (F)crying (D7/F#)alone on your (G)bed
(C)Pity Cassandra that (F)no one (C)believed you But then (G/B)again you were (Am)lost from the (G)start (G/F)Now we must (C/E)suffer and (F/A)sell our (C/G)secrets (F6)Bargain, (G)playing (Am)smart, (Dm7)aching (G)in our (C)hearts
(CHORUS) Sorry Cassandra I (G7)misunderstood Now the last day is (C)dawning Some of us wanted but (G7)none of us could Listen to words of (C)warning But on the darkest of (E)nights Nobody (Am)knew how to (E)fight And we were caught in our (Am)sleep Sorry Cassandra I (G7)didn't believe You really had the (C)power I only saw it as (G7)dreams you would weave Until the final (C)hour
(VERSE) So in the morning your ship will be sailing Now that your father and sister are gone There is no reason for you to linger
You're grieving deeply but still moving on You know the future is casting a shadow No one else sees it but you know you're fate Packing your bags, being slow and thorough Knowing, though you're late, that ship is sure to wait
(VERSE) I watched the ship leaving harbour at sunrise Sails almost slack in the cool morning rain She stood on deck, just a tiny figure Rigid and restrained, blue eyes filled with pain
I'm sorry Cassandra I'm sorry Cassandra
