An Occasional Dream  David Bowie

               [Bm]    [Em]    [A]              

I re[D]call how we [F#m]lived
On the [Am]corner of a [Am7]bed
And we'd [C]speak of a Swedish room[G]
Of hessian and [Eb]wood
And we'd [D]talk with our [F#m]eyes
Of the [Am]sweetness in our [Am7]lives
And to[C]morrows of rich surprise[G]
Some things we could [Eb]do  [F]   [A]

[C]In our madness we burnt one hundred days
Time takes time to pass
And I still hold some ashes [Eb]to me
An o[F]ccasional dream

Bridge: A7 A7sus4 A7 A7sus4
         [Bm]    [Em]    [A]                    

And we'd [D]sleep, oh so [F#m]close
But not [Am]really close our [Am7]eyes
'Tween the [C]sheets of summer bathed in blue[G]
Gently weeping [Eb]nights
It was [D]long, [F#m]long ago
And I [Am]still can't touch your [Am7]name
For the [C]days of fate were strong for you[G]
Danced you far from [Eb]me  [F]   [A]

[C]In my madness I see your face in mine
I keep a photograph, it burns my wall with time
[Eb]Time an o[F]ccasional dream
Of [Eb]mine an o[F]ccasional dream
Of [Ab]mine an oc[Bb]casional [A]dream of [Dm]mine[C]   [G]   [Bb]    [A7]
