Half A Dream Away   Ocean Colour Scene











Half A Dream Away with Ocean Colour Scene (Revised)
This how I think Half A Dream Away is played.I think it sounds quite right.
If you disagree you could always mail me at oscar.widegren@nykoping.com.
This song doesn't include any real chords except for during the trombone
solo and the fade-out when it's some kind of chords but they are very quite
so it's hard to tab that. After the fade-out there is a little part I didn't
manage to tab. But I will when I have time. The notes between the brackets
are them who are palm-muted or played very silent.
Revised: I have corrected the verse.

Verse:
We're just half a dream away
Sitting on our fences
Building up defences
Making up the rules by wich we play
We're just half way down the road
Staking our positions
Stupid superstitions
Only give fools to heavy a load

Chorus:
The magpie screeched and the window is shattered
Her body's bruised but her soul's not battered
The fireman tried but the hose was frozen
The cupboards bare but the door needs closing

Verse 2:
We spend half our time away
From being where we want to
And seeing who it's fun to
Not blaming ourselves for our mistakes
We spend half a dream away
Looking out of windows
Waiting for a signal
Waiting for night to turn to day

Chorus 2:
The tree was bare but the birds were singing

The milk turned sour and my thirst needs quenching
The meat was dead and I need me feeding
The room was cold but the night was freezing

Trombone solo
Chorus 3 & 4:
The rainbow frowned when the sun was shining
A baby's snatched on a beautiful morning
A dog runs wild and the breaks are screaming
A church on fire is struck by lightning
The dead man's hands had beautiful fingers
The princess frowned at her lovers mistress
She went insane and poisoned the children
A teacher's drowned and a child is laughing

We're just half a dream away x4
Mysterious part
