Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Gate  Sam Roberts

And for [G]sixty days I knew no other road
And [G]through the maelstrom, which turned in time with the kick drum
I was swallowed and twisted and spit out on a coast
And [G]in this place there stands a gate that leads to the heart of the city
And I've spent seven years and a sea of fears in this broken mirror of a city

[C]Listen to the streets there's a heartbeat missing in the [G]city
Sweet sunlight, I can see it in my mind's eye
And I remember feeling alright
And I saw black clouds and Turin shrouds and it smelled of a faded empire

[G]It's all concrete and steel, we're asleep at the wheel, and the mayor's just a gun for hire
[C]Listen to the streets there's a heartbeat missing in the [G]city
[C]Listen to the sound there's a time bomb ticking in the [G]city
[G]I've heard the song the morning sings
Outside the gate is everything
[C]Let in the light! Let in the light!
[G]Streetwalker said to me she has no need for history
[C]She has the key she has the key
[G]Sweet sunlight, I can see it in my mind's eye
[C]Let in the light! Let in the light!
G (slow down tempo)
Waking up from a dream where I was the stone and you were the stream
Chemical City isn't all that you need but it's all that you're getting and they've hidden the key
[C]Listen to the streets there's a heartbeat missing in the [G]city
[C]Listen to the sound there's a time bomb ticking in the [G]city
I said this place is an unnatural disaster
And I'm a visitor here so I asked her:
[C]Where are the trees, where are the [G]trees?
And she said free yourself from history
[C]That is the key! That is the [G]key!
Sweet sunlight, I can see it in my mind's eye
C G (speed up - ROCK and ROLL)
I see the light! I see the light!

G(2 bars of 4:4 strumming) C x8 (same rythem as G intro)

G (steady palm muted strumming)
G (louder)
Can you feel it? There's a heartbeat missing in the city
When all the fat cats are hissing at your pity
Yeah the gate is gone so you better run
You better [G]run, run run [C]run...
You better [G]run, run run [C]run...
G C!
You better ru-------n!
