Tu[C]mbling curls of [Cmaj7/E]green by sta[F]ined-glass streaming l[Dm7]ight
And a [Dm7]yellow-co[G7]loured la[C]mpshade[Cmaj7/E] used to [Fmaj7]keep us up all n[G7]ight
And a sm[C]ile upon your[Cmaj7/E] face, a te[F]ar upon your che[Dm7]ek
And the [Dm7]night sky [G7]on the w[C]ind[Cmaj7]ow, your h[Fmaj7]eart calling out to [G7]me


Come r[C]unning home ag[Am/D]ain Kat[Cmaj7]ie, come run[F]ning home aga[Dm7]in
Cr[F]oss my h[G]eart and h[C]ope to [Cmaj7]die if I [Fmaj7]cause another [G7]tear in your eye
( Kat[C]ie )

The m[C]irror that wont[Cmaj7/E] talk and your n[F]ightgown on the d[Dm7]oor
And the [Dm7]old p[G7]edal [C]Sin[Cmaj7]ger,   [Fmaj7]just don't sing no [G7]more
You can r[C]oll the reels for[Cmaj7/E] hours from the m[F]ovie of this [Dm7]book
It's a [Dm7]question [G7]mark on this h[C]eart of [Cmaj7]mine
   sends an [Fmaj7]elder back to [G7]look


Now I'm l[C]ooking from a [Cmaj7/E]tunnel,   b[F]ack into the r[Dm7]oom
With the [Dm7]genius [G7]of a [C]drui[Cmaj7/E]d     when the s[Fmaj7]unlight found the [G7]tomb
And I'm n[C]ever going[Cmaj7/E] back there and I co[F]uldn't a[Dm7]nyway
Cos [Dm7]though I m[G7]ade the gr[C]eat [Cmaj7/E]escape,   I [Fmaj7]never got aw[G7]ay
