                             Friday night I'm going nowhere
 Fmaj7Cmaj7Fmaj7
 All the lights are changing green to red
 Cmaj7
 Turning over TV stations
 Fmaj7Cmaj7Fmaj7
 Situations running through my head
 Cmaj7
 Looking back through time
 Fmaj7
You know it's clear that I've been blind
 Cmaj7Fmaj7
I've been a fool 
 Cmaj7
 To open up my heart
 Fmaj7Cmaj7Fmaj7
To all that jealousy, that bitterness, that ridicule
 Cmaj7
 Saturday I'm running wild
 Fmaj7Cmaj7Fmaj7
 And all the lights are changing red to green
 Cmaj7
 Moving through the crowd I'm pushing
 Fmaj7Cmaj7Fmaj7
 Chemicals all rushing in  my bloodstream 
 Cmaj7
 Only wish that you were here
 Fmaj7
You know I'm seeing it so clear
 Cmaj7Fmaj7
I've been afraid 
 Cmaj7
 To show you how I really feel
 Fmaj7Cmaj7Fmaj7
 Admit to some of those bad mistakes I've made
 Cmaj7G
 If you want it
 Dm
Come and get it
 Fmaj5
Crying out loud
 Cmaj7G
 The love that I was
 Dm
Giving you was
 Fmaj7
Never in doubt
 Cmaj7G
 Let go of your heart
 Dm
Let go of your head
 Fmaj7
And feel it now
 Cmaj7G
 Let go of your heart
 Dm
Let go of your head
 Fmaj7
And feel it now
 Cmaj7Fmaj7
Babylon,  
 Cmaj7Fmaj7
Babylon,  
 Cmaj7Fmaj7
Babylon 
Sunday all the lights of London
Shining sky is fading red to blue
Kicking through the Autumn leaves
And wondering where it is you might be going to
Turning back for home
You know I'm feeling so alone
I can't believe
Climbing on the stair
I turn around to see you smiling there
In front of me
If you want it
Come and get it
Crying out loud
The love that I was
Giving you was
Never in doubt
Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now
Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now
Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now
Let go of your heart
Let go of your head
And feel it now

Having looked at it again, whilst I have always played this in it's original key of EbMaj7 in barre chords, I can now see that it is even better if played in CMaj7 (open chords) with capo placed on the third fret. David Gray plays it in DMaj7 with capo on the first fret, but I believe CMaj7 is perhaps easier as in the verse CMaj7 can be followed by FMaj7 which is an easier transition than DMaj7 to GMaj7
