Babylon   David Gray

[Cmaj7]     [Fmaj7]  [Cmaj7]     [Fmaj7]  [Cmaj7]     [Fmaj7]  [Cmaj7]     [Fmaj7]  [Cmaj7]Friday night I'm going nowhere
[Fmaj7]All the lights are changing green[Cmaj7] to red[Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]Turning over TV stations
[Fmaj7]Situations running through my[Cmaj7] head[Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]Looking back through time
You know it's [Fmaj7]clear that I've been blind
I've been a fool[Cmaj7] [Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]To open up my heart
To all that [Fmaj7]jealousy, that bitterness, that [Cmaj7]ridicule[Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]Saturday I'm running wild
[Fmaj7]And all the lights are changing red[Cmaj7] to green[Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]Moving through the crowd I'm pushing
[Fmaj7]Chemicals all rushing in  my bloodstream[Cmaj7] [Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]Only wish that you were here
You know I'm s[Fmaj7]eeing it so clear
I've been afraid[Cmaj7] [Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]To show you how I really feel
[Fmaj7]Admit to some of those bad mi[Cmaj7]stakes I've made[Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]If you want it[G]
Come and get it[Dm]
Crying out loud[Fmaj5]
[Cmaj7]The love that I was[G]
Giving you was[Dm]
Never in doubt[Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]Let go of your heart[G]
Let go of your head[Dm]
And feel it now[Fmaj7]
[Cmaj7]Let go of your heart[G]
Let go of your head[Dm]
And feel it now[Fmaj7]
Babylon, [Cmaj7] [Fmaj7]
Babylon, [Cmaj7] [Fmaj7]
Babylon[Cmaj7] [Fmaj7]
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
Babylon, [Cmaj7] [Fmaj7]

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
