Your Possible Pasts

Pink Floyd

YOUR POSSIBLE PASTS
Pink Floyd
(Waters)
 GAm
They flutter behind you your possible pasts,
 CDG
Some brighteyed and crazy, some frightened and lost.
 GAm
warning to anyone still in command
 CDG
 Of their possible future, to take care.
 GAm
In derelict sidings the poppies entwine
 CDG
With cattle trucks lying in wait for the next time.
 Em
 Do you remember me, how we used to be,
 D
Do you think we shoud be closer?
 GAm
She stood in the doorway, the ghost of a smile
 CDG
 Haunting her face like a cheap hotel sign.
 GAm
Her cold eyes imploring the men in their macs
 CDG
For the gold in their bags or the knives in their backs.
 GAm
 Stepping up boldly one put out his hand.
 CDG
He said, "I was just a child then, now I'm only a man."
 Em
 Do you remember me,  how we used to be,
 D
Do you think we should be closer?
 EmCEmCEmDCDCmaj9GAm
                                  By the cold and religious we were taken in hand
 CDG
Shown how to feel good and told to feel bad.
 GAm
 Strung out behind us the banners and flags
 CDG
Of our possible pasts lie in tatters and rags.
 Em
 Do you remember me, how we used to be,
 D
Do you think we should be closer?
