(Roland Orzabal / Curt Smith)
from the album Songs From the Big Chair


First guitar (chords):  C                                        Dsus4 

Verse One:

A9   A                     CMaj7     C
         I wanted to be with you alone
A9   A                           CMaj7     C
        And talk about the weather
           A9             A                       CMaj7                    C
But traditions I can trace against the child in your face
A9             A                      CMaj7           C          
    Won't escape my attention
A9               A                            CMaj7      C
    You keep your distance with a system of touch
A9             A                   CMaj7             C
    And gentle persuasion
     A9          A                     CMaj7           C 
I'm lost in admiration, could I need you this much
A9                            A                   CMaj7      C  
Oh you're wasting my time, you're just,     just, just wasting time


G                                       Em
Something happens and I'm head over heels
          G                  Em 
I never find out 'til I'm head over heels
G                                      Em
Something happens and I'm head over heels
Ah don't take my heart don't break my heart don't don't don't throw it away
A9      A       CMaj7     C
                   Throw it away
A9      A       CMaj7     C  
                   Throw it away 

Verse two (as verse one):
I made a fire and watching it burn
I thought of your future
With one foot in the past now just how long will it last
No, no, no have you no ambition
My mother and my brothers used to breathing clean air
And dreaming I'm a doctor
It's hard to be a man when there's a gun in your hand
Oh I feel so...


Verse Three (add tab intro throughout):

C                               Dsus4
            And this is my      four leaf clover
C                                                          Dsus4
I'm on the line, one open mind, this is my       four leaf clover
C                                    Dsus4              
La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la 
C                                         Dsus4 
La la la la la, la la la la  in my    mind's eye
One little boy, one little man, funny how
Time flies 

---- M. Triana  (
