Verse:
 
 ------

I stood in this unsheltered place
[D] 'Til I could see the face be[D/B]hind the face
[Bm/G] [A] [D] 
All that had gone before had left no trace
[D] [D/B] 
Chorus:
 
 -------

Down by the railway siding
[G] [D/F#]  
In our secret world, we were colliding
[G] [D/A]  
All the places we were hiding love
[G] [A/F#] [A] [D/B] 
What was it we were thinking of?
[G] [A] [D]  
[verse] 
So I watch you wash your hair
Underwater, unaware
And the plane flies through the air
[cborus] 
Did you think I didn't have to choose it
That I alone could win or lose it
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?
[verse] 
In this house of make believe
Divided in two like Adam and Eve
You put out and I receive
[cborus] 
Bridge:
 
 -------

[D bass riff] 
Oh the wheel it is turning spinning round and round
[D] [D] 
And the house it is crumbling but the stairways stand
[D] [D] 
..........................
[C/D] [D]  
With no guilt and no shame, no sorrow or blame
[D] [D]  
Whatever it is, we are all the same
[D] [D]  
Making it up in our secret world
[C/D] [D]  
Making it up in our secret world
[C/D] [D]  
Making it up in our secret world
[C/D] [D]  
Shaking it up
[C] [G]  
Breaking it up
[C] [G]  
Making it up in our secret world
[C] [G] [D]  
[verse] 
Seeing things that were not there
On a wing, on a prayer
In this state of disrepair
[cborus] 
Ssh, listen....
