You prop[C]el yourself into the arms of G[F]od, and Chr[G]ist and all the angels [Am]now,
You're h[D]igh above the people w[G]ho, you u[E]sed to call your equals
[C]I will stay behind and live this l[F]ife, you l[G]eft me as a witness,
[Am]Who can t[D]idy up yor business, [G]and record that someone lived here,
[C]In the shade of Trelick Tower, i[F]n those d[G]ays of living gently,
[Am]Something h[D]oly used to love me, [G]something h[E]oly used to touch me,
[F]Then he heard the voice I c[Em]ouldn't h[Dm]ear, he's g[G]one to where it sent h[C]im,[C2]
And [Am]now I'm praying for this pain to c[D]lear, he's w[D7]aiting on ascens[G]ion.
And [Am]now I'm praying but there's still no ch[Dm]ange, you're h[G]igh as Trellick Tower,
T[Am]hrow your h[D7]ead and when you let me sp[G]end my [G/Am]life trying to climb you,
[Am]And praying 'til my knees d[C6]on't f[Dm]old, praying 'til my hands [Dsus4]don't cl[Am]ose,
Praying 'til my fing[D]ers gl[G]ow.
And you've prop[C]elled yourself into the arms of G[F]od, and Chr[G]ist and all the saints,
Now [Am]I've been [D]walking through our house like [G]separa[E]tion made it sacred,
I[F]'ve been buried in the bo[Em]oks you l[Dm]eft, I t[G]reat them like they're anc[C]ient,
[C2]And I think [Am]relics ache for when the saint had [D]breath, they m[D7]iss the thing that changed th[G]em.
And I[Am]'m a relic and you're so, so h[Dm]igh, you're h[G]igh as Trellick Tower,
Th[Am]row your h[D7]ead and when you let me sp[G]end my life trying to climb you,
[Am]And praying 'til my knees [C6]don't f[Dm]old, praying 'til my hands [Dsus4]don't cl[Am]ose,
Praying 'til my fin[D]gers gl[G]ow.
And [F]in the shade of Trellick Tower, I s[Bb]pent a while tryi[C]ng to keep you,
[Dm]Tell all the pe[G]ople moving on, he[C]y, hey something h[A7]oly used to live here n[Bb]ow,
I'm a relic of a lo[Am]ve gone [Gm]by, kne[C]eling to address the s[F]ky,
And I[Dm]'ll keep praying 'til the binds un[Bb]tie, pray[C]ing but I don't know w[F]hy,
And [Dm]I'll keep praying 'til the binds un[G]tie, p[G7]raying but I don't know w[C]hy,
Oh, I[Dm]'ll pray until the language d[G]ies, pra[G7]ying 'cos you're so, so h[C]igh,
Can I spend my l[C2]ife trying to climb [F]you?
