Intro ((Em-Em/Em7)x3 times ,then Dsus2)x4 times
[G]You stop in the old cafe where [Bm]you used to play pinball
[C] [Am] [C] 
And lo[G]ok for the air-raid shelter but it's gone and the cafe seems so
[G]small and all the gardens That [Bm]had trees and stolen apples
[C]now have small businesses [Am]flourishing in c[C]inder blocks[G]
[G]Then they will[Am] call your name [Bm]and hand you a gold watc[C]h
[G]Then they will[Am] call your name [Bm]but it doesn't sound like[C] much
[Em]And you'll never di[C]scove[Bm]r why it's like[Am] an old lover
[G]you can't touc[Am]h anymore It [Bm]doesn't mean much anym[C]ore
 Dsus2 Em/Em7--------Dsus2(riff intro)

when you go back in time back in time
[G]You head down to the local [Bm]try to find a focal point
[C]A scratch in the wallpaper [Am]but it's all been [C]wallpapered ov[G]er
[G]Down at the newsagents it's[Bm] all pornography
[C] [Am] [C] 
And [G]you try to get high again but it's like time-lapse photography
[G]Then they will[Am] call your name [Bm]and hand you a meda[C]l
[G]Or something m[Am]ore practical li[Bm]ke a whistling kett[C]le
[Em]and it'll test your me[C]tal J[Bm]ust try to k[Am]eep grinning
[G]knowing that t[Am]his feeling is I[Bm]ndulgence worse than s[C]inning
 Dsus2 Em/Em7--------Dsus2(riff intro)

Instrumental: G Bm C Am C (2 times then riff intro)
[G]Photographs with a glossy f[Bm]inish letters lovers never finished
[C]And there in a dusty drawer[Am] a necktie you onc[C]e wore[G]
[G]And a girl you tried to cou[Bm]rt made you feel about two feet short
[C] [Am] [C] 
Wher[G]e is she now today? What would she have to say?
[G]Then they will[Am] call your name [Bm]and hand you a pens[C]ion
[G]A bottle of pi[Am]lls that guarant[Bm]ee life extension[C]
[Em]and give you a mention[C] in t[Bm]he local boy[Am] makes good section
