Em G D Asus A Bm F#maj F#min Bmaj G* A*

(First time through, play D string and higher)
[Em]A cold winter s[G]un
My feet undergr[D]ound [Asus] [A]
[Em]A pale windless c[G]ity
A numbness for so[Bm]und
I'll w[A]ait, back he[Em]re
All that you no[G]tice
A moment in t[D]ime [Asus] [A]
[Em]A photograph l[G]ost here
Since you were m[Bm]ine
I'll w[A]ait back h[G]ere [D]
[F#m]Or should I start p[Bm]ushing my w[A]ay bac[G]k
Should I[F#m] start p[Bm]ushing my[A] way ba[G]ck
(Same as verse 1 chord progression)
I walk past your room
In deep silhouette
You're tired of racing
You're down and I said
I'll wait, back here
A cold end, an evening
A soaked cigarette
I'm asleep on a shoulder that I've never met
I'll wait back here
Or should I, start pushing my way back
Should I start pushing my way
[F#maj]Cold, and the whis[G]key is wearing
And I[A]'m on the edge of my br[Bm]eath
And I'm thi[G]nking of leaving
[A]I could just lay down
A Bmaj G* A*
Lay down and freeze to death.
[Bmaj]Yeah... Ye[Em]ah, Ye[A]ah, Ye[D]ah
[Em]Ohhh[Asus].... [A]
Bmaj G* A* Bmaj
Ye[Em]ah, Ye[A]ah, Ye[D]ah
[Em]Ohhh.... Hold [A]on
(Opening Chord Progression)
A cold winter sun
My feet underground
A pale windless city
A numbness for sound
