Subject: "Jigsaw" by Marillion
These are, I believe, the chords to "Jigsaw" by Marillion:
We are [F#] jigsaw pieces, aligned on the perimeter edge,
[B] Interlocked through a missing [F#] piece.
We are re[F#]naissance children, becalmed beneath the bridge of sighs,
For[B]ever throwing firebrands at the [F#] stondework.
We are [Abm] siamese children [E] related by the [F#] heart.
[Abm] Bleeding from the [E] surgery of i[F#]nitial confrontation.
[Abm] Holding the word [E] scalpels in trembling [F#] lips.
Stand [Abm] straight, [E] look me in the eye
and [B] say good[F#]bye.
Stand [Abm] straight, we've [E] drifted past the point
of [B] reasons [F#] why.
[Abm] Yesterday start to[E]morrow,
tomorrow [B] starts to[F#]day.
And the [Abm] problem always seems to be we're [E] picking up the pieces
on the [B] rico[F#]chet [C#sus4].
[Abm] This is the [F#] ricochet.
2nd verse: same chords
2nd chorus: same chords until:
... picking up the pieces on the [B] rico[F#]chet.
[Dm] [F] This is the [C] rico[Bb]chet.
Are we [Dm] trigger happy? [F] Russian roulette in the [C] waiting room [Bb].
[Dm] Empty chambers [F] embracing the [C] end [Bb].
[Dm] Puzzled visions [F] haunt the ripples of a [C] trevi [Bb] moon.
[Dm] Dream coins for the fountain [F] or te cover your [C] eyes [Bb].
We [Am] reached ignition point [F] from the sparks of [G] pleasantries.
We [Am] sensed the smoke ad[F]vancing from ho[G]rizons.
You[Am] must have known that [F] I was considering an e[G]scape.
Stand [C#m] straight, [A] look me in the eye
and [E] say good[B]bye.
Stand [C#m] straight, We've [A] drifted past the point
of [E] reasons [B] why.
[C#m] Yesterday starts to[A]morrow,
tomorrow [E] starts to[B]day.
And the [C#m] problem always seems to be we're [A] picking up the pieces
on the [E] rico[B]chet.
[Bm] [G] This is the [A] ricochet....
I'll be [Bm] seeing you again [G] on the [A] ricochet....
Well, that's it. By the way, does anybody out there understand anything
of these lyrics? I don't!
