I Live on a Battlefield  Nick Lowe

Capo 2nd fret
E A D G B e
B7: 0 2 1 2 0 0
[Em] [D] [C] [B7]  
[Em] [D] [C] [B7]  
I live on a [Em]battlefield
[C]Surrounded by the [G]ruins of the [Em]love we built
[C]And then destroyed [G]between us
The [Em]smoke has cleared
As I [C]stumble through the [G]rubble
I'm [Em]dazed, seeing [C]double
And I'm truly [G]mystified
My new [G]home is a [B7]shell hole filled
With [Em]tears and [G]muddy water
And [Em]bits of broken heart
All [G]around there is [B7]desolation
And [Em]scenes of [G]devastation
Of a [B7]love been torn apart
I live on a [Em]battlefield[D] [C] [B7]
I live on a [Em]battlefield[D] [C] [B7]
I live on a battlefield
The one where not one single drop of blood has spilled
Is no less horrifying
Sweet memories, memories
Of a bygone situation
Now shattered lord and battered
Lie scattered all around
My new home is a shell hole filled
With tears and muddy water
Yes and bits of broken heart
All around there is desolation
And scenes of devastation
Of a love been torn apart
I live on a battlefield
I live on a battlefield
[Em]Everything that can [C]has gone wrong
[G](I live on a battle[B7]field)
[Em]It's gonna take spine to [C]carry on
[G](I live on a battle[B7]field)
[Em]Like a drowning man coming [C]up for air
[G](I live on a battle[B7]field)
[Em]I'm looking for another [C]survivor
[G]But I can't see one any[B7]where
My new [Em]home is [C]filled with [G]muddy water
[Em]All around there's [C]bits of broken [G]heart
[Em]My world is [C]one of [G]desolation
And [C]scenes of deva[G]station
There [C]is no conso[G]lation
[B7]For a love been torn apart
I live on a [Em]battlefield[D] [C] [B7]
I live on a [Em]battlefield[D] [C] [B7]
I live on a [Em]battlefield, ba[D]tt[C]lefiel[B7]d
I live on a [Em]battlefield
[D] [C] [D] [C] [Em]
