Verse:
[Cm]On the day the wal[Cm(add]l came [b5)]down, they [Cm]threw the locks o[Cm]n t[(add]o the[b5)] ground
[Fm/Ab]And with glasses high we raised a cry for [Gsus4]freedom had arrived[G]
[Cm]And on the day the [Cm(add]wall ca[b5)]me down
[Cm]The ship of fools had [Cm(add]finally[b5)] run aground
[Fm/Ab]Promises lit up [Gsus4]the night like pa[G]per doves in flight
Chorus:
I dre[F]amed you [G/F]had left [F]my side. No warmth not e[G/F]ven p[F]ride rema[F/C]ined-[C]-
[F/C] And e[F]ven though y[G/F]ou need[F]ed me, it was clear that [G/F]I could [F]not
do a t[F/C]hing [C]for you[C] [G/C] [G/B]
Verse:
[Cm]Now life devalues[Cm(add] day by[b5)] day
[Cm]As friends and ne[Cm(add]ighbour[b5)]s turn away
[Fm/Ab]And there's a change that even [Gsus4]with regret can not be un[G]done
[Cm]Now frontiers shift lik[Cm(add]e deser[b5)]t sands,
[Cm]while nations wash their[Cm(add] bloodi[b5)]ed hands
[Fm/Ab]Of loyalty, of history, [Gsus4]in shades of grey[G]
Chorus:
I wok[F]e to the [G/F]sound of [F]drums
The[G/F] music played,[F] the morn[F/C]ing sun strea[C]med in
[F/C]I turned[F] and I looke[G/F]d at yo[F]u,
a[G/F]nd all but the bitt[F]er residue slip[F/C]ped awa[C]y,
[C]slip[G/C]ped aw[G/B]ay
