Leaving New York  R.E.M.

This is REM's new song off there forthcoming album. I'm sure its all correct. Just
follow the pattern for the verse and chorus and when the break comes i have shown
how the chords work out. The lyrics in Brackets are backing vocals which are sung
at the end of the line.
Leaving New York
[Em] [Eb]  
[Em]It's quiet now, a[Eb]nd what it brin[C]gs is everything..[Bb]. [Am7]
[Em]comes callin[Eb]g back a brilliant n[C]ight, I'm still awak[Bb]e [Am7]
[Em]I looked ahea[Eb]d I'm sure I saw you [C]there [Bb] [Am7]
[Em]you don't need [Eb]me to tell you now, th[C]at nothing can comp[Bb]are [Am7]
[G]you might have laughed if I t[D]old you
[C]you might have hidden the f[Am]rown
[G]you might have succeeded in cha[D]nging me
[C]I might have been turned aro[Am]und
[G]It's easier to leave than to be le[D]ft behind
[C]leaving was never my[Am] proud
[G]leaving New York never[D] easy
[C]I saw the life fading [Am]out
now life is sweet and what it brings I tried to take...
the loneliness, it wears me out, it lies in way
and on our lost till in my eyes, shadow of necklace across your thigh
i might have lived my life in a dream, but i swear, this is real
Memory fuses in shatters out glass, but carry your future, forget the past
but it's you, it's what i feel.
you might have laughed if I told you (it's pulling me apart)
you might have hidden the frown (change)
you might have succeeded in changing me (it's pulling me apart)
I might have been turned around (change)
It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)
leaving was never my proud (change)
leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out
[Em] [Eb]  
[Em]you find it in your heart, it[Eb]'s pulling me apart
[Em]you find it in your heart, c[Eb]hange...
[G]i told you, forever, I love you, fo[D]rever (you find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart)
[C]i told you ,I love you, I love you, fo[Am]rever (you find it in your heart, change)
[G]i told you, forever, I love you, fore[D]ver (you find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart)
[C]i told you, I love you, I love you, fo[Am]rever (you find it in your heart, change)
you might have laughed if I told you (forever, forever,I told You, forever)
you might have hidden the frown (change)
you might have succeeded in changing me (it's pulling me apart)
I might have been turned around (change)
It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)
leaving was never my proud (change)
leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the life fading out (change)
leaving new york never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out (change)
Leaving new york never wasy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the life fading out (change)
