Paradiso  The Chameleons

Song: Paradiso
Artist: The Chameleons
Album: Strip

Tuning: Standard
[G]I recall the clos[Em]ing door and I remember[C] seeing shadows cr[D]oss the
[G]stained-glass stare[C] [D] [Dsus4] [D]
[G]Long before the strangers ca[Em]me down to steal our clothing an[C]d our consciences[D]
And [G]long before, eyes were em[C]pty hearts were cold[D] [D] [F#] [D] [F#] [D]
We'll watc[F#]h the rattlesnake slide, slowly swerv[D]e into v[F#]iew, to[D]
[F#]Tease and tantalize, to suc[D]k your sens[F#]es and spit out the pieces[D]
[F#]Magazine girl, she is liv[D]ing in a different world, o[F#]r is it a he?[D]
Pull [F#]back the curtain my son, I look aroun[D]d-- t[F#]he color has gone[D]
[G]And slowly darkness [Am]descends upon me. Para[Em]diso, I know you lie--[G] [Am]
[Em]that much is clear (to me).[F#] [D] [F#] [D]
While the serpent [F#]sings his song to so many sle[D]eping staring eyes[D]
Like sheep [F#]they sing along and clap i[D]n time to a heart[F#] that's beating[D]
[F#]Crazy child, she is [D]wicked oh she is wild and so[F#] enticing[D]
Pull bac[F#]k the curtain today, I loo[D]k around me [F#]and the color is gray[D]
[G]Gray as this ghost tow[Am]n that towers above me. P[Em]aradiso, I know y[G]ou lie--[Am]
[Em]That much is clear (to me)
[F] [G] [Em]  
[F] [G] [Am] [G]  
[F] [G] [Em]  
I see the poet and[F] the fool walking hand in hand to school
[G] And I recall the lonely outc[Em]ast and I remember laughing[C] children[D]
It was lon[G]g before their eyes were emp[C]ty, hearts w[D]ere cold[F#] [D]
[F#] [D] [F#] [D]  
So dan[F#]ce this final dance with [D]me and wrap your sting around my spine[D]
Will [F#]poison wash away the tears[D], wipe the world from my mi[F#]nd[D]
[F#]Look up--- what can[D] you do? I looked around the c[F#]olor was blue[D]
[F#]Wise up, it's [D]in your head, I looked around [F#]me and the color was red[D]
[G]Red as the words that[Am] I read on the wal[Em]l, paradiso-- kingdoms ris[G]e,[Am]
[Em]So must they fall
[G]And only ashes re[Am]main in the end, pa[Em]radiso-- I know you lie, lies w[Am]ithout end[Em]
I'll see it again [G]and again and agai[Am]n, I'll se[Em]e it again and again and aga[G]in[Am] [Em]
[Em] [C] Paradiso,[Em] [C] paradiso[Em] [C] [Em]
