Intro C
[C]On the museum island,
At the e[G]nd of the day,
we had [C]travelled for miles,
We had [G]come to escape
All[F] the space on the page
That the [C]newspapers [Am]gave
Up to [G]pictures and [F]pictures of u[C]s.
[C]As we followed the coffin
Of y[G]our famous father.
[C]Adjusting our skirts
As w[G]e turned at the altar.
And [F]within every word
That they'd[C] written, was spe[Am]lt out
You'd [G]taken your [F]last ever bus.[C]
[C]So skimming the surface
Of all [G]your new money,
we[C] skimmed the surface
Of the[G] air as we flew.
we [F]were out of the rain,
we were [C]thinking that [Am]maybe
B[G]erlin was the [F]place to renew.[C]
well[F] you know what they say
About t[C]errible hate -
It will [Am]breed something good
When it's [C]through.
At the[F] end of the day,
By the[C] Potsdamer [Am]Place
And the[G] Brandenburg [F]Gate,
It was y[C]ou.
hold C for interlude
[C]You have hardened completely
By the [G]end of this story,
You have[C] learned to look clear
Through the[G] flash of a bulb,
When you [C]hear your own name
From the[G] back of a crowd,
You just [C]straighten your gaze,
No you [G]don't turn around.
Oh but [F]there was a time
At the [C]end of the day,
We were [Am]both stood in line
At the [C]museum display,
And you[F] outshone the light
Under [C]which you were bathed,
You could [Am]outshine the sky
With the [C]look that you gave,
Oh so [F]don't be afraid
To look [C]back and wave,
Now that [Am]waving is all that you [C]do.
At the [F]end of the day,
By the [C]Potsdamer P[Am]lace,
I am [G]waving b[F]ack at y[C]ou.
hold C for interlude
So [F]don't be afraid
To look[C] back and wave,
Now that [Am]waving is all that you [C]do.
At the [F]end of the day,
By the [C]Potsdamer [Am]Place,
I am[G] waving [F]back at [C]you.
