Through The Barricades  Spandau Ballet


[G]Mother doesn't [Em]know where love is [Bm7]gone,[C] she say's it [Em]must be
youth that [F]keeps the feeling [C]strong.[G] I see it in her [Em]face
that's turn [Bm7]to ice,[C] and when she [Em]smiles she shows the [F]lines
of sacr[D]ifice.
And now I [C]know what they [D]sayin' as our [G]sun [G-1]begins [Em]to fade.
And we [C]made our love on [Am]waste [C]land and [D]through the barri[G]cades
[G]Father [Em]made my hist[Bm7]ory,[C] he fought for [Em]what he thought [F]would set
us somehow [C]free.[G] He taught me [Em]what to say in [Bm7]school,[C] I learned
it [Em]off by heart but [F]now that's torn in [D]two.
And now I [C]know what they [D]sayin' in the [G]music [G-1]of the [Em]parade.
And we [C]made our love on [Am]waste [C]land and [D]through the barri[G]cades.
[G]Born on [Em]different sides of [Bm7]life[C], we [Em]fear the same and [F]feel
all of this [C]strife.[G] So come to [Em]me when I'm a[Bm7]sleep[C], we'll [Em]cross
the lines and [F]dance upon the [D]streets.
And now I [C]know what they [D]sayin' as the [G]drums begins to [Em]fade.
And we [C]made our love on [Am]waste [C]land and [D]through the barri[G]cades.
[F]Oh turn [C]around and I'll [G]be there. There's a [F]scar right
through my [C]heart but Iíll bear it [G]again. Oh I [F]thought we were
the human [C]race but we were [G]just another [D]borderline [Em]case. And
the [C]stars reach down and tell us thereís always one [D]escape.
[G]Oh I don't [Em]know when love was [Bm7]gone.[C] But in this [Em]troubled land
despe[C]ration keeps us [D]strong.[G] As Fridayís [Em]child is [Bm7]through the soul.
[C]with nothing [Em]left to loose there's [C]everything to [D]go.
And now I [C]know what they [D]sayin' it's a [G]terrible [D]beauty we've
[Em]made. So we [C]made our love on [Am]waste [C]land and [D]through the barri[G]cades.
And now I [C]know what they [D]sayin' as our [G]hearts go to their
[Em]graves. And we [C]made our love on [Am]waste [C]land and [D]through the
