Am / D / Am / E

Am   D         Am    E
everything was beautiful
Am   D         Am    E
everything was right
    Am        D      Am       E
but you could not discern the source
Am      D    Am      E
of this pure delight
      Am       D       Am         E
where all your wildest dreams are tame
Am       D       Am   E
all your fiction true
    Am       D       Am      E
but you have less control of it
Am      D      Am   
than it has of you

       C     G   C      G  D
it's a place you cannot live
     C G  C       G   D
in a city with no name
        C    G    C         G  D
you can have what you bring in
       C  G   C        G   E
but it always ends the same

(verse 2, same as first)
everyone was beautiful
all the lights were bright
the one you wanted most of all
was yours without a fight
the movement was so effortless
the poetry inspired
but she was yours without a word
it's you that she desired


Am Bb C Dm Em F G E

(verse 3, same as first)
everything soon disappeared
one thing left to do
the consummation of a dream
finally coming true
her mouth, the only thing that's real
the reason you're alive
your body paralyzed with fear
a kiss before you die


That's it! Enjoy :)
