Ed Harcourt - The Music Box chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Eb            D                       Eb
The music box is all that's left in the empty house
D                   Cm
Must've left it when they moved out
B+            Eb/Bb               Ab           Fm/C
In a hurry to flee the town
Eb            D                        Eb
Armoured tanks broke through all of the soldier's ranks
D                          Cm
You can be sure they weren't shooting blanks
B+                  Eb/Bb                Ab           Fm/C
From bodies laid out on the ground


Fm                  Cm
There's a song your father had sung
Fm                     Cm
When you were just knee high
Fm            Bb
Now a soldier plays the same tune
         Eb      D     Cm
From the toy you left behind
D/Bb        Eb/Bb
Something to remind you
D/Bb        Eb/Bb
Something to remind you


Burnt to black there's a face you don't recognize
Just a doll with hollow eyes
And a feeling you can't describe
In factories, toys are made by the companies
Who create our killing machines
So the planet can rest at ease

There's a story you had to hear
When you couldn't sleep at all
Now the pages are burning
In some sad unholy war

Something to remind you
Something to remind you
/Bb            /C
Something to remind you
/D                 /Eb
The ones you left behind you

Something to remind you
Something to remind you
Something to remind you
The ones you left behind you

The music box plays a song that I used to love
But now I can't remember what it was
For my memory has faded


*Note the ascending bass line at the end of the second chorus the leads into a 
 The last quiet verse uses the same chords as the first verse but fades out on a couple alternate 
chords that I can't seem to make out.  Any suggestions?
