Intro C

C
On the museum island,
        G
At the end of the day,
       C
we had travelled for miles,
       G
We had come to escape
   F
All the space on the page
         C          Am
That the newspapers gave
      G            F            C
Up to pictures and pictures of us.
C
As we followed the coffin
    G
Of your famous father.
C
Adjusting our skirts
    G
As we turned at the altar.
    F
And within every word
           C                Am
That they'd written, was spelt out
      G          F             C
You'd taken your last ever bus.


C
So skimming the surface
       G
Of all your new money,
  C
we skimmed the surface
      G
Of the air as we flew.
   F
we were out of the rain,
        C             Am
we were thinking that maybe
 G             F              C
Berlin was the place to renew.

    F
well you know what they say
       C
About terrible hate -
        Am
It will breed something good
          C
When it's through.
      F
At the end of the day,
      C          Am
By the Potsdamer Place
       G            F  
And the Brandenburg Gate,
        C
It was you.

hold C for interlude

C
You have hardened completely
       G
By the end of this story,
        C
You have learned to look clear
           G
Through the flash of a bulb,
         C
When you hear your own name
        G
From the back of a crowd,
         C
You just straighten your gaze,
       G
No you don't turn around.
       F
Oh but there was a time
       C
At the end of the day,
        Am
We were both stood in line
       C
At the museum display,
       F
And you outshone the light
      C
Under which you were bathed,
          Am
You could outshine the sky
         C
With the look that you gave,
      F
Oh so don't be afraid
        C
To look back and wave,
         Am                     C
Now that waving is all that you do.
       F
At the end of the day,
       C          Am
By the Potsdamer Place,
     G       F       C
I am waving back at you.

hold C for interlude

   F
So don't be afraid
       C
To look back and wave,
         Am                     C
Now that waving is all that you do.
       F
At the end of the day,
       C         Am
By the Potsdamer Place,
    G       F       C
I am waving back at you.
