Verse 1
=======

       Am                             Am/F#
It's a cold and lonely message at the end of a song
      G                               Em
It in-vaded hearts and minds but they couldn't get along
       Am                         Am/F#
It can ask you to remember it can ask you for a dance
      G                         Em
So it seems that every song now is just one last chance

Oh re-demption love and departure I think your work is done
G                          Em
Paris St. Petersburg don't need a tower of song
   Am                              Am/F#
Es-cape's not worth the capture so walk that lonesome road
   G                      Em
No joy or earthly rapture nothing to take the load


Gsus4   G  Gsus4  G
