Em7 Is he teasing you with underage? Bm Could he be waving from a tropical sunset? D Static silhouette somehow Em7 Single in this bed someday === CHORUS: Bm D Quiet till it falls, falls, falls; Rome, Rome, Rome, Rome A Focus looking forward, the Colosseum Bm7 Oh no, what did I say? What can I say? G6 C#m7b5 Rome, Rome, many tears are falling here D I'll be driving; you'll look the other way === VERSE TWO: D That ain't easy to ignore Em7 With your shutters open all the way Bm D When it's candlelight I see I go insane Distant silhouette somehow Em7 We shared a cigarette somewhere === CHORUS TWO: Bm Gadd9 Addict till it falls, falls, falls; Rome, Rome, Rome, Rome A Focus looking forward, the Colosseum Bm7 Oh no, what did I say?

The keyboard could be replaced by another guitar playing the following chords: | Gadd9 | "" | Em7 | "" | C#m7b5 | "" | Bm7 | A | (x2) All together, these are the chords created: | Gadd9 | "" | Em7 | "" | C#m7(b5,b9) | "" | Bm7 Aadd11 | (x2) --- === BRIDGE: Gadd9 Em7 C#m7(b5,b9) Bm7 A I stand outside under broken leaves Gadd9 Em7 C#m7(b5,b9) Bm7 Aadd11 I know I can't do without; the future's trying to wait Gadd9 Em7 I never loved you; and if I loved you C#m7(b5,b9) Bm7 Aadd11 I wouldn't say I'm sorry, oh no Gadd9 Em7 Bm/F# F#/A# I stand outside under broken leaves === VERSE FOUR: Gadd9 A9 Always and forever more; We're together dead and lonely Bm7 Gadd9 I thought I couldn't do this without you A9 Single in this bed somewhere Ashes till it fall, fall, falls === OUTRO: | D | Em7 | Bm7 | End on D.
