Intro: Em, G, D, Am         Em

Verse: 
                G                          D
In the city, she wakes, before the break of day, 
                 Am                   Em
Cold water on her face, so lonely
                     G                            D
Between the glass and knife, she'd like to start a fire, 
                    Am                         C
She'd burn the city down, she'd burn it all for love


Chorus:
                G                      D
Can you see the people, staring at the steeples
                      Am         C
Wondering why they're so lonely, so lonely?
                   G                    D
Can you hear their voices, joining in a chorus,
                   Am         C
Wondering why it's so lovely, so lovely?


Em, G, D, Am          Em

Verse:
                 G                           D
In the city, she wakes, the smoke is cleared away, 
                 Am                          Em
The fire's just a flame, still breathing,
               G              D
She made a big debut on Fifth Avenue, 
                       Am                            C
Then the village voice review took the fire from her eyes


Chorus:
               G                      D
Can you see the people, staring at the steeples
                      Am         C
Wondering why they're so lonely, so lonely?
                   G                    D
Can you hear their voices, joining in a chorus,
                   Am         C
Wondering why it's so lovely, so lovely?


Em, G, D, Am          Em

Verse:    
                   G                          D
We're walking right beside the ones we used to fight, 
                  Am                         Em   
The flag is waving white, the flag is waving white,
                    G                       D
We see for the first time, when we stop the fight,
                  Am                        C
The flag is waving white, the flag is waving white


Chorus:	
               G                      D
Can you see the people, staring at the steeples
                      Am         C
Wondering why they're so lonely, so lonely?
                   G                    D
Can you hear their voices, joining in a chorus,
                   Am         C
Wondering why it's so lovely, so lovely?


G, D, Am, C
