D2 How do we now view ourselves, G G/F# E- sitting victims in a shelter needing help? D2 How do we now regain control G G/F# E- A over the remnants of our life without a home? F#- G If a bomb had hit us, nothing less would remain E- A A7 not a wall to lean on; not a fork or a plate F#- G but at least we made it out and we're still alive E- A A7 and we're starting over now in the middle of the night *Sitar* D2

As always, fell free to make this tab better. This is one of the most "indian" song in "Here"...as the title track, almost impossible to re-write. I love the vocal line, and the way Adrian sings. Simply amazing. Thank you Ade. _Ozzy geomscortichini@interfree.it
