G Em Grace Cathedral hill, all wrapped in the C bones of a setting sun, all dust and stone D and moribund. I paid twenty-five cents to D7 G light a little white candle for a New Year's Em Day. I sat and watched it burn away then C turned and weaved through the slow decay. D D7 We were both a little hungry so we went G Em to get a hotdog. Down the Hyde St. Pier, the light was slight and C D dissapeared. The air, it sunk of fish and beer. We heard D7 a superman trumpet play the National Anthem. CHORUS C G Em C And the world may belong for you, but he'll G Em C Cm never belong to you. But on a motorbike, when D D7 all the city lights blind your eyes tonight, are you C D G Em feeling better now? .......Are you feeling be...ttttter..nooooww. C Cm Are you feeling better now? VERSE 2 Some way to greet the year: your eyes all bright and brimmed with tears. The pilgrims, pills and tourist here all sing "Fifty three bucks to buy a brand new halo." I'm sweet on a green-eyed girl, all fiery Irish clip and curl, all brine and piss and vinegar. I paid twenty-five vents to light a little white candle. CHORUS And the world maybe be long for you, but he'll never belong to you. But on a motorbike, when all the city lights blind your eyes, are you feeling better now? CODA G-Em-C-Cm
