CAPO 7

C F G AmYou propel yourself into the arms of God, and Christ and all the angels now,
D G EYou're high above the people who, you used to call your equals
C F GI will stay behind and live this life, you left me as a witness,
Am D G Who can tidy up yor business, and record that someone lived here,
C F GIn the shade of Trelick Tower, in those days of living gently,
Am D G E Something holy used to love me, something holy used to touch me,
F Em Dm G C C2Then he heard the voice I couldn't hear, he's gone to where it sent him,
Am D D7 GAnd now I'm praying for this pain to clear, he's waiting on ascension.
Am Dm GAnd now I'm praying but there's still no change, you're high as Trellick Tower,
Am D7 G G/Am Throw your head and when you let me spend my life trying to climb you,
Am C6 Dm Dsus4 AmAnd praying 'til my knees don't fold, praying 'til my hands don't close,
D GPraying 'til my fingers glow.
C F G And you've propelled yourself into the arms of God, and Christ and all the saints,
Am D G ENow I've been walking through our house like separation made it sacred,
F Em Dm G CI've been buried in the books you left, I treat them like they're ancient,
C2 Am D D7 G And I think relics ache for when the saint had breath, they miss the thing that changed them.
Am Dm GAnd I'm a relic and you're so, so high, you're high as Trellick Tower,
Am D7 GThrow your head and when you let me spend my life trying to climb you,
Am C6 Dm Dsus4 AmAnd praying 'til my knees don't fold, praying 'til my hands don't close,
D GPraying 'til my fingers glow.
F Bb CAnd in the shade of Trellick Tower, I spent a while trying to keep you,
Dm G C A7 BbTell all the people moving on, hey, hey something holy used to live here now,
Am Gm C FI'm a relic of a love gone by, kneeling to address the sky,
Dm Bb C FAnd I'll keep praying 'til the binds untie, praying but I don't know why,
Dm G G7 CAnd I'll keep praying 'til the binds untie, praying but I don't know why,
Dm G G7 COh, I'll pray until the language dies, praying 'cos you're so, so high,
C2 FCan I spend my life trying to climb you?
