King Charles – Ivory Road chords

                                IVORY ROAD - KING CHARLES 

GYou're the nose on my bullet
The trigger on my gun
BYou're the sandbank in the ocean
Oxygen in my blood
CYou're the fastest of the fish
You're the prickliest pear
GYou're a chameleon in the night
You're the sahara's sun glare
GYou're my mind's rest
You're the strings on my guitar
AmYou're the wax in my moustache
The keys to my car
DYou're the magical mermaid's hollowed illusion
You cool them, fool them And they hope so much
GAnd you let them down
And you watch from your rock And your heart beats fast as you watch their's stop
GI will keep on loving
'Cos I believe in love
AmI don't mind dying
If you follow me up
GYour victory's your defeat
Your head above your heart
Am Only the brave surrender
DDeath cannot tear us apart
Interlude: G Am D G
GWell my smile is wider
Than your's when we meet
BAnd the winter is colder
For me underneath
CAnd I know that you glow
From the inside out
GYou can keep it for yourself
And I'll go without
GYou are the fire and I'm the chimney
You'll burn away and I'll choke on your memory
AmAll the words, my sense, you're the poet to my pen
You're the dream that brings the morning sadness
D GStart the day storm in my head
GWell you're the Oscar Wilde short stories in my bookcase
AmYou're positively 4th street isolated in my itunes
DYou're the word in the dictionary that I can't spell
GCan't describe, can't put in a sentence but use all the time
GYour own pair of trousers look better on me
AmThe boots of spanish leather
And the bottom of the sea
DEvery symbol of love that doesn't relate to a meaning
GEvery feeling, every sensation
Only real when I'm dreaming
GI will keep on loving
'Cos I believe in love
AmI don't mind dying
If you follow me up
GYour victory's your defeat
Your head above your heart
AmOnly the brave surrender
D GDeath cannot tear us apart
GWell I wish we were animals free of loves games
AmI wish we were snails with really big shells
DI wish I was a lion, I'd be king of the wild
GI'd command all the beasts to carry you when you're tired
GI'm the elephant in the circus
Oh, you're my trainer
AmYou'd never let me go
But if you did I would stay here
DIn love there is freedom
But it must be returned
GThere must be sacrifice
Love must be learnt
GA donkey, a mule, a lifetime of work
AmIn death he rests his head from his reins
No burden to bare but work left him lame
DAnd the lion on the mountain chased from his pride
His lioness stolen, his rival survives G (let ring...) The sound of his cubs in death are dim He knows his world well, no pain can defeat him
G AmWild horses in the wilderness
D GWill know no journey home
AmWell my love is locked in chains
D GThe lion walks alone
AmOh the lion walks alone
DNature is cruel
GBut he knows it's his home
GHe to his demons
AmAnd you to your own
DPlease let me stand by you
GAnd we'll conquer them all
G AmWe will conquer them all
D GOh I will conquer them all (x3)
