NOTES:
Another gorgeous song with a lilting jazz feel...
Although the song has easy chords, the key to the sound is Lianne's finger-
picking, which you just have to practise, I'm afraid.
It's not enough to know the chords; the song has to sway...


VERSE:
Notes:
Lianne picks the open Em9/Em7 chords more or less as in the guitar figure. 
An alternative is to find a strumming pattern for the open Em9 - Em7.
Play around with these chords and try to find a pattern that works for you.

On the Gm7 chord she frets on and off the 2nd string at the 5th fret. Chords: Em9 075770 Em7 075900 Gm7 353333 A7 575655
Em9-Em7Sometimes when you talk, mm-hmm,
Gm7And I'm your Betty Boo, and we're singing it close
Like the girls in Belleville rendez-vous
Em9-Em7I wish that we could somehow freeze the frame
Gm7But this isn't the silver-screen, oh no,
A7 Gm7 A7There's no pause, no re-wind
CHORUS: Notes: The chords follow the same picking pattern as for the the VERSEs. Chords: Em9 075770 Em7 075900 Gm7 353333 A7 575655
Em9-Em7Time to find out where the story goes,
Sadly too hip with the curtains closed,
Gm7Watching ourselves au cinéma
Em9-Em7Taking our positions as the cameras roll,
You'll be the guy, I'll be the girl,
Gm7 A7Watching ourselves au cinéma, cinéma-ah
VERSE: Chords: Em9 075770 Em7 075900 Gm7 353333 A7 575655
Em9-Em7Now we cut to the girl, alone
She's found on the Brooklyn Bridge
Gm7And she's truly at home,
Oh, her step has a whole new spring
Em9Big bright lights of the city are shining for her
There's a thirst in her eyes, and her heart,
Gm7'Though she thinks to look back, back, she won't...
A7 Gm7 A7 Gm7 A7 Gm7 A7There's no pause, no re-wind; no pause, no re-wind
CHORUS: Chords: Em9 075770 Em7 075900 Gm7 353333 A7 575655
Em9-Em7Time to find out where the story goes,
Sadly too hip with the curtains closed,
Gm7Watching ourselves au cinéma
Em9-Em7Taking our positions as the cameras roll,
You'll be the guy, I'll be the girl,
Gm7 A7 Gm7 A7Watching ourselves au cinéma, cinéma-ah
[repeat CHORUS: this time play Em9 on "cinéma-ah"] CODA: Notes: Finger-pick as for VERSE/CHORUS.
Em9-Em7 ...Where the story goes...
Gm7...With the curtains closed...
Em9-Em7Watching ourselves au cinéma...
Em9-Em7Taking our positions as the cameras roll,
You'll be the guy, I'll be the girl,
Gm7 Watching ourselves au cinéma, cinéma-ah
[end on Gm7]
