Verse:
Cm                Cm(add b5)        Cm               Cm (add b5)
On the day the wall came down, they threw the locks on to the ground
Fm/Ab                                     Gsus4              G
And with glasses high we raised a cry for freedom had arrived

Cm                 Cm(add b5)
And on the day the wall came down
Cm                    Cm(add b5)
The ship of fools had finally run aground
Fm/Ab           Gsus4            G
Promises lit up the night like paper doves in flight


Chorus:
     F        G/F      F                       G/F  F        F/C  C
I dreamed you had left my side. No warmth not even pride remained--
     F/C           F           G/F    F                        G/F     F
              And even though you needed me, it was clear that I could not
      F/C  C         C   G/C   G/B
do a thing for you


Verse:
Cm               Cm(add b5)
Now life devalues day by day
Cm               Cm(add b5)
As friends and neighbours turn away
Fm/Ab                          Gsus4                    G
And there's a change that even with regret can not be undone

Cm                     Cm(add b5)
Now frontiers shift like desert sands,
Cm                      Cm(add b5)
while nations wash their bloodied hands

Fm/Ab                   Gsus4            G
Of loyalty, of history, in shades of grey


Chorus:
     F        G/F      F
I woke to the sound of drums
   G/F           F        F/C          C
The music played, the morning sun streamed in
F/C     F           G/F    F
I turned and I looked at you,
 G/F                F              F/C    C
and all but the bitter residue slipped away,
C   G/C   G/B
slipped away
