Richard Wright Reaching For The Rail tab
Am Em Am Em C Em/B C E Am Em I'm ill with a fever, I feel like a child Am Em I lay in the dark 'til morning came. C It's so unoriginal Em/B And I feel it worse at night C I know it's not terminal E But I'm near half-dead fright Am And freezing cold. Am But sooner than woke up Em To find it all unchanged Am Em I'll sleep through the day til the daylight ends. C Cos it's all so familiar Em/B As it comes around again C The same taste to everything E The same unbroken chain Am That still remains. F G Em/G Em F G Em F G With morning I rise, F Em A dream that won't leave me, F G You're sad, naked and pale Am And you're reaching for the rail Em You took a look inside, how could you peel away Am Em Or break the shell, the hurt you've hidden so well For all your days. C And you're going down Em/B As you slip beneath the waves, C Won't make a sound E Am Won't even leave a trace before you. D/A C/G Bb/F Am/E Dm7 Em7 F G Am Em I hear an appalling sigh from the streets below Am And it's creeping fear congealed in stone Em That paves the crazy road. C Em/B And all are succumbing and they look so hopelessly C At the heartbreak, it's easy to deal with, E Am Just take these and you'll really never feel it. Bm G Bm G A G A D Bmsus4 ...
