Under the ruins of a walled city Crumbling towers in beams of yellow light No flags of truce, no cries of pity The siege guns have been pounding all through the night

As I returned across the fields I'd known I recognized the walls that I once made I had to stop in my tracks for fear B7 B7sus B7 B7sus Of walking on the mines I'd laid Chorus: Em D G C D C D And if I built this fortress around your heart Em D G C D C D Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire Em D G C D C D Then let me build a bridge, for I cannot fill the chasm Eb F Eb F G And let me set the battlements on fire Intro riff 2 times Verse: Play riff #1 on these two lines Then I went off to fight some battle That I'd invented inside my head Play riff #2 on these two lines Away so long for years and years You probably thought or even wished that I was dead Play riff #3 for these three lines While the armies all are sleeping Beneath the tattered flag we made I had to stop in my tracks for fear B7 B7sus B7 B7sus Of walking on the mines I'd laid Repeat Chorus Verse: Play riff #1 on these two lines This prison has now become your home A sentence you seem prepared to pay Play riff #2 on these two lines It took a day to build the city We walked through it's streets this afternoon Play riff #3 on these three lines As I returned across the lands I'd known I recognized the fields where I'd once played I had to stop in my tracks fear B7 B7sus B7 B7sus Of walking on the mines I'd laid Repeat Chorus Go back to intro riff.
