Then switch to strumming the following chords: E A Asus4 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 These chords are repeated as above all the way to the bridge. Verse and Chorus: E A Asus4 Like summer's death throes London's arms around me The world ends in West End sirens screaming unseen The river frozen and the lions asleep Up on the Westway watching people as sheep Play the chords once in between the verse and chorus E A Asus4 It's a long way away from it all In my corner I sometimes feel nothing at all It's the best way when the snow starts to fall Play the chords twice between the chorus and verse E A Asus4 Confetti falling down the drains of your dreams Life in the fast lane never quite what it seems You're full-on baby with your full-on beams Play the chords once again before the next chorus E A Asus4 On an expressway through the heart of it all In my corner I can walk cannot crawl It's the best way when the snow starts to fall Play the chords once more before the bridge Bridge: You can play around with the strumming on this section.

Repeat a few times, then sing over the same chords: Like summer's death throes London armed surrounds me I'm up EC1 rusted fountains drown me This frozen river and these lions that breathe On an expressway Is this the best way On the last time through, play a G major bar chord instead of the last B2 chord. Outro: This is exactly the same as the verse, but a half step up, so you use bar chords on the first fret.
