Traintime

	  C#sus4          C#m 
Along the track the wires are humming 
C#sus4            C#m 
In bursts of code like far-off drums 
D   C#sus4   D   C#sus4 
Fathering a message Further up the line 
 D    C#sus4 
Someone's shouting down the passage of time 

C#sus4         C#m 
The corridor restrains the window 
C#sus4        C# 
No view without the eye (I?) within 
D   C#sus4      D    C#sus4 
Bold upon the threshold But holding on the line 
D      C#sus4 
Shouting down the passage of time 

Bb     A  C#     B 
Relatives speak on the phone on the train 
Ab    Ab     B   Bbsus4 
Talking before they have thought to explain 
Bb      A  C#m          B 
Voices pitched wildly on tracks in the night 
Ab       Ab  B     Bbsus4 
Can't pick the pace up, oh let there be light 
 Ab F#    E 
How light becomes the soul 

C#sus4       C#m 
You know yourself the centre of attention 
C#sus4       C#m 
You know yourself the locus of event 
D       C#sus4        D   C#sus4 
Sorry if it's painful Quarrying the lime, stage centre 
D      C#sus4 
Shouting down the passage of time 

C#sus4         C# 
The corridor retains its shadows 

its secrets compartmentalised 

damping down on ambience 

damp the teeth and grind 

shouting down the passage of time! 

Bb      A    C#m     B 
What's there to see or make clear 
Ab     Ab    B   Bbsus4 
What's there to know when the voice is right here 
Bb      A    C#m    B 
What's there to promise or vow 
Ab    Ab     B   Bbsus4 
What's to believe when the time is right now 

Bb     A  C#m      B 
Relatives speak on the phone on the train 
Ab    Ab     B   Bbsus4 
Talking before they have thought to refrain 
Bb    A   C#      B 
Voices projecting, spears in mid-flight 
Ab    Ab      B         Bbsus4 
Frozen forever, oh let there be light!!
