The City

verse 1 
E                A 
  The city was too late for us 
B                  A 
  I got there and you wanted to get away 
E                A 
  The city was too grey for us 
B                        A                              E 
  We slept through the blue skies under clouds and the duvet 
And the streets are all too straight for us 
B                A               E 
  A parade of nobility seen from above 
The city is to blame for us 
B            A      C#m  G#m  F#m  F#m 
  And what was our love... 
        C#m  G#m  F#m  F#m 
What was... 

verse 2 
E                    A 
  The city makes you make a fuss 
B                    A 
  There's places to meet up under the light 
E                   A 
  The city's got its stake in us 
B                 A                        E 
  It's keeping receipts of our hello's and our hi's 
And everything is made of dust 
B                        A                      E 
  From the backs of the comets to the little street mice 
The city takes so long to get quiet 
   B       A 
And lust... wasn't sleeping that night 

C#m  G#m     F#m        F#m          C#m  G#m  F#m  F#m 
  Before we knew it, we knew it was right 
C#m  G#m     F#m             F#m         C#m G#m  F#m  F#m 
  Before we blew it I didn't know that we might 
C#m            G#m          F#m 
  And now it's somebody's story 
    F#m      C#m   G#m       F#m  F#m 
And I'm not sorry that it's mine 
C#m  G#m    F#m     F#m     A 
  Before we knew it we were out of time 

verse 3 
E                         A 
  And the city says, "Oh, if I could..." 
B                      A                          E 
  But the rain-soaked battered view makes you not sure 
Am I walking in your neighbourhood? 
B                            A                           E 
  I was just driving by the rained-out streets where we once were 
And even though it's way too late 
B                A 
  Time seems to have stopped still where we stood 
E                            A 
  You ran back in and you're somewhere in the city 
        B                        A                   E 
You're somewhere in the city and I hope you're good
