Undeveloped Film

Sorting through my things the other day 
                                  C                   G 
I found an old film camera that I thought I'd thrown away 

But there it was covered in dust 
                                       C                  G 
I checked it and the film inside still had a few pictures left 

So I just snapped it off and then 
                                              C             G 
I found a place on the high street that could still develop them 

I dropped them off and clean forgot, 
                                    C                   Em 
It wasn't until this morning that I picked the pictures up 

And there before my eyes in vivid colour 
C               G             Em     
Pictures of her stood smiling bold on the edge of a cliff by the sea 
On the south coast somewhere, 
C                 G                   C  
Wind in her hair, wrapped against the cold 

There were many other pictures in the set, 
                               C                     G 
Most of them were taken in the first months after we met 

When we were lovers like happy drunks 
                                   C                    G 
Stumbling for each other with each step, each breath in our lungs 

Pictures of nights from soho bars 
                                  C                   G 
A weekend in the country when we borrowed my sister's car, 

Her naked, serene on a hotel bed 
                           C                   Em 
Smiling at the camera, her beauty like a word unsaid 

And there before my eyes on the glossy paper 
C              G            Em 
Quiet whispers of something I had lost or put aside 
For the longest time 
    C                 G                 C  
The hope that I might find some kind of peace 

Em                    D 
Oh oh oh where did it go go go 
          Em           Ab7  
I used to know exactly where I kept it 
Em                          D 
There right there under the stairs oh please 
          Em                       Ab7  
Darling I swear swear swear that's where I left it 
Em                            D 
Secret little things that you keep locked away 
     Em                        Ab7                             Em 
In a small wooden box that you barely even mention to yourself 
                 D                                Em 
It's not exactly hope, nothing quite as simple as youth 
                           Ab7              C  
Perhaps it's just a way of looking past the truth 
We're all fading away 
    Ab7                                            Em               C 
The truth I can see in the very last frame of that long lost roll of film 
             D                                        Ab7  
A picture of me, a young man holding a camera up to a mirror 

    Em                           Am               
And there before my eyes in that old reflection 
  C           G                   Em 
A declaration bold: We won't stay gold 

All that's left of her and the rest 
     Am                  C           G             C        G 
Is a small locked box of undeveloped film and photographs
