On The Wire

1. Over You

intro:    A, A/G#, F#mi,

 

 

                       Hmi

It was a cold night

                           F#mi 
January light by a silver moon

             Hmi
And the band played

                               F#mi
another serenade to lovers tune

              Hmi
But your crying eyes never could disguise

                F#mi
What was on your mind

       Hmi
And through it all I never would have called

            E
You the hurting kind

 

 

(Chorus):

               D                       E

Then you closed your eyes said goodbye

       A              A/G#     F#mi
And turned and walked away

                                 Hmi              E

Baby don't you know it's true

E                      A            A/G#     F#mi
There's nothing more that I can do

                    Hmi                        E
Even though I know we've through

                     A   A/G#    F#mi
I just can't get over you

 

intro:    A, A/G#, F#mi,

 

Like the last time you said that you were
Mine and you'll never go
Those were good days thought you'll figured
Out a way I would never know
I was crazy to let myself believe I was the only one
I was so blind should have seen the sign of all the
Things to come

 

(Chorus)

 

 

(Chorus 2)

 A              D                  E                   A        

I can't get over you and leave it all behind me

          Hmi                  C#mi         D

Every face I see every place I go reminds me

 

Now I realise you told me lies I'm looking for
Reasons I just don't know why
Should 've known better should've been strong
God knows I've got to find the strength to carry on

So just close your eyes and say goddbye
Turn and walk away

 

(Chorus)

 

 

 

2. Aint Gonna Rain

 

 

E                     H

Girl I'd better tell you now

F#mi        A
I'd better warn you
I'm not like any other guy
Who came off the street corner
Cos I got a heritage
Yeah, I got history
And I got Indian blood
Deep inside of me

 

(Chorus):

E         H            F#mi        A
No it ain't gonna rain no more
No it ain't gonna rain no more

 

Girl you'd better hold on tight
If you want the ride of your life
You'd better watch me
Cos I'M gonna watch you
Accross the big white plain
To a new horizon
Taking the wise words of old
Joe Cherokee

 

(Chorus)

E         H            F#mi        A
No it ain't gonna rain no more
No it ain't gonna rain no more

 

A

Girl I'm in a wonder

            E
Wonder world

A                             H
And I'd give you my world
If I could

 

Now girl you better listen to me
Cos my heart's no longer free
I can see it in the cloud
I can feel it in the wind

 

(Chorus)

E         H            F#mi        A
No it ain't gonna rain no more
No it ain't gonna rain no more

 

 

 

3. Love On A Wire

 

               D          
Can you feel my heartbeat

Beating like a drum
Trying to touch your cold heart
Beating up the right song

                         A
Moving with the back beat
Hanging 'round your door

                      D
Play your little love game
But baby I want more

 

(Chorus):

D              G                    D
Love on a wire lifting me up

D              G                    D
Love on a wire don't look down

D              E     G
Love on a wire trying to keep your

A                 D
Feet off the ground

 

It's not so easy
Walking on a tightrope
With no safety net
Living on high hope
Waitin' on your call
Headin' for a fall
You got me hangin' on
Baby don't get me wrong

 

         Emi                       G

Cos every once in a while I feel

       Emi                      A
Your love can take me higher

Emi                  G                 A
Every once in a while I see desire

Cos every once in a while I feel
Your cold heart getting warmer
And every once in a while I feel
Your fire

C                         Ami

Or was it the wind that took it away
And I still feel your every move
I die and cry with every thought of you

Fmaj7                                G

When I look there's no one there
Do you know how much I really care

 

(Chorus)

We'll never be the lonely ones
And I'll build a better world for you

       C
And me

 

Somedays I can't make it through
Somedays I never really wanted to
And I'm still searching but it's been
So long
I'm pretending that there's nothing wrong
In my heart you know you'll always be
The only love that lives inside of me

Need you so

Clean my shirt and shine my shoes

Shave the stubble off my chin
Take a close of discipline
and join the human race again

Back to the heart of Paleo

 

 

Learn to see your shooting stars
And feel the evening breeze
Walk along the rocky path
Among your olive trees
And though you're just one tiny jewel
In the Ionian sea
There's no place else I'd rather be

So I'll keep working hard and

G          G/F#    Emi
Waiting for the day

C                  Ami                 D
When I'll be coming back to stay

This chill in the air here
Makes me miss you even more
Wish I was standing on your shore
Wish I was standing on your shore

No more run and hide away

Till you see the shining light

To give it you - and that's now way

Tumbling through the darkness
Longing for the day

10. A Million Conversations

intro:  G C/G; 4x

 

 

G
We can try to understand

      Emi
It's something we should know

   C
A mother's dream is broken

                G
And she's got nowhere to go
Do we know just what we're doing
We're living in the past
The hopes and dreams we're hiding
Seem to hold on to the last

    D                              C                 G

A million conversations never said a word

Countless delegations saying things that won't be heard

The children of the future

Gotta have a chance

Ami
There's gotta be a better way

C
There's gotta be a better way

 

intro:  G C/G; 4x

 

You'll fight a war for fame
No-one takes the blame
She sells her soul for water
As they faced another plane
We don't know what we're doing
The innocent won't last
Praying that their conscience makes
Them reconize the past

A million conversations never said a word
Countless delegations saying things that
Won't be heard

(Chorus)

 

 

 

11. African Nights

 

A                                G        D
Over a land where the water flows

An eagle flies where the west wind blows
I saw her eyes shining crystal clear

G            D        A
One in a million years

             F#mi                            D
And our hearts were one under burning suns

          Hmi    Dbmi              D        
to the city of gold we will run

 

(Chorus)

 

A                              E         A
I still remember the African nights

A                 D            G                E
Deep in my memory it burns me inside

A
I've thrown down my chains and

       E            A

I'm ready to fight

A                D             F#mi
Can we recapture the fire at the

           E         A
at the African nights

 

 

From where I stand I can feel her touch
I'm in her hands and it means so much
I undersand when the vision is gone
This feeling inside carries on
If the heart and mind reach a borderline
Who could consider it a crime

 

(Chorus)

 

A                    D

Tar nem seng yaaro

      Hmi            E/A - E 
We hear you we follow

12. Broken Hearts

 

 

A                                       F#mi
I'm just nother guy on an empty road

D
Waiting patiently for someone

E
I don't know
I'm just another face in a
Crowded room
Got that feeling that they're
Watching me
But they look straight through

 

(Chorus):

 

E    A A         A/Ab           F#mi
Broken hearts don't ever lie

            D

Broken hearts don't ever lie

             A

You can push and shove

              A/Ab
'Til you've had enough

              D
'Til the tears all run dry

             A      A/Ab            G
Broken hearts don't ever lie

      Hmi 
No matter what the future holds

         D
They say that broken hearts

                 A
Don't ever lie

 

 

It's just another day in a
Lonely year
A million miles from somewhere
A million miles from here
It's just another place in a
Different time
Alone here with the memory
Of a past I left behind

 

(Chorus)

 

I'm just another guy
On an empty road
A million miles from somewhere
Get a million miles to go

 

(Chorus)

Home is anywhere you are

 

 

Well my mam and papa raised me
Made me what I am
Then you stepped out of my dreams
And you made me a man
Your sweet gift of love
A wonder to behold
When it's time to come in from the cold
I know

 

(Chorus)

 

       C                   D  

And I believe that I

               Hmi                 C
Know the meaning of my life

Every time that I look in your eyes


I know
