F#m                     C#m
Tomorrow you’ll see it through
A                         Bm             Bm7
The clouded out disguises put you in the room
E                          D
And though I wandered out alone
A           E              F#m     A
A thousand lights abounded on our home
 
D                     A
And I remember every sound it made
E                                 F#m     A
The clouded out disguises and the grave
D                         A
So yeah I know I’m still afraid
E                               F#m     A    D
Of letting go of choices I have made
 
E
All Delighted people raise their hands
F#m                    C#m
And I took you by the sleeve
A                       Bm               D
No other reason than to be your leading man
F#m                     C#m   G#
And you woke up with a fright
A                          Bm                  D
Our lives depended on the visions through the night
F#m                                 C#m             G#
Oh we had always, Oh we had always wanted to before
A                           Bm               F#
The hurricane inclined us, grappling on the floor
 
E
All Delighted people raise their hands
 
F#m                        C#m   G#
Still the force of nature spurns
A                            Bm            F#
Ideas of strength and style abated by the burning basement
 
E
All Delighted people raise their hands
 
D                      A
And I’m not easily confused
E                                    F#m    A
The trouble with the storm inside us brews
D                      A
But I have so much to give
 
E                               F#m   A
In spite of all the terror and abuse
 
INSTRUMENTAL
D (horn notes: D D, A A, F# F#, rest rest)
A (horn notes: E, D C#, B A, F# E)
F#  F#m (horn notes: fool around with F#, E, D)

D                         A
And the people bowed and prayed
 
Bm                           A
And what difference does it make
 
G                  D
It doesn’t matter anyway
Bm            F#m                E
The world surrounds us with its hate
 
(Short instrumental with the E…high E string 5 4 2 4)
 
 
F#m                     C#m
Hello darkness, my old friend
A                             Bm                  D
I’ve come to strangle you in spite of what you’d like
F#m                              C#m                         G#
And don’t be rascal, don’t be a laughing dog…in spite of odds
A                             Bm             F#
All I’m deciphering from the spirits in the light within
 
E
All delighted people raise their hands
 
F#m                          C#m   G#
In restless dreams I walked alone
A                          Bm           F#
The clouded out disguises left me in a dream of lightness
 
E
All delighted people raise their hands
 
D                         A
And the people bowed and prayed
C#m                   Bm
To the neon god they made
D                            A
And what difference does it make?
C#m                   Bm
I love you so much anyway
A                            G
And on your breast I gently laid
D                             Bm
Your arms surround me in the lake
      F#m                E  (high E string 5 4 2 4)
I am joined with you forever
 
INSTRUMENTAL
D (horn notes: D D, A A, F# F#, rest rest)
A (horn notes: E, D C#, B A, F# E)
F#  F#m (horn notes: fool around with F#, E, D)

E
All delighted people raise their hands
 
 
D                  A
I’m not easily confused
 
F#      F#m             B     (high E string – slide to 7, 9 7 5 7) x4
I feel alive I feel it glowing in the room
 
INSTRUMENTAL
F#  C#m  A  B (on high E string fool around with 2456, 9 7 9 7…etc.)
 
F#             C#m                     A             B
All delighted people raise their hands….
