How To Play

VERSE
          Am               AmMaj7/F#
Took the fireworks and the vanity
    F                     C
The circuit board and the city streets
F                      C
Shooting star, swaying palm tree
G                        Am
Laid it at the Arbiter's feet
 
VERSE
           Am                         AmMaj7/F#
If I could change my mind, change the paradigm
F                  C
Prepare myself for another life
F                      C
Forgive myself for the many times
      G                               Am
I was cruel to something helpless and weak
 
CHORUS
    F                  G
But here it come, that heavy love
    C                   Am
I’m never gonna move it alone
F                  G
Here it come, that heavy love
C                    Am
Tag it on a tenement wall
F                  G
Here it come, that heavy love
E7/G#                        Am
Someone's gotta share in the load
F                 G
Here it come that heavy love
    F           G       C5-G5-F5-E5
I’m never gonna move it alone
 
Am C F C F Am G
 
VERSE
      Am
I was dressed in white
           AmMaj7/F#
Touched by something pure
F                     C
Death obsessed like a teenager
        F                        C
Sold my tortured youth, piss and vinegar
          G                       Am
I’m still angry with no reason to be
 
VERSE
       Am            AmMaj7/F#
At the architect who imagined this
        F                  C
For the every-man, blessed Sisyphus
         F             C
Slipping steadily into madness
    G                           Am
Now that's the only place to be free
 
CHORUS
    F                  G
But here it come, that heavy love
       C                   Am
You’re never gonna move it alone
F                  G
Here it come, that heavy love
C             Am
Tattooed on a criminal's arm
F                 G
Here it come that heavy love
E7/G#                      Am
Someone gotta share in the load
F                    G
Oh here it come that heavy love
F                  G       C5-G5-F5-E5
You’re never gonna move it alone
 
Am C F C F Am G
 
BRIDGE
   Am      Am#7    C
No I don’t want to play
       F     C            F     G
It’s a shell game, it’s a shell game.
 
VERSE
Am                  AmMaj7/F#
Distorted sounds on oscilloscopes
F                       C
Distorted facts I could never cope
   F                  C
My private life is an inside joke
G                         Am
No one will explain it to me
 
VERSE
           Am                 AmMaj7/F#
Will it be everything that we ever need
F               C
Everyone on the count of three,
F               C
Everyone on the count of three
    G
All together now.
 
CHORUS
    F                  G
But here it come, that heavy love
      C                   Am
We’re never gonna move it alone
F                  G
Here it come, that heavy love
C                       Am
Playing as the cylinder rolls
F                 G
Here it come that heavy love
  E7/G#                   Am
I only wanna share in the load
   F                 G
Oh here it come that heavy love
    F           G       C5-G5-F5-E5 x2
I’m never gonna move it alone
