How To Play

Intro:
C#m
 
Verse 1:
C#m                C#m              C#m
    Time it tells, living in my hometown.
               C#m
Wedding bells, they begin easy.
C#m               C#m                  C#m
    Live it down, Baby don't talk that much.
                 C#m
Baby knows, that Baby don't tease me.
E                E
    In the park, we could go walking.
A                 A
Down in the dark, we could go sailing.
C#m             C#m
    On the sea.
C#m             C#m
 
C#m              C#m                   C#m
    Always here, always on time, close call. 
                C#m
Was it love, or was it just easy?
C#m                   C#m                   C#m
    Money talks, when people need shoes and socks.
               C#m
Steady boys, I think that she needs me.
E          E                    A
I was just sipping on something sweet.
                A
I don't need political process.
 
Prechorus 1:
C#m                                 G#m
    I got this feeling that they're gonna break down the door.
E                                   F#m
    I got this feeling that they're gonna come back for more.
C#m                            G#m
    See, I was thinking that I lost my mind,
E                               F#m
    but it's been getting to me all this time
    G#         G#
and don't stop dragging me down.
 
Chorus 1:
E            B
Silently, reflection
C#m               A
turns my world to stone.
E             B
Patiently, correction
C#m            G#
leaves us all alone.
    A               B
And sometimes I'm a-travelling,
       C#m                B   A
but tonight this engine's failing.
    B
 
    C#m              A
And I still hear the children playing:
 
Verse 2:
C#m                C#m                         C#m
    “Kick the can, kick the can, skip and blackjack.” 
                  C#m
“Steal a car, and Ring-Around-Rosie.”
C#m                 C#m
    “Rock 'n' Roll, Candyland, Bogeyman.” 
C#m                C#m
    “Run away, and give me your sneakers.”
C#m                 C#m               C#m
    Acid rain, when Abel looked up at Cain.
          C#m
We began, weeping and wailing.
C#m                 C#m                   C#m
    Hurry high from pestilence, pills and pride.
                 C#m
It's a shame, we could've gone sailing.
E                     E                 A
    But heaven knows, heaven knows everything.
              A
Tranquillise.
 
Prechorus 2:
C#m                                 G#m
    I got this feeling that they're gonna break down the door.
E                                   F#m
    I got this feeling that they're gonna come back for more.
C#m                            G#m
    See, I was thinking that I lost my mind,
E                               F#m
    but it's been getting to me all this time
    G#         G#

Chorus 2:
E            B

E             B

    C#m              A
And I still hear the children playing.
B                  F#m            E
Dead beat dancers, come to us and stay.
 
OUTRO
       B                    C#m
'Cos I don't care where you been
      B                   E
and I don't care what you seen.
          C#m               A
We're the ones who still believe
          B             E
and we're looking for a page
        B                C#m
in that lifeless book of hope,
      B                     E
where dreams might help you cope.
          C#m            A
Where the bushes and the bombs,
   B            E
oh-oh, tranquillise.
