Heyday


Myrrh



[Am]Emerald haunt in [G]overdrive


[Am]Nightmare descent into [G]Jericho city


[Am]Camel dust heralds our arrival


[Am]New Christ beneath the [G]drumkit moon


[Fmaj7]Oh Lord we are [G]threatened again


In the [Fmaj7]slipstream pull of the [G]federal men


[Fmaj7]Plummet in some [G]seamless night


Down [Fmaj7]here to earth it's [G]hopeless then





Apache gunman in the boiling crowd


Who never got to meet you last time


We're interrupted by the telephone


You didn't think they were invented then


Oh Lord we need miracles


We need more wine and gold


We need slaves and roads and personal favors


We need microphones and manifolds





{soc}


[F#m]How can you be so in[E]visible


[F#m]Give me the nerves to [E]see


[A]Privilege on [D]privilege


[F#m]An unwanted [E]discovery


{eoc}





So now we're cruising down this shuddering highway


With a dead sun shining on my back


And we talk about the way people treat us back there


Their hollow laughter, the pain in their eyes


Oh Lord I trust your intentions


But money strangles our love


Struggling like a fool with my junk and my jewels


You would have thought I'd had enough





{c:Chorus}



Tristesse

6th August 97 - Brian Smith Here's my interpretation of this song. It's a bit more complex than the chord-based one which follows it.

There seems to be a lot of ways to play this song. When I've seen Steve play it live he goes for a simplified version of the following arrangment, which sounds much like the acoustic performances he and Marty do when sharing the stage.




Chords (strings numbered from low E to high E)







D - 000232



D9 - 000230



G6 - 320000



Em7 - 022030



D9/F# - 200230



A7sus4 - X02030 (try and avoid the low E, but no probs if you can't)



F#m - 244222 (like Em, barre second fret)



F#m/A - X04222 This one's a bit awkward to play - avoid the low E



Fmaj7 - X03210



Em/A  - X05430 Just slide up two frets from Fmaj7







"Here in this desert"...



        D G6 (repeat till chorus) 



OR      D Em7 D9/F# G6







"A gunfight in Dodge City..."



F#m G F#m/A (if you can, otherwise repeat the first chord)







"All my life spent searching..."



Fmaj7 Em/A D   - For that second chord just slide up two frets from the



		 first.  Let the A string ring if, or block it if you 



		 don't like the sound.



Here's a simpler, chord-based version.



[D]Here in this [Em7]desert, be[F#m ?]neath the sun and [G]stars


Still troubled by the rumblings of a million distant cars


Please be good to me tonight, let me find my way


The air has some command in it I cannot disobey





[F#m]A gunfight in Dodge [G]City, a [D]murder in Bom[G]bay


[F#m]All these deeds and [G]worldly needs I [D]must shrug off to[G]day


[Fmaj7]All my life spent [Em7]searching for pro[D]wess


[Fmaj7]Left me lying [Em7]here with you, tris[D]tesse





I was working in an orchard that grew the strangest fruit


It wasn't Mother Nature that made those trees take root





Your children cannot hear you, they only want your loot


You hold on to their essence like a parachute


They never believed you were in distress


Now you've gone and left them with tristesse





[D]Oh, [G]waters in[A]flamed [G]


[D]Ah, [G]fires burning [A]out [G]


[D]Ah, [G]ice melting [A]down [G]


[D]Ah, [G]fires burnt [A]out [G]





[F#m]A hotel suite in a [G]rich man's town, a [D]hut in Botany [G]Bay


A [F#m]prisoner by my [G]own device, a [D]mountain in my [G]way





I'm [Fmaj7]gonna have to [Em7]alter my add[D]ress


"Cause [Fmaj7]I can't stay much [Em7]longer with [D]tristesse"


[Fmaj7]And they call this [Em7]carnival prog[D]ress


In[Fmaj7]vited by our [Em7]queen tonight, tris[D]tesse



Already Yesterday



[C]It's already [Em]yesterday, [Fmaj7]we're off the [Am]calen[G]dar


[C]I heard the [Em]sirens play [Fmaj7]just like an [Am]orche[G]stra


[C]Mechanical [Em]bird of prey [Fmaj7]sing for your [Am]empe[G]ror


[C]Last broken [Em]flash of love [Fmaj7]still in the [Am]came[G]ra





{soc}


[D]We don't [A/B]feel those locks and [G]chains


We won't [D]listen to the [G]lizard part of our [D]brains


[Em7]Giving the [A]orders


[D]Another [A/B]morning we'll be [G]gone


I start the [D]car for Ten Mile [G]Beach


And maybe [D]Avalon, [Em7]across the [A]water


{eoc}





It's already yesterday and nobody's answering


Disconncted, drift away, nobody's questioning


Head silver, feet of clay, who is surrendering


They fall in our heyday, I am remembering





{soc}


We can't feel those aches and pains


We won't listen to the voices in the city rain


Giving the orders


Another morning I'll be gone


I start the car for Violet Town


And then to Babylon, over the border


{eoc}



Columbus



The [Em]king had something [C]changed within him


I [Am]should have told him no


[Em]Oh Co[C]lombus, I [Am]never should have let you go


Now [Em]aching wires, [C]midnight fires


[Am]Things I could not know


[Em]Oh Co[C]lombus, I [Am]never should have let you go


[Am]You [G]don't suppose there'd


[Fmaj7]Be room in here some[D7]where for me


[Am]I [G]think I just need


[Fmaj7]Someones words to [D7]reassure me


[C]I don't blame [D]any of you, [Fmaj7]and I don't blame my[G]self





Waiting for my small reward


It's going to come somehow


Oh Colombus, I wish that you could see us now


We don't posess a single empty tear


Or furrowed browOh Colombus, I wish that you could see us now


You don't suppose there'd


Be room in here somewhere for me


I think I just need


Someone's words to reassure me


I can't change any of you, I can't change myself





The man had something strange about him


He should have let me know


Oh Columbus, I wish I'd never let you go


You don't suppose there'd


Be room in here somewhere for me


I think I just need


Someones words to reassure me


I don't blame any of you, and I don't blame myself


Colombus



Tantalized



{t:Tantalized}





[A]God I've [G]been a[A]sleep so [G]long, I've been [A]away [G] [A] [G]


[A]Back from [G]software [A]limbo the [G]natives call [A]today [G] [A] [G]


I let their [A]promises [G]bind me [A] [G]


I let se[A]ductive l[G]ogic blind [A]me [G]


I em[A]braced a ma[G]chine, I went [A]through the rou[G]tine


And I [A]hid from the [G]people who were [A]trying to [G]find me





{soc}


[Am]Till the day comes when you [FM7]realize


[C]Otherwise you never [E7]care


Pan[Am]dora's box reveals a [FM7]new surprise


Can't wait to [C]see your eyes, now you've been [E7]tantalized


{eoc}





For a hundred and one voluptuous days I broke the law


The labyrinth was closing so we panicked up a door


I let their wanton flesh obsess me


I felt their dreams and drugs assess me


I was hired and fired yet never inspired


Flattering, chattering words to impress me





{soc}


All that glittered had me mesmerized


Otherwise I would have dared


Guess the nature of our enterprise


Can't stop to sympathize, how you've been tantalized


{eoc}








I turned up in some harsh doomed city on another plane


I couldn't believe the room I got or the guests I entertained


I felt the dirty streets surround me


I let the buzzing swarm confound me


I gave money to ghosts, I insulted my hosts


I could never get off the stuff that spellbound me





{c:Chorus 1 and 2}

Disenchanted



    C      F       G    C             F                G


     Well look at you, hands full of money you always wanted to have


      C            F         G


     Saying sweet life is a downright drag


      C           F         G                          Em          G


     Down to the very last seed in the bag, as if it's never gonna end





    C          F         G      C             F               G


     And the scene is through, summer slipped under in this neighbourhood


          C           F       G


     I'd like to hold onto it if I could


                  C             F       G              Em             G


     But now I'm gonna have to let you go for good, my disenchanted friend





    C                G            Em            F   G


     They say that character you play is rising fast


         C                     G                      Em                F   G


     So you get drunk, make a half-second jump and experience it as the past


          Am              Em                  F


     But this is it, the closer you get, the deeper you go


          C                     G


     The tighter the net looks to me





    C          F       G          C                F                G


     Do you enjoy the view, they say it makes you dizzy your first time up there


           C       F                 G


     Till you get used to breathing rarefied air


        C                 F       G                      Em               G


     Auditioning for the part of Mister Despair, well I know him personally





    C          F         G        C              F                G


     And this hotel's a zoo, you gotta be some creature to get a room in here


              C           F           G


     You can live like a king on a throne of tears


             C           F           G                       Em            G


     It's a mighty long way from the innocent years, and it waits inevitably





    C                G            Em            F   G


     They say that character you play is rising fast


         C                     G                      Em                F   G


     So you get drunk, make a half-second jump and experience it as the past


          Am              Em                  F


     But this is it, the closer you get, the deeper you go


          C                     G   /  /  /


     The tighter the net looks to me





      Am  /  Em  /  F  /  C  G            G  /  /  /


     [                          ]  x3

     [              ]  x4





    C        F       G            C            F           G


     And I'm asking you, if you think that success is its own reward


      C               F                G


     Now then go and see what your persistence has scored


           C         F              G


     The voice is a-calling and it can't be ignored


          C              F               G


     You might be underground but you're over insured


          C             F               G


     You used to be unknown now you're mapped and explored


          C             F                 G


     You like to be untouched now you're handled and pawed


              Em          G


     And it's never gonna end





    C                G            Em            F   G


     They say that character you play is rising fast

     So you get drunk, make a half-second jump and experience it as the past


          Am              Em                  F


     But this is it, the closer you get, the deeper you go


          C                     G   /  /  /   C


     The tighter the net looks to me

Night Of Light



[A]Dishwater cafe in a torn paper street


A rundown future let me down now everything's complete


Uncurling human tragedy apparently a parody


Send my love upstairs to me she used to be a symphony





{soc}


[FM7]I [Em]let her [FM7]go [Em]into the [FM7]night


[Em]Night of light, [FM7]satellite, [Em]quite a sight to [A]see


{eoc}





Dream importer's underling who answers to the boss


Can't afford a breakage, I'll pay for any loss


Uncurling human tragedy there's definately a remedy


Let her come and look for me she used to be the enemy





{c:Chorus}





Seaside town in winter, I'm trying to write my book


She's broken down, it's raining, I said I'd have a look


Uncurling human tragedy appropriately a mystery


She tells my story back to me she said I'll live this chapter till eternity





{c:Chorus}
