five years

Placebo

Tom: G
G 
  pushing through the market square 
Em 
  so many mothers sighing 
Am 
  news had just come over, we have 
C 
  Five years left of crying 
 
G 
  news guy wept and told us 
          Em 
  he said earth, was really dying 
Am 
  cried so much his face was wet 
             C 
  then i knew, he was not lying 
 
           G 
  i heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies 
             Em 
  there were boys toys, electric guns and TVs 
   C 
  my brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare 
           Am 
  i had to cram so many things to store everything in there 
                 C 
  and all the fat, skinny people 
Am                      C 
  and all the tall short, people 
Am                      G 
  and all the nobody people 
C                         D 
  and all the somebody people 
                                  Am      C 
  never thought i'd need, so many people 
 
G 
  girl my age went off her head 
Em 
  hit some tiny children 
Am 
  and if the black hadn't have pulled her off 
          C 
  then i think, she would have killed them 
 
G 
  soldier with a broken arm 
Em 
  used to stare into the wheels of a cadillac 
Am 
  cop knelt to kiss the feet of a priest 
         C 
  and a queer threw up at the sight of that, well 
 
G 
  think i saw you in an ice-cream parlour 
Em 
  drinking milkshakes cold and long 
  Am 
  smiling and waving and looking so fine 
 C 
  don't think you knew you were in this song 
 
  G 
  and it was cold, and it rained, so i felt like an actor 
  Em 
  and i thought of ma, and i wanted to get back there 
  Am 
  your face, your waist, the way that you talk 
 C 
  i miss you you're beautiful 
 
G 
  we got five years stuck on my eyes 
Em 
  five years, what a surprise, we got 
Am 
  five years, my brain hurts alot 
C 
  five years, that's all we got 
G                    (ending chords are Gs)    
  we got, five years
