Intro: Am D C D (4x)

 

Am D

You want to know why I hate you?

C D

Well I~ll try and explain...

Am D

You remember that day in Paris

C D

When we wandered through the rain

Am D

And promised to each other

C D

That we~d always think the same

Am D C

And dreamed that dream to be two souls as one

Am D

And stopped just as the sun set

C D

And waited for the night

Am D

Outside a glittering building

C D

Of glittering glass and burning light...

 

 

And in the road before us stood a weary greyish man

Who held a child upon his back

A small boy by the hand

The three of them were dressed in rags and thinner than air

And all six eyes stared fixedly on you

 

Bm A

The father~s eyes said beautiful

Bm A

How beautiful you are

Bm A

The boy~s eyes said how beautiful

Bm

She shimmers like a star

Am Em

The child~s eyes uttered nothing

F

But mute and utter joy

Am Em

And filled my heart with shame for us

F

For the way we are

Am Em F

(The way we are)

 

 

D Am D Am D Am F F

 

Am D

I turned to look at you

C D

To read my thoughts upon your face

Am D

And gazed so deep into your eyes

C D

So beautiful and strange

Am D C D

Until you spoke and showed me understanding is a dream

Am D

-I hate these people staring

C D

Make them go away from me-

 

 

The father~s eyes said beautiful

How beautiful you are

The boy~s eyes said how beautiful

She shimmers like a star

The child~s eyes uttered nothing

But pride and utter joy

And stilled my heart with sadness

For the way we are

 

D Am

And this is why I hate you

D Am

And how I understand

D Am F

That no-one ever knows or loves another

 

Am

Or loves another
