Intro - Fm Gm G# Bb

Fm Gm G# Bb

So maybe you`re standing in some foreign town

Fm Gm G# Bb

You`ve walked for miles till the heat slows you down

Fm Gm G# Bb

And your jeans and your curls are bleached and split

Fm Gm G# Bb

And your money and your anger are all used up

Maybe I`m sorry about the light in this place

Makes my heart seem cold as the words on these pages

Maybe I`m reminded by a shop window displays or a decoration


Like some church candle that might just burn might just burn

C# D# Fm

`Cause we`re dancing under chandeliers ,And I`m telling you

C# D# Fm

Caught in the headlights ,And I`m yelling it at you

C# D# Fm

Why is it girl ,When the world is lit by lightning

C# D# Fm

That I keep telling you ,That I love you

So you`re ten miles out of this city at night

When do coloured lights become paint and glass and dust

And how I wonder what light to trust

The light of the distance or the light might just burn might just burn


Seraphim and Cherubim

Skies full of gold dust

Moonshine and starlight

Pockets full of rainbows

Windows and mirrored balls

Porcelain and silverlake

Dance hall neons flash and swing

Blow out your candles

It will call you Angel

When the world knows your name
