D                                              G                                      D              G

Friday night I'm going nowhere--all the lights are changing green to red

  D                                   G                                        D        G

Turning over TV stations, situations running through my head

  D                                                         G                                                     D    G

Looking back through time you know it's clear that I've been blind I've been a fool

D                                              G                                          D          G

To open up my heart to all that jealousy, that bitterness, that ridicule

Saturday I'm running wild and all the lights are changing red to green

  D                                                         G                                      D               G

Moving through the crowd I'm pushing chemicals all rushing in my bloodstream

        D                                                       G                                          D      G

Only wish that you were here you know I'm seeing it so clear I've been afraid

       D                                                 G                               D                    G

To show you how I really feel admit to some of those bad mistakes I've made

 

Chorus

If you want it come and get it (for) crying out loud

D                         A                    Em         G

The love that I was giving you was never in doubt

D                 A                           Em           A

Let go your heart let go your head and feel it now

D                A                            Em            A (2)

Let go your heart let go your head and feel it now

D                                              G                              D              G

Sunday all the lights of London shining--sky is fading red to blue

      D                                                           G                                   

I'm kicking through the autumn leaves and wondering where it is you might

      D           G

be going to

  D                                                       G                                   D      G

Turning back for home--you know I'm feeling so alone I can't believe

  D                                        G                                             D                  G

Climbing on the stair, I turn around to see you smiling there in front of me

Let go your heart let go your head and feel it now

D                 A                           Em           A

Let go your heart let go your head and feel it now

D                 A                           Em           A

Let go your heart let go your head and feel it now
