Intro: / C - - - / x4

 

  C                                 Em

Fog lifts from the harbor, dawn goes down today

     Am                                      F

An agent crests the shadows of a nearby alleyway

C                             Em

Piles of broken bricks, signposts on the path

Am                                        F

Every moment points toward the aftermath  Yeah

 

/ C - - - / Dm - - - / F - - - / - - - - / x2

 

C                                          Em

Sailors straggle back from their nights out on the town

 Am                                     F

Hopeless urchins from the city gather around

              C                        Em

Spies from imperial China wash in with the tide

           Am                          F

Every battle heads toward surrender on both sides

 

Chorus:

               C                        Am

And I am coming home to you

            F                         C (1)   G (1)

With my own blood in my mouth

                C                      Am

And I am coming home to you

               F (1)        G (1)

If it’s the last thing that I do

 

/ C - - - / Dm - - - / F - - - / - - - - / x4

 

C                               Em

Bells ring in the tower, wolves howl in the hills

    Am                                           F

Chalk marks show up on a few high windowsills

          C                                            Em

And a rabbit gives up somewhere, and a dozen hawks descend

Am                                      F

Every moment leads toward its own sad end   Yeah

 

/ C - - - / Dm - - - / F - - - / - - - - / x2

 

   C                                              Em

Ships loosed from their moorings capsize and then they’re gone

Am                                          F

Sailors with no captains watch a while and then move on

          C                                           Em

And an agent crests the shadows and I head in her direction

Am                               F

All roads lead toward the same blocked intersection

 

Chorus
