I wanna run, I want to hide

                                         G (2)

I wanna tear down the walls that hold me inside

                      Bm (2)                                A (2)

I wanna reach out       And touch the flame

                     Csus9 (4)

Where the streets have no name.

And when I go there, I go there with you

 

                   D (4)

It's all I can do

 

                      D (6)

The city's a flood, and our love turns to rust

                                                                         G (2)

We're beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust

                         Bm (2)                A (2)

I'll show you a place high on a desert plain,

                     Csus9 (4)

Where the streets have no name

We're beaten and blown by the wind, Blown by the wind.

                     D (6)

Oh and I see love, see our love turn to rust

                                    G (4)

And we're beaten and blown by the wind, blown by the wind

                  Bm (2)                                    A (2)

Oh when I go there,   I go there with you, it's all I can do
