    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

     

    Em x2

     

     D                                          G                                      D                 G

    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

    D                 A                       Em                          F#m (can substitute A)

    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

    Babylon

     

    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

     

    Chorus 2:

    D                 A                       Em                          F#m (can substitute A)

    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

    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 (2)

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