                  D (6)

    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.

     

                     D (6)

    I wanna feel, sunlight on my face

                                             G (2)

    See that dust cloud disappear without a trace

                          Bm (2)                         A (2)

    I wanna take shelter from the poison rain

                       Csus9 (4)

    Where the streets have no name

     

    Chorus:

                                             D (4)

    Where the streets have no name, Where the streets have no name

                                        G (4)

    We're still building then burning down love, burning down love

                      Bm (2)                         A (2)

    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

     

    Chorus

     

    Outro Chorus:

          D (4)

    It's all I can do, Our love turns to rust

                                G (4)

    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
