10538 overture

 C                                      F            Fm
Did you see your friend crying from his eyes today?
C                                           F            Fm
Did you see him run, through the streets and far away?
C               C4                   Gm
Did you see him run, did you see him fall?
D                 D4                 Am
Did his life flash by at the bedroom door?


Did you hear the news? It came across the air today.
Someone has been found on the rocks down in the bay.

Did you see that man running through the streets today?
Did you catch his face, was it 10538?

21st century man

  C             G
A penny in your pocket,
Am               Em
A suitcase in your hand,
F                  C
They won't get you very far,
Dm                   G
Now you're a twenty-first century man.

C              G
Fly across the city,
Am            Em
Far above the land,
F               C
You can do most anything,
Dm                   G
You're a twenty-first century man.

G          F           C           F      F C
Though you ride on the wheels of tomorrow,
G         F          C              F
You still wander the fields of your sorrow.

One day you're a hero,
The next day you're a clown,
There's nothing that is in between,
Now you're a twenty-first century man.

You should be so happy,
You should be so glad,
So why are you so lonely,
You're a twenty-first century man.

You stepped out of a dream believing everything was gone,
Return with what you've learned they'll kiss the ground you walk upon.

Things aren't how you thought they were,
Nothing have you planned,
So pick up your penny and your suitcase,
You're not a twenty-first century man.

Though you ride on the wheels of tomorrow,
You still wander the fields of your sorrow.

Twenty-first century man.

Hold On Tight

G           D              G
Hold on tight to your dream
C                          G
Hold on tight to your dream
C                     G
When you see your ship go sailing
C                      G
When you feel your heart is breaking
G        D              G
Hold tight to your dream.

It?s a long time to be gone
Time just rolls on and on
When you need a shoulder to cry on
When you get so sick of trying
Just hold tight to your dream

Chorus:
Em     Hm            Em       Hm
When you get so down that you can?t get up
Am      D              Am          D
And you want so much but you?re all out of luck
Em     Hm          Em       Hm
When you?re so downhearted and misunderstood
Am     Hm      C        D
Just over & over & over you could

Accroches-toi a ton reve
Accroches-toi a ton reve
Quand tu vois ton bateau partir
Quand tu sents -- ton coeur se briser
Accroches-toi a ton reve.

Chorus.

Hold on tight to your dream
Hold on tight to your dream
When you see the shadows falling
When you hear that cold wind calling
Hold on tight to your dream.

Oh, yeah
Hold on tight to your dream
Yeah, hold on tight...
To your dream.

Rain Is Falling

      A              F#m
Early in the morning
D                   E            A   E
The sun was up and the sky was very blue

Without a warning
As I looked out, my thoughts returned to you.

A                           C#
A noise in the city made the children (run)
D                H
And hide themselves away
A                 C#m                   Hm   E
And thunder boomed and lightning filled the sky.

Looking from this window
A thousand rivers running past my door
Standing on an island
Looking for someone upon the shore

I can see it very clearly,
Nothing?s really changed
Then lightning strikes across an empty sky.


CHORUS:
A                  Dm
Ooohh, the rain is falling
A                  Dm
Ooohh, the rain is falling
A          G#      C#m
Ooohh, the rain is falling
Hm        Dm           A
Will it wash away those lonely tears?
[Dm A Dm]

(It?s raining, it?s pouring, the old man is snoring)

With their brand new time transporter
They?ll think maybe I fought to get away
But with all their great inventions

And all their good intentions, here I stay
Down on the corner where the sun had shone
The people gathered round
Then scattered as the raindrops hit the ground.

Chorus.

(It?s raining, it?s pouring, the old man is snoring)

Chorus.

(It?s raining, it?s pouring, the old man is snoring)
(Rain rain, go away, come again another day)

C       F
One day,
G         C        F
I gotta get out of here,
G         C             F
I gotta make everything clear,
G         C     F  G
I gotta see you.

C      F
I know,
G           C                 F
The way that I feel is wrong, so wrong.
G     Am       G F
But I gotta carry on,
G          C     F  G
When you ain?t around.

C                  Am
I believe things are going wrong,
Dm               G
And the nights go on and on,
C                  Am
All your dreams have flown away,
Dm                G
And the sun won?t shine today.

C               F                G
The lights go down (I want you baby)
C               F                G
The lights go down (I need you baby)
C               F
The lights go down
G       Am    G F  G
And there?s no one around.

I know,
You?re waiting so close to me,
But how will you ever see,
As time rolls away.

Lonely,
But trying to be so proud,
And just as I turn around,
The lights go down.

I believe things are going wrong,
And the night goes on and on,
All your dreams have flown away,
And the sun won?t shine today.

The lights go down (I want you baby)
The lights go down (I need you baby)
The lights go down
And there?s no one around.

The lights go down (I want you baby)
The lights go down (I need you baby)
The lights go down
And there?s no one around.

Все аккорды - барре.


Intro:

Dm
Remember the good old 1980?s?
Am
When things were so uncomplicated.
Bb
I wish I could go back there again
A
And everything could be the same.

Verse:
Dm
I?ve got a ticket to the moon
G                      Dm
I?ll be leaving here any day soon
G                   Dm            C   Bb
Yeah, I?ve got a ticket to the mo-o-on
C              F          A
But I?d rather see the sunrise in your eyes.

Got a ticket to the moon
I?ll be rising high above the earth so soon
And the tears I cry might turn into the rain
That gently falls upon your window
You?ll never know.


Chorus:
Dm     C           Bb      A
Ticket to the moon (ticket to the moon)
Ticket to the moon (ticket to the moon)
Dm            C     Bb            A
Ticket to the moon (ticket to the moon).
[Dm Am Dm Am]

Bb
Fly, fly through a troubled sky
C                                 Dm
Up to a new world shining bright, oh, oh.


Verse:
Flying high above
Soaring madly through the mysteries that come
Wondering sadly if the ways that led me here
Could turn around and I would see you there
Standing there (and I would see you there, waiting...)

Ticket to the moon
Flight leaves here today from Satellite Two
As the minutes go by, what should I do?
I paid the fare, what more can I say?
It?s just one way (only one way)...

Chorus x2

Yours Truly, 2095

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

Am                      Em
I sent a message to another time
Dm            Em                 Am
But as the days unwind, this I just can?t believe
I sent a note across another plane
Maybe it?s all a game, but this I just can?t conceive.

Can you hear me?

I drive the very latest hovercar
I don?t know where you are
But I miss you so much till then
I met someone who looks a lot like you
She does the things you do
But she is an IBM.

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

She?s only programmed to be very nice
But she?s as cold as ice
Whenever I get too near
She tells me that she likes me very much
But when I try to touch
She makes it all too clear.

She is the latest in technology
Almost mythology
But she has a heart stone
She has an I.Q. of 1001
She has a jumpsuit on
And she?s also a telephone.

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

Chorus:
C      G                          C
Is that what you want? (Is it what you want?)
G                           C
Is it what you really want? (Is it what you really want?)
G                         C
Is that what you want? (Is it what you want?)
G
Is it what you really want?

I realize that it must seem so strange
That time has rearranged
But time has the final word
She knows I think of you, she reads my mind
She tries to be unkind
She knows nothing of our world

Although her memory banks overflow
No one would ever know
For all she says: "Is that what you want?"
Maybe one day I?ll feel her cold embrace
And kiss her interface
?Til then, I?ll leave her alone.

I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

Chorus.

"Is that what you want?"
