I wait for the day to burn into night
A---------------F---G-------------C------------------------------------

And then I wait for daaaaaaaaaawn

You know I must be home

Hold tight cyclone
Dm-----------C----------------------------------------------------------

Found love in the music but lost in the overtones

Sweat on the brow, blood on the lips, love for the money
Dm----------------------C------------------G---------------------------

And gold at the fingertips...at the fingertips

Bb--------------------C-----------------Dm-----------------------------

C-----F-----Dm-------------C-------------------------------------------

 

Hold tight cyclone

The fool that continued with love keeps me holding on

Don't need no religion to look for the kingdom come

We were so close there was no room

Dm------------C--------------------Dm---------------------------------------

We bled inside each otherís wounds

D----------C----------------------Dm-----D----------------------------------

We all had caught the same disease

Dm-----------C---------------Am--Dm--------------------------------------

And we all sang the songs of peace

Dm------C-----------------------Dm------------------------------------------

Some came to sing some came to pray

Dm--------------C---------------------Dm------------------------------------

Some came to keep the dark away

Dm----F--------C--------------G-Dm----------------------------------------
