1. Followed you down to the end of the world

 

††† to wait outside your window,

†††††††††††††† Fm

††† in the heat of the rain I would call your name,

 

††† but you just passed me by.

††††††† Am

††† If you put me up like a fly on the wall,

†††††† C

††† you'll be to blame when the heavens fall.

†††† Fm

††† Give me a sign, give me a sing, you just passed me by

††††††††††† Am

†† The colours around me are fading away,

†††††††††† C

††† and Iíll be waiting come what may.

 

†††† Dm††††††††† ††Am††††††††††††††††††††††† Dm†††††††††††† ††††††††Am

I'll find you (Iíll find you) ! Yes, I'll find you (yes, Iíll find you) !

†††††††† ††††C †††††††††††††††††††††††G†††††††††††††††††††† Am

If I gotta be the man that walks the earth alone.††††

2. Followed the stars and I sailed to the sun

 

††† and held it in my fingers,

††††† Fm

††† alone on a beach on my own, out of reach,

 

††† you just passed me by.

†††† ††††Am

††† Iíll give you the world if you take my hand,

††††††††††††††††C

††† but you left me alone in the sinking sand.

†††††† Fm

††† Strike up the band for one last stand but you just passed me by.

†††††† Am

††† Show me the rules of the games you play,

†††††††††† C

††† and I'll be waiting, come what may.

 

†† ††Dm†††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††††††† Dm†††††††††††††††††††† Am

I'll find you (Iíll find you) ! Yes, I'll find you (yes, Iíll find you) !

†††††††† †††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††† G

If I gotta be the man that walks the earth...

†††† Dm†††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††††††Dm†††††††††††††††††††† Am

†††††††† †††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††† Am

If I gotta be the man that walks the earth alone.

3. Followed you down to the end of the world

 

††† to wait outside your window,

†††††††††††††† Fm

††† in the heat of the rain, Iíll call your name

 

††† but you just pass me by.

†††††††††† Am

††† Wherever you run, I'll be on your tail,

††††††††††† C

††† whenever you're hiding behind your veil...
