Em    F#m   G    D                  C   C9
Eight miles high and when you touch down
G                     D             C  C9  C  C9
You'll find that it's stranger than known
Em    F#m    G      D                     C  C9
Signs in the street that say where you're going
G              D               C  Em Am  Em F#m G F#m Em F#m G F#m Em
Are somewhere just being their own
Em  F#m G  D                   C  C9
Nowhere is there warmth to be found
G            D                     C C9 C C9
Among those afraid of losing their ground
Em   F#m  G    D             C  C9
Rain gray town known for its sound
G         D           C  Em Am    Em F#m G F#m Em F#m G F#m Em
In places small faces unbound

SOLO

Em    F#m G       D          C  C9
Round the squares huddled in storms
G             D                   C  C9  C  C9
Some laughing some just shapeless forms
Em  F#m  G      D              C  C9  C  C9
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines
G           D              C  Em Am    Em
Some living, some standing alone
