                Fortress Around Your Heart – STING 

Gm9 (xxxx10-10 xxxx8-8 xxxx6-5 xxxx8-8) 
 Under the ruins of a walled city
 Crumbling towers in beams of yellow light
 No flags of truce, no cries of pity
 The siege guns have been pounding all through the night

Eb (xxxx9-9 xxxx8-8 xxxx6-6 xxxx8-8)            
 It took a day to build the city
 We walked through the streets in the afternoon

F#m9 (xxxx9-9 xxxx7-7 xxxx5-4 xxxx7-7)          
 As I returned across the fields I'd known
 I recognized the walls that I once made
 I had to stop in my tracks for fear 

B7/4 (xxxx7-7 xxxx5-5 xxxx4-4  SI7/4)           
 Of walking on the mines I'd laid

 Chorus:
   Em      D/F#       G    Am     D
 And if I built this fortress around your heart
   Em      D/F#       G    Am     D
 Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
   Em      D/F#       G    Am     D
 Then let me build a bridge, for I cannot fill the chasm 
    Cm7     Dm7     Eb7+  F  
 And let me set the battlements on fire 

Gm9
 Then I went off to fight some battle
 That I'd invented inside my head
 
Eb 
 Away so long for years and years
 You probably thought or even wished that I was dead
 
F#m9
 While the armies all are sleeping
 Beneath the tattered flag we made
 I had to stop in my tracks for fear

B7/4
 Of walking on the mines I'd laid

 Repeat Chorus

Gm9
 This prison has now become your home
 A sentence you seem prepared to pay
 
Eb
 It took a day to build the city
 We walked through it's streets this afternoon

F#m9
 As I returned across the lands I'd known
 I recognized the fields where I'd once played
 I had to stop in my tracks fear

B7/4
 Of walking on the mines I'd laid

 Repeat Chorus
