When playing this song, continue to play the chord at the end of each line until noted 
the next line. For example,
continue to play the Am after the word "lonely" in the second line of the first verse 
the Em on the word "iron" in the third line.

Capo 1st fret, Standard Tuning.

Intro: Am, Em, G, D, Am

Verse:
                 Em                         G
In the city, she wakes, before the break of day,
                  D               Am
Cold water on her face, so lonely
                      Em                          G
Between the glass and iron, she'd like to start a fire,
                    D                           C
She'd burn the city down, she'd burn it all for love


Chorus:
                G                      D
Can you see the people, staring at the steeples
                      Am         C
Wondering why they're so lonely, so lonely?
                   G                    D
Can you hear their voices, joining in a chorus,
                   Am         C
Wondering why it's so lovely, so lovely?


Am, Em, G, D, Am (Play until Verse)


Verse:
                 Em                          G
In the city, she wakes, the smoke is cleared away,
                  D                      Am
The fire's just a flame, still breathing,
               Em             G
She made a big debut on Fifth Avenue,
                       D                             C
Then the village voice review took the fire from her eyes


Chorus:
               G                       D
Can you see the people, staring at the steeples
                      Am         C
Wondering why they're so lonely, so lonely?
                   G                    D
Can you hear their voices, joining in a chorus,
                   Am         C
Wondering why it's so lovely, so lovely?

Am                    C                        G
We're walking right beside the ones we used to fight,
                   Em         D              Am
The flag is waving white, the flag is waving white,
                    C                       G
We see for the first time, when we stop the fight,
                   Em         D              C
The flag is waving white, the flag is waving white


Chorus:
                G                      D
Can you see the people, staring at the steeples
                      Am         C
Wondering why they're so lonely, so lonely?
                   G                    D
Can you hear their voices, joining in a chorus,
                   Am         C
Wondering why it's so lovely, so lovely?


Outtro: G, D, Am, C (play until end or desired stop)
