                   SUMMER, HIGHLAND FALLS   (Billy Joel)

Intro:  F(no 3)  Fmaj7    Gm7    Bb+2
        Am7      C        Bb+2
              F                 Fmaj7
They say that these are not the best of times
    Gm7                Bb+2               F  Fmaj7  Gm7  Bb+2
But they're the only times I've ever known
        F                Fmaj7         Gm7
And I believe there is a time for meditation
     Bb+2               C  G C
In cathedrals of our own
A7       Dm               C            Bb+2        F
Now I've seen that sad surrender in my lover's eyes
    G7sus      G7              Csus      C
And I can only stand apart and sympathize
           Bb              F            Gm7
For we are always what our situations hand us
            C         Bb+2     Eb  Bb
It's either sadness or euphoria

So we'll argue and we'll compromise
And realize that nothing's ever changed
For all our mutual experience
Out separate conclusions are the same.
Now we are forced to recognize our inhumanity
Our reason coexists with our insanity
And though we choose between reality and madness
It's either sadness or euphoria

    Dm               C             Bb+2    F
How thoughtlessly we dissipate our energies
   G7sus            G7                Csus     C
Perhaps we don't fulfill each other's fantasies
          Bb             F             Gm7
And as we stand upon the ledges of our lives
           C            Bb+2    Eb  Bb
With our respective similarities
            C         F       
It's either sadness or euphoria.
