     I stood in this unsheltered place
D                                D/B
     'Til I could see the face behind the face     
Bm/G                      A               D

All that had gone before had left no trace
D                                    D/B

      Down by the railway siding
G                 D/Gb

In our secret world, we were colliding
       G                D/A

      All the places we were hiding love
G                    A/Gb    A      D/B

      What was it we were thinking of?
G                 A                D

So I watch you wash your hair
Underwater, unaware
And the plane flies through the air

Did you think I didn't have to choose it
That I alone could win or lose it
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

In this house of make believe
Divided in two like Adam and Eve
You put out and I receive


[D bass riff]

Oh the wheel it is turning spinning round and round
       D                            D

And the house it is crumbling but the stairways stand
        D                             D

C/D                     D

With no guilt and no shame, no sorrow or blame
        D                      D

Whatever it is, we are all the same
    D                  D

    Making it up in our secret world
C/D                     D

    Making it up in our secret world
C/D                     D

    Making it up in our secret world
C/D                     D

    Shaking it up    
C              G

    Breaking it up
C               G

    Making it up in our secret world
C             G         D

Seeing things that were not there
On a wing, on a prayer
In this state of disrepair


Ssh, listen....
