                [Verse]
Em                           C
It was upon row of houses, tight skirts and baggy trousers
Bm
Grey men and cheap disguises, high hopes and higher rises
Em
Who lived a girl who was on a mission
C
Who lived a boy who was under suspicion
Bm
Tried hard to stay beside her
Bm
Until the devil put his seed inside her
Em                   C   
How? You know how... Sleep to love and the sand runs out
Bm 
So close to midnight
Em           C           Bm
Time to fly, Do or die, stung in the headlights

[Chorus]
Em            C
Here we lie, high and dry
Bm
The world will never see you 'till you open your eyes
Em              C
Say goodnight, kill the light
Bm                                          Em
The world will never hear you tonight, Idlewild

[Verse]
Em
For two years he tried to reach her
C
Worshiped the ground beneath her
Bm
She, she was always running... He, he saw the end was coming
Em
But now the story takes a turn
C
She wakes up and her sheets are burning
Bm                                                     Em
Head down against the fire... Now, now, now the table turns
Em                C
She won't learn, sleep to love and your bed starts burning
Bm
So close to midnight
Em        C                 Bm
Idlewild you don't know if you never need to

[Chorus]
Em            C
Here we lie, high and dry
Bm
The world will never see you 'till you open your eyes
Em              C
Say goodnight, kill the light
Bm                                          Em     C    Bm 
The world will never hear you tonight, Idlewild... Idlewild

[Verse]
Em
I thought that we were good together
C
I thought that we could weather the weather
Bm
Whether or not the wise the wherefores
Bm
That high hopes are only there because, because
Em
Because I thought the only thing between us
C
Was something shallow not a river so deep as sea is
Bm
Dredge up the wreckage our parents left us
Bm
Lay it on the banks to rot and fester
Em
Now a skeleton is like a death star
C
And Gretna Green and Derby, Manchester
Bm
I don't want to hear it now

[Chorus]
Em            C
Here we lie, High and dry
Bm
The world will never see you 'till you open your eyes
Em              C
Say goodnight, kill the light
Bm                                          Em   C       Bm  
The world will never hear you tonight, Idlewild... Idlewild
Em               C        Bm   Em
Kill the light, Idlewild...
