                [intro]

Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Dm Dm/F G6

[verse 1]

Cmaj7
Do you see that young pretender
Fmaj7
With the tear-marks on his face
Dm                            G6
His dark eyes burning when he talks
Cmaj7
I knew him in his splendour
Fmaj7
I've known him in disgrace
Dm                            G6
Who'll cut him down from this rock

[pre-chorus]

Am
He says bring me my horses
Em7
My symbols and my wheels
          Fmaj7                      Dm    G6
And we'll speak with our souls for a while
           Am
'Cause I'm sick and I'm torn
      Em7
And I long to be healed
        Fmaj7            Dm          G6    G6/C G6
And the truth's been too long out of style

[chorus]

G6                       Fmaj7
In my time on this earth
  C              G
I will speak the secret
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C            G
I will tell what is true
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C            G
I will say what the heart knows
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C        G
I will say I am you

[verse 2]

Cmaj7
I'm so tired of the sound
Fmaj7
My old fingers make
Dm                              G6
As they tease and torment my guitar
Cmaj7
And the man on my screen
Fmaj7
Is an actor and a fake
Dm                               G6
Yet he preens like a golden superstar

[pre-chorus]

Am
I cried in her arms
         Em7
When the darkening day was done
      Fmaj7                         Dm   G6
And I smelt the burning city in her hair
        Am
And the word on the tips
     Em7
Of a thousand million tongues
     Fmaj7
Went unspoken
        Dm            G6    G6/C G6
While a lie sped everywhere

[chorus]

G6                       Fmaj7
In my time on this earth
  C              G
I will speak the secret
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C            G
I will tell what is true
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C            G
I will say what the heart knows
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C        G
I will say I am you

[verse 3]

Cmaj7
Now November is here
Fmaj7
With its carpet of leaves
Dm                                G6
And the songs of the dead fill my ears
Cmaj7
All the champions are fallen
Fmaj7
All the heroes are deceived
Dm                               G6
And the world they made has disappeared

[pre-chorus]

Am
So let's tell it like is, man
Em7
Let's nail it on the line
         Fmaj7                               Dm G6
Let's be clean with our tongues from here on in
    Am
For we're deep in the heart
       Em7
Of the enemy's design
     Fmaj7           Dm            G6  G6/C G6
Just waiting for the breakout to begin

[chorus]

G6                       Fmaj7
In my time on this earth
  C              G
I will speak the secret
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C            G
I will tell what is true
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C            G
I will say what the heart knows
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C        G
I will say I am you
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C        G
I will say I am you
                    Fmaj7
In my time on earth
       C        G
I will say I am you
