Tinseltown has followed me from Tinseltown to

Grey adorable city by the docks

Girls will walk in moving air

The sun hangs low, the girls don’t care
Am G F, E Dm, C Bm, E
As they paint themselves at dusk

I want the world to stop (I want the world to stop)

The night, the night

Towns’ and cities’ populations up and grow

The workers move to the suburbs [blank bar]

In between I watch and go

I run alongside rush hour traffic

A prayer for every car

Am Dm C E
Am Dm C E

I want to write a message to you

Every day at ten o’clock in the evening

Yellow pearl my city is
C E
This is your art This is your Balzac,
Am G F, E Dm, C Bm E
your Brookside, and your Bach

Am G F, E Dm, C Bm E x 8!
