People you were going to

From: Ignacio Vassallo

 
I don’t know how to write the first chord, I think is something like: Aadd9no1, but that sounds too stupid. The chord is: (B #c E) / B
 
(B #c E) / B
Your father has just left your mother,
A
gone off to live with his latest lover;
C        G      A
she sits there, just staring.
(B #c E) / B
So you get back to your own flat
A
because the atmosphere in there
C      G                 A
is so bad you can't bear it.
E                                B
And the people you were going to America with
D                A
just left on the dawn plane
C      G
without you,
G      A
without you.
C      G
without you.
G      A
without you.
 
 
 
(B #c E) / B         
The people in the downstairs flat
A
are no longer there now because they left
C         G              A
the gas tap on, they're all dead.
(B #c E) / B  
So you've no-one left to talk to,
A
you just lie there in melancholy,
C    G        A
half-naked on your unmade bed.
E                                B
And the people you were going to Africa with
      D               A
just left on the Southern Star
C      G
without you,
G      A
without you.
C      G
without you.
G      A
without you.
 
     Bm                                 A   
Yes, the haze that's been forming round your window-panes
    Bm                A
is now protracted and poisoned
        Bm                            A
and you cannot feel a portion of the world outside.
(B #c E) / B           
Can you imagine the way you'd feel
A
if all these things had happened to you
C        G                 A
and the doctor says you're dying?
(B #c E) / B   
That is the way that I feel now
A
on finding that your love belongs
   C       G          A
to someone else and not I.
E
My chance of heaven has just blown away
B                        D
upon a passing cloud and there is nothing that I can
A
Do
A       G
without you,
G       A
without you.
A       G
without you.
