The Barricades Of Heaven

Em
C
G
D
(x2)
Em
C
G
D
Running down along the towns along the shore
Em
C
G
D
When I was sixteen and on my own
Em
C
G
D
No I couldn't tell you what the hell those breaks were for
Em
C
G
D
I was just trying to hear my song
Em
C
G
D
(x2)
Em
C
G
D
Jimmy found his own sweet sound when he won that free guitar
Em
C
G
D
And we'd all get in the van and play
Em
C
G
D
Life became the Paradox, the Bell, the Rouge et noir
Em
C
G
D
And the stretch of road running to L.A.
Em
C
Pages turning
G
D
Pages we were years from learning
Em
C
G
D
Straight into the night our hearts were flung
C
G
D
C
D
Better bring your own redemtion when you come
C
G
D
C
To the barricades of heaven where I'm from
Em
C
G
D
(x2)
Em
C
G
D
All the world was shining from those hills
Em
C
G
D
With the stars above and the lights below
Em
C
G
D
Among those there to test their fortune and their will
Em
C
G
D
I lost track of the score long ago Pages turning ...
Em
F
C/e
Childhood comes for me at night
Em
F
C/e
The voices of my friends
Em
F
C/e
Your face bathing me in light
Em
F
C/e
I hope that never ends
Em
C
G
D
(x2)
Em
C
Pages turning
G
D
Pages torn and pages burning
Em
C
G
D
Faded pages open in the sun Pages turning ...

Fountain Of Sorrow

C
G
Em
D
C
G
Em
D4
D
C
G
Looking through some photographs I found inside a drawer
Em
D4
D
C
G
I was taken by a photograph of you
Em
D4
D
C
G
There were one or two I know that you would have liked a little more
Em
D4
D
C
G
But they didn?t show your spirit quite as true
Bm
G
C
G
You were turning ?round to see who was behind you
Bm
D
D/c
And I took your childish laughter by surprise
Bm7
C/g
C
D
Em
And at the moment that my camera happened to find you
Am7
C
G
C
G
There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes
Em
D4
D
C
G
Now the things that I remember seem so distant and so small
Em
D4
D
C
G
Though it hasn?t really been that long a time
Em
D4
D
C
G
What I was seeing wasn?t what was happening at all
Em
D4
D
C
G
Although for a while, our path did seem to climb
Bm
G
C
G
But when you see through love?s illusions, there lies the danger
Bm
D
D/c
And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool
Bm7
C/g
C
D
Em
So you go running off in search of a perfect stranger
Am7
C
While the loneliness seems to spring from your life
G
D
Like a fountain from a pool
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
You?ve known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
You?ve had to hide sometimes, but now you?re all right
G
C/g
C
G/b
Am7
And it?s good to see your smiling face tonight
G
Am7

C
G/b
Am7
G
Em
D4
D
C
G
Now for you and me it may not be that hard to reach our dreams
Em
D4
D
C
G
But that magic feeling never seems to last
Em
D4
D
C
G
And while the future?s there for anyone to change, still you know it?s seems
Em
D4
D
C
G
It would be easier sometimes to change the past
Bm
G
C
G
I?m just one or two years and a couple of changes behind you
Bm
D
D/c
In my lessons at love?s pain and heartache school
Bm7
C/g
C
D
Em
Where if you feel too free and you need something to remind you
Am7
C
There?s this loneliness springing up from your life
G
D
Like a fountain from a pool
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
You?ve known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em

You?ve had to hide sometimes but now you?re all right
G

And it?s good to see your smiling face tonight

Fountain of sorrow, fountain of light
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
You?ve known that hollow sound of your own steps in flight
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
You?ve had to struggle, you?ve had to fight
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
To keep understanding and compassion in sight
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
You could be laughing at me, you?ve got the right
C
G/d
D#dim7
Em
D
But you go on smiling so clear and so bright

Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.
C
