I said no, no, you're not the one for me And my heart hit a problem, in the early hours, So I stopped it dead for a beat or two. But I cut some cord, and I shouldn't have done it, And it won't forgive me after all these years So I sent it to a place in the middle of nowhere With a big black horse and a cherry tree. Now it won't come back, 'cause it's oh so happy And now I've got a hole for the world to see

Invisible Empire

C
G
I thought the candle was gonna go out
Am
F
The wind was blowing and the door was open
C
G
F
But the candle never went out, never went out
C
G
The wave found its way to the shore
Am
F
I thought it was a ripple and nothing more
C
G
F
But the wave found its way all the way to the shore
G
Am
F
C
Oh-oh I wanna burn this house
G
Am
F
C
I know I wanna jump into the fire
G
Am
F
C
Oh-oh I've got to tear them down
G
Am
F
C
The pinnacles of my invisible empire I know the gamble never works twice All the distractions at the table and the weighted dice But the thrill of it feels so nice, you'd do it all again But I look to the chips and lose, I'm standing on the platform with my neck in the noose And I know it's not my time, not my time Oh-oh I wanna burn this house I know I wanna jump into the fire Oh-oh I've got to tear them down The pinnacles of my invisible empire And if I do all the things I do, well I tell myself that I'm staying true I'll never stop, you know I'll never stop, no I'll never think about it Put an end to all this time, that I would spend with it on my mind I never stopped, you know I never stop, you know I always wondered about it I wondered about the wonder. Oh-oh I wear a rusting crown I know this dynasty is falling The crowd shouts for another round I see the ruin The spectacular, diamonds buried, icebergs, The minarets, and market-places And signal fires of my invisible empire.
