Element of Light

If You Were a Priest
[I'm not sure if it's G# or G#(add D).  Personally, I can't figure out
a way to play a G#(add D) so I play it as G#.  If someone with more 
gifted fingers could help me out, please do]

A             G#(add D)
If you were a priest
G               F#    /B
I would wait at least
A           G#
up until confession time and 
G               F#   /B
creep into your box
A                G#
breathing like a fox
G             F#      /B
hunting for obsession time and
B                    E            B            E
I've thrown a lot of time away to be with you
B               E              B        E
So please don't lock away your eyes
If you were a nun
I would surely run
down on to the hospital and
cover all your charts
with decorated hearts
A palpitating ritual
My grapes are where your oysters are]
I've thrown a lot of time away to be with you
So please don't lock away your eyes

If you were a ghost
I would treasure most
time I never spent with you and
things you never said
tattered, grim and dead
'til I knew what I meant to you and
I've thrown a lot of time away to be with you
So please don't lock away your eyes

    G                           G7                 C
The widows of a lifetime keep a warning in their eye
    G                           G7             C
The widows of a lifetime can do anything but cry
		Bb       C        G
They never stop bleeding
    G                             G7               C

	G                                      G7             C
They've got one thing in common - they're both crying out for meat
		Bb       C        G
They never stop bleeding,
		C        Bb       G
They never stop bleeding

(instrumental, as verse)

I'm sorry for the future and I'm sorry for the past
I'm sorry for the sailor who is lashed before the mast
They never stop bleeding

Now you can bleed internally or you can bleed outside
The groom is always edgy when he's standing with the bride
They never stop bleeding, you never stop bleeding

E                                 D
We're overheating in a small town world
E                                D
We're overeating in a small town world
A                                     G
I hear the sound of several different crimes
E                              D
The distant eel and the silver chimes
D                        G
Lieutenant Hodges often said to me
A                                E
I see a shoal of them far out to sea

Bm       E
Bass ...

A distant cormorant above the grey
It wheels in dots and then it falls away
A feather biro in a knotted clump
Performs a vixen with a feline hump
I wanna hold you in a solar globe
The way your body is beneath a robe

Bass ...

The juicy flounder and the tender chub
Will swim around you when you leave the pub
Their mouths are open and they will not shut
Unless you kiss them all behind the hut
But don't go messing with a guy like Reg
He'll leave you gurgling behind the hedge

Bass ...

The looming mullet and the wily bream
Are at the window with a quiet scream
The feisty barbel and the gruesome tench
Are decomposing on a yellow bench
There's something fluttering upon the sand
And all I wanna do is hold your hand

Bass ...

So don't go cycling around the town
He'll interfere with you and hang around
I know it's nasty what the papers said
But information happens to be read
Now things go  in and out of him like eels
A bass responds to you the way he feels

A
He'd never make love to a loaf of bread
F#m
Unless of course he found one in his bed
D
Now frogs are reproducing on your back
B7                               E
And bubbles keep emerging from a crack
E                               D
It's not a cormorant it's not a shag
E                                D  E
It's only something in a plastic bag

Airscape
E           A         Bsus4      A
And in the element of light
E          A              Bsus4      A
The sun reflects from the waves, inshore it spangles
E            A            Bsus4               A               E
The child of air is borne upon the winds that blow across the sea
A    Bsus4      A

E           A         Bsus4      A
And in the element of summer
E          A                 Bsus4    A
The cliffs suspended in the heat, the air in columns
E         A             Bsus4             A               E
The tiny figures of the world are walking underneath your feet
    A               Bsus4
And underneath your hair

A            Bsus4   A           Bsus4
Where angels wander, I'll wander too
A            Bsus4        E
Where angels wander, over you


etc etc etc!  Bsus4, BTW, is played (xx4440).

That's all there is to it! Well, not quite. There is a short instrumental
break, and a coda, both of which consist simply of one chord... D+2

Enjoy!

Raymond Chandler Evening
       A                B
It's a Raymond Chandler Evening
       A                B
At the end of someone's day
	A              B
And I'm standing in my pocket
	A      B       E
And I'm slowly turning grey
I remember what I told you
But I can't remember why
And the yellow leaves are falling
In a spiral from the sky
	  C#m  A      B
There's a body on the railings
       C#m    A     B
That I can't identify
	F#         A     
And I'd like to re-assure you
	E                B
But I'm not that kind of guy
It's a Raymond Chandler Evening
And the pavements are all wet
And I'm lurking in the shadows
'Cause it hasn't happened yet

The Leopard
E  A  G#m F#    
    
    E            A       G
She walks like a leopard
    E            A    G#m  F#
her feet padding down down down
with spars on her shadow
that sway as the sun goes round
he lies in the orchard
and gazes into the sun
his body is burning
but not for just any one.

D
one more animal
A                       E
one more fox will slip away
D
you're an animal
A                       E
like your father in his day

I walk through the winter
I watch and I go insane
I see the formation
but don't make me look again

one more animal
no one thought would get away
hear the orchestra
of the leopard and the prey

Somewhere Apart
I think it's

Am: x77555  Am(M7):   x76555  Am7: x75555  Am6: 5x4555 C: 33555x
F:  133211  D7(add9): x54530  A7:  002020


Intro: Am  Am(M7)  Am  Am(M7)

	    Am   Am(M7)  Am
Somewhere apart
	       C
Somewhere you must be dreaming
F              D7(add9)           F     D7(add9)
Somewhere the world is screaming
	    Am    Am(M7)   Am
Somewhere apart

...and so on... Then:

F          D7(add9)                  C
So get me fish eggs, and a violin
	   F         G        Am   Am(M7)  Am
I'm gonna burn your bongos tonight

...with:

	     F                       D7(add9)          A7
And all the see-through things come crawling from the sea

Finally, the 'Phantoms of the dispossessed' bit is sung over the following
descending run:

Am  Am(M7)  Am7  Am6

More later :-)

Cheers, Mike
