Intro:
 Am F Dm G Am F 
 Empty rooms, childhood's end
             Dm G 
 Forgotten toys upon the bed
              F C 
 Dreams and memories are all around me now
             G F 
 And I can see you everywhere I look

             Am F 
 But moving on is what you must do
             Dm G 
 Find your way, be happy to
                 F C 
 Your world is waiting now and you need never know
                 G C 
 Of all these places that I go

 F E 
 To hear the laughter and dry the tears
     Am Em F 
 Remembering all the years
                        C 
 When you were growing up 
                   G C 
 And every photograph can take me there

 F E 
 We brought you up to be proud and strong
       Am Em F 
 And ready for anything
                      C G 
 Oh little child of mine
                   C F G 
 What life can bring

         Am F 
 Empty rooms when I left home
               Dm G 
 I could not wait to be moving on
                   F C 
 I never thought so much about those left behind
              G C 
 But now I know how it has to be

 F E 
 To hear the laughter and dry the tears
     Am Em F 
 Remembering all the years
                        C 
 When you were growing up 
                   G C 
 And every photograph still takes me there

 F E 
 We brought you up to be proud and strong
     Am Em F 
 In everything that you do
              C G Am F 
 Oh little child of mine I miss you
                  C G C Fm 
 Oh little child of mine I love you
             C 
 I love you

Wall Of Silence chords – Chris De Burgh

From the  Eastern Wind (1980)

Intro:  Bm G Bm 
Hollywood is such a dream,
                                       G 
And when you're only seventeen, it's wonderful,
    Bm 
A movie man said she could be a star,
                       G 
A beauty queen, or a cover girl,
        A F# Bm 
She believes and packs up her things,
          G A Bm 
And the wall of silence begins,

 Bm 
Every night was party night,
                                 G 
She was everyone's delight, he let her stay,
       Bm          
And when he'd had enough, he threw her out,
                           G 
And she found work in a small cafe,
           A F# Bm 
When she called they put her on hold,
          G A Bm 
And the wall of silence grows,

    G A Bm G A Bm G A Bm G A F#m 
Give me a break,
  F#m 
Give me a break,
   G 
This is Hollywood,
 F#m 
Open the door,
 F#m Bm A 
Open the door,
   E G A 
What am I going to do,
                         Bm A 
And when the money runs out,
                      E 
And there isn't any doubt,
            G A D G Dsus4 G A Bm 
That I'll have nowhere to go,

  Bm 
Hollywood is just a dream,
                                       G Bm G 
But when you're only seventeen, it's magical,
   Bm  
She went home to hide away,
                                         G 
She wore her sadness like a veil, and closed the door,
           A F# Bm 
Till the day she smiles and recalls,
          G A Bm G Bm A E G A Bm 
And the wall of silence falls...

Capo 2

Intro:
 C F C F Am 

Verse 1:
 Am E 
 From candles burning, shadows in the night,
 Am E 
 People praying for eternal life,
          Dm 
 But my mind just keeps on wandering,
    Em F 
 Away from this serene and hallowed place,
        C G 
 To a woman's face.

Verse 2:
 Am E 
 She was lovely, lovely as a dream,
 Am E 
 She had the beauty, the beauty of a queen,
                Dm                        
 They say that every man who meets her,
   Em F 
 sooner or later will fall,
        C G 
 Even me that they call.

Chorus:
       C Am 
 The master of invention, the painter of our times,
         Dm G G7 
 I can take you round the Heavens and show you how to fly,
           C Am 
 'Twas a moment caught forever, there was something in her eyes,
         Dm G C F C F 
 But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled.

Verse 3:
 Am E 
 She sat before me, this woman so divine,
 Am E 
 Something eternal was shining in her eyes,
       Dm            
 Oh, Lisa del Giocondo, 
      Em F 
 you opened up a world of mystery,
                 G G7 
 When you were looking at me.

Chorus:
       C Am 
 The master of invention, the painter of our times,
         Dm G G7 
 I can take you round the Heavens and show you how to fly,
           C Am 
 'Twas a moment caught forever, there was something in her eyes,
         Dm G Am 
 But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled.

Bridge:
 Am F Dm G 
 Shame the devil in my heart but I can't stop thinking about her,
        Dm G C  
 And what she's doing to me, doing to me.

Chorus:
 Am Dm G G7 C Am 
 'Twas a moment of perfection, the canvas never lies,
         Dm G C F 
 But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled.
                  C F 
 Why Mona Lisa smiled?
                  C F 
 Why Mona Lisa smiled?
                  C      
 Why Mona Lisa smiled?

 Em D        
 Last night, I saw it there,
   C D Em 
Shining in the dark again,
                         D C 
The light that all men seem to fear,
                 D G D C 
They say that sailors were drowning in the bay,
      Am 
And people kept away,
          F Em 
Waiting for the riches that a wreck would bring,
                   D 
When the morning comes,
      C D Em 
And now the ghost of Blackbeard walks again,
     C D Em 
To haunt the ones who would not hear the pain

  D C D Em 
Help me, 
  D C D Em 
Help me...

            D C D Em 
I took the old path down, down to where the graveyard lay,
               D C 
The place I knew when I was young,
                 D G D C 
They say that Blackbeard had hidden precious stones,
   Am 
Amongst the ancient bones,
       F Em 
So I set off to the darkness down below,
                 D 
By the candle glow,
         C D Em 
T'was then I heard the voices, saw a light,
       C D Em 
And started on the journey of my life...

The chords I wrote here match the song Shine On Beautiful Dreams,
Though they can also be played along the original Power of Ten.


Verse 1:
 F        
 I was looking at a photograph,
                    D Gm 
Taken in a garden long before the war,
                 Bbm 
And out on the lawn, 
           F Am Dm 
There were old men and dogs and little children,
              Gm F C 
All of them gone.. forever

Verse 2:
 F 
 There were people by the waterside,
                              D Gm 
Standing in the same place where I am today,
               Bbm 
Nothing has changed,  
              F Am Dm 
But you know, that time is moving like a river,
                 Gm F C 
It can only be love.. forever

Pre-Chorus:
 Bb C Bb C 
Aaaah Aaaah Ooooh Ooooh

Chorus:
   F C Dm F 
We shine on, brighter than the sun,
  Bb F Gm C 
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone,
   F C Dm F 
We shine on, you and me tonight,
  Bb F 
Way across the universe,
  Gm C F C Bb C 
Burning like a fire in the night

Verse 3:
 F              
 There are those who can never cross,
                      D Gm 
The space between a father and a son,
                Bbm 
When they are young,
        F Am Dm 
We must say all the words that should be spoken,
                  Bb F C 
Before they are lost.. forever

Verse 4:
 F                      
 And I was looking at a photograph,
                      D Gm 
Taken from a window way above the world,
               Bbm 
We've got to learn,
          F Am Dm 
We must leave here a garden for our children,
              Gm F C 
When we are gone.. forever

Pre-Chorus:
 Bb C Bb C 
Aaaah Aaaah Ooooh Ooooh

Chorus:
   F C Dm F 
We shine on, brighter than the sun,
  Bb F Gm C 
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone,
   F C Dm F 
We shine on, you and me tonight,
  Bb F 
Way across the universe,
  Gm C F C Dm F Bb F Gm C 
Burning like a fire in the night

 F C Dm F Bb F Gm C 
 Shine on...
               F C Dm F 
Leave here a garden for the children,
               Bb F Gm C 
Leave here a new world,  Oooh
         Bb C Bb 
In the night, in the night
                 C F 
Burning like a fire in the night...

Chris de Burgh wrote this song a few days after his friend Princess Diana
got killed in august 1997.


Intro:  D D Em          
 Shadows darken and the day is done
 F#m G 
 And I cannot believe 
                                 D     
 It's really true and you have gone
 Em A        
 You were always here beside me

 D Em             
 You gave so much as the Queen of Hearts
 F#m G 
 To those without love
                                  D 
 You were their voice when they could not speak
 Em A 
 A touch for the dying

             D Bm            
 And as we say goodbye I can hardly see
 G D A 
 For the tears in my eyes
 D Bm 
 You are shining like a million suns
                 G A D 
 And there's a new star up in Heaven tonight

 D Em 
 I wonder if you ever knew
 F#m G 
 How much you were loved
                            D 
 And in the darkness of a lonely room
 Em A 
 Were you empty inside?

 D Em 
 And as you fade away, it's like a light
 F#m G 
 Has gone from the world
                              D 
 But I am sure that there is a place
 Em A 
 Where you will burn on forever

             D Bm 
 And as we say goodbye, I can hardly see
 G D A 
 For the tears in my eyes
 D Bm 
 You are shining like a million suns
                 G A D Bm   
 And there's a new star up in Heaven tonight
                 G A D 
 And there's a new star up in Heaven tonight

        F Bb F 
I was walking down that road, to the place that was my home,
          Dm F C 
And the memories of a life go on forever,
             F Bb F 
Here's the village, here's the sea and here's the place where it began,
         Gm7 Am7 Bb F C 
When I found myself in the arms of Lady Madonna,
             Dm Bb F Bb 
And then I listen for those footsteps, coming down the hall,
    C Dm 
A father to his young boy, who was hurting from a fall,
      Bb Dm C Bb 
You must have heard me crying, you must have dried my tears,
           F Dm C 
But you know, I just can't remember, just can't remember,
      Bb F Bb C F Bb 
The son and the father, the son and the father,

          F Bb C 
Now I'm walking with my boy through the place that is our home,
          Dm F C 
And the memories of his life are growing forever,
 Bb F Bb F 
And I'm looking through his eyes at all the wonders of the world,
       Gm7 Am7 Bb F C 
Then hand in hand we will make this journey together,
              Dm Bb F Bb 
And we will talk of men and pirates, and heroes in the dark,
         C Dm 
I will tell him of the hungers and the mysteries of the heart,
            Bb Dm C Bb 
And I will always hear you crying, I will always dry your tears,
         F C Dm C       
And I pray you'll always remember, always forever
      Bb F Bb C F Bb  
The son and the father,  the son and the father,  
      C F Bb Am Bb C F  
The son and the father,          the son and the father...

I might take a walk past your house, for a trip down memory lane,

You may see me at your window, standing in the pouring rain,

Capo 1

Intro:
 C Am7 G C Am7 G 

Verse 1:
              C F G Em 
Some people fall in love in rooms that are so dark,
       Am Em F G 
They can't see where they are going, and they lose their hearts,
       G C E7 Am 
But when I saw your face, it was a light so strong,
     F C G 
And I could see a long night coming on,

Chorus:
         F 
In your eyes, 
         G 
In your eyes,

             C 
And I saw driving down to the river,
  F 
Laughing in the rain,
  C 
Dancing out in the moonlight,
  F G 
Papers in bed,
            C 
And I saw your delights as a lover,
    Am7 Dm 
Until the break of day,
     Dm C 
And oh every time I look,
       F G C Am G C Am G 
It's you and me together in your eyes

Verse 2:
              C F G Em 
Some people say that time changes everything,
       Am Em F G 
With love there's no way of knowing what the world may bring,

 Chris de Burgh - Transmission Ends
From the  Man on the Line (1984)
Comment for any corrections and please rate

This is an beautifull and emotional song written by Chris de Burgh.
I've not seen the right chords yet so i've written these chords for the song.
This song is originally played with a 12-snared guitar.


Intro:  G G C G 
Looking out on a windy sky,
  G C G 
Watching seabirds as they fly,
       F G 
On a summer day, on a summer day.

      G C G 
And now the sun is here to stay,
      G C G 
The winter seems so far away,
         F G 
In the summertime, in the summertime.

  G C G 
Sitting here with my love tonight,
  G C G 
News is breaking from the south,
         F G 
On the radio, on the radio.

   G C G 
Brother lead and sister steel,
       G C G 
Are playing out their final scene,
         F C G 
On the radio, on the radio.

       Em Bm 
And when you lie beside me soft and quiet in the night,
          C G D 
I often listen to the rhythm of your heartbeat giving life.
              Em D C 
You are so precious to me darling, it will always be that way.
            G C 
Until the final act is over,
       G C 
Until every man has spoken,
       G C 
Until every battle's done,
            D 
Until the day,
       Em C Em D Em C Em D 
Transmission ends,       transmission ends...

 Em C Em D Em C Em D G 
Oh....Ah.....Ah....Oh...

  G C G 
Waiting up for a show tonight,
  G C G 
Coming in via satellite,
        F G 
From America, from America.

   G C G 
Whispers from some far-off place,
       G C G 
Are drifting into outer space,
        F C G 
From America, from America.

      Em Bm 
And when I see a shooting star go flashing in the night,
          C G D 
I often wonder if some other beings also see the light.
               Em D C 
And are they picking up our signals, as they spin of into space.
            G C 
Until the final act is over,
       G C 
Until every man has spoken,
       G C 
Until every summer's gone,
       G C 
Until every battle's done,
            D 
Until the day,
       Em C Em D Em C Em D 
Transmission ends,       transmission ends...

   C D 
Oooh don't let it happen, 
   C D D7 
Oooh don't let it happen, no, no, darling.

     Em D C 
I'm always going to love you,
          Em D C 
Yes, I'm always going to love you,
          Em D</spa

Oh my brave hearts, we must leave this land tomorrow.

We can't live here anymore.

To take away our land, they take it from our sons, swear it on my hands.

Chorus:
            C G 
We will return to run here like the wolf,

We will return to touch the open sky,

Its Such A Long Way Home chords – Chris De Burgh

 Chris de Burgh - It's Such A Long Way Home
From his  Crusader (1979) and Home (2012)
Comment for any corrections and please rate

The chords I wrote here are for the acoustic version of 
It's Such A Long Way Home of the album Home, 
Though you can also play them along with the original.

Intro:  D Em D Em A 

Verse 1:
  D Em 
Sitting by the window of this broken-down hotel,
   D Em 
Trying to write a letter just to show you that I'm well,
                D Em 
But I've been watching all the people as they cross the marketplace,
       D Em 
And though there really is no reason, I've been looking for your face.

Chorus:      
              D Bm Em A 
It's such a long way        home,
              D Bm Em A 
It's such a long way        home,
              D Bm Em A 
It's such a long way...

Verse 2:
   D Em 
Standing by the aeroplane she held me in her arms,
                D Em 
And then she whispered "oh dear lord don't let him come to any harm"
            D Em 
And as we turned to fly away I saw her standing on her own,
                D Em 
It seemed her hand was waving not goodbye but "please come home".

Chorus:
              D Bm Em A 
It's such a long way        home,
              D Bm Em A 
It's such a long way        home,
              D Bm Em A 
It's such a long way...

Bridge:
     G F#m 
Oh so many people have to travel away,
          Em D 
From the ones that they love and they need,
     G F#m 
But I want to tell you that all your life,
      Em A 
You can depend on me.

Verse 3:
  D Em 
Far away a saxophone lingers on a tune,
               D Em 
And it's the kind of song that someone wrote for lovers and a moon,
             D Em 
And as the band begins to play it, with a shock I realize,
              D Em 
That it's a song we sang together and it nearly makes me cry.

Chorus:
              D Bm Em A 
It's such a long way         home,
              D Bm Em A 
It's such a long way         home,
              D Bm Em A G D 
It's such a long way         such a long way home.

4 years later in 1991 he was the centre stage of the global event 
"The Simple Truth Campaign" at the Wembley Arena in London which was raising money 
for the Kurdish refugees.


Capo 3

Verse 1:
             D G D 
A child is born on a battlefield,
            F#m G A 
A soldier boy falls to his knees,
               G F#m 
And a woman cries in joy and pain,
               A G D 
When will we live in peace again?

Verse 2:
             D G D 
A child is born where the wild wind blows,
               F#m G A 
In a country torn from the south to the north,
               G F#m 
And a family runs from day to day,
               A G Bm 
When will we see our home again?

Chorus:
               G F# 
When will we see the simple truth,
            Bm G 
The only thing that's worth a damn,
                 Em7 D A 
The life of a child is more than a forest,
                 Em7 D A 
The life of a child is more than a border, 
             Bm G Em7 D A 
Could ever be.

Verse 3:
             D G D 
A child is born in the desert sun,
         F#m G A 
A tiny life has just begun,
                G F#m 
And a mother cries for her hungry babe,
              A G D 
When will I feed my boy again?

Verse 4:
             D G D 
A child is born to an ordinary home,
          F#m G A 
East or west, it could be anyone,
                      G F#m 
But we all want to know, will my child survive to see the day,
          A G Bm 
When we will be secure again?

Chorus: 
               G F# 
When will we see the simple truth,
                 Bm G 
That the only thing that's worth a damn,
                 Em7 D A 
The life of a child is more than a forest, 
                 Em7 D A 
The life of a child is more than a border,
                 Em7 D A  
The life of a child is more than religion, 
                 Em7 D A Bm    
The life of a child is only a heartbeat from eternity,
            G Em7 D A 
We must believe, for the sake of humanity,
            G Em7 D A Bm G Em7 D A Bm G 
We must believe!!!
          Em7 D A Bm G Em7 D A G 
For the sake of humanity, we must believe.
