Intro

Main Riff

Verse 1

I forgot to tell you, I have smart new shoes on
----------------G/B--------G-----------------D-----------
Bought with the money they gave me after the London bombs And I forgot to tell you, I've pulled myself together
------------------G/B-G------------------D-----
Gave next door the TV, stopped trying to belong

Bridge 1

And i forgot to tell you, I have your thick woolen socks on,
------Am---------------------------------------------
So it feels like my feet are still touching your feet Though you're gone, though you're gone

Verse 2

I forgot to tell you, a girl at the office lost her husband
-------------------G/B--G------------------------D------
You met him at the barbecue, I've chipped in for flowers
--------G--------------------Csus2----------
And the waiting, the waiting really hurt her
-------------------G/B-G------------------D-------------------
They put it on the news, but didn't phone her for eleven hours

Bridge 2

------Am--------------------------G-------------------D
And i realised she was looking to me ----Am---------------G--------------------------------D For some king of solidarity
--------Am-------------------------------G------------D
I could read her thoughts, a widow and a widower ----Am--------------------------------G---------------D But i have nothing, I have nothing to offer

Chorus 1

--C---------------------------G-----
Today, today we stop standing around Today we're not standing our ground find ourseves a box to hide in, for the rest of our lives
--C---------------------------Em--
Today, today we start running away And we'll always be running away I forgot to tell you, the whole estate is talking
----G/B---------G-----------------------------D--------
The police came down last night and took some boys away
------------G/B--------G--------------------------
We know our history is better than the liars on TV
-------D---------------------
But we don't know what to say

Bridge 3

--------Am-------------G-----------------------------D
We just hold on to our anger ---Am--------------G---------------------------------D We won't let it evaporate
-----Am-------------------------G--------------------D
Hold on, we won't let our anger fade

Chorus 2

--C---------------------------G-----
Today, today we stop standing around Today we're not standing our ground find ourseves a box to hide in, for the rest of our lives
--C---------------------------Em--
Today, today we start running away And we'll always be running away
