Just playing robin hood a little out of phase


And then the nightmares come

And you get blown away

And up in your room your walls are cold

D (continue to strum)
You find your head is holding out

For the welcome of a better day

And then the nightmares come

And you get blown away

And up in your room

Your walls are getting colder

Like youre getting on a roller coaster

You cant find the breaks

Verse 3 (Same chords as above)

Stevie burned the sky when he flew away
And left us things to say
When all the world was falling down
Around our shoulders; cold and grey
Harry carried on in his usual way
And minnie went inside
He came out once and we both cried
And minnie blew my head away

(repeat chorus and chords)


When youre giving everything away

Everybody lets you pay

Youre saving up for a better day

Seeing things in a better way

When you know youve got to live

Theres nothing you wont give

To hear the phone and not let it ring

We laughed and wondered why
We loved the sky and found the space
And gazed out over stevies plane
