You were the Place (Tzuke/Paxman)

INTRO: Gm7 - Abma7 - C - Am7 - Gm7 - Gm7 - Abma7 - C - Am7 - Gm7

Gm7                         Abma7  
   You were the place I had longed to be
      C            Am7          Gm7
You'd captured the sun for your company
Gm7                         Abma7
   Across the mountains you called for me
      C         Am7          Gm7   
I was always so sure of your sympathy

             Ab/Eb bass               Eb/Bb bass
But it's the last time I can call you home
            Ab/Eb bass              C    C/E bass
And on from this time I will stand alone
         Fm7                      Ebma7      Bb/C bass
It's the last time I can call you friend, my friend

Gm7                          Abma7
   Nightrunners watch from another shore
        C            Am7           Gm7 
As they tear at your walls to make room for more
       Gm7                      Abma7
Of the men that took all that I loved you for
       C          Am7      Gm7
Put an end to the hideaway I once saw

             Ab/Eb bass               Eb/Bb bass
But it's the last time I can call you home
            Ab/Eb bass              C    C/E bass
And on from this time I will stand alone
         Fm7                      Ebma7      C/D
It's the last time I can call you friend, my friend

Gm7                           Abma7
   Where is the heart I came miles to find
     C                Am7            Gm7
With friends that you welcomed still in my mind
Gm7                         Abma7
   I hate to leave all that love behind
C               Am7            Gm7
 The years that pass can be so unkind
