Intro - Acoustic Strumming - Gm Eb X6

         Electric Guitar - strums the chords once through the song.

------------------------------------------------------------
VERSE 1

Gm                  Eb                 Gm                Eb
It seems to me as though I've been upon this stage before
     A#        F          Cm                       Gm       Eb
And juggled away the night for the same old crowd
Gm                     Eb                  Gm                  Eb
These harlequins you see with me, they too have held the floor
    A#          F            Cm                          Gm       Eb
As here once again they strut and they fret their hour
 
------------------------------------------------------------
BRIDGE

A#                 F                Eb       Gm       Cm
I see those half-familiar faces in the second row
F                     Cm                    Dm
Ghost-like with the footlights in their eyes
Eb             Bb        Cm              Bb             F            Gm
But where or when we met like this last time, I just don't know
      Cm                                  F       Dm        (Gm         Eb X4)
It's like a chord that rings and never dies        for infinity
 
------------------------------------------------------------
VERSE 2

Gm                      Eb             Gm                        Eb
And now these figures in the wings with all their restless tunes
     A#        F            Cm                      Gm       Eb
Are waiting around for someone to call their names
Gm                        Eb              Gm                   Eb
They walk the backstage corridors and prowl the dressing rooms
     A#          F           Cm                     Gm       Eb
And vanish to specks of light in the picture-frames
 
------------------------------------------------------------
BRIDGE

A#                  F                  Eb         Gm      Cm
But did they move upon the stage a thousand years ago
F                 Cm         Dm
In some play in Paris or Madrid
Eb          Bb      Cm                 Bb        F            Gm
And was I there among them then, in some travelling show
     Cm                                 F       Dm        (Gm         Eb X4)
And is it all still locked inside my head        for infinity
 
------------------------------------------------------------
VERSE 3

Gm                    Eb             Gm                Eb
And some of you are harmonies to all the notes I play
     A#        F         Cm                       Gm       Eb
Although we may not meet still you know me well
Gm                     Eb                Gm                 Eb
While others talk in secret keys and transpose what I say
     A#        F         Cm                           Gm       Eb
And nothing I do or try can get me through the spell
 
------------------------------------------------------------
BRIDGE

A#                       F                    Eb         Gm        Cm
So one more time we'll dim the lights and ring the curtain up
F                     Cm              Dm
And play again like all the times before
Eb        Bb          Cm               Bb       F          Gm
But far behind the music you can almost hear the sounds
    Cm                                 F         Dm       (Gm         Eb X4)
Of laughter like the waves upon the shores        of infinity
