Chord transcription by Mikayel Abazyan mikayelabazyan@yahoo.com


C* = C# + f#
B* = 4 4 4 4 4 4
C#* = C# + f# + d#

    C*              C#           B*
He kept to his own company last night

              C*
lay upon the bed,

             C#         B*        C*     C#
drapes and blinds shut tight.

    C*                 C#
He booked the wake up call,

     C*             C#               B
his cases were all packed up by the door.

                    Gm#
All ready for it, then:

     Dm#        G#   F   C#*
goodbye room 1210.


      C*      C#
He's taken a view

       C*         C#          B
and squandered a few moments here

                       Gm#
but no time's wasted when

     Dm#     Fm    G#
he's in Room 1210.


  C#                               C#
Away from all the brutal noise outside

    B             C#
He paces out the waiting time.

   C#                             C#
Delaying at the threshold of the door

      B                             C#
he's never going to go back to the party.


Instrumental bridge follows, riffs are played...


C#	C#-b	x3

Gm#	Gm#	Bm	C*	C#    C*	C#


A black and white film
dubbed in a language
he can't understand's
been on the TV awhile.
The night rush below,
the sirens outside come and go -
no-one can touch him when
he's in Room 1210.


C*	C#  x2


Time and event disappear
but every wall has ears
and the stories accrue.

 C*        C#             B
Dimly, he notes spinning gears

                     Gm#
he's one among the ghosts

       D#m              G#sus4  D#m
whose lives have been spent     in

 G#m  D#m  G#sus4  G#
Room 1210.


G#m	G#m	Bm	Fm	G#m	Bm	Fm	F#6	Fm	C7


    G#m           G#m+f
A place of safety all his own

     Bm            Fm
now he's not ever going home.

   G#m7
Behind the door

         Fm              C
there's just one favour he implores:

    Fm
do not disturb him

Cm   Fm
any more.
