VdGG - My Room (Waiting For Wonderland) (chords)

Transcription by Dagmar Klein

Eb            Bb       Ab     
Searching for diamonds in a sulphur mine

Eb         Bb              Ab
Leaning on props which are rotten

Eb         Bb        Ab
Hoping for anything, praying for a sign

That I am not forgotten.

Eb        Bb           Ab
Lost in a labyrinth of future mystery

Eb         Bb           Ab
Tracing my steps all mistaken

Eb          Bb          Ab
Trusting to everything, praying it can be

That I am not forsaken.   ||: Db Eb :||

  Db          Bbm        Gb   E
I wait by the door, wondering when

         B                A
You will come and keep me warm

Ab Db          B          E
I pray for the end of the night

  Ebm  Dbm B          A     Ab  Db
Hoping the light will still the storm

Which presently entraps me:

         Bb          Ab 
Helpless sea-monster stranded on the shore

  Eb           Bb         Ab
Marooned in an ecstasy of waiting

  Eb              Bb           Ab
I yearn, although knowing that I shall dive no more

In the tide already racing.   ||: Db Eb :||

   Db             Bbm       Gb  E 
My lungs burst to cry "Finally, how

        B                A
Can you leave me here to die?

Ab Db           B             E
I freeze in the chill of this place

        Ebm   Dbm B      A     Ab  Db
With no friendly face to smile goodbye - 

How could you let it happen?"

(Jaxonsax solo on ||: Ebm Bbm Abm :||, then back to ||: Eb Db :||)

Eb                Bb        Ab 
Dreams, hopes and promises, fragments out of time

Eb           Bb               Ab
All of these things have been spoken

Ebm              Bbm        Abm
Still, you don't understand how it feels when I'm 

Abm     Dbm Abm  Dbm Abm Ebm
Waiting for them to be broken.    ||: Dbm Ebm :|| fade out
