Running Back (The Aerosol Grey Machine)


[Intro:]
D D(2-1,3-0) D D(1-0) D D(2-1,3-0) D  bis

D                                 D(2-1,3-0) D D(1-0) D
I thought I'd give it up for good,

D(2-1,3-0) A                      D          D(2-1,3-0) D D(1-0) D
'cause     none of my actions are understood.

D(2-1,3-0)   Dm
I          thought [that] I'd really leave,
     A                                        D      D(2-1,3-0) D D(1-0) D
and my coming back's something you'd never per_ceive.

D(2-1,3-0)   Dm         D
I          thought I'd make it;

      Dm                   D
Yes, I really thought I'd make it,

                   G   Em      G          Em
but then [up until] you smiled, you didn't  rile me,

       G         D
now I'm running back

 G                D
running, running back.

[same as before]
I saw a vision of a love long deceased
and a chilly wind coming from East.
I know I can say [that] I did my best,
but there were no more warm winds from the West.
Still I thought I'd make it;
Yes, I really thought I'd make it,
but then [up until] you smiled, you didn't rile me,
now I'm running back
running, running back.

[same as before]
I thought you'd never be missed,
and I really believed we'd never share another kiss.
And I thought for the last time [that] I'd touched your hand,
but your love draws me back like [a] quicksand.
Still I thought I'd make it;
Yes, I really thought I'd make it,
but then [up until] you smiled, you didn't rile me,
now I'm running back
running, running back.

       G     Em         D
And now I'm coming yes home.

G    Em     D
I'm coming home.
