The first half of this song is instrumental, so note lengths and other 
embellishments which are featured in the recording cannot be reproduced in 
the form of a chord sheet. Check with sheet music or the recording for 
best results.

For a better sound, use a keyboard synthesizer for organ sounds and other 
instruments featured on the track.


The roses in the window box have tilted to one side.
Everything about this house was born to grow and die.
Oh, it doesn't seem a year ago to this very day.
You said "Sorry honey, if I don't change the pace, - I can't face another day."

And love lies bleeding in my hand.
Oh it kills me to think of you with another man.
I was playing rock and roll and you were just a fan.
But my guitar couldn't hold you so I split the band.
Love lies bleeding in my hands.

I wonder if those changes have left a scar on you.
Like all the burning hoops of fire that you and I passed through.
You're a bluebird on a telegraph line, I hope you're happy now.
If the wind of change comes down your way girl - you'll make it back somehow.
{Repeat Chorus, ad lib Section E - slowly at first, instrumental chorus, more E}
