City of Roses Sufjan Stevens


[Intro]
B

[Verse 1]
B                E                       F#       E
 A break in the clouds is a break in my day
  F#                 E    B
Face the sun of my salvation
B             E                           F#        E
As Hathaway Jones would have made it his own feet
 F#                         E    B
Fly by the wings of your creation

[Chorus 1]
E                    B               F#
                       On the top of your head, there is a poem
                   G#m                E
The thought in my head, oh God only knows
               B                 F#
As everything else will disappoint you
E               B        F#                  G#m                    E
 I used to be young and bold, but now I'm afraid, I'm getting so old
                 B                   F#
I followed the light to the City of Roses

F# E B

[Verse 2]
B                     E                  F#       E
 It's a little-known fact that I can't cope
F#                    E    B
I'm the champion of repression
B              E                     F#       E
I've had it enough with the east coast
      F#                      E    B
I'll die by the wings of my ambition

[Chorus 2]
E            B                  F#
 The city I left, the city of throes
                 G#m                E
The one that I loved, the city of hope
               B               F#
As everything else will disappoint you
E               B        F#                  G#m                    E
I used to be young and bold, but now I'm of age, I'm getting so old
                 B                   F#
I followed the light to the City of Roses

[Outro]
B                E                       F#       E
A break in the clouds is a break in my day
F#                 E    B
