G5            D5       G5              D5 
   The mascara'd blonde    from the Berliner bar 
G5          D5            G5             D5 
   Rises at twilight, gets dressed in a daze 
C5            G5         C5           G5 
   Black leather crackles    and cold water runs 
C5                    G5          C5     G5 
   As she touches the walls of her memory maze 
 

G5             D5            G5         D5 
   And the shadows of men she has known fill her day 
G5                     D5          G5        D5 
   She's held half the world in her arms so they say 
C5                  G5          C5             G5 
   But she wakes up without them    with a hole in her heart 
C5                     G5                C5          G5 
   And she puts on her clothes, lives her life behind bars 
 

D5  A5  D5  A5  D5  A5  D5  A5 
 
G5            D5       G5              D5 
   The mascara'd blonde    from the Berliner bar 
G5       D5                G5              D5 
   Sighs at the skylight, gets lost in the haze 
C5            G5         C5           G5 
   Black leather crackles    and cold water runs 
C5                    G5          C5     G5 
   As she touches the walls of her memory maze 
 

E5  B5  E5  B5  E5  B5  E5  B5 
 
E5             B5               C5        D5 
   Someone got stranded in no man's land 
E5                B5               C5                 D5 
   Dancing in the spotlight to the sound of clapping hands 
E5        B5                      C5  D5 
   Nobody knows whose side he was on 
E5                      B5               C5    D5 
   It's a risk that you take in no man's land 
E5        B5                  C5      D5 
   Nobody knows what made him decide 
E5            B5             C5          D5 
   To run for freedom and to certain suicide 
E5                        B5                C5         D5 
   When they turn off the guns and his fingers uncurl 
E5                  B5              C5            D5 
   He's clutching a photograph of a Berlin party girl 
 

E5  E5  E5  E5  E5  E5  E5  E5  E5  E5 
 
E5                                E5 
Come in from your checkpoints on your lonely roads 
E5                            E5 
Come in from your ditches in your silent fields 
        E5                 E5 
Where intensified light from a rifle sight 
          E5 
Makes the darkness day 
        E5                  E5  E5  E5  E5 
And the day too bright, too bright 
 

       E5              E5 
And we wake up without you 
   E5              E5 
We wake up without you 
   E5              E5 
We wake up without you 
   E5          E5 
We wake up without you 
 

       G5          D5                  
With a hole in our hearts 
       G5          D5    C5  G5  C5  G5 
With a hole in our hearts 
 

    G5                  D5 
You mad dog shaven head bottle-boy freaks 
   G5                 D5 
In Martens and khaki, drunk on sake 
    C5                       G5 
You stare at yourself in the cruel flush of dawn 
C5                      G5 
Terrified, sunken-eyed, withered and drawn 
    G5                      D5 
The butcher, the baker, the munitions maker 
    G5                 D5 
The over-achiever, the armistice breaker 
    C5                       G5 
The freebase instructor, the lightning conductor 
    C5                      G5 
The psycho, the sailor, the tanker, the tailor 
    G5                       D5 
The black market mailer, the quick and the dead 
    G5                    D5 
The spotlight dancer, the quick and the dead 
    C5                 G5     C5                 G5  G5  D5  G5  D5 
The quick and the dead,    the quick and the dead 
 

   C5                  G5 
We wake up without you 
   C5                  G5 
We wake up without you 
       G5 D5           G5  D5  C5  G5  C5  G5 
With a hole in our hearts 
 

G5  D5  G5  D5  C5  G5  C5  G5  G5  D5  G5  D5 
 
G5               D5    G5                   D5 
   The mascara'd blonde    from the Berliner bar 
Eb5       D5             G5 
Rises at twilight, gets dressed in a daze
