Intro: | Gm | F | Dm7 | Eb | (2 times)

     Gm     F             Dm7           Eb
On a cobweb afternoon in a room full of emptiness
     Gm      F            Dm7            Eb
By a freeway I confess I was lost in the pages
Gm        F              Dm7               Eb
Of a book full of death, reading how we'll die alone
    Gm                   F           Dm7         Eb
And if we're good, we'll lay to rest anywhere we want to go

Gm      Bb      F       Gm
In your house I long to be
Gm      Bb    F     Gm
Room by room patiently
     Eb          Gm     F      Gm
I'll wait for you there like a stone
     Eb          Gm       D
I'll wait for you there, alone

| Gm | F | Dm7 | Eb |

          Gm        F              Dm7              Eb
And on my deathbed, I will pray to the gods and the angels
       Gm       F          Dm7             Eb
Like a pagan to anyone who will take me to heaven
Gm          F         Dm7            Eb
To a place, I recall, I was there so long ago
    Gm                   F                  Dm7              Eb
The sky was bruised, the wine was bled, and there you led me on

Gm      Bb      F       Gm
In your house I long to be
Gm      Bb    F     Gm
Room by room patiently
     Eb          Gm     F      Gm
I'll wait for you there like a stone
     Eb          Gm       D
I'll wait for you there, alone

Solo: | Gm | Bb | F | Gm | (2 times)
      | Eb | Gm | F | Gm |
      | Eb | Gm | D | D |

   Eb    Bb     D               Eb
And on I read until the day was gone
      Ebm      C       D               Gm
And I sat in regret of all the things I've done
    Eb            Bb          D             Eb
For all that I've blessed and all that I've wronged
   Ebm             C            D
In dreams until my death I will wander on

Gm      Bb      F       Gm
In your house I long to be
Gm      Bb    F     Gm
Room by room patiently
     Eb          Gm     F      Gm
I'll wait for you there like a stone
     Eb          Gm       D                 Eb
I'll wait for you there, alone
