Night falls----, I'm alone------.
Skin chilled to the bone
You turned and you ran
Slipped right from my hands
Blue on black. Tears on a river.
Push on shove. Don't mean much.
Joker on Jack. Match on a fire.
Cold on ice. A dead man's touch.
D C G
Whisper on a scream. Doesn't mean a thing.
A5 G [n.c.] D C G [back to verse vamp]
Won't bring you back. Blue on black.
INSTRUMENTAL VERSE & CHORUS:
Blind, now I see
Truth, lies, and in between
Wrong can't be undone
Slipped from the tip of your tongue
CHORUS: [recording version has: Chorus - Solo 3x]
