Note: these damned half piano chords, funny baselines and Japanese tunings (...) are making it hard to figure out the chords. We only got half way on this one. But it should help you on yer way though. Hopefully we'll see the light soon to present all the chords

Forbidden colours - David Sylvian

(3/4) [F] [F] [Fmaj7] [Fmaj7] [Em][Em] [Am] [Am7]

The wounds on your hand never seem to heal
I thought all I needed was to believe

(4/4) [Fmaj7] [G] [Am] [Am Am7]

[Fmaj7] Here [G] am I, a lifetime a[Am]way from you [Am7]
[Fmaj7] The blood of [G] Christ or the [Am] beat of my heart [Am7]
[Fmaj7] My [G] love wears for[Am]bidden colours [Am7]
[Fmaj7] My [G] life believes [Am] [Am Am7]

[Dm/G] Senseless years thunder [Am/E] by
Millions are willing to [Dm/G] give their lives for you
Does [Esus4] nothing [E]live on ?

[Fmaj7] Learning to [G] cope with feelings a[Am]roused in me [Am Am7]
[Fmaj7] My hands in the [G] soil, buried in[Am]side myself [Am Am7]
[Fmaj7] My [Em] love wears forbidden colours
My [Em] life believes in you once again

I’ll go walking in circles
While doubting the very ground beneath me
Trying to show unquestioning faith in everything
Here am I, a lifetime away from you ?
The blood of Christ, or a change of heart

My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes in you once again
