Lilah
D. Henley
Album: I Can't Stand Still


INTRO: D  G  D  G

D                G
Like every young man
           D                       G
I had some things that I wanted to say
D              G
'Ere I could begin
             D
You know the world got in my way


CHORUS:
   A
Oh-Oh, Lilah
   G
To sleep like a baby
   D
To open the window and feel the fair wind
A
Oh Lilah
   G                  D
To sleep like a baby again


INTRO


We spent so much time
Weeping and waiting and shaking our fists
Creating enemies
That really don't exist


CHORUS


BRIDGE:
          Em                      D
All these comings and goings that cut like a knife
      Em                          D
These small simple pleasures that make up a life
  Em                     D
A man needs a home and a child and a wife
   A                G
To always be there, always


INTRO


After I'm gone
There are some things I know I will miss
The taste of your mouth
The smell of the perfume on your wrist


CHORUS 2:
   A
Oh-oh Lilah
    G
The fields like fallow
     D
What'ere ye sow, so shall ye reap
A             G
Oh Lilah, the river's still shallow
        D
But the riverbed is dark and deep


CHORUS 3:
   A
Oh-oh Lilah
    G
The fields like fallow
     D
What'ere ye sow, so shall ye reap
A              G
Oh Lilah, this ground be hallow
   D                G
Is ours to tend but not to keep


INTRO

D             G
Toodle-loo de-loo de-Lilah
D             G
Toodle-loo de-loo de-lay
D                 G
Now while all the streets are silent
D                G
Take my hand and come away


Toodle-loo de-loo de-Lilah
Toodle-loo de-loo de-lay
Toodle-loo de-loo de-Lilah
Toodle-loo de-loo de-lay
