    Em
I'm walking,
         D               Em
through streets that are dead

Walking,
D                      Em
walking with you in my head
               D
My feet are so tired
   B           Am     Am7
My brain is so wired
                   Em
And the clouds are weeping

Did I,
hear someone tell a lie
Did I,
hear someone's distant cry
I spoke like a child
You destroyed me with a smile
while i was sleeping

G A                   G A
    I'm sick of love*)
                Em
That I'm in the thick of it
G A                   G A
    This kind of love
       Em
I'm so sick of it

I see,
I see lovers in the meadow
I see,
I see silhouettes in the window
I watch them 'til they're gone
and they leave me hangin' on
to a shadow

I'm sick of love
I hear the clock tick
this kind of love
I'm lovesick

Sometimes
the silence can be like thunder
Sometimes
I wanna take to the road of plunder
Could you ever be true?
I think of you and I wonder

I'm sick of love
I wish I'd never met you
I'm sick of love
I'm tryin' to forget you

Em                      D
Just don't know what to do
C                 B          Em
I'd give anything to be with you

*) from a post to r.m.d. from Patricia Jungwirth: “stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love” – The Song of Solomon, 2:5 (in the absence of jh, I feel it's my duty to point out that the phrase “sick of love” here means “sick with love”. Of course, we all know that “stay” means strengthen, “flagons” were cakes (not wine bottles – they didn't have them!) and “apples” were probably oranges)
