More songs by a-ha

This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

          Am           D7
    We're talking away
    G                C       G/B
    I don't know what I'm to say
         Am         D7
    I'll say it anyway
    G               C      G/B
    Today's another day to find you
 Am          D7
    Shying away
 Em                         C
    I'll be coming for your love, OK?

        G     D/F#  Em   C
        Take  on    me
        G     D/F#  Em   C
        Take  me   on
        G     D/F#  Em   C
        I'll  be    gone
                   G   D/F#   C   D
        In a day or two

    So needless to say
    I'm odds and ends
    I'll be stumbling away
    Slowly learning that life is OK
    Say after me
    It's no better to be safe than sorry

    Oh the things that you say
    Is it life or just to play
    My worries away
    You're all the things I've got to remember
    You're shying away
    I'll be coming for you anyway

        G     D/F#  Em   C
