a-ha - Forest For The Trees: chords

Bm       A         F#m
I don’t live in a time
  G         D       Em
Where the truth prevails
  Bm         A       F#m
Things just seem to happen
      G    D       Em
On an escalating scale
       Bm      A     F#m
They play you for a fool
    G      D      Em
To weaken your resolve
  Bm      A      F#m
Drowning you in details
    G        D         Em
To make you miss the whole

Chorus:
 Bm      F#      D      E
Sunbeams and forget-me-nots
 Bm      F#      D       E
Beads of amber, parking lots
  Bm       F#       D     E
From your view you see a lot
  G       D      A
What you really see
 G      A7       Em
Forest for the trees

I don't live in a world
Big on clarity
The way it's coming at us
So relentlessly
Where does one thing end
And the next one start
And where to begin
To keep it all apart

Chorus:
Sunbeams and forget-me-nots
Keys are in the flowerpot
A rider brings his horse to trot
All is lost on me
Forest for the trees
Sunbeams and forget-me-nots
Awoken by a rifle shot
From your view you see a lot
But never the whole piece
Forest for the trees

       Bm     F#      D      E
We’re running out of movie-plots
       Bm       F#     D     E
Your stomach’s tied into a knot
  Bm     F#      D       E
Crackles as the needle drops
      G      D   A
On a somber melody
   G         D   A
A heartbreak elegy
G      D     A
Unsurprisingly
         G      A7       Em
Called ‘Forest for the trees’
