G                         Em
Grace Cathedral Hill, all wrapped in bones of a setting sun
    C
All dust and stone and moribund
       D                D7
I paid 25 cents to light a little white candle

For a new year's day I sat and watched it burn away
Then turned and weaved through slow decay
We were both a little hungry so we went to get a hot dog

Down the Hyde Street pier, the light was slight and disappeared
The air it stunk of fish and beer
We heard a superman trumpet play the national anthem

C                        G    Em  C
    And the world may be long for you
But he'll never belong to you
C                  Cm
But on a motorbike,   when all the city lights
D                 D7
Blind your eyes tonight
                C
Are you feeling better now
D                  G          Em
   Are you feeling better now
                C           Cm
Are you feeling better now

Some way to greet the year, your eyes all bright and brimmed with tears
The pilgrims, pills and tourists here~Rll
Sing 53 bucks to buy a brand new halo

Sweet on a green-eyed girl, all fiery Irish clip and curl
All brine and piss and vinegar
I pay 25 cents to light a little white candle

And the world may be long for you
But he'll never belong to you
But on a motorbike, when all the city lights
Blind your eyes tonight
Are you feeling better now
Are you feeling better now
Are you feeling better now

G           Em    C     Cm   (x2)   G
La La La La....
