After The Fire guitar chords

After the Fire
Pete version

Transcribed by Jason92078@aol.com

capo on 1st fret

After the fire the fire still burns,
the heart grows older but never ever learns.
The memories smoulder and the soul always yearns,
after the fire the fire still burns.

C                                                                           
   F
I heard a voice asking what happens after the fire
C
And then the sound of a breaking window 
                                   F
And the scream of a tire
C                                                                           
                   F
And then the sound of brixton gun and the scream of a child.
C
The night is hot but nothing's gonna stop
                                  F
This gang running wild.

C
After the fire the fire still burns,
                             F
The heart grows older but never ever learns.
                         C
The memories smoulder and the soul always yearns,
               F
After the fire the fire still burns.

I saw Matt Dillon in black and white
There ain't no color my memories.
He rode his brother's old Harley across the TV
While I was laughing at Dom deLuise.
Now I'm cycling all my video tapes, 
I'm crying and I'm choking.
I've gotta stop drinking, I've gotta stop thinking,
I've gotta stop smoking.

Cause after the fire, the fire still burns,
The heart grows older but never ever learns.
The memories smoulder and the soul always yearns,
After the fire

                      Am
The fire still burns, raging through the pain,
Blackening the promises, the tears and the pain.
                     F
The fire still burns 'till the wind begins to turn
                             Bb
And it all begins again.
C
After the fire, the fire still burns,

After the fire, the fire still burns,
The heart grows older but never ever learns.
The memories smoulder and the soul always yearns,
After the fire
