As the world falls down
David Bowie – from the Labyrinth

  Bb                             Bbsus2      Bb
There's such a sad love deep in your eyes
A kind of pale jewel – open and closed
Within your eyes
  Cm7              Eb             Bb
I'll place the sky within your eyes

There's such a cool heart heating so fast
This is a new chance – a love that could last
Within your heart
I'll place the moon within your heart

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every fear is gone
  Ebm                         Bb
Wasn't too much fun at all

But I'll be there for you
As the world falls down (for you – falling down - falling in love)

I'll give you moments of gold I'll sing you Valentine evenings
No mere strangers to love – choosing the path 
Between the stars
We'll make our love between the stars


Makes no sense at all
Makes no sense to fall
As the world falls down

This is in no way perfect in text or chords, but I missed it on the page.
Why has no one done this, Underground or Within You? They are from a film with The Muppets, but I still believe that they are among Bowies best songs of that period?

The movie you speak of, is Labyrinth, also starring the young Jenniffer Connley back in 1986. I love this song. The lyrics are off though, a good deal.

Excellent tab, just change the D7 for a Dm, and the F that follow the Bm in "As the pain..." for a Dm, and its done

Yeah those were the days boys.Cords beautifully constructed, potentiality incarnate, romanticism sublime. My absolute favourite I think yet marred by the cold intractibility of REALITY.
