Lyrics

10. Six Forty Two (D)

 

Ch. 1:  D        Em    C                        G  G/B

Six forty-two, six forty-two

D                     Em    C                        G   G/B    D    D

What can I do? Six forty two---

 

Vs. 1: D                                 Em       C                                             G

Over there in the station see the clock on the wall

Bm                      F#m                                     G                                 G/B                   D

Face full of dust, arms starting to rust nothing’s working at all

D                                             Em       C                                 G

The seconds take hours the hours take days

Bm                      F#m                   G                               D

Time passes by the moments fly upon their way

 

Br. 1: F#m                                                     C#m                           

It says it’s four in the morning           but with the wind in my eye

G                                                D

Time is a lonely siren calling

F#m                                                        C#m  

You’d think it might notice, youd think it might try

G                                 Bm/F#                                     Em       A7

All over the world the hours are fall---ing      at

 

Ch. 2: 

Six forty-two, six forty-two

What can I do? Six forty two---

 

Vs. 2:

How could I have missed it, why didn’t I see

An hour or two, is an hour too few, momentarily

I’m like that old timepiece, heart frozen in place

Can’t make a sound, tears running down all over my face

                       

Br. 2:                        

Somewhere it is morning         somewhere it is night

Someplace the evening bells have spoken

It gave me no warning, just stopped telling time

And now my heart and soul are broken         

 

Ch. 2: 

Six forty-two, six forty-two

The worlds’ gone blue, six forty two---

 

Solo (over verse form)

 

Br. 3:                         

So this is my folly   so this is my plight

I’ve all the time in the world to bear it

So melancholy, so bitter with light

And noone’s time for me to share it

 

Ch. 2

Six forty-two, six forty-two

The worlds’ gone blue, six forty two---

 

Ch. 2: 

That’s when I knew, that we were through

The worlds’ gone blue, six forty two---
