No Chord
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

G8 > G10 > G8  D6  D8

           C#                                 F#
I heard a voice asking what happens after the fire
             C#                                             F#
And then the sound of a breaking window and the scream of a tyre
             C#                                          F#
And then the sound of a distant gun and the cry of a hungry child
             C#
the night is hot

But nothing's gonna stop
     F#
This gang going wild


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


C#
I saw Matt Dillon in black and white
                         F#
there ain't no colour in memories
            C#
He rode his brother's Harley
                                          F#
across the TV while I was laughing at Dom deLuise
        C#                                                F#
Now I'm cycling all my video tapes and I'm crying and I'm joking
                C#
I've gotta stop drinking

I've gotta stop thinking
                F#
I've gotta stop smoking


          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
               A#
The fire still burns, raging through the pain

Blackening the promises the tears and the rain
               F#
The fire still burns

'Til the wind begins to turn
                  B
And it all begins again


Chorus: Repeat 2x and fade
