CLEOPATRA (ACOUSTIC) chords and lyrics By THE LUMINEERS

  VERSION 1  

Intro:
D

Verse:
D
I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress
                                                A
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
          D
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress
                                     A
With my father in a casket, I had no plans

Break:
D

Pre-chorus:
D                                  G              D
And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet
                                                A
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
      D                           G                D    
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant
                                                      A
Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around

Chorus:
          D        A     G        D     G            D          A
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           D   A             G   D             G        D     A
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

Break:
D

Pre-chorus II:
          D                       G                       D
While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me
                                             A
Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true
     D                     G       D
So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
         G               D                        A
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you

Chorus:
          D        A     G        D     G            D          A
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           D   A             G   D             G        D     A
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

Bridge:
        Bm                 D           G     A     Bm
And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
         D                        Bm            G        A      D
But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part

Break:
D

Pre-chorus II:
      D                G               D
I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters
                                              A
But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind
      D                    G                   D    
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
       G         D
It's a bed and a bathroom
                    A
And a place for the end

Chorus:
            D       A     G        D     G            D          A  
I won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           D   A             G   D             G        D     A
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

End:
A D
