CLEOPATRA chords and lyrics By THE LUMINEERS

  VERSION 1  

Intro :
D#

Verse 1 :
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#       D#
With my father in a casket, I had no plans

Verse 2 :
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 :
           G5       D#     G#      D#    G#         D#           A#
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G5    D#          G#   D#    G#         D#          A#  
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

Verse 3 :
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 :
           G5       D#     G#      D#    G#         D#           A#
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G5    D#          G#   D#    G#         D#          A#
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

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

Verse 4}

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 :
           G5       D#     G#      D#    G#         D#           A#
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
           G5    D#          G#   D#    G#         D#          A#
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

Outro :
D#
