Lots of interest on this song following the cover version sang by Aizat in Yasmin Ahmad’s new movie ‘Talentime’ – which has just been released in 45 cinemas all over Malaysia. As promised, here are the lyrics.

I wrote most of the music in the ‘Talentime’ – the main compositions of which includes 2 new songs called ‘Just One Boy’ [sang by Aizat] and ‘Angel’ [sang by Atilia]. You’ll soon be hearing Malay versions of these songs over the radio too. I’ll fill up the back story to stuff I have been up to in a few days. But for now, enjoy the lyrics & Chords. 🙂

I Go

G – D/F# – C/add9 – G
So long, fare thee well
Em – G – Am – D
The dancer and the dancing days have taken leave and fell
G – D/F# – C/add9 – G
So turn down this bed of stone
Em – Am – C – D – G – Am – Am/B
Quench me with the deadly nightshade from the rose that you belong

C – G – Am – Am
The long December rain is falling now
C – G – Em – Em
Running down on streets to nowhere
C – G – Am – Am
Music is my life – you’re my sweetest nightingale
Bm7flat5 – E7 – Am – Am/B – C
But I can’t hear it here no more
G – D/F# – C/add9 – C/add9
And I go
G – D/F# – C/add9 – C/add9
I go

Hush now, don’t shake or break
Words have fallen silent like soldiers to the grave
No matter what they do or say
Lay me on the sleepy meadow by the tracks upon your face

CHORD NOTES: My guitar on the recorded version was de-tuned from standard 440 pitch. This means these chords are written in a key higher than the recorded version by roughly one whole step. To get back in tune with the recorded version, just de-tune your guitar one step down [plus or minus a few cents]. Why did I de-tune? Long story. Tricky bugger, that’s me. 🙂
