Tom: C
First release 1982 
(C)Down in the street they're all (F)singing and (C)shouting  
Staying (G/B)alive though the (Am)city is (G)dead 
(G/F)Hiding their (C/E)shame behind (G7)hollow (C)laughter 
While (C/E)you are (F)crying (D7/F#)alone on your (G)bed 
(C)Pity Cassandra that (F)no one (C)believed you 
But then (G/B)again you were (Am)lost from the (G)start 
(G/F)Now we must (C/E)suffer and (F/A)sell our (C/G)secrets 
(F6)Bargain, (G)playing (Am)smart, (Dm7)aching (G)in our (C)hearts 
Sorry Cassandra I (G7)misunderstood 
Now the last day is (C)dawning 
Some of us wanted but (G7)none of us could 
Listen to words of (C)warning 
But on the darkest of (E)nights 
Nobody (Am)knew how to (E)fight 
And we were caught in our (Am)sleep 
Sorry Cassandra I (G7)didn't believe 
You really had the (C)power 
I only saw it as (G7)dreams you would weave 
Until the final (C)hour 
So in the morning your ship will be sailing 
Now that your father and sister are gone 
There is no reason for you to linger 
You're grieving deeply but still moving on 
You know the future is casting a shadow 
No one else sees it but you know you're fate 
Packing your bags, being slow and thorough 
Knowing, though you're late, that ship is sure to wait 
I watched the ship leaving harbour at sunrise 
Sails almost slack in the cool morning rain 
She stood on deck, just a tiny figure 
Rigid and restrained, blue eyes filled with pain 
I'm sorry Cassandra 
I'm sorry Cassandra
