When Im Alone

Chords and lyrics for When Im Alone by The Rifles

Everytime I catch your eye in the streetlight

So when I’m say that I’m just your friend

And I’m willing to try
No I won’t carry on pretending
It’s all a lie

 
Don’t Go…  
Repeat Intro 

Toerag

Chords and lyrics for Toerag by The Rifles

G 
Walk out of the door and make my way up the street
G 
Cold wind in my eyes runs a tear down my cheek
G 
Hit the queue for the bus and then join the line
G 
Same faces for the last ten years of my life
 
Shattered glass on the floor the kids have run out of gam
G 
es
 
G 
And I don’t see that’s ever gonna change
 
G 
One hour passes till I’m back on my feet
G 
A stone’s throw I will be walking till I’m off the street
G 
Turn my back to the clock cause it slows the time
G 
Take out a cigarette and hear the match strike
 
G 
And I don’t see that’s ever gonna change
 
C 
Tell me  
D 
I’m not right say what you l
C 
ike 
 
I
D 
‘m miles away
C 
And expect nothing changing e
D 
xcept for the name of the d
G 
ay.
 
G 
From my place of work I move away in haste
G 
Time there moves slow but rushes when I’m away
G 
I meet up with friends and they knock off at six
G 
I get in at five and walk about for a bit
 
C 
Tell me  
D 
I’m not right say what you l
C 
ike 
 
I
D 
‘m miles away
C 
And expect nothing changing e
D 
xcept for the name of the d
G 
ay.
 
G 
Creep back into bed and I pull up the sheet
G 
High over my head and undercover my feet

Spend Lifetime

Chords and lyrics for Spend Lifetime by The Rifles

 
As I  
G 
walk up her  
Em 
street
 
I lift my  
G 
head up and I  
Em 
face 
 
yer
 
You look  
G 
good and you smell  
Em 
sweet
 
It makes it  
G 
harder to em
Em 
brace 
 
yer
 
If I was  
G 
back in prima
Em 
ry
 
In a  
G 
playground I would  
Em 
chase 
 
yer
 
But Im  
G 
not, Im just  
Em 
me
 
And though you  
G 
might be what I’m  
Em 
looking 
 
for
 
But my  
Bm 
head wont function
Em 
properly
 
And my  
Bm 
feet don’t move in
Em 
time
 
And next  
Bm 
week I’ll forget
Em 
probably
 
But to
Bm 
day you blow my
Em 
mind
 
And as we  
G 
talk I go all  
Em 
red
 
And I’m  
G 
feeling like a  
Em 
school 
 
kid
 
All these  
G 
thoughts that fill my  
Em 
head
 
I bet  
G 
I say something  
Em 
stupid
 
Just play it  
G 
cool, and keep it  
Em 
calm
 
And re
G 
member what you  
Em 
mother 
 
said
 
“Now  
G 
boy, just use your  
Em 
charm”
 
But all that  
G 
good advice gets  
Em 
lost 
 
somewhere
 
Cause my  
Bm 
mouth just won’t work
Em 
right 
 
today
 
Oh my  
Bm 
head is full with
Em 
lines
 
If only  
Bm 
I could find the
Em 
words to say
 
We could

Romeo And Julie

Chords and lyrics for Romeo And Julie by The Rifles

A 
Windy walks and days in bed,  
D 
All our differences unsaid,
A 
Hand in hand we both entwined,  
D 
Underneath the dreary grey sky line,
A 
and all we think about,  
D 
is that something we might
A 
Have more to think about,  
D 
oh and less time to  
D 
decide
D 
But if time is on our side then tell me wh
A 
y
 
We have to  
E 
fall 
 
apa
D 
rt, and go a
E 
round 
 
again
A 
,
 
I don’t know  
E 
where to star
D 
t, because we n
E 
ever 
 
end

We could be

Julie of our

If we could on

A 
Windy walks and days in bed,  
D 
All our differences unsaid,
A 
Hand in hand two hearts collide,

Underneath the dreary grey sky line,

is that something we might

Have more to think about,
