SLOW MOTION 

Intro: C Bb Gm Bb Gm

Bb                                     Gm
No reply... I'm trying hard to somehow frame a reply 

Bb
Pictures, I've got pictures

And I run them in my head 

             Gm
When I can't sleep at night.

Eb                                     Cm
Looking out at the white world and the moon 

              Gm
I feel a soft exchange taking place, 

Eb                             Cm
Merging with the people on the frames, 

            Gm
Blurring my face, and conversation

C              G
Slow motion...

C              G
Slow motion...

Bb                                Gm
Hush... can you feel the trees so far away 

Bb                                   Gm
Hush... can you feel the breeze of another day

        Eb                           Cm
When we held each other close in the night 

      Gm
As we wheeled away in our own light

         Eb                    Cm
Stepping sideways into our own time 

              Gm
Such a simple way

C              G
Slow motion... 

C              G
Slow motion...

    Gtr solo over Bb G x4

        Eb                           Cm
Then we held each other close in the night 

      Gm
As we wheeled away in our own light

    Eb                           Cm
And some of us found another tide

             Gm
And drifted away

C             G
Slow motion... 

C             G
Slow motion...

    end on C

...and Someone Else's Clothes. The chords presented are the overall harmony of the song, not necessarily what Robin Simon always plays - he has a habit of playing some fairly 'out' chords at times.

A C(add #11)/E is basically a C chord with an added F# played over an E bass, for example:
07557x

The guitar break and ending chord sequence can be played quite nicely as:

E C(add#11)/E B/E
-7---------------------
-9-----7--------4------
-9-----5--------4------
-9-----5--------4------
-7-----7--------7------
-0-----0--------0------

NC=No Chord
