Wall Of Silence
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
Hollywood is such a dream,
And when you're only seventeen, it's wonderful,
A movie man said she could be a star,
A beauty queen, or a cover girl,
           A                                  Bm
She believes and packs up her things,
              G         A             Bm
And the wall of silence begins;
Every night was party night,
She was everyone's delight, he let her stay,
And when he'd had enough, he threw her out,
And she found work in a small cafe,
When she called they put her on hold,
And the wall of silence grows;
Instrumental:  G - Bm - A - Bm -Bm - # Fm
Give me a break, Give me a break,
This is Hollywood,
#Fm Bm #Fm
Open the door, Open the door,
Em              G           A
What am I going to do,
                          Bm    #Fm
When the money runs out,
And there isn't any doubt,
      G             A             D G - Dsus4 - G - A
That I'll have nowhere to go.
Hollywood is just a dream,
But when you're only seventeen, it's magical,
She went home to hide away,
She wore her sadness like a veil, and closed the door,
Till the day she smiles and recalls,
              Bm G   A       Bm  - Em - G - A - Bm
And the wall of silence falls...
