* Notes:
  As of September 2005 I cannot find this song's chord/tabs using Google
  or some popular guitar chord websites. So I guess this is the first
  traced chords of Terminal published on the Internet. Enjoy!  ^_^

  To Pinoys out there:
  You can hear this song played at 96.3 WRock FM station.

* Version History:
  - Revision 1: Initial Draft.
  - Revision 2: Added introduction tabs and chord chart.
  - Revision 3: Polishing vs actual audio track.
                Added simple version of the intro.

E                   C#m7               F#m9   -   F#m
I've come back this morning to where I first came alive

G#/D#            G#                 C#m           (C#m - B - A#m/-5)
Here within this terminal where the buses arrive

A#m/-5                  AM7
I was a commuter on the 804

A#m/-5                      B
Worked on a computer on the 19th floor and




E                   C#m7                   F#m9  -   F#m
You came down the aisle of the bus and you sat by my side

G#/D#          G#                      C#m             (C#m - B - A#m/-5)
Shoulder up to shoulder we shared that 9 o'clock ride

A#m/-5                          AM7
Oh my heart was screaming as you left your seat

A#m/-5                         B
Following your movements I was at your feet and




EM7     C#m7              F#m                Gm
Oh down into the terminal both of us smiled

G#m   C#m                  F#m    -    G#m     F#m - B
So we entered the terminal just as she smiled




E                   C#m7             F#m9  -   F#m
Won't you leave out work today - you ask of me then

G#/D#          G#                     C#m               (C#m - B - A#m/-5)
So I phoned in sick on the way to the home of a friend

A#m/-5                    AM7
We were all alone from 10 A.M. till three

A#m/-5                           B
Really thought the fire had gone out of me but




E             C#m7                  F#m9  -   F#m
You awoke the sleep of my life from gray into red

G#/D#          G#                    C#m                 (C#m - B - A#m/-5)
Made the weary wonder of Wall Street rise from the dead

A#m/-5                        AM7
Could have had the fun of my entire life

A#m/-5                        B
But I have to get home to the kids and the wife and




EM7  C#m7                  F#m            Gm
So I left for the terminal where I began

     G#m   C#m                       F#m    -    G#m     F#m - B
Baby no, I wouldn't have left if I'd been half a man




E                 C#m7                   F#m9    -     F#m
So here I am this morning where love had asked for the dance

G#/D#            G#               C#m                 (C#m - B - A#m/-5)
Here within this terminal where I passed on a chance

A#m/-5                               AM7
Lord I'll never find her through I've truly tried

A#m/-5                       B
Probably she's found another bus to ride and




E         C#m7              F#m9   -    F#m
I am now about to begin the last of my days

G#/D#           G#                  C#m            (C#m - B - A#m/-5)
I'm within what others would call a terminal face

A#m/-5                    AM7
I myself can only say it's livin dead

A#m/-5                       B                     EM7
Ridin to the office with the song in my head that  goes




C#m7              F#m          Gm              G#m
La da da da da da da da da da  and you know it grows

C#m               F#m  -   G#m   F#m - B
La da da da da da da da da da

EM7   C#m7              F#m          Gm  G#m
Ohh   La da da da da da da da da da      Ohh

C#m               F#m  -   G#m   F#m - B
La da da da da da da da da da

EM7           C#m7              F#m         Gm
Ohh   La da da da da da da da da da da da   (Fade Out)
