Jogja, Never Ending Love – Katon Bagaskara

A
In the sand
F#m
I can see my footprints left behind
Bm E
Parangtritis’ waves calling in rhyme
A
for the longest time
F#m
life has been a struggle in the past
Bm E
now it’s time to free my soul at last

D
Between waves chasing
Dm7
each other to the shore
C#m
The sound of Gamelan
F#m
enticing even more
Bm E
this calm I’ve been waiting for

Letting myself fly
I see all these people passing by
bicycles just everywhere you go
Smiles so beautiful
friendly faces greeting me so nice
my heart’s found its home in paradise

Watch that lady
dancing gracefully
she brings to life
the legend of Tamansari

D
How softly and sweetly
F
tradition’s calling me

Chorus :
A
Oh please let me stay
Amaj7
time don’t pass away
D
I treasure your beauty
E
day to day
F#m
Here peace I can find
C#m
leave troubles behind
Bm A G
just this city in my mind
A
A place that’s so real
Amaj7
and yet makes me feel
D E
like being in heaven up above
F#m
Pure white as a dove
C#m
a passion deep in my heart
Bm A E
a never ending love

A A – D – A – D – C#m – Bm – E
Jogjakarta
D
Deep within my heart
Dm7
will never be apart
C#m F#m
Javanese romance enchanting like a dance
D
Oh.. so innocently,
F
tradition’s calling me
