"Final Straw"

Intro Dm

Dm                        C               Dm
As I raise my head to broadcast my objection
                          C                 Dm
As your latest triumph draws the final straw
                     C           Dm
Who died and lifted you up to perfection?
                       C                Dm
And what silenced me is written into law.

C                                        Dm
I can't believe where circumstance has thrown me
      C              Dm
And I turn my head away
      C                             Dm
If I look I'm not sure that I could face you.
      Am         C           Dm
Not again. not today. not today.

Dm                   C             Dm  
If hatred makes a play on me tomorrow
                              C              Dm 
And forgiveness takes a back seat to revenge
                               C               Dm
There's a hurt down deep that has not been corrected.
                                 C               Dm
There's a voice in me that says you will not win. 

   C                  Dm
And if I ignore the voice inside,
  C                       Dm
Raise a half glass to my home.
 C                     Dm
But it's there that I am most afraid,
            Am           C               Dm
And forgetting doesn't hold. it doesn't hold.

F
Now I don't believe and I never did
      Dm
That two wrongs make a right.
         F
If the world were filled with the likes of you
         Dm                                    F
Then I'm putting up a fight. I'm putting up a fight.
              Dm               Am            C             Dm
Putting up a fight. make it right. make it right. 

      Dm            C                  Dm
Now love cannot be called into question.
                    C                Dm
Forgiveness is the only hope I hold.
                    C                    Dm
And love- love will be my strongest weapon.
                     C          Dm
I do believe that I am not alone.

          C                    Dm
For this fear will not destroy me.
          C                   Dm
And the tears that have been shed
       C                  Dm
It's knowing now where I am weakest
         Am          C            Dm
And the voice in my head. in my head.

        C                  Dm
Then I raise my voice up higher
        C               Dm
And I look you in the eye
       C                    Dm
And I offer love with one condition.
       Am                  C
With conviction, tell me why.
         Dm
Tell me why.
         Am
Tell me why.
               C
Look me in the eye. 
          Dm
Tell me why.
