China – Sparkadia
Capo 1st fret
No real chords are played over the verses (one C note played throughout)but
based on the bass notes in the last verses, you can play these chords over
the verses if you want to do it acoustically)

Intro: C
Verse 1:
         C              G      F
She's as distant as the winter sun,
        C                G         F
More consistent than the beat of a drum
         C               G          Am                 G
All this time she's been hiding her weakness away from me

Verse 2:
         C               G           F
Then one day I touched a nerve by mistake
            C            G           F
Pressed too hard and she started to shake
      C           G          Am                           G
Every time that I go there I know there's so much she can take,
before she breaks

[NC]            C       (G) F                 C         (G) F
She breaks like China,        She breaks like China
(G) C              (G)  F              (G)      C       (G) F
The longer we take, the bigger we break when we find out

Verse 3:
         C                G     F
I keep a close eye on the way I act
     C               G           F
Even when I start to see all the cracks
       C         G         Am                   G
I give nothing away but expect her to stay with me

Verse 4:
         C                   G        F
When she worked out where my weakness lay
        C               G           F
And she wouldn't stop until I gave way
      C             G              Am                          G
Every time that she goes there she knows there's so much I can take,
before I break

[NC]         C       (G) F              C               (G) F
I break like China,        I break like China
(G) C              (G)  F              (G)      C       (G) F
The longer we take, the bigger we break when we find out

Middle 8:
The stronger we act, the longer we crack,
There's only so much we can take till we start to break

Solo:  C    (G) F      C  (G) F    (G) C   (G)   F   Em   Dm

Verse 5:
           C               G       F
We're constructed from the same design
       C                   G            F
With a heart that makes no sense to the mind
       C         G          Am                           G
We can keep it together but pressure and time have their way

Verse 6:
        C                G      F
For the things we try to keep inside
           C              G           F
Find their way out in the dark of the night
       C            G       Am                        G
All it takes is the tiniest touch and there's only so much, before we break

[NC]          C       (G) F               C              (G) F
We break like China,        We break like China
(G) C              (G)  F              (G)      C        (G) F
The longer we take, the bigger we break when we find out
(G) C       (G) F    C      (G) F                C     (G) F    G ~ ~
    China            China         We break like China
