Song: Broken Hearted

Standard Tuning (EADGBe)

[Verse 1]
B        B/G#       C#m       C#m/A
When the wind blows down this hard
B      B/G#         A         E/A
Many a bond is broken
B        B/G#       C#m       C#m/A
See the water lie on the ground
B      B/G#         A         E/A
From where the heavens opened

[Chorus]
E      Asus2        F#m       B
Lord, how will you get through this night
E/G#   C#m          F#m        B
With your dreams departed?
B        B/G#       C#m       C#m/A
And who alone will comfort you?
B      B/G#         A         E/A
Only the broken hear-art
A    E/A
Hear-art-ed

[Verse 2]
B        B/G#       C#m       C#m/A
So you've gone beyond your means
B      B/G#         A         E/A
Every wound is open
B        B/G#       C#m       C#m/A
Your best laid plans are out of reach
B      B/G#         A         E/A
And all your fears unspoken

[Chorus]
E      Asus2        F#m       B
Lord, how will you get through this night
E/G#   C#m          F#m        B
With your dreams departed?
B        B/G#       C#m       C#m/A
And who alone will comfort you?
B      B/G#         A         E/A
Only the broken hear-art
A    E/A
Hear-art-ed

[Verse 3]
F#     F#/E       B      B/A
Sweet revenge is spoken then
A                      C#m
In the twilight it is gone
F#     F#/E       B      B/A
To living lies with no escape
E/G#                      A    E/A   A  E/A
Lord, I would rather be alone
B        B/G#       C#m       C#m/A
I press my fingers to the wood
B      B/G#         A         E/A
To tell you of my dreaming
B        B/G#       C#m       C#m/A
To sing you songs from olden times
B      B/G#         A         E/A
To keep the love light gleaming

[Bridge]
E      Asus2        F#m       B
'Cause there's a place where we can go
E/G#   C#m          F#m        B
Where we will not be parted
B        B/G#       C#m       C#m/A
And who alone will enter there?
B      B/G#         A         E/A
Only the broken hearted
