[Verse]

                    C                    F
She fell down the stairs and opened her eyes 
               C
He’s over the edge this time
      C                      F
He’s all wound up from the nightmares
      C                 G
They make him lose his mind
         F        Am  G
She’s distracted, 
F                      C   G     F 
lost the sense of the urgency tonight, 
                  Am   G      C
lost sense of the urgency tonight

[Verse]

                 C                     G
For a couple of years she covered her eyes
                    C
And she’d give him hell sometimes
     C                  F            C                G
The makeup covered the bruises, but somehow made her blind
            F      Am  G
She got distracted, 
F                      C   G      F
lost the sense of the urgency in life, 
                  Am   G      C
lost sense of the urgency in life
                 Am                      G
Can she save herself, save her from the nightmare, 
                   F         G      C
save her from the nightmare he’s become

[Verse]

                   C
She looks up the stairs, slips out the door
N.C.
The floor creaks so loud at night
     C
The keys fumbling in the ignition
N.C. 
This ride could turn the tide
               F      Am  G
While he’s distracted 
F              C      G          F
she finds the urgent need to survive, 
               Am     G          C
she finds the urgent need to survive
                 Am                      G
Can she save herself, save her from the nightmare, 
                   F         G      C
save her from the nightmare he’s become
               Am                   G
She’s holding here, it’s tiring pretending
                       F       G           Am  F  C  G
She’s tired from just waiting for it to end

[Bridge]

Am                  
She’s been hanging round 
F                   C                  G
on this side of town missing opportunities
Am                        F                   C                       G
She wants to brace herself just enough to sing a little louder every day, yeah

[Interlude]

Am F C G 

Am F 

C                          G
....A little louder every day

[Verse]

                  C                       F
She runs up the stairs and it floods her eyes
                   C
She’s smiling for real this time
    C                   F                C                    G
No makeup to cover the bruises, no more running through life blind
              F         Am  G
She just got distracted, 
F                      C             G             F
but she’s finding the will and the strength to survive, 
                  Am             G             C
she’s finding the will and the strength to survive
                     Am                    G
And it saves her from, saves her from the nightmare, 
                    F         G          C 
saves her from the nightmare he’s become
                   Am
She’s holding here, 
                   G
she’s tired of pretending
               F       G           C
Tired of just waiting for it to end
