Guitar 2

VERSE:

(palm mute)

Dm(022xxx)           C5(355xxx)
Warm yourself by the fire, son,

        G5(x577xx)        D5(577xxx)
And the morning will come soon.

Dm                         C5
I’ll tell you stories of a better time,

     G5                  Dm
In a place that we once knew.


(release palm mute)

Dm(022000)                    C(3x003x)
Before we packed our bags and left all this 

  G(xx0230)      Dsus2(x02200)
behind us in the dust,

Dm(022000)                   C(3x003x)
We had a place that we could call home,

      G(xx0230)         Dm(022000)
And a life no one could touch.

Guitar 2

              Dm(022000)
Don’t hold me up now,

               C(3x003x)
I can stand my own ground,

                  G(xx0230)
I don’t need your help now,

                Fsus2(x3x03x)
You wont let me down, down, down!

(Repeat)


VERSE
(same as above)
(palm mute)

Dm                       C5
We are the angry and the desperate,

    G5              D5
The hungry, and the cold,

Dm                       C5
We are the ones who kept quiet,

           G5                Dm
And always did what we were told.


(release palm mute)

Dm                                C
But we’ve been sweating while you slept so calm,

       G                Dsus2
In the safety of your home.

Dm                         C
We’ve been pulling out the nails that hold up

G                 Dm
Everything you’ve known.


REPEAT cHORUS


BRIDGE:
(both guitars)

Dm(x02210)   C(3x003x)                   Dm
So open your eyes child, let’s be on our way.

                   C                     Dm
Broken windows and ashes are guiding the way.

              C                              F/A#(x33010)
Keep quiet no longer, we’ll sing through the day,

                        Dm(022000)                  Fsus2(x3x03x)  C  G
Of the lives that we’ve lost, and the lives we’ve reclaimed.

Go!
