Verse 1
In the
B
spirit of David and the cracks in the walls
And the
C#m
schemes that we’re all
B
running
We’re ex
B
posed to the rain coming down from the clouds
And the
G#m7
fire that falls from
E
heaven
B
But our
B
tragedy binds what our ignorance hides
We all
C#m
wind up here to
B
gether
Yeah, our
B
bodies are tired and our souls, they are blind
Bones
G#m7
broken by the
E
weather
B
Chorus
Got a
B
lotta bad days still comin’ our way
But a
C#m
sweet ever
B
after
B
Wind and waves breaking over our walls
But the
G#m7
ship, it don’t
E
shatter
B
The
B
real life lesson ‘bout a life well lived
Is you
C#m
lose what don’t
B
matter
But the
B
sun’s coming up on the stairway to heaven
In the
G#m7
sweet ever
E
after
B
In the
G#m7
sweet ever
E
after
B
Verse 2
Woke
B
up terrified in the middle of the night
To a
C#m
storm, our whole house was
B
shaking
Didn’t
B
know where to hide, the winds howling outside
Sounded
G#m7
like everything was
E
breaking
B
Well, our
B
tears fell like rain, when the morning light came
In the
C#m
wake of that
B
disaster
Brick and
B
stone in streets, shattered glass in our feet
Homes
G#m7
splintered by the
E
weather
B
|G#m7 / E B|
REPEAT CHORUS
Bridge
If we
G#m7
listen,
E
there’s a
B
sound
Be
F#
neath the
G#m7
footprints in
D#m
all
C#m
our towns
F#
We’re
G#m7
connected, like
E
waves of
B
grain
When we
F#
break wide
G#m7
open,
D#m
we’re all the
E
same
When we break
B
open, we’re all the
N.C.
same
