Broken stones    (video)    (intro)

 

    G - D - C - G

 

                                    G                                      D

1. Like pebbles on a beach, kicked around, displaced by feet,

                               C                                  A       - D

    oh, like broken stones, all trying to get home.

 

                            G                                         D

2. Like a loser’s reach, too slow and short to hit the peaks,

                         C                           G

    so lost and alone, trying to get home.

 

                                C                                          G

As another piece shatters, another little bit gets lost,

                                  Em                         F       - D

and what else really matters, at such a cost ?

 

                            G                                         D

3. Like a loser’s reach, too slow and short to hit the peaks,

                         C                           G

    so lost and alone, trying to get home.

 

+  G - D - C - G

 

                                C                                          G

As another piece shatters, another little bit gets lost,

                                  Em                         F       - D

and what else really matters, at such a cost?

 

+ repeat verses 1 & 2

 

                           C                            G

    Trying to get home, trying to get home,

                         D                             G

    like broken stones, trying to get home.

 

+  G - C - G (3x)
