Every teardrop is a waterfall    (video)

 

    C - G (2x)

 

                      C

1. I turn the music up, I got my records on,

                      G

    I shut the world outside until the lights come on.

                           C

    Maybe the streets alight, maybe the trees are gone

                     G

    I feel my heart start beating to my favourite song.

 

                       C

    And all the kids they dance, all the kids all night,

              G

    until Monday morning feels another life.

                     Em

    I turn the music up, I'm on a roll this time,

             C

    and heaven is in sight.                + G - C (2x)

 

                      C

2. I turn the music up, I got my records on,

                        G

    from underneath a rubble, I sing a rebel song.

                           C

    Don't want to see another generation drop,

                    G

    I'd rather be a comma than a full stop.

 

                     C

    Maybe I'm in the black, maybe I'm on my knees,

                      G

    maybe I'm in the gap between the two trapezes,

                  Em

    but my heart is beating and my pulses start,

          C

    cathedrals in my heart.

 

                   C                    G                  Em

    And we sa…w, oh, this light, I swear you, emerge blinking into

         C

    to tell me it's alright.

 

 

 

 

 

 

                 C             - G                             Em

    As we soa…r wa….lls, every siren is a symphony,

                                    C

    and every tear's a waterfall,

                    G    C                   G               C

    is a waterfall, oh, is a waterfall, oh, oh, oh,

                     G              C                   G               C

    is a waterfall, every tear is a waterfall, oh, oh, oh.

                         D                   C                     Em - C          G

    So you can hurt, hurt me bad, but still I rai…….se the flag.

 

+  G - C (2x)

 

                     G - C                 G - C

+  It was a wa……terfall, a wa……terfall.

 

                                 C      G

+  C - G (2x)     +  Oho, oho, a waterfall. (2x)

 

C                                      - G

    Every tear, every tear,       every teardrop is a waterfall. (2x)
