    C - F - C - F

 

             C         F                      C      - F

1. Just right before the end of time,

            Am       F                     C    - F

    we stood together, you and I.

                       C               F                      C

    There was no place to go, no time to add.

                Am          G                       C

    so we brace ourselves for the impact.

 

                         F               C                 Am          C

Oh, when the waves crushing, so cruel to your skin

                   F        C                    G

and you're lost, shaking off the weight.

                   F                   C                  Am        C

When the sea breaks through, try to swallow you,

                 F     G                         C

you wake up, learn to breathe again.

 

            C           F                  C     - F

2. We cried for every fading light,

                Am             F                          C       - F

    all the good days flashed before our eyes,

                C         F                             C

    It's so hard to leave something behind.

                       Am           G                       C

    when your heart still wants to hold so tight.

 

                         F               C                 Am          C

Oh, when the waves crushing, so cruel to your skin

                   F        C                    G

and you're lost, shaking off the weight.

              F               C                  Am          C 

When it all breaks you, and you hallow through.

                 F     G                         C

you wake up, learn to breathe again.
