Rise like a phoenix    (video)

 

    Am    - Dm - E

 

  Am                                  - Em

1.    Waking in the rubble,           walking over glass

F                                                  - E

    neighbours say we're trouble,       well, that time has passed.

Am                                   - Em

    Fearing from the mirror,        no, that isn't me,

F                                          - E

    a stranger getting nearer,       who can this person be ?

Dm                      Am                     E      E                    E7

    You wouldn't know me at all today, from the fading light I fly.

 

Dm                          - F

Rise like a phoenix         out of the ashes,

              Am                                - C

seeking rather than vengeance,       retribution.

                   F                              Dm                           C

You were warned once I'm transformed, once I'm reborn,

                        Dm                         - F                          E

you know I will rise like a phoenix,       but you're my flame.

 

     Am                                        - Em

2.        Go about your business,           act as if you're free,

F                                                     E

    no one could have witnessed what you did to me.

Dm                                  Am

    'Cause you wouldn't know me today,

Bb                                 Gm - Bb          E        E                    E7

    and you have got to see          to believe from the fading light I fly.

 

Dm                          - F

Rise like a phoenix         out of the ashes,

              Am                                - C

seeking rather than vengeance,       retribution.

                  F                                E                              A   - Am

You were warned once I'm transformed, once I'm reborn,

                         F    - E                                       - E7

I rise up to the sky,       you threw me down but          I'm gonna fly.
