Dancing on broken glass    (video)

 

               D                                                     A

1. This place, a palace of light drawn with shade,

                                             Bm     A         G

    of silence and pretence a token of our trade.

              D                                             A

    And here you and I lie wreathed in flames,

                                       Bm       A           G

    all over a life lived by making up new games

     - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    of gazes and whispers.

 

     D                                A

I want you to know I still love you,

             G                                             Bm       A

even though we've been dancing on broken glass.

      D                                                A

Parade all your memories for the moments we shared,

            E         G     - A

never fade away.

     D                                 A

I want you to know I still love you,

              G                                   D - A

when I walk down the memory la.....ne.

                   Bm                                        A

Where the night swears its love to the stars,

                                     E         G

there will be no more tears today, hey, hey.

 

               D                                            A

2. We share a penchant for cyanide praise,

                                            Bm      A        G

    fashioned our armors of empathy's malaise.

            D                                                                        A

    And all of that hurt, and all of those words that we said,

                                                     Bm            A             G

    you'd think we poisoned the ground on which we tread,

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    but the lining is silver.        +  CHORUS

 

             Em

+  The best of intentions will not see the road paved,

            G

    the end of illusions, who could ever be saved.

          A

    What's left behind in the storms that we've braved,

             C                                                            - D

    the troubles we find and the chances we wai.......ved.

 

+  D - A - G - D

 

                 D                                        A

+  We're going where dreams really come true,

                    G                                       D - A

    and we won't be held back by our fea.....rs.

               Bm

    Come hell or high water,

               A                                    E            G

    we'll trust there's a life for us here this way !

never fade away.

I want you to know I still love you,
