The flood    (video)

 

       C                                       F

1. Standing, on the edge of forever,

                                Am                                      Em

    at the start of whatever, shouting love at the world.

      C                                    F

    Back then, we were like cavemen,

                               Am                                           Em

    but we met the moon and the stars, then we forgave them.

 

Dm                           - F

    We will meet you        where the lights are,

Am                     - Em

    the defenders          of the faith we are,

       Dm

    where the thunder turns around,

                F                                                   Am

    they'll run so hard we'll tear the ground away.

                     Dm        A                 Dm                  A

    You know no one dies in these love drowned eyes,

                        Dm                 A                                  E                 - E7

    through our love drowned eyes we'll watch you sleep tonight.

 

 F                                    C                                                Am

Although no one understood, we were holding back the flood,

                                          Em

learning how to dance the rain,

 F                                         C                                                     G

we were holding back the flood, they said we'd never dance again.

 

        C                                   F

2. Bleeding, but none of us leaving,

                         Am                                              Em

    watch your mouth, son, or you'll find yourself floating home.

Dm                               - F

    Here we come now         on a dark star,

Am                         - Em

    seeing demons,           not what we are,

    Dm

    tiny minds and eager hands,

           F                                              Am

    will try to strike but now will end today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

                   Dm          A                       Dm            A

    There's progress now where there once was none,

                        Dm             A                                 E                 - E7

    where there once was none, then everything came along.

                                           Em

there was more of them than us, now they'll never dance again.
