Writing’s on the wall    (video)

 

    Em - G     - Em - G

 

   Em                            G     - Em                                G

1.     I've been here before,          but always hit the floor.

              C                                          B7

    I've spent a lifetime running, and I always get away,

                    C                                              B7

    but with you I'm feeling something that makes me want to stay.

 

  Em                            G   - Em                            G

2.    I'm prepared for this,          I never shoot to miss.

              C                                                B7

    But I feel like a storm is coming if I'm gonna make it through the day,

                         C                                              B7

    then there's no more use in running, this is something I gotta face.

 

Em      G      C   - Em                   G          B7

     If I risk it all,         could you break my fall ?

               Em                       D

How do I live ? How do I breathe ?

                             C                    Bm

When you're not here I'm suffocating.

                      Em                               D

I want to feel love run through my blood,

                 C                              Bm

tell me is this where I give it all up ?

       Am                           Bm - B7

For you I have to risk it a............ll - - -

’cause the writing's on the wall.

 

   Em                                G      - Em                                       G

3.     A million shards of glass          that haunt me from my past,

                  C                                         B7

    as the stars begin to gather and the light begins to fade,

                    C                                                B7

    when all hope begins to shatter, know that I won't be afraid.

 

+  CHORUS

 

                                     Em    - G

+  The writing's on the wall.

                                 C                    Bm

    When you're not here I'm suffocating.
