Break Of Day   Tina Dickow



Break Of Day

Lying back to back at 10 to 1
Youre awake, like me
Trying to concieve that done is done
You made a mistake, I see
But Im a little too tired, baby
Its a little too late

To bring it up
In the weary dark of night
Between black and white
Is a thousand shades of gray
Im not giving up but I need a little light
Oh save it for the break of day

Mondays paper scattered on the floor
Lost in time, like me
Nothing that I havent heard before
A simple mind set free
But Im a little too tired, baby
Its a little too late

To bring it up
In the weary dark of night
Between black and white
Is a thousand shades of gray
Im not giving up but I need a little light
Oh save it for the break of day

Youve been a little bit worried lately
Been a little too scared to make me
Take a stand a chance to maybe
Land this kamikaze romance safely
Im just a little too tired, baby
Its a little too late

To bring it up
In the weary dark of night
Between black and white
Is a thousand shades of gray
Im not giving up but I need a little light
Oh save it for the break of day

Bridge (D UUD UUD DU for each below - if one chord is held for two counts in the song,
i wrote the chord twice - therefore, that strumming pattern goes for each one: i.e. strum

004055, and again for same )
