On the [E5]28th of [B5]January [A5]198[A5/F#]6 Christa Mc[E5]Auliffe
Gazed in [B5]horror as the O-rings failed,
[A5]And she died, and she died,[A5/F#] and she died.
For the [E5]next agonizing t[B5]wo minutes and [A5]forty-five long [A5/F#]seconds
She called [E5]out the truth on a [B5]broken radio:
[A5]"I'm alive, I'm aliv[A5/F#]e, I'm alive"
It [B5]came as some [B5/A]surprise to re[E]alize that
As she lost [A]everything
The [B5]world was revealed in a [B5/A]transmission so [E]real
That she understood [A]everything:
You're still alive.
(Intro Riff)
You're still alive.
(Intro Riff)
[E5]Four thousand nautical [B5]miles as the crow [A5]flies away
A [A5/F#]home-made ham radi[E5]o in the loft of a Ham[B5]pshire family home
[A5]Came alive, came alive, [A5/F#]came alive.
And so the [E5]four year old amateur [B5]operator [A5]thus became
The [A5/F#]only person to [E5]hear Christa's last des[B5]perate communique:
[A5]"We're alive, we're aliv[A5/F#]e, we're alive"
It [B5]came as some [B5/A]surprise to re[E]alize
That he didn't[A] catch anything
The world was revealed in a transmission so real
That he understood e[A]verything:
You're still alive.
And Christa said:
[E] [Am] [D7/A#] [E] [C#m] [C5] [B] [B/A] [E] [E63] [B5A] [E] [C#m7] [C7] [Bsus4] [B5A]  

Electric Arpeggio

The [E]darkness up above[Am]
Led [D7/A#]me on like un[E]requited lov[C#m]e,
While all the [C5]things I need
Were [B]down here in the [B/A]deep blue sea
At [D]four [E6/3]years [B5/A]old I [E]heard the truth on my [C#m7]radio,
So [C7]now I keep a [Bsus4]moment's silence for [B5/A]my Silent Key.
My silent key x 3
(Intro riff)
