First Reactions After Falling Through the Ice  La Dispute

F [F] Am [Am] Em [Em] C Em
F [F] Am [Am] Em [Em] C Em
I knew [F]it was far too late to
[Am]Walk out on the lake then
[Em]Halfway-to-the-middle thawed
[C]I wasn't doing [Em]all that [F]great
Had I cut my hair short?
[Am] Had I grown my beard out [Em]long?
Had I gone to school or...?
[C] Why do all my [Em]plans fall [Am]through?
[Am] There's a leak in the basement
Stupid permanent estrangement
Casement windows need glazing
Hinges and arms need be replaced
[F] All the way at the edge
I [Am]said, "I think that we should head back.
[Em] What if now the ice cracked?
[C] I think I felt it [Em]bend"
[F] We took opposite steps
[Am] Tried to even the stress
[Em] Picked a safe direction but
You [C]never know the way the [Em]ice thins
[Dm] Half-asleep in dreams where
[C] Ceilings start collapsing
[Am] Free fall through the roof beams
Get startled back awake
Be[Dm]fore you hit the pavement
[C] Floor of the foundation
[Am] Water in the basement
Bodies in the lake
"Don't [F]panic," I could hear you
[Am]Saying as I fell through
[Em] Blackness complete [C]down
Waiting till my [Em]feet touched [F]ground
At the bottom, they finally did
[Am] First reaction was, "This is it"
[Em] Next thought was, "Just stay [C]calm,
Kick up, and [Em]save your [Dm]phone"
[Dm] C Am [Am]
[Dm] 'Cause I wanted to tell you...[F]
[Em] And I thought you should know...
[Dm] Because I thought it might scare you
[F] To see me under the ice
[Am] Make you remember you cared for me
What would you do if I died?
[Dm] Would you fly out for my funeral?
[C] Get too drunk at my wake?
[Am] Would you make a scene, then
[Am] F
Climb in and try to resuscitate me?
[F] Am C Dm
[F]I was on the [Am]ice and
[C]I was under[Dm]water
[F] I was getting pulled out
I was in my wet clothes
[Dm] Stumble on the walk back
[Dm] Am
Someone stoked the fire at camp
I was by the flames
Trying to get my body warm
[Dm] I was standing naked
[Dm] [Dm] 
Checking to see if my phone still worked
I will cut my hair short
Trust me
I [Am]will; I will let my beard go
Trust me
I [C]will; I will never tempt fate
Not once
I [G]swear, I will never trust ice
[G] G7 Am
I will never trust a thing
OUTRO (can also be played as Am the whole time):
[Asus4] Am Asus2 Am
[Asus2] [Am] [Asus2] [Am]  
[Asus4] [Am] [Asus2] [Am]  
[Asus2] [Am] [Am] [Asus2]
