Verse 1:
@ F Am
Tonight will be
@ F Am
the night that we
@ F Am
begin to ease
@ G F
the plugs out of the dam
@ F Am
And we will stand
@ F Am
knee deep in the flow
@ F Am
the undertow
@ G F
will grab our heels and won't let go
@ F Am
And while we hold
@ F Am
our legs quivering
@ F Am
the water rises now
@ G F
to our teeth when we just let go
and [C]sail belly up [G/B]to the [Am]clouds
the rocks scraping our [F]backs
To breath in the air will [G]be
G(hold) @ F
the only thing that we have
Verse 2:
Am @ F @
and all the wasted nights
@ F Am
and empty moments in our lives
@ G F
flushed away as we sway with the rhythm
@ F Am
of the waves
@ F Am
bobbing us up
@ F Am @
Crests fall to troughs we feel
our [G]gills [F]open up
(Repeat Chorus 1 except last line)
the [G]only thing that we [Am]have
and if the [Em]hook sets [F]in
the bottom [G]of our [Am]lungs,
we'll rip it [Em]out and
F G F(hold)
lick the blood off with our tongues
Interlude: F--Am @ F Am
Verse 3:
The despair
@ F Am
can ravage you
@ F Am @ G
if you turn your head around
to look [F]down the path
@ F Am
that's led you here
@ F Am
cause what can you change?
@ F Am
You're a vessel now
@ G F
floating down the waterways
@ F Am
You can take your rudder
@ F Am
and aim your ship
@ F Am @
just don't bother with
the [G]things left [F]in your wake
(Repeat Chorus 1 except last line)
the [G]only thing that we [C]have
Chorus 2:
and your love will [G/B]be warm [Am]nights
with pockets of moon[F]light
spotlighting you as you [G]drift
the actor in this [C]play
Chorus 3:
And you walk a[G/B]cross the s[Am]tage
take a bow, hear the ap[F]plause
and as the curtain [G]falls
just know you did it [C]all
Chorus 4:
the best that [G/B]you knew [Am]how
and you can hear them cheering [F]now
So let a smile out and show your [G]teeth
cause you know you lived it well
Outro: G(hold)-C(hold)
