Intro: D  D  A  A

           D                    D    
I turn the music up, I got my records on
           A                       A
I shut the world outside until the lights come on
          D                         D    
Maybe the streets alight, maybe the trees are gone
          A                         A
I feel my heart start beating to my favourite song


            D                        D    
And all the kids they dance, all the kids all night
      A                    A
Until Monday morning feels another life
           Gbm7
I turn the music up

I’m on a roll this time
    D    
And heaven is in sight


Solo -x4-: A  D   

           D                  D    
I turn the music up, I got my records on
          A                       A
From underneath the rubble sing a rebel song
              D               D    
Don’t want to see another generation drop
           A               A
I’d rather be a comma than a full stop


          D                       D    
Maybe I’m in the black, maybe I’m on my knees
          A                      A
Maybe I’m in the gap batween the two trapezes
       Gbm7
But my heart is beating and my pulses start
  D    
Cathedrals in my heart


       D           A             Gbm7   
And we saw oh this light I swear you, emerge blinking into
   D    
To tell me it’s alright
      D      A                     Gbm7
As we soar walls, every siren is a symphony
                 D    
And every tear’s a waterfall
      
   
          A
Is a waterfall
D    
Oh
          A
Is a waterfall
   D    
Oh oh oh
               A
Is a is a waterfall


           E             D    
So you can hurt, hurt me bad
               Gbm7       D    
But still I’ll raise the flag

Oh
D                    D    
It was a wa wa wa wa wa-a-terfall
A              A
A wa wa wa wa wa-aterfall


D    
Every tear
D    
Every tear
A                  A
Every teardrop is a waterfall


D    
Every tear
D    
Every tear
A                  A
Every teardrop is a waterfall

  1. I you don’t know a good way to end it, end it with: Gbm7 E *D
    * = One strum

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
