   Bm                       G
so go ahead and lie to yourself,
                           A
and pretend that you’re a ray of light,
                A
when you’re a broken candle,


Bm                             G
  you’re keeping time with yourself,
                              A
when did it all start moving way too fast,
    A
for you to handle,


        Bm                   G
you’re short on breath but heavy on time,
     A                        Bm      A
you lost the words but you found the rhyme,
      G               A
it’s all just poetry now,


the walls are singing,
Bm    G       A
hallelujah amen,

the walls are singing,
Bm   G       A
hallelujah amen,

Interlude

Bm                   G
it’s so dark in the room,
                       A
and the ceilings are high,

you know the feeling,
                      Bm
you’ve been here before,


Bm                      G
But it’s a broken old pew,
                     A
and it’s an echoing cry,
                      Bm
don’t sell yourself short,
                 G
on breath and heavy on time,
     A                       Bm        A
you lost the words but you found the rhyme,
      G               A
it’s all just poetry now,



the walls are singing,
Bm    G      A
hallelujah amen,

the walls are singing,
Bm    G      A
hallelujah amen,

Interlude: Bm G A

    Bm          G
in time you’ll find,
               A                       A
this life’s a painting and you’re the artist,
    Bm        G
so open your eyes,
                A                  A
it’s never too late to clear your canvas,


     Bm
so paint me jealous,
G
paint me rage,
     A                  Bm    A
for God’s sake paint me anything,
      G
just paint,
              A
your brush awaits,


Bm   G        A
hallelujah amen,

the walls sing you to sleep,
Bm   G        A
hallelujah amen,
                    Bm        G       A
one secret meant to keep you safe tonight,
                   Bm        G       A
I swear that everything will be alright
