Intro: E A

E
 I'm walking fast through the traffic lights
Busy streets and busy lives 
    A
And all we know, is touch and go
E
We are alone with our changing minds
We fall in love 'til it hurts or bleeds
   A
Or fades in time

 
      E                           A
And I never - never -, saw you coming
         E                A
And I'll never, be the same

Interlude: E   A 

E
 You come around and the armor falls
Pierce the room like a cannonball
    A
Now all we know... is don't let go
E 
We are alone just you and me
Up in your room, and our slates are clean
     A
Just twin fire signs, four blue eyes


E
So you were never a saint 
And I've loved in shades of wrong
We learned to live with the pain
Mosaic broken hearts
A
But this love is brave and wild


      E                           A
And I never - never -, saw you coming
         E                A
And I'll never, be the same


                   E - once -
This is a state of grace
                      A 
This is the worthwhile fight
                   Gbm
Love is a ruthless game
  E                A
Unless you play it good and right
                       E
These are the hands of fate
                   A
You're my Achilles heel
                   Gbm
This is the golden age of something 
E                 A - once -
Good and right and real


      E                           A
And I never - never -, saw you coming
         E                A
And I'll never, be the same
  E                           A
I never - never -, saw you coming
         E                A
And I'll never, be the same


                   E - once -
This is a state of grace
                      A 
This is the worthwhile fight
                   Gbm 
Love is a ruthless game
  E                A 
Unless you play it good and right

  1. RED IS THE BEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME

  2. accidentallyjay

    +1 is just fine :)

  3. elliebellie1365

    -4 is best for my lower voice :)

  4. alliecat01

    F#m sounds better where the lyrics is “unless you play it…” and on “good and right and real”(when transposed to -2) but otherwise its great!

  5. Ah thanks so much!! Helps alot, and really good (:
