Verse 1
 
In the
B 
spirit of David and the cracks in the walls
 
And the
C#m 
schemes that we’re all
B 
running
 
We’re ex
B 
posed to the rain coming down from the clouds
 
And the
G#m7 
fire that falls from
E 
heaven
B 
 
But our
B 
tragedy binds what our ignorance hides
 
We all
C#m 
wind up here to
B 
gether
 
Yeah, our
B 
bodies are tired and our souls, they are blind
 
Bones
G#m7 
broken by the
E 
weather
B 
 
Chorus
 
Got a
B 
lotta bad days still comin’ our way
 
But a
C#m 
sweet ever
B 
after
B 
Wind and waves breaking over our walls
 
But the
G#m7 
ship, it don’t
E 
shatter
B 
 
The
B 
real life lesson ‘bout a life well lived
 
Is you
C#m 
lose what don’t
B 
matter
 
But the
B 
sun’s coming up on the stairway to heaven
 
In the
G#m7 
sweet ever
E 
after
B 
 
In the
G#m7 
sweet ever
E 
after
B 
 
Verse 2
 
Woke
B 
up terrified in the middle of the night
 
To a
C#m 
storm, our whole house was
B 
shaking
 
Didn’t
B 
know where to hide, the winds howling outside
 
Sounded
G#m7 
like everything was
E 
breaking
B 
 
Well, our
B 
tears fell like rain, when the morning light came
 
In the
C#m 
wake of that
B 
disaster
 
Brick and
B 
stone in streets, shattered glass in our feet
 
Homes
G#m7 
splintered by the
E 
weather
B 
|G#m7 / E B| 
 
REPEAT CHORUS
 
Bridge
 
If we
G#m7 
listen,
E 
there’s a
B 
sound
 
Be
F# 
neath the
G#m7 
footprints in
D#m 
all
C#m 
our towns
F# 
We’re
G#m7 
connected, like
E 
waves of
B 
grain
 
When we
F# 
break wide
G#m7 
open,
D#m 
we’re all the
E 
same
 
When we break
B 
open, we’re all the
N.C. 
same
 
REPEAT CHORUS

G#m7 
sweet ever
