UNDER THE WAVES (BPM 125)

by Kittens Slay Dragons

 

You’re too small to make a difference/ Feel too slow to go the distance
C#m
Long ago when you were worth it/ Afterglow where you deserved it
A       E/G#                    A                       B     E
Oh I know the dark confessions/ All alone in silent spaces

 

Waters rise You learn to let go/ With the tide The words all afloat
In your sight, the burnt horizon/ Lost in flight just keep your eyes on
Northern lights and paper letters/ On your side, they change the weather

 

E/G#                  A                 E/G#          A
When you’re eyes are on the ceiling and the lights are low
E/G#                  A                 E/G#          A      B
And the voices keep repeating what you already know
C#m                   A                 E/G#
Under the waves, be still and be safe  
                      A            B          E
Hold on till they break at the shoreline

 

E
Home was home beside an ocean/ One straight road that went unbroken
C#m
Hopes unfold, you lose your footing/ Eyes grow old when you aren’t looking
A       E/G#                   A                        B         E
No one knows the dark confessions/ Only cracks to let the light in

 

When you’re eyes are on the ceiling and the lights are low
And the voices keep repeating what you already know
Under the waves, be still and be safe
Hold on till they break at the shoreline

 

Be still. You’re safe. Your burden is mine.

 

(inst drop out)
When you’re eyes are on the ceiling and the lights are low
And the voices keep repeating what you already know (inst return)
When you’re eyes are on the ceiling and the lights are low
And the voices keep repeating what you already know
Under the waves, be still and be safe
Hold on till they break at the shoreline
