G                          Em         Bbmaj7
This could be the day that we push through
Am       Eb                      Ab           G
It could be the day that all our dreams come true
    Em     Bbmaj7
For me and you
Am        Eb                  Ab     Gb

G                       Em        Bbmaj7
You're too terrified to try your best
Am      Eb                Ab      G
Just to end up with an educated guess
Em       Bbmaj7
Blank success
Am         Eb                     Ab
Like those times you wake up mystified
G                    Em      Bbmaj7
Oh, it feels so real in my sleep
Am    Eb                        Ab      G
Never had something so close up good to me
                        Em         Bbmaj7
We could do any damage, could this be it
Am     Eb                             Ab
Do you really wanna live without this feeling
 
 
CHORUS
 
Gb                    Eb

While I am just sitting here

Well
Em           Bbmaj7
Am I getting closer
Am          Eb
Will I ever get there
Ab           G
Does it even matter
Em          Bbmaj7
Do I really need it
Am              Eb
Wish that I'd remember
Ab             G
Am I really up there?
Em         Bbmaj7
Did I ever want it
Am             Eb
Does it really matter
       Ab         G
It was only yesterday

Didn't even know you

Yes Im Changing

Yes Im Changing Guitar Chords & Lyrics
INTRO
 
C, Csus2, Cadd9, C,  Am, C
 
C             Csus2
I was raging, it was late
Cadd9                       C
In the world my demons cultivate
           Am                        F               C
I felt the strangest emotion but it wasn't hate, for once
 
C               Csus2
Yes I'm changing, yes I'm gone
Cadd9                    C
Yes I'm older, yes I'm moving on
             Am                              F               C
And if you don't think it's a crime you can come along, with me
 
C                 Csus2
Life is moving, can't you see
Cadd9                      C
There's no future left for you and me
      Am                          F
I was holding and I was searching endlessly
    C                   G                      C   Csus2
But baby, now there's nothing left that I can do so
  Cadd9       C
So don't be blue
          Am            F                 C
There is another future waiting there for you
 
C                 Csus2
I saw it different, I must admit
Cadd9                          C
I caught a glimpse, I'm going after it
         Am                              F              C
They say people never change, but that's bullshit, they do
 
C                 Csus2
Yes I'm changing, can't stop it now
Cadd9                                C
And even if I wanted I wouldn't know how
        Am                  F                 C
Another version of myself I think I found, at last
 
C                 Csus2
And I can't always hide away
Cadd9                  C
Curse indulgence and despise the fame
          Am                       F
There's a world out there and it's calling my name
            C            G                      C   F
And it's calling yours, girl it's calling yours too
 
(Alternate between C and F for the rest of the song)
 
It's calling yours too, it's calling yours too, it's calling yours too
It's calling out for you
 
Arise and walk, come through
A world beyond that door is calling out for you
Arise and walk, come through
It's calling out for you
Arise and walk, come through
A world beyond that door is calling out for you

Let It Happen

Let It Happen Guitar Chords & Lyrics
INTRO
A  F#m G#sus4    x4
 
VERSE 1 [0:27]
A             F#m                G#sus4
 It's always around me, all this noise but
A              F#m       G#sus4
 Not nearly as loud as a voice singing
A              F#m          G#sus4
 Let it happen, let it happen (It's gonna feel so good)
A                   F#m          G#sus4
 Just let it happen, let it happen
 
CHORUS [0:56]
D#m       B
 All this running around
C#         F#
 Trying to cover my shadow
D#m       B
 An ocean growing inside
C#           F#
 Now all the others seem shallow
D#m       B
 All this running around
C#       F#
 Bearing down on my shoulders
D#m    B
 I can hear an alarm
C#       C#sus4
 Must be morning
 
POST CHORUS [1:27]
A  F#m G#sus4    x4
 
VERSE 2 [1:44]
A                     F#m                 G#sus4
 I heard about a whirlwind that's coming around
A                     F#m            G#sus4
 It's gonna carry off all that isn't bound, and
A                F#m             G#sus4
 When it happens, when it happens (I'll be holding on)
A                 F#m
 So let it happen, let it happen
 
CHORUS [2:09]
D#m       B
 All this running around
C#       F#
 I can't fight it much longer
D#m          B
 Something's trying to get out
C#        F#
 And it's never been closer
D#m    B
 If my ticker fails
C#       F#
 Make up some other story
D#m       B
 But if I never come back
C#       F#
 Tell my mother I'm sorry

VERSE 1
 
D
Cracks in the pavement underneath my shoe
 
I care less and less about and less about you
G
No one else around to look at me
         D
So I can look at my shadow as much as I please
 
A
All the kicks that I can't compare to
       Ab                       A
Making friends like they're all supposed to

Space around me where my soul can breathe
I've got body that my mind can leave

Feels like my life is ready to blow

Me and my love we'll take it slow
G#m                  F#
I hope she knows that I'll love her long
G#m                  F#
I just don't know where the hell I belong
 
G#m                  F#
How optimism led me astray
G#m                  F#
Two hundred things I took the wrong way
G#m                  F#
But I saw her love gauge running low
