Elevation Guitar Chords & Lyrics
[Intro]
E-A (7x)
B-A
 
 
 B   A                E                          B
High, higher than the sun, you shoot me from a gun
  A            E            B
I need you to elevate me here
      A                E                           B
At the corner of your lips, as the order of your hips
  A
Eclipse
    E             B
You elevate my soul
     A              E                           B
I've got no self-control, been living like a mole
      A         E
Now going down excavation
 B       A       E                               B      A
I and I in the sky, you make me feel like I can fly so high
 E
Elevation
 
E-A (3x)
 
 B  A
Elevation
 
(do C.p. B-A-E)
A star lit up like a cigar
Strung out like a guitar
Maybe you can educate my mind
Explain all these controls
Can't sing but I've got soul
The goal is elevation
 
(do C.p. B-A-E)
A mole digging in a hole 
Digging up my soul now going down excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation
 
E-A (7x)
 
B  A       E
Elevation
 
Love, lift me up out of these blues
Won't you tell me something true
I believe in you
 
(do C.p. B-A-E)
A mole digging in a hole 
Digging up my soul now going down excavation
I and I in the sky
You make me feel like I can fly
So high
Elevation
 
 
[Adlib]

Verse Chord Progression, Am, Am, F, F, C, C/B, E, E, D, D
Chorus Chord Progression, F, C, F, C, Am, G, F, F
	
Am				     F
I tied myself with wire
F					 C
To let the horses roam free
C/B	
Playing with the fire
		 E                E      D   D   Am
Until the fire played with me
 
Am					F
The stone was semi-precious
F 				    C
We were barely conscious
	C/B
Two souls too smart to be
	    E
In the realm of certainty
E             D              D          Am
Even on our wedding day
 
   Am			   F
We set ourselves on fire
    F                 C
Oh God, do not deny her
     C/B
It’s not if I believe in love
    E				E
If love believes in me
	   D           D
Oh, believe in me
 
	    F          C
At the moment of surrender
    F            C
I folded to my knees
  Am                    G
I did not notice the passers-by
          F              F    Am
And they did not notice me
 
Am 				         F
I’ve been in every black hole
	     F			     C
At the altar of the dark star
   C/B
My body’s now a begging bowl
        E  				E
That’s begging to get back, begging to get back
	  D    D
To my heart
				 Am   Am
To the rhythm of my soul
				  F 				F
To the rhythm of my unconsciousness
				 C
To the rhythm that yearns
C/B			    E          E
To be released from control
 
        F               C             F     C
I was punching in the numbers at the ATM machine
        Am             G
I could see in the reflection
      F                F
A face staring back at me
        F            C
At the moment of surrender
     F 			C
Of vision over visibility
  Am                    G
I did not notice the passers-by
         F                F
And they did not notice me
 
        F               C
I was speeding on the subway
	           F	          C
Through the stations of the cross
       Am                 G
Every eye looking every other way
           F                             F
Counting down ’til the train would stop

[Verse 1]
 
       C
I have climbed highest mountains
 
I have run through the fields
        Fsus2                C
only to be with you, only to be with you
       C
I have run, I have crawled
                                           Fsus2
I have scaled these city walls, these city walls

only to be with you

       C
I have kissed honey lips
 
Felt the healing in her fingertips
               Fsus2                C
It burned like fire, this burning desire
       C
I have spoke with the tongue of angels
 
I have held the hand of the devil
                   Fsus2                  C
It was warm in the night, I was cold as a stone
 
 
[Chorus 2]
 
      G             Fsus2          C
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the kingdom come
 
then all the colours they will
                           Fsus2
bleed into one, bleed into one
                  C
But yes I'm still running
              C
You broke the bonds and you loosed the chains
                                         Fsus2
carried the cross of, of my shame, of my shame
             C
You know I believe it

  Have you come to raise the dead
Am                            D

 Did I ask too much
Am
  More than a lot
F
 You gave me nothing
        C
Now it's all I got
C                      Am
  We're one, but we're not the same

Well we, hurt each other, then we do it again

        C                   Am
You say, love is a temple, love's a higher law
 C                 Am
Love is a temple, love's a higher law
    C                    G
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
    G                   F
And I can't be holding on
               F                      C
To what you got, when all you got is hurt
 
 
[Chorus]
 
(C)     Am
One love, One blood
F                      C
  One life, you got to do what you should
C         Am
  One life, with each other
F         C
  Sisters, brothers
C                    Am
  One life, but we're not the same
         F                     C
We get to carry each other, carry each other
 C     Am     F     C
One,         One

[Intro]
|Dm |Dm |Bb |Gm |
 
[Verse 1]
Dm     Bb                         Gm
Lemon, see-through in the sunlight
          Dm    Bb                   Gm
She wore lemon, never in the daylight
                     Dm
She's gonna make you cry
                      Bb             Gm
She's gonna make you whisper and moan
            Dm                  Bb           Gm
When you're dry she draws water from a stone
 
[Pre-Chorus 1]
C               Gm              Bb
I feel like I'm slowly, slowly, slowly slippin' under
C               Gm            Bb
I feel like I'm holding on to nothing
 
[Verse 2]
         Dm
She wore lemon
   Bb                      Gm
To colour in the cold grey night
        Dm
She had heaven
                Bb       Gm
And she held on so tight
 
[Verse 3]
Dm
A man makes a picture
Bb          Gm
A moving picture
Dm
Through the light projected
           Bb             Gm
He can see himself up close
Dm
A man captures colour
Bb                  Gm
A man likes to stare
Dm
He turns his money into light
        Bb      Gm
To look for her
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
C                   Gm                  Bb
And I feel like I'm drifting, drifting, drifting from the shore
C                   Gm              Bb
And I feel like I'm swimming out to her
 
[Chorus]
F  C  Bb
Ohhhhhh
F       C             Bb
Midnight is where the day begins
F       C
Midnight is where the day begins
F       C             Dm    Bb  Gm
Midnight is where the day
Dm     Bb                         Gm
Lemon, see-through in the sunlight
 
[Verse 3]
Dm
A man builds a city
Bb                   Gm
With banks and cathedrals
Dm
A man melts the sand
              Bb               Gm
So he can see the world outside  (You're gonna meet her there)
Dm
A man makes a car (She's your destination)
Bb                       Gm
And builds a road to run them on (You gotta get to her)
Dm
A man dreams of leaving (She's imagination)
         Bb            Gm
But he always stays behind
 
[Pre-Chorus 3]
C                                Gm            Bb
And these are the days when our work has come asunder
C                               Gm                  Bb
And these are the days when we look for something other
 
[Chorus]
F       C             Bb
Midnight is where the day begins
F       C             Bb
Midnight is where the day begins
F       C             Bb
Midnight is where the day begins

Midnight is where the day begins

A man makes a picture

Oh, baby child...

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky 
It's no secret that our world is in darkness tonight
             A                D
They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon 
            E
You know I don't see you when she walks in the room 
 
E
It's no secret that a friend is someone who lets you help 
It's no secret that a liar won't believe anyone else
           A                       D
They say a secret is something you tell one other person 
   E
So I'm telling you, child

A                 E
It's no secret at all

It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest 
It's no secret ambition bites the nails of success
      A                           D
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief 
    E
All kill their inspiration and sing about their grief

Love...we shine like a Burning star We're falling from the

Stay Faraway So Close

Stay Faraway So Close Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Capo: 1st fret

[Intro]
D    E7    G    D
 
[Verse 1]
      D             E7
Green light, Seven-Eleven
         G        D
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
          D                 E7
You don't smoke, don't even want to
G                  D
Hey now check your change
        D         E7
Dressed up like a car crash
     G                             D
Your wheels are turnin' but you're upside down
Em                                   D
 You say when he hits you, you don't mind
Em                                   D
 Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
E7     G               D
Oh, is that what it is?
 
 
[Verse 2]
    D            E7
Red lights, grey morning
    G                D
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
  D            E7
A vampire or a victim?
     G                    D
It depends on who's around
            D                    E7
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
          G                D
You could lip-synch to the talk shows
Em
 And if you look, you look through me
F#m
 And when you talk, you talk at me
G                                A
 And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing
 
[Chorus]
           Em                                 D
If I could stay then the night would give you up
Em                               D
Stay and the day would keep it's trust
Em                           D
Stay and the night would be enough
 
[Verse 3]
    D       E7
Faraway, so close
            G              D
Up with the static and the radio
         D        E7
With satelite television
        G       D
you can anywhere
  D          E7     G               D
Miami, New Orleans, London, Belfast and Berlin
 
[Bridge]
Em
 And if you listen I can't call
F#m                              G
 And if you jump you just might fall
                           A
And if you shout I'll only hear you
 
[Chorus]
           Em                                 D
If I could stay then the night would give you up
Em                                D
Stay then the day would keep it's trust
Em
Stay with the demons you drowned
F#m
Stay with the spirits I found
G                            D
Stay and the night would be enough
 
[Solo]
     D        E7       G        D
Wo-o-oo-oo-oo-oo, Wo-o-oo-oo-oo-oo
     D        E7       G        D
Wo-o-oo-oo-oo-oo, Wo-o-oo-oo-oo-oo
 
[Verse 4]
    D            E7
3 o'clock in the morning
     G                 D
It's quiet and there's no-one around
         D            E7
Just the bang and the clatter
      G              D
As an angel runs to ground
         D            E7
Just the bang and the clatter
      G                    D
As an angel hits the ground

Running To Stand Still

Running To Stand Still Guitar Chords & Lyrics
D and G to start with some slide guitar and piano
 
 
[Verse 1]
D                            G
So she woke up, woke up from where she was, lyin' still
      D                                         G
Said "I, I gotta do somethin' about where we're goin'"
D
  Stepped on steam train
G
  Stepped out of the driving rain, maybe
D                               G
  Run from the darkness, in the night.
 
 
[Chorus]
Singing
A
Ah,
         C/G   G
Ah-la-la-la-de-day
A        C/G   G
Ah-la-la-la-de-day
      D              G
Ah-la-la-de-day
 
 
[Verse 2]
D                         G
Sweet the sin, bitter the taste in my mouth
D                                G
  I see seven towers, but I only see one way out
          D
You gotta cry without weeping, talk without speaking
G
scream without raising your voice
                    D
You know I took the poison
                               G
From the poison stream, then I floated, out of here
 
 
[Chorus 2]
Singing
A
Ah,
         C/G   G
Ah-la-la-la-de-day
A        C/G   G
Ah-la-la-la-de-day
      D
Ah-la-la-de-day
 
 
[Interlude/Bridge]
D                      G
Oooooooooooo,  Ooo Ooo Ooo  Oooooo
D                      G
Oooooooooooo,  Ooo Ooo Ooo  Oooooo
 
 
[Verse 3]
D
She runs through the streets with eyes painted red
G
Under a black belly of clouds in the rain
D
in through a doorway, she brings me
G
white gold and pearls stolen from the sea
       D                           G
she is raging she is raging and storm blows up in her eyes
 
 
[Ending Chorus]
She will,
A          C/G    G        A
suffer the needle chill,
                 C/G  G   D
She's running to stand,   still.
 
(Harmonica Riff played over D and G chord progression to end song)

through the sleet and driving snow
                 G6                D2
 
across the fields of mourning to a
           G6

And you hunger for the time

the city walls are all come down
the dust a smoke screen all around to see
faces ploughed like fields that once
gave no resistance
 
And we live by the side of the road
on the side of a hill as the valleys explode
dislocated, suffocated
the land grows weary of it's own
 
O come away, o come away, o come, o come away I say I  hmm hmm

The wind will crack in wintertime
                   G6
 
this bomb-blast lightning waltz
D2              G6
 
no spoken words, just a scream . . . yeah.... oh........ oh.....

Haven't seen you in quite a while

I was down the hold, just passing time

Last time we met was a low-lit room

We were as close together as bride and groom
Dsus2               Aadd9
We ate the food, we drank the wine
Em                      D/G
Everybody having a good time

Except you

You led me on with those innocent eyes
    Em
You know I love the element of surprise
Dsus2                  Aadd9
In the garden I was playing the tart
  Em                   D/G
I kissed your lips and broke your heart

You, you were acting like it was the end of the world

G         D                 Em
 See the stone set in your eyes         
         C                   G
See the thorn twist in your side
          D       Em    C
And I'll wait for you
G            D                Em
 Sleight of hand and twist of fate
             C                   G
On a bed of nails, she makes me wait
          D        Em      C
And I'll wait, without you

With or without you, with or without you

 my body bruised, she's got me with

nothing to win, and nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away

Every Breaking Wave

Every Breaking Wave Guitar Chords & Lyrics
| A | C#m | E | B |
| A | C#m | E | B | B |
 
 
                A            C#m
Every breaking wave on the shore
           E                        B
tells the next one there’ll be one more.
                    A            C#m
And every gambler knows that to lose
     E                       B
is what you’re really there for.
              A            C#m
Summer I was fearlessness,
        E                    B
now I speak into an answer phone.
                  A             C#m
Like every falling leaf on the breeze,
 E                         B      B
winter wouldn’t leave it alone, alone.
 
 
           A   C#m
If you go?
           E                 B
If you go your way and I go mine.
           A  C#m
Are we so?
           E                    B
Are we so helpless against the tide?
            A                C#m
Baby every dog on the street
                     E            B
knows that we’re in love with defeat.
                     A                 C#m
Are we ready to be swept off our feet?
           E     B               A     C#m  E  B
And stop chasing every breaking wave..
 
 
               A             C#m
Every sailor knows that the sea
        E              B
is a friend made enemy.
                       A                 C#m
And every shipwrecked soul knows what it is
    E                  B
to live without intimacy.
                       A               C#m
I thought I heard the captain’s voice,
              E                 B
it’s hard to listen while you preach.
                   A            C#m
Like every broken wave on the shore, 
  E                       B       B
this is as far as I could reach..
 
 
          A   C#m
If you go?
           E                 B
If you go your way and I go mine.
           A  C#m

And stop chasing every breaking wave..
 
 
     F#m                                 A
The sea knows where are the rocks, and drowning is no sin.
  E                              B
You know where my heart is, the same place that yours has been.
 F#m                              A                     E
We know that we fear to win, and so we end before we begin,

before we begin..

It was the one thing I could hold on to

My body's sacred and I'm not ashamed

Please Guitar Chords & Lyrics
[Intro]
Bm A Em G x3
 
[Verse 1]
Bm               A
So you never knew love
  Em                  G
Until you crossed the line of grace.
Bm                A
And you never felt wanted
Em                 G
Till you'd someone slap your face.
Bm                A
So you never felt alive
  Em               G
Until you'd almost wasted away.
 
[Pre-chorus 1]
    Bm              A
You had to win, you couldn't just pass
    Em                  G
The smartest ass at the top of the class
    Bm                    A
Your flying colours, your family tree
    Em                  G
And all your lessons in history.
 
[Chorus]
Bm      A       Em
Please, please, please
    G
Get up off your knees.
Bm      A       Em      G
Please, please, please, please, oh yeah
 
[Interlude]
Bm A Em G
 
[Verse 2]
Bm           A        Em
So you never knew how low you'd stoop
   G
To make that call
Bm            A             Em
And you never knew what was on the ground
          G
Till they made you crawl.
Bm           A             Em
So you never knew that the heaven
        G
You keep you stole.
 
[Pre-chorus 2]
Bm                        A
Your Catholic blues, your convent shoes,
     Em                           G
Your stick-on tattoos now they're making the news
    Bm              A
Your holy war, your northern star
     Em                           G
Your sermon on the mount from the boot of your car.
 
[Chorus]
Bm      A       Em
Please, please, please
    G
Get up off your knees
Bm      A       Em
Please, please, please
         G
Leave me out of this, please.
 
[Chorus 2]
   Bm      A
So love is hard
    Em      G
And love is tough
    Bm      A
But love is not
            Em       G
What you're thinking of.
 
[Bridge]
   Bm                 A
September, streets capsizing
         Em            G
Spilling over down the drains
         Bm               A
Shard of glass, splinters like rain
              Em             G
But you could only feel your own pain.
  Bm                  A
October, talk getting nowhere.
   Em        G        A
November, December; remember
        Em
We just started again.
 
[Chorus]
Bm      A       Em
Please, please, please
    G
Get up off your knees, yeah.
Bm      A       Em      G
Please, please, please, please, ah.
 
[Chorus 2]
   Bm      A
So love is big
   Em          G
Is bigger than us.
    Bm      A
But love is not
            Em       G
What you're thinking of.
                 Bm
It's what lovers deal
                 A
It's what lovers steal you know I've found it
Em        G
Hard to receive
       Bm       A
'Cause you, my love
        Em        Bm
I could never believe.

Am                 G            F               Em
 Summer stretching on the grass, Summer dresses pass
Am                 G            F                 Em
 In the shade of a willow tree, Creeps a crawling over me
Am           G         F                   Em
 Over me and over you, Stuck together with God`s glue
Am                     G                     F
 It`s going to get stickier too, It`s been a long hot summer

 I`m not the only one 
                Am
 Starin` at the sun 
                      Dsus
 Afraid of what you`d find 
                 F
 You step back inside 
                          C
 You're not just deaf and dumb 
                Am
 Staring at the sun 
                     Dsus
 You're not the only one

 Who`s happy to go blind

Am                G             F                Em
There`s an insect in your ear, If you scratch it won`t disappear 
Am             G               F                        Em
Gonna itch and burn and sting, You want to see what the scratching brings 
Am                  G             F                Em
Waves that leave me out of reach, Breaking on your back like a beach 
Am           G
Will we ever live in peace? 
      F                  G
Cause those that can`t do...often have to 
F                  G
Those that can`t do...often have to preach 
        C
 To the ones 
                Am
 Starin` at the sun 
                      Dsus
 Afraid of what you`d find 
                 F
 You step back inside 
                          C

Intransigence is all around, Military still in town 
Am            G              F                 Em
Armour plated suits and ties, Daddy just won`t say goodbye 
Am            G                 F               Em
Referee won`t blow the whistle, God is good but will he listen 
Am                           G
I`m nearly great but there`s something I`m missing 
  F               G
I left in the      duty free
    F                     G
She never really belonged to me

 I`m not the only one

 Starin` at the sun

 Afraid of what you`d find

 You step back inside 
                       C
 I'm not sucking on my thumb 
                    Am
 I'm staring at the sun 
                  Dsus
 I'm not the only one

 Who`s happy to go blind

  Happy to go blind

Walk on by, walk on through, walk till you run

Face to face, in a dry and waterless place

Come on take me away

I will be with you again
 
 
[Verse 2]
Am      C         Em
Under a blood red sky
Am          C        Em
A crowd has gathered, black and white
Am      C      Em
Arms entwined, the chosen few
Am              C    Em               G
Newspaper say, says, say it's true, it's true
Am
And we can break through
        G                  F
Though torn in two, we can be one
 
 
[Chorus]
G          Am
I, I will begin again
G          F           Am     C  Em  Am
I, I will begin again, yeah
 
 
[Chorus/Outro]
G               Am
I will be with you again
G               F   Am         C  Em
I will be with you again

And it's you that makes it hard to let go

Sometimes you can't make it on your own
F#m                 E
Sometimes you can't make it

The best you can do is to fake it
