[Intro] Am Fmaj7 C C     x2

[Verse 1]
Am                             Fmaj7               C
   Been standing in the corner, studying the lights
Am                        Fmaj7                      C
   The dreaming of escape  will keep you up at night
Am                                   Fmaj7                 C
   But someone had put the flares up, and got me in the rays
Am   Fmaj7                  C
So-o-o-o I guess I’d better stay  - ‘uh uh, no come on’ you say

[Refrain 1]
Fmaj7                        Gadd4
  It’s a fool’s gold thunder, it’s just a warring rain
Fmaj7                                     Gadd4
  Don’t let the fears just start ‘what if - I won’t see you again’
Fmaj7                           Gadd4
  Around here you never want to sleep all night
Fmaj7                       Gadd4
  So start falling in love, start the riot and

[Chorus 1]
        Am    Fmaj7 C
Come on rage  with  me
              Am   Fmaj7           C
We don’t need words,  and we’ll be birds
                    Am    Fmaj7 C C
got to make our own key

[Verse 2]
Am                    Fmaj7       C
Only got this moment, you and me, guilty of nothing, but geography

[Refrain 2]
Fmaj7                   Gadd4
   Come on and raise it, come on and raise this noise
Fmaj7                    Gadd4
   for the million people who got not one voice
Fmaj7                   Gadd4
   come on it’s not over if you mean it say loud
Fmaj7                   Gadd4
   come on all for Love, out from the underground

[Chorus 2]
Am    Fmaj7 C                 Am    Famj7 C
Away  with  me, we don’t need words
           Am    Fmaj7 C                 Am    Fmaj7
Close your eyes  and   see, and we’ll be birds
       C                               Am Fmaj7 C
Flying free, holding on in the mystery

Fearless, fearless, free - you said ‘we’ll go
      Fmaj7       C     Gadd4 
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh through this together’
Am    Fmaj7    C     Gadd4 
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

         Am  Fmaj7 C Gadd4        Am   Fmaj7 C Gadd4 
When you fly won’t you, won’t you take me    too?
        Am    Fmaj7 C Gadd4        Am     Fmaj7 –stop-
in this world so    cruel, I think you’re so    cool
