PLAY CRACK THE SKY Guitar Chords by Brand New

[Verse 1]

F A# F A# F A# Dm Gm

N.C
We sent out
F A# F A# F A# Dm Gm
the S.O.S call, it was a quarter past four in the morning when the storm broke our second anchor line
F A# F A# F A# Dm Gm
Four months at sea, four months of calm seas to be pounded by the shallows off the tip of Montauk Point
F A# F A# F A# Dm Gm
They call ’em rogues, they travel fast and alone. One hundred foot faces of God’s good ocean gone wrong
F A# F A# F A# Dm Gm
What they call love is a risk, cuz you’ll always get hit out of nowhere by some wave and end up on your own

[Chorus 1]
A# F Dm Gm
The hole in the hull defied the crews attempts to bail us out,
A# F Dm Gm
and flooded the engines and radio, and half buried bow

[Verse 2]

F A# F A# F A# Dm Gm

F A# F A#
Your tongue is a rudder, it steers the whole ship,
F A# Dm Gm
sends your words past your lips or keeps them safe behind your teeth,
F A# F A#
but the wrong words will strand you, come off course while you sleep
F A# Dm Gm
Sweep your boat out to sea or dashed to bits on the reef
F A# F A#
The vessel groans, the ocean pressures its frame
F A# Dm Gm
and to the port I see the lighthouse through the sleet and the rain
F A# F A#
And I wish for one more day to give my love and repay debts,
F A# Dm Gm
but the morning finds our bodies washed up thirty miles west

[Chorus 2]
A# F Dm Gm
They say that the captain stays fast with the ship through still and storm
A# F Dm Gm
but this ain’t the Dakota, and the water’s cold, won’t have to fight for long.

[Outro] x2 (Change to 4/4)

F A# F A# F A# Dm Gm
This is the end
F
This story’s old but it goes on and on until we disappear,
A#
calm me and let me taste the salt you breathed while you were underneath
F
I am the one who haunts your dreams of mountains sunk below the sea
A#
I spoke the words but never gave a thought to what they all could mean
Dm
I know that this is what you want, a funeral keeps both of us apart
Gm
You know that you are not alone, need you like water in my lungs

[Ending]
F
This is the end.
