Blink chords

Things Of Stone And Wood

Key: 

from the album "Whirligig" Transcribed by Daniel Schaumann C G Am C Before our eyes there are a million things we haven't tried F Dm They'll get here in the morning Am G They're just around the corner C G Am C It can be hard when we're all blanketed by the cold and dark F Dm We're waiting for the sun Am G We've got a smile to warm us PRE-CHORUS: Am C Cause lately, everything's so heavy F Em Am F I just want the trick that makes me laugh just for fun Dm G Because we're not too old and we're not too young
C Em We've got rainbows in our eyes Am C F Barefoot down the street we dodge the broken glass Dm Just to get a laugh F G We fly by in a blink of their eye
So I made myself a stern face with a cast of clay I didn't have the knack You made a joke and it just cracked And I watched as all the serious bits flew across the floor Now I'm a different fella I paint the pieces pretty colours PRE-CHORUS: Lately everyone's so honest I just want the white lie as it shines in the coal Because we're not too young and we're not too old CHORUS: We've got rainbows in our eyes Barefoot down the street we dodge the broken glass Just to get a laugh We fly by in a blink of their eye We've got sunshine in our pockets Throw it around the room to cheer the cold dark night With the speed of light We fly by in a blink of their eye Am Em F G And I sang with my head in the dark clouds Am Em F But now I sing about the small good things F#dim Darling here comes Spring G I'll race you there
