All these last words
But I can’t know hers.

Don’t want to be holding on,

Somewhere I don’t belong.

One more time

Through my mind

Something I could have said

Signs that I should have read

Am            D
But she found her way out at last
Am            D

The crisp blue ink read, ‘Straight and fast’.

Count the days

Till I can get away
From those emerald green eyes
Flying towards the flashing lights

We’re more than just
Ashes and dust

More than what’s visible

We are invincible.

Am               D
Don’t wanna wait for your time to pass
Am              D

Before you look for your great perhaps.

  1. There we go – uploaded the tabs. Sorry the text is small, the only way I can get the tabs to line up is by using ‘preformatted’ text which apparently has to be really small. Thanks wordpress!

    • Wow thanks!
      I guess I will go sink my teeth into that, it looks pretty damn difficult but hey, who cares? I’ll just have to keep practicing 🙂

  2. This is so beautiful!
