Em                                 G
Tell me a piece of your history 
                   D                           C
that you're proud to call your own
Em                                  G
Speak in words you picked up 
                   D                          C
as you walked through life alone.
Em                                  G
We used to swim in your stories 
                   D                          C
and be pulled down by their tide,
Em                          G
choking on the words 
                   D                          C
and drowning with no air inside.

                    C                         G
Now you've hit a wall and it's not your fault
       Em                            D
my dear, my dear, my dear.
                    C                         G
Now you've hit a wall and you've hit it hard,
       Em                            D
my dear, my dear, oh dear.

G                   C                          D
It is not enough to be dumbstruck;
(Can you fill the silence?)
G                      C                         D
you must have the words in that head of yours.
G                             C                    D
And oh, oh, can you feel the silence?

I can't take it anymore,
G               C                          D
'cause it is not enough to be dumbstruck.
(Can you fill the silence?)

Em                                 G
Tell me a piece of your history 
                  D                          C
that you've never said out loud.
Em                                 G
Pull the rug beneath my feet 
                  D                      C
and shake me to the ground.
Em                                 G
Wrap me around your fingers,
                D                        C
break the silence open wide,
Em                                 G
and before it seeps into my ears,
               D                       C
it fills me up from the inside.

                    C                             G
Now you've hit a wall and you're lost for words,
       Em                            D
my dear, my dear, my dear.
                    C                         G
Now you've hit a wall and you hit it hard
       Em                            D
my dear, my dear, oh dear.

G               C                          D
It is not enough to be dumbstruck;
(Can you fill this silence?)
G               C                               D
you must have the words in that head of yours.
G               C                          D
And oh, oh, can you feel the silence?

I can't take it anymore,
G               C                          D
'cause it is not enough to be dumbstruck.
(Can you fill the silence?)

          Em                                     C
If you give it a name, then it's already won.
                G                            D
What you good for, what you good for?
          Em                                     C
If you give it a name, then it's already won.
                G                            D
What you good for, what you good for?

          Em                                     C
If you give it a name, then it's already won.
                G                            D
What you good for, what you good for?
          Em                                     C
If you give it a name, then it's already won.
                G                            D
What you good for, what you good for?

G               C                          D
It is not enough to be dumbstruck;
(Can you fill this silence?)
G               C                               D
you must have the words in that head of yours.

G                C                        D
And oh, oh, can you feel the silence?

I can't take it anymore,
G               C                          D                 G
'cause it is not enough to be dumbstruck, oh.
