Capo 2
Em    C G
Em    C

Em                                        G
Every new day is a gift, it's a song of redemption
Em                                     G
Any expression of love is the way to return
        C                                             G
To that place that I think of so often, but now never mention
    D                                                        Em
The one the voice in the back of my head says that I don't deserve

     Em                                   
Come fire, come water, come karma
             G
We're all in transition
    Em                                     G
The wheel I'm becoming erases the physical mind
      C                                         G
Until all that remains is a staircase of misinformation
        D                                          Em
And the code we inherit, the basis, the essence of life

         Am                D
So I go, umbrella under my arm
         G            C
Into the green of the radar
Am             D            G
How'd it get so dark in the day?
Am           D
It's just so bizarre
      G                       C
Is it true what we're made of?
Am       D             G
Why do I hide from the rain?

Em   C  G

 Em                        
Inside's so cloudy, nostalgia
                 G
But there are no features
Em               
Look at ourselves through a porthole
               G
The passage of time
         C                                          G
See that sunny day that we snuck out, hid under the bleachers
D
Kissed as the band marched
                     G
Everything fell into line

Em

         Am                D
So I go, umbrella under my arm
         G            C
Into the green of the radar
Am             D         G
How'd I get so lost? I'm amazed.
Am             D
It's just so bizarre
        G           C
All the things I'm afraid of.
Am     D               G
Why do I hide from the rain?

Am D G C
Am D G      x2
 
Em           
   Sure I have my doubts
C
   But I know it now
G         D/F#   C
   We are Jejune stars
Em
   So it starts again
C
   At our childhood's end
G           D/F#     C
   I'll die young at heart

Em

         Am                D
So I go, umbrella under my arm
         G            C
Into the green of the radar
Am              D           G
How'd it get so dark in the day?
Am             D
It's just so bizarre
      G               C
Is it true what we're made of?
Am       D                   G
Why do I hide from the rain?
