Capo 3

Intro C Am Em X2

Em
I am the deck, you are the sea, 
Em                                                    C  Am           Em
I am the lights on the water, you are moving underneath, underneath me. 
Em
I am the rail, you are the sea, 
Em                                                               C  Am           Em
I don't know what I'm looking at, don't know if it's even happening underneath me. 

Am                  C                          G     Am                 Em
It doesn't take much. It doesn't take much to ruin a moment like this. 
                G                    Em                    
They curse your name, they whisper, "please, please, please." 
                        G                                                     Em
They're yelling at your waves, "Stop crashing, just please bring her home to me!" 
                 G                                  Em
People can be so mean, they call you, "The Drowning Machine". 


G    C    Am    Em

Em    C     Am

Em
I'm the entertainment, you are the sea, 
Em                                        C  Am          Em
I am the survivor, you didn't even notice me underneath.
Em 
I am the wreck, you are the sea, 
Em                                                         C  Am           Em
I yelled your name cross the water, you just hummed a factory underneath me. 

Am                   C                         G     Am                 Em
It doesn't take much. It doesn't take much to ruin a moment like this. 
            G                 Em   
I call your name, I whisper, "please, please, please." 
                    G                                                      Em   
Not yelling at your waves to stop crashing, just please, bring her home to me. 
                     G                                  Em   
But people can be so mean, they call you, "The Drowning Machine." 

The Drowning Machine.

G    C    Am    Em

Em    C     Am  Em
