Katie Melua - The Flood chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
A strange, beautiful song. Despite the gorgeous William Orbit production this 
still sounds beautiful with an acoustic guitar.

Tuning: EADGBE capo 1 for the same key as the record

A
Broken people get recycled
And I hope that I will sometimes be thrown over pathways
                          D
What I thought was my way home
                   A
Wasn't the place I know
Iím not afraid of changing
I'm certain nothing's certain
What we are becomes our prison 
                      D
My possessions will be gone
                        A
Back to where they came from

Here comes the flood a-gain

A
See the rock that you hold onto
Is it gonna save you
When the earth begins to crumble
                            D

                   A
Imagine if you let go

Push a-way the weight that pulls you down
Gbm       F          Dm7  Em7      A
Light the waves that free from the dark 

A
Don't trust your eyes
                D
Itís easy to be-lieve them
F
Know in your heart
     Em7                A
That you can leave your prison

Don't trust your mind 
                F
It's not always listening

Turn on the lights
    Em7              A              
And feel the ancient rhythm
