Macklemore – Excavate chords

Chords
Transpose:
[Chorus: Saint Claire]
Em

G C EmFill my lungs up, pour my heart out, peel my bones away
G C G EmCrack my window, shed my shadow, excavate my pain
[Verse 1: Macklemore]
GIf I could read the world my notebook and these thoughts in it
CWould they judge me or love me for what I've written?
Em GTryna get closer to spirit that enters the body
CIt's the vessel like I'm not in it
Em GIn fifty-something years, I won't be here
CThere'll be a kid with some headphones coverin' his ears
Em GWalkin' 'round a hallway, dreamin' of ideas
CFind himself in the sound 'cause music is a mirror
Em GWhat you looking for? What you headed towards?
CWhat's your name worth when they mention yours?
Em GWhen you leave here, are you stepping forward?
CCan you remember your intention when they question yours?
GThey're gonna question yours, they're gonna question yours
CI've been to rock bottom and I'm headed North
Em GIf you don't love yourself, what's the respect for?
CIf you don't love life, the check won't correct yours
Excavate [Chorus: Saint Claire]
G C EmFill my lungs up, pour my heart out, peel my bones away
G C EmCrack my window, shed my shadow, excavate my pain
G CAnd I found peace
EmAnd I found peace
GAnd I found peace
[Verse 2: Macklemore]
GI had this vision of my death
CSurrounded by people I love and respect
EmIn the baby blue Cadillac hearse
G CPullin' me 'round the block that I rep
Em GThe greatest fear that I've ever kept
CIs dying with regrets
Em GLike was I just alive for success?
C EmOr did I leave a better life for the rest?
GMy greatest achievement isn't the dollars
C EmMy greatest achievement isn't the followers
GMy greatest achievement isn't the accolades
CMy greatest achievement is my daughter
Em GWakin' up in the morning, bein' a father
CWatchin' the light kiss her eyelids
Em GHearin' her sing along to Chance
CAnd bein' like, "Yeah, that's my kid"
GThe light started to glow
CAnd the saxophone from Coltrane started to blow
Em GTender, laying in the snow, turn on my headphones
CCouple miles to go before I run out of road
GExcavate
[Chorus: Saint Claire]
G C EmFill my lungs up, pour my heart out, peel my bones away
G C EmCrack my window, shed my shadow, excavate my pain
G CAnd I found peace
EmAnd I found peace
G CAnd I found peace
EmAnd i found peace
[Outro: Macklemore]
G CHold me up into the light and study every part of me
Em G CI'm an open book, no, I don't mind, but sometimes I'm hard to read
Em G CJust flesh and bone, I'm headed home, but this life is so hard to leave
Em G CBut who am I when they cut the lights and nobody's watching me?
G CHold me up into the light and study every part of me
Em G CI'm an open book, no, I don't mind, but sometimes I'm hard to read
Em G CJust flesh and bone, I'm headed home, but this life is so hard to leave
Em G CBut who am I when they cut the lights and nobody's watching me?
G C EmGemini
