Newsboys – Elle G chords

[Verse 1]
Dm C FThumbs out on a desert road I am told
AmLeads to nowhere
Dm CAny shade is as good as the next
F AmIf your shadow doesn't go there
Em FWeek seven: Did you really assume
Am GI'd find some solace from the letter in your room?
Em FNext life, could you kindly refain
Am GFrom throwing yourself at the mercy of a train?
[Chorus 1]
Am Dm GSilence all, nobody breathe
C FHow in the world could you just leave?
A#You promised you would
FSilence that evil with good
Am Dm GHear me out, I have the floor
C FI'll give you my tears, I'll listen more
A#You promised you would
F Dm C F Am Dm C F Am DmOvercome evil with good
[Verse 2]
Dm C FMaybe this world is a barren place for a soul
AmProne to get lost
Dm CBut heaven still hounds from the smallest sounds
F AmTo the cries of the storm-tossed
Em FWeek nine: I am writing in the sand
Am GAny little clue that could help me understand
Em FEvery whispered secret, every muffled sigh
Am GEvery half-truth that was added to a lie
[Chorus 2]
Am Dm GSilence all, nobody move
C FI've got to know now what you hoped to prove
A#You promised you would
FSilence that evil with good
Am Dm GShame feeds guilt, guilt needs release
CYou took it to God
FYou made your peace
A#And swore that you would
FOvercome evil with good
Am F C F G Dm C Em Dm G [Verse 3]
Em FEvery old demon playing back the crime
Am GIf they needed blood, I'd have gladly given mine
Em FA Child of the Kingdom; still an invalid
AmForgive her, please Father
GShe don't know what she did
[Chorus 3]
Am Dm GSilence all, now go to sleep
C FThe water's free, the well is deep
A#How can we return
FThat which we never could earn?
Am Dm GGod, I long to see her face
CWe haven't a hope
FBeyond Your grace
A#I know that You will
FOvercome evil
DmFor good
