The Cat Empire – How To Explain chords

Capo V
E (trumpet solo)

G F (E)When a room becomes an altar
And what beast that must exist
Dm6 It flies with music from our lips
FAnd steals a kiss and blows it
Dm6 EOut into the mist
Where castles stand on cliffs And cobbled streets they wind and drift
Dm6 And moods are made and set but shift
FThis place where skies are low
Dm6 EAnd birds are big
We went to sleep in day And woke again the same day
Dm6 We have learned to cheat the time
FAnd find the hours
Dm6 EThat the clocks cannot define
As I looked up from that stage
Dm6I felt the thing that had been made
And how it raged
FAnd how it raged
DmHow to explain?
Something makes me howl
G7And shiver to the core
AmAh outside if it was raining
F GThen inside there'd be a storm
AmWe've got a pair of hands for climbing
F GAnd a pair of knees to spring
AmAnd a pair of balls for strength
F GAnd a pair of lungs to sing
AmAnd these simple chords
F (F) GThat say: music is the language of us all
Am E Am (x4) E...
G F E To write these songs is to be written
Ah the chorus always knows
Dm6What is in store
FAnd what is more the thing that sings us
Dm6 EIs the thing that makes us roar
I felt that beast 'kisso my neck We clapped our hands
FAnd heard them spread
Dm6There was a trumpet and a call
F E A pack of Spaniards screamed for more
Music is the language of us all Music is the language of us all Music is the language of us all Music is the language of us all Am E Am (x12) E...
DmI find it hard to speak emotional
G7Cos these things are the things that
CCan't be said
And when it's struck it strikes
F GThe memory from our heads
Am Once I wrote to play's
F GTo be immortal for a night
AmAnd despite the unknown hours
FSomething happens
G C When the light turns out the lights
AmThen we fade and yawn
F GTo music that's the language of us all
