The Novel Ideas – Promise chords

Chords and Lyrics by Daniel Radin

C#m7 Promise Here we are now in the backyard On the warm ground out at sundown
E But in twelve days I'll be halfway
ECross the world, I'm too tired to be afraid
Aadd4 You've got green eyes, I had foresight
EWhen I said we'd be good I was so right
Aadd4 If we lay here, spend every day here
F#m Aadd4 Well our legs might take root and we'll grow dear
E Aadd4 I made a promise to
EI made a promise to
EI made a promise to you
F#m C#m A (Break) E Aadd4 I'd protect you if I had to
E So the bad parts never get through
Aadd4 From the outside into your life
EWe can try but we might have some hard nights
Aadd4 Now we can't speak 'neath the pine trees
EAnd I swear that there's air but I can't breathe
Aadd4 I need your heat, I've got cold feet
F#m Aadd4 It's the thought that still makes this so easy
E Aadd4 I made a promise to
EI made a promise to
EI made a promise to you
F#m C#m AThat we'd still feel brand new
EThat we'd still feel brand new
EThat we'd still feel something
F#m C#m A (Break) E Aadd4 Bsus4 C#m7 Bsus4 E (x4) She's not too fond of history
C#m7 Bsus4 EHearing loud of abrasive speech
C#m7 Bsus4 Aadd4She's unique in the way she eats
C#m7 Bsus4 Aadd4oh yeah she loves me
C#m7 Bsus4 EWhy she does hell I cannot say
C#m7 Bsus4 EI can't seem to stay in one place
C#m7 Bsus4 Aadd4Always gone and I'm far away
C#m7 Bsus4 Aadd4 from the smile on her face
C#m7 Bsus4 E (Repeats throughout last section) E Aadd4 Bsus4 C#m7 Bsus4 E (x6) Was it something that I couldn't say? Fast enough to get away And though I tried to make a clean escape You left me with an even break And i think I saw myself in you But I think you saw a proper fool And I know we broke every rule With everything we didn't do I'll remember every day If you remember every dumb mistake That you made cause you were late But its my fault I made you wait In this city I cant speak Well you know this place is killing me And it's harder to believe But it's hard enough to watch you leave
