Seatbelts Gotta Knock a little Harder


E, F#, D, A/E, E, Esus4, E x 4

Verse 1 :

E Happiness is just a word to me,
G DAnd it might have meant a thing or two
A/Eif I'd known the difference.
E Emptiness, a lonely parody,
G DAnd my life, another smokin’ gun
A/EA sign of my indifference.
CAlways keepin’ safe inside
D Where no one ever had a chance
A/ETo penetrate or break in.
CLet me tell you some have tried,
D but I slam the door so tight
A/EThat they could never get in.
Verse 2 :
E Kept my cool under lock and key
G DAnd I never shed a tear
A/EAnother sign of my condition.
E Fear of love or bitter vanity
G DThat kept on the run
A/EThe main of events at my confession.
CI kept a chain upon my door
DThat would shake the shame of Cain
A/Einto a blind submission.
CThe burning ghost without a name
D Was still calling all the same
A/EBut I just wouldn’t listen.
Chorus 1 (same as intro):
EThe longer I'd stall
The further I'd crawl
F#The further I'd crawl
The harder I'd fall
D A/E EI was crawlin' into the fire
EThe more that I saw
The further I'd fall
F#The further I'd fall
The lower I'd crawl
D A/E EI kept fallin' into the fire
Verse 3 :
E Suddenly it occurred to me
G DThe reason for the run and hide
A/EHad totaled my existence
E Everything left on the other side
G DCould never be much worse that this
A/EBut could I go the distance
C I faced the door and all my shame
D Tearin' off each piece of chain
A/EUntil they were broken
CBut no matter how I tried
D The other side was locked so tight
A/EThe door it wouldn't open
Chorus 2 :
EGave it all that I got
And started to knock
F#Shouted for someone
To open the lock
D A/E EI just gotta get through the door
EAnd the more that I knocked
The hotter I got
F#The hotter I got
The harder I'd knock
D A/E EI just gotta break through the door
EGotta knock a little harder
F#Gotta knock a little harder
D Gotta knock a little harder
A E Break through the door
