Thea Gilmore - Concrete chords

      
Am FNovember in a rainstorm, the truest truth I ever heard
GThe sound of babies crying in a hospital ward
Am FOh, like a bed of rushes, they spread love out on the concrete floor
G AmNames, and dates, and faces I really can't remember anymore
Am FWe could hardly tell the difference between one year and another
GSun like pouring whiskey, snow like shedding skins of lovers
Am FAnd, I grew up with magic; free and wild as bindweed
G AmPushing for the boundary, pushing through the edges of the concrete
C EI'm the girl that bought a round-trip cross the Rubicon
E Am (?)And I'm not sure that even I know where I'm coming from
Am FSentimental tango when I was just fourteen
GI could hear Astaire and Rogers tap their way across the screen
Am FOh, bullied and belittled, until the sun set in the concrete
G AmI wore my sister's black skirt, all dressed up for Halloween
Am FWe could hardly tell the difference between the shouting and the quiet
GIt was the path of least resistance to stage my own private riot
Am FAnd the walls tumbled like Babel, down around my feet
G AmRhyme came in deliverance rising through the wreckage and the concrete
C EI'm the girl that bought a round-trip cross the Rubicon
E Am (?)I'm not sure that even I know where I'm coming from
Am FFor a girl who loves her words, yeah, she loves her silence more
GFound a better example of what hearts and tongues are for
Am FThere is truth in your arm's love, there is truth in this song
G AmThere is truth in the concrete and the nails that our lives are built upon.
