    Intro: / G - - - / - - - - / - - - - / Em7 - - - / Cadd9 - - - / x2

     

                     G (3)

    There's a storm outside, and the gap between crack and thunder

                        Em7         Cadd9

    Crack and thunder, is closing in,

            G (3)                                        Em7                               Cadd9

    is closing in.  The rain floods gutters, and makes a great sound on the concrete

    G (3)                                        

             On a flat roof, there's a boy leaning against the wall of rain

                      Em7           Cadd9

    Aerial held high, calling "come on thunder,

      G (2)                                        

    come on thunder"

     

    Chorus:

            G     Em7                                  Cadd9                               G (2)

    Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul

            G     Em7                                  Cadd9                               G (2)

    Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul

     

               G                                     Em7                               Cadd9

    It's a monsoon, and the rain lifts lids off cars, spinning buses like toys,

       G (3)                                                               

    stripping them to chrome.  Across the bay, the

       Em7                                              Cadd9

    waves are turning into something else, picking up fishing boats and

        G (3)

    spewing them on the shore.  The boy is hit,

                                 Em7       Cadd9

    lit up against the sky, like a sign, like a neon

      G (3)                                                  Em7              Cadd9

    sign.  And he crumples, drops into the gutter, heart strains,

                G (3)                                             Em7                        Cadd9

    legs twitching.  The flood swells his clothes      and delivers him on,

         G (2)

    delivers him on

     

    Chorus

     

    Instrumental:

    / G - - - / Em7 - - - / Cadd9 - - - /

    / G - - - / - - - - / - - - - / Em7 - - - / Cadd9 - - - / x2

    / G - - - / - - - - /

     

                 G                                                   Em7                        Cadd9

    There's four new colors in the rainbow, an old man's taking polaroids

    G (3)                                                      Em7              Cadd9

              But all he captures is endless rain,       endless rain

    G (3)                                                                    Em7             

    endless rain.  He says listen, takes my head and puts my ear to his

                 Cadd9                  G (2)

    And I swear I can hear the sea

     

    Chorus x4

     

    End on G
