​a-ha - Scoundrel Days: chords

Bm                          Em
Was that somebody's scream,
It wasn't me for sure
A#                                   Gm
I lift my head up from uneasy pillows,
Put my feet on the floor
Dm                             Gm
I Cut my wrist on a bad thought
and head for the door

Outside on the pavement
The dark makes no noise
I can feel the sweat on my lips
Leaking into my mouth
I'm heading out for the steep hills
They're leaving me no choice

Chorus:
    Em G D        Am               C G D Am
And see   as our lives are in the making
     Em G D            Am            C G D
We believe through the lies and the hating
      Am        Em G Am
That love goes free

For want of an option
I run the wind 'round
I dream pictures of houses burning
Never knowing nothing else to do
With death comes the morning
Unannounced and new
Was it too much to ask for
To pull a little weight...
They forgive anything but greatness
These are scoundrel days
And I'm close to calling out their names
As pride hits my face

Chorus:
    Em G D        Am               C G D Am
And see   as our lives are in the making
     Em G D            Am            C G D
We believe through the lies and the hating
      Am        Gm F Em        D#       Gm F Em D#
That love goes free  through scoundrel days

I reach the edge of town
I've got blood in my hair
Their hands touch my body
From everywhere
But I know that I've made it
As I run into the air

Chorus:
    Em G D        Am               C G D Am
And see   as our lives are in the making
     Em G D            Am            C G D
We believe through the lies and the hating
      Am        Em G D Am C G D
That love goes free
         Am        G
Through scoundrel days
