Alvvays - After The Earthquake: chords

           B
After the earthquake
                  A
Pictures hanging diagonally
                           B
Drive through crying in a milkshake
                    A
It wasn’t built to last

            B
Up in the front seat
                            A
You were playing with the station
                              B
And I was fidgeting with the heat
                     E               A            F#m
Looking back to the vibrant days of racket in the hall

Chorus:
  E              B
Caution to the breeze
                      F#m              E       B
Say you’ll climb your way out of your wake now-ow
                F#m
Velvet curtain drawn
  E              B
Flowers at your feet
                   D               A          B
Say you’ll contemplate how you’re weighed down

The pulse of the brake light
Is the colour of burning embers
If you wake up, will you remember
The awful things I said at the edge of the bed?
Thrashing like a great white (I feel the northern tide)
As they rolled you up on a stretcher (Crashing on the pines)
And the faint words of Jessica Fletcher (I feel the northern tide)
Were drowned out by the sound of (Crashing on the pines)

Chorus:
Racket in the hall, caution to the breeze
Say you'll climb your way out of your wake now

      Emaj7                        Amaj7
Those days, I’d never let you fall apart
           Emaj7                              Amaj7
But things fade like the scent of a brand new car
                         Emaj7
Why would I ever fall in love  again
     F#7             F#m        E     B
When every detail is over the guardrail?

Chorus:
Say you'll climb your way out of your wake now
Say you'll contemplate how you’re weighed down
Are you awake now?
Are you awake now?

Racket in the hall
Caution to the breeze
Velvet curtain drawn
Flowers at your feet
