Bastille - The Silence: chords

 C
Tell me a piece of your history
              G                C
that you're proud to call your own
  C
Speak in words you picked up
        G                    C
as you walked through life alone.

We used to swim in your stories
And be pulled out by their tide
Choking on the words
And drowning with no air inside

           Em                   C
Now you've hit a wall and it's not your fault
    G                 D
my dear, my dear, my dear.
           Em                     C
Now you've hit a wall and you've hit it hard,
    G                 D
my dear, my dear, oh dear.

Chorus:
C           G           D
It is not enough to be dumbstruck;
(Can you fill the silence?)
C                  G             Em      B
you must have the words in that head of yours.
    C                G
And oh, oh, can you feel the silence?
Em              D
I can't take it anymore,
       C           G           D
'cause it is not enough to be dumbstruck.
(Can you fill the silence?)

Tell me a piece of your history
That you've never said out loud
Pull the rug beneath my feet
And shake me to the ground

Wrap me around your fingers
Break the silence open wide
Before it seeps into my ears
And fills me up from the inside

Now you've hit a wall and you're lost for words
My dear, my dear, my dear
Now you've hit a wall and you hit it hard
My dear, my dear, oh dear

Chorus

        C
If you give it a name, then it's already won.
          G                  D
What you good for, what you good for?
        C
If you give it a name, then it's already won.
          G                  D
What you good for, what you good for?
        C                        G
If you give it a name, then it's already won.
          D
What you good for, what you good for?
        C                        G
If you give it a name, then it's already won.
          Em                 D
What you good for, what you good for?
