Billy Talent - White Sparrows: chords

  D#m               C#
Today I walked down our old street
D#m             C#
Past the diner where we'd meet
 B           G#m             D#m  C#
Now I dine alone in our old seats
     D#m                   C#
The cold wind blows right through my bones
    D#m              C#
And I feel like I'm getting old
    B             G#m              D#m C#
But I wish I was getting old with you

   B                   D#m
I held your hand when we took
                  B
Shelter from the rain
               D#m
She laughed as we picked
Out our children's names

Chorus:
B       G#m     D#m
White sparrows fell from
            C#           B
Heaven and carried her away
      G#m    D#m
Black arrows cut the strings
       C#
Of my heart I kneel and pray

Her clothes hang in the closet still
The phone sits on the windowsill
And every time it rings it gives me chills
My heart just stopped when I was told
Doctor, doctor, on the phone
Said my love was never coming home

I hold your casket gently
Walking to the grave
Dark clouds eclipse
The sun won't shine again

Chorus

They gave her one more day
To say the words I couldn’t say
I’m crying in pain
Crying in pain

    D#m                 C#
And I'm not looking for answers
    D#m                 C#
No, I'm not looking for answers
     B         G#m     D#m
But dear God, why did you choose her?

Chorus

They gave her one more day
To say the words I couldn’t say
I’m crying in pain
Crying in pain
Our love will remain
I’m crying in pain
