[Verse 1]
           A
After the earthquake
                  G
Pictures hanging diagonally
                           A
Drive through crying in a milkshake
                    G
It wasn’t built to last
 
 
[Verse 2]
            A
Up in the front seat
                            G
You were playing with the station
                          A
And I was fidgeting with the heat
                     D               G            Em
Looking back to the vibrant days of racket in the hall
 
 
[Chorus]
  D              A
Caution to the breeze
                      Em               D       A
Say you’ll climb your way out of your wake now-ow
                Em
Velvet curtain drawn
  D              A
Flowers at your feet
                   C                G          A
Say you’ll contemplate how you’re weighed down

[Verse 3]
                   A                          G
The pulse of the brakelight is the colour of burning embers
                            A
If you wake up, will you remember
                     G
The awful things I said at the edge of the bed?
 
 
[Verse 4]
                   A
Thrashing like a great white
                                       G
         As they rolled you up on a stretcher
(I feel the   northern   tide        crashing)
                                 A
And the faint words of Jessica Fletcher
(on   the   pines)
                                   D       G            Em
         Were drowned out by the sound of racket in the hall
(I feel the    northern    tide     crashing on the pines)
 
 
[Chorus]
  D            A
Caution to the breeze
                      Em               D       A
Say you’ll climb your way out of your wake now-ow
 
 
[Bridge 1]
      Dmaj7                        Gmaj7
Those days, I’d never let you fall apart
           Dmaj7                               Gmaj7
But things fade  like the scent of a brand new  car
                         Dmaj7
Why would I ever fall in love  again
     E7               Em        D        A
When every detail is over the guardrail?
                      Em               D    A
Say you’ll climb your way out of your wake now
 
 
[Chorus]
 A                 C               Em      A
Say you’ll contemplate how you’re weighed down
 
 
[Post-Chorus]
                   Em  D  A
Are you awake now?
                   Em  D  A
Are you awake now?
 
 
[Outro]
              Em
Racket in the hall
  D              A
Caution to the breeze
                Em
Velvet curtain drawn
  D              A
Flowers at your feet
 
 
[Outro]
Em D A  A
C  G  A

                  After the earthquake
Pictures hanging diagonally
Drive through crying in a milkshake
It wasn't built to last
Up in the front seat
You were playing with the station
And I was fidgeting with the heat
Looking back to the vibrant days of

Racket in the hall
Caution to the breeze
Say you'll climb your way out of your wake now
Velvet curtain drawn
Flowers at your feet
Say you'll contemplate how you're weighed down

The pulse of the brakelight
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)

Racket in the hall
Caution to the breeze
Say you'll climb your way out of your wake now

Those days, I'd never let you fall apart
But things fade like the scent of a brand new car
Why would I ever fall in love again
When every detail is over the guardrail?

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
