Intro : | Bm  - - - | D/A - - - | Bm - - - | D/A - - - | 
        | Bm  - - - | D/A - - - | G - - -  | F#  - - - | 
 
Verse 1 : 
 
Bm                 D/A    Bm                   D/A ( Single D and C# Note ) 
She sits among the pieces of broken glass and photographs 
Bm             D/A        G                   F# 
Reluctantly releases the last of what was her past 
Bm                   D/A   Bm                 D/A 
It struck without a warning or did she just ignore the signs 
Bm                    D/A       G              F# 
In those dark clouds forming behind her silver lines 
 
Refrain : 
 
        G                      A               F#                   Bm 
And the door it slammed like thunder, and the tears they fell like rain 
A        G                 A            F#         Bm 
And the warnings from her family whirl like a hurricane 
A          G           A               F#               Bm 
Oh she's drowning in emotions and she cannot reach the shore 
A       G                  F# 
She's alive but can she survive the Storm 
 
Fill : | Bm  - - - | D/A - - - | Bm - - - | D/A - - - | Strum the last chord 
 
Verse 2 : 
 
Bm                  D/A   Bm             D/A 
A broken jewel box dancer lies in pieces down the hall 
Bm                     D/A            G               F# 
She's finding out the answers don't change nothing at all 
Bm                          D/A      Bm                    D/A 
It's time that she stopped searching for who's to blame or what went wrong 
Bm                  D/A             G                      F# 
The only thing for certain is he's gone, she's got to move on 
 
Refrain : 
 
         G                      A               F#                   Bm 
Then the door was slammed like thunder, and the tears they fall like rain 
A        G                 A            F#         Bm 
And the warnings from her family whirl like a hurricane 
A          G           A               F#               Bm 
Oh she's drowning in emotions but she cannot reach the shore 
A       G                  F# 
She's alive but can she survive the Storm 
 
 
Fill : | Bm  - - - | D/A - - - | Bm - - - | D/A - - - | 
       | Bm  - - - | D/A - - - | G - - -  | F#  - - - | 
 
Bridge : 
 
D                         A            A/C# 
Someday days just roll on by without a gray cloud in the 
Bm              Bm/A            G              A   ( Bm  A/C# ) 
sky, she keeps telling herself "I will make it on my own" and her 
D                                       A              A/C# 
Friend's they've all gone back to their lives thinking she will be all 
Bm           Bm/A               G               F# 
right as she races through the night to make it home 
 
Refrain : 
 
        G                      A               F#                   Bm 
And the door it slamms like thunder, and the tears they fall like rain 
A        G                 A            F#         Bm 
And the warnings from her family whirl like a hurricane 
A          G           A               F#               Bm 
Oh she's drowning in emotions but she cannot reach the shore 
A       G                  F# 
She's alive but can she survive  The Storm 
 
Fill : | Bm  - - - | D/A - - - | Bm - - - | D/A - - - | 
       | Bm  - - - | D/A - - - | G - - -  | F#  - - - | 
 
Outro : 
 
Bm                 D/A    Bm                   D/A 
She sits among the pieces of broken glass and photographs 
Bm             D/A        G                   F# 
Reluctantly releases the last of what was her past 
 
 
 
Comments : I hope that this transcription comes pretty close to the original 
recording. The D/A Chord can be also played as a Bm7/A Chord on the piano. 
But to make the song easier you can also go on and play a standard A Chord 
instead of the D/A Chord. Doesn't sound much different, but is quite a lot 
easier to play.
