The Starting Line

Written by Tom Chaplin/Richard Hughes/Tim Rice-Oxley/Jesse Quin

	  		

Intro: C Em G C (2x) 


Verse 1: 


C               Em   
This town was a lovers stage  
     G                  C 
but now you can't recognise 
C                         Em              G 
the streetlights that are daggers to your eyes 
F                     Am 
You can't find your bearings 
       F                  C 
you're slipping into the ground 
    F            Am            Em        G 
The scene has no colour and no sound. 


Verse 2: 


C            Em 
You still believe in me  
 G                     C 
after the things I've done 
 C           Em             G 
You fear for what we have become 
F               Am 
The ground is uneven 
F                       C 
you stumble from day to day 
F                   Am         
You tread where its easy 
              Em            
although your feet are like lead 
        G                F 
and you gotta get underway 


tabchorus
F C Em Am Drag your heart up to the starting line F C G Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time F C Em Am Its too easy to get left behind Dm I know you've been kicked around F C Em G C but tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me.

Verse 3: C Em G Am Each heart is a paper kite blown around by the breeze C Em G Love wont rest till it brings you to your knees F Am F C Some find it easy, some will never even know F Am You think youve done your journey, Em G then you stumble and find that theres such a long way to go

C Em G C Verse 4: C Em Girl, I still believe in you G C your too good to fall so low C Em G we're gonna find a better life I know F Am Things will be clearer F C as soon as we make a start F Am we'll be that much nearer Em G F we're too old to just stand here waiting to break apart

(F) C Em Am Drag your heart up to the starting line F C G Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time F C Em Am Its too easy to get left behind Dm I know you've been kicked around F C Em G C but tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me. On me... C Em G C On me...
