Electrical Storm (lyrics)

Intro: F#m / A / E / B

Verse:
F#m / A / B
The sea it swells like a sore head
F#m / A / B
and the night it is aching
F#m / A / B
Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
F#m / A / B
and the day it is breaking

F#m / A / B
On rainy days we go swimming out
F#m / A / B
on rainy days, swimming in the sound
F#m / A / B
On rainy days we go swimming out

Pre-Chorus(?):
D E C#m
You’re in my mind all of the time
D
I know that’s not enough
D E
if the sky can crack
C#m
there must be some way back
D
for love and only love

Intro: F#m / A / E / B

2nd Verse, Same as the First:

Car alarm won’t let you back to sleep
you’re kept awake dreaming some else’s dream
coffee is cold, but it will get you through
compromise, that’s nothing new to you
let’s see colours that have never been seen
let’s go to places no one else has been

Pre-Chorus(?):
You’re in my mind all of the time
I know that’s not enough
if the sky can crack
there must be some way back
to love and only love

It’s hot as hell, honey in this room
sure hope the weather will break soon
the air is heavy, heavy as a truck
hope the rain will wash away our bad luck
