lyrics

Ferris Wheel Kiya Heartwood
Intro: B/B/ F#/ F#/C#m add4/ G#m7/ F#/F#/B/B/F#/F#/C#m add4/G#m7/E F#/B/B
B
It was the Ferris wheel.
F#
It was too high for me.
C#m add4
I closed my eyes,
G#m7
pulled down the bar,
F#
and prayed for gravity.
B
I felt your heartbeat then.
F#
It was steady as she goes.
C#m add4
I took your hand
G#m7
and I knew then
E F# B
That I would never let you go.
B section:
E
Waves crashing down,
B
lulled by the sound,
F#
of the tides that come and go.
E
If the weather is clear,
B
the stars that we steer by,
F#
light us here below.
(Intro as solo)
Bridge:
C#
Changing my future, changing my name,
E B
I will raise my voice.
C#
Tracing the patterns of trouble and shame,
E F#
I will make my choice.
Verse 2
And as the lights came down.
You were a friend to me.
The earth underneath
Tilted complete with
sudden electricity.
Then the words you spoke,
Only I could hear.
Strong arrows flew,
Split me in two,
And I gave my heart to you.
B.
It was the Ferris wheel.
It was too high for me.
I closed my eyes, pulled down the bar,
And prayed for gravity.

Love Everybody. Write Great Songs. Raise Hell.
