Blue October – Coal Makes Diamonds Chords

NO CAPO

G
If I'm a desert,
D
My face is the wind
Em
I know where I'm going
C
And I know where I've been
G                   D
You're the horizon and the wide open space
Em                           C
And I surround you caressing your face

G
There's not a limit to the things that I'd do
D
I'd give you stars but the stars wouldn't do
Em
You're like the lava burning buried below
C
An eruption but too early to show

G
We are islands
D
Hear our sirens
Em
And so we wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me)
C
We wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me)

G
'Cause when pressure heightens
D
Our coal makes diamonds
Em
And so we wait... (wait, down, in front of me)
C
We wait... (wait, down, wait, down)
G The flood comes shifting the soil D Our blood runs thicker than oil Em It's like erosion cutting straight to the core C No human nature ever felt this before G And we become an unbreakable vow D I wanna hold you up, higher than most Em C Because it feels like flying out G We are islands D Hear our sirens Em And so we wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me) C We wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me)
G 'Cause when pressure heightens D Our coal makes diamonds Em And so we wait... (wait, down, in front of me) C We wait... (wait, down, wait, down) (Wait, down, in front of me) G We are islands D Hear our sirens Em And so we wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me) C We wait... (wait, down, put it right in front of me) G 'Cause when pressure heightens D Our coal makes diamonds Em And so we wait... (wait, down, in front of me) C We wait... (wait, down, wait, down) Wait, down, in front of me. Wait, down.
