G#m | D#m | G#m | D#m |

G#m D#m
When the room is quiet
G#m D#m E
The daylight almost gone
C#m(IV) D#m G#m D#m
It seems there's something I should know
G#m D#m
Well, I ought to leave
G#m D#m E
But the rain it never stops
C#m(IV) D#m G#m D#m | G#m | D#m |
And I've no particular place to go

C#m(IX) C#m7 B C#m(IX) C#m7
Just when I think I'm winning
B
When I've broken every door
F#m G#m
The ghosts of my life
A F#m G#m
Blow wilder than before
C#m(IX) C#m7 B C#m(IX) C#m7
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
B
When my chance came to be king
F#m G#m
The ghosts of my life
A F#m E
Blew wilder than the wind

G#m | D#m | G#m | D#m |

G#m D#m
Well, I'm feeling nervous
G#m D#m E
Now I find myself alone
C#m(IV) D#m G#m D#m
The simple life's no longer there
G#m D#m G#m
Once I was so sure
D#m E
Now the doubt inside my mind
C#m(IV) D#m G#m D#m | G#m | D#m |
Comes and goes but leads nowhere

C#m(IX) C#m7 B C#m(IX) C#m7
Just when I think I'm winning
B
When I've broken every door
F#m G#m
The ghosts of my life
A F#m G#m
Blow wilder than before
C#m(IX) C#m7 B C#m(IX) C#m7
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
B
When my chance came to be king
F#m G#m
The ghosts of my life
A F#m E | G#m | D#m |
Blew wilder than the wind

G#m | D#m | E | C#m(IV) D#m |

Just when I thought I could not be stopped

When my chance came to be king
F#m G#m
The ghosts of my life
A F#m E | G#m | D#m |
Blew wilder than the wind
G#m D#m | G#m | D#m | G#m ||
Than the wind

When the room is quiet
The daylight almost gone
It seems there's something I should know
Well, I ought to leave
But the rain it never stops
And I've no particular place to go

Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life
Blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life
Blew wilder than the wind

Well, I'm feeling nervous
Now I find myself alone
The simple life's no longer there
Once I was so sure
Now the doubt inside my mind
Comes and goes, but leads nowhere
