Better Than Ezra

Key: E
  
verse 1: 
                              E     A 
And the morning light was breaking 
                   E     A 
Slowly moving across the bed 
                            E      A 
He gets up without her waking 
                             E    A 
To the voices in his head 
                                 E        A 
Through the shadows in the hallway 
                             E     A 
To the room they painted blue 
                                   E     A 
And on the inside he is frightened  
                         E    A 
At a loss for what to do 


Pre-Chorus 
                       E E/F# E/G# A (E chord, base note walk F#-G#-A) 
Until he opens up his eyes 
                        E E/F# E/G# A 
And the angels all look down 


E Even closer than this life A Closer than your faith C#m Closer than the things B A That you hold dearly and in vain E Closer than this life A Falling through again C#m Giving more than anything B A Hold A E E/F# E/G# A That you could hope to win
verse 2: And he knows his life is changing It's never easy letting go For the first time you are mortal As the child before you grows And he wonders at the sight Of the joy that he has found
E Even closer than this life A Closer than your faith C#m Closer than the things B A That you hold dearly and in vain E Closer than this life A Falling through again C#m Giving more than anything B A Hold A E E/F# E/G# A That you could hope to win
B B A A Bridge: B And what would you intend to find? A Solitude? Your peace of mind? B Holding out for something less A E E/F# E/G# E E/F# E/G# Than touching the hand of God?
E Even closer than this life A Closer than your faith C#m Closer than the things B A That you hold dearly and in vain E Closer than this life A Falling through again C#m Giving more than anything B A Hold A E E/F# E/G# A That you could hope to win E Closer than this life A Closer finally C#m Living for the only thing B A You ever made complete C#m Oh, for the one thing B A That you both did perfectly
A Ah - ha C#m A Ah - ha A E Ah - ha
