Oceans And Engines Chord NIKI

Capo 1 with [Am] [G] [C] [F] [Dm]


VERSE
Saturday sunset we’re lying
On my bed with five hours to go
Fingers entwined and so were our minds
Crying I don’t want you to go
You wiped away tears but not fears under
The still and clear indigo
You said, ‘Baby don’t cry, we’ll be fine
You’re the one thing I swear I can’t outgrow’

VERSE
My mother said the younger me was
A pretending’ prodigy well nothing
Then, much has changed
Coz while you’re wolfing down liquor
My soul it gets sicker
But I’m stickin’ to the screenplay, gotta say
I’m okay but answer this babe:
How is it now that somehow you’re a stranger
You were mine just yesterday
I prayed the block in my airway dissipates
And instead deters your airplane’s way

PRE-CHORUS
But heaven denied
Destiny decried
Something beautiful died
Too soon

CHORUS
But I’m letting gooooooooo
I’m givin’ up the ghost
But don’t get me wrong
I’ll always love you that’s why
I wrote you this very last song
I guess this is where we say goodbye
I know I’ll be alright
Someday I’ll be fine
But just not tonight

VERSE
Plunging into all kinds of diversions like
Blush wine and sonorous soirees
But even with gin and surgin’ adrenaline
I see you’re all that can intoxicate
Oceans and Engines, you’re skilled
At infringin on great love affairs
Cause now my heart’s home all I’ve known is
Long gone and 10 thousand miles away

PRE-CHORUS
And I’m not okay

CHORUS
But I’m letting gooooooooo
I’m givin’ up the ghost
But don’t get me wrong
I’ll always love you that’s why
I wrote you this very last song
I guess this is where we say goodbye
I know I’ll be alright
But just not

BRIDGE
Tonight was the first time I stared into seas
Of beguiling sepia two years ago and the first time
I learned real world superpowers lived in three words
And could revitalize my frayin’ bones
Now what do you do when
Your pillar crumbled down, you’ve lost all solid ground
Both dreams and demons drowned, and this void is all
You’ve found and doubts light it aglow?
I have so many questions
But I’m pourin them into the ocean and
I’m starting up my engine……..

CHORUS
And I’m letting go
I’m givin’ up your ghost
It’s come to a close
I marked the end with this last song I wrote

OUTRO
I’m letting go
This is the last falsetto
I’ll ever sing to you my great, lost love
