Rhys Lewis – What Wild Things Were

Chord Rhys Lewis – What Wild Things Were

[INTRO:]
F


[VERSE:]
Dm         F          Am  
I still remember the turn 
         G
of the leaves
         Dm             F      
And the first signs of blossom 
   Am          G
on our cherry trees
    Dm            F     
And I still hear rivers 
     Am      G
from old memories
  Dm             F         
I still dare at starlight, 
   Am        G
but only in dreams


[CHORUS:]
           Dm  F       
'Cause we brooooke the 
 Am           G
home that we had
             Dm  F  
And there's nooooo, 
        Am        G
there's no going back
                      Dm
To when things were alive
                    F
And blue could describe
               Am      
The colour the sky was 
           G
before it burned
         Dm              
When we still woke up to 
     F            Am  G
the sound of the birds
        Dm                   
How we didn't have to wonder 
      F           Am  G
what wild things were


[VERSE:]
      Dm          F      
I'm scared of forgetting 
     Am            G
how things used to be
          Dm            F  
Like the days we could lay 
         Am              G
down on grass that was green
       Dm           F     
And I miss how the winter 
      Am             G
once painted these streets
         Dm             F   
And the sound that the snow 
     Am        G
made under my feet


[CHORUS:]
           Dm  F       
'Cause we brooooke the 
 Am           G
home that we had
             Dm  F  
And there's nooooo, 
        Am        G
there's no going back
                      Dm
To when things were alive
                    F
And blue could describe
               Am      
The colour the sky was 
           G
before it burned
         Dm              
When we still woke up to 
     F            Am  G
the sound of the birds
        Dm                   
How we didn't have to wonder 
      F           Am  G
what wild things were

         Dm              
When we still woke up to 
     F            Am  G
the sound of the birds,
        Dm                   
And we didn't have to wonder 
      F           Am
what wild things were


[BREAK:]
      G     Am      F      
Well, if I have a daughter 
     G     Am    F
how will I ever tell her
      G          Am     F
The ghosts that came before her
       F        Am            G
Just broke the home that she has
            F   
And there's no, 
        Am        G
there's no going back


[CHORUS:]
                      Dm
So when things were alive
                    F
And blue could describe
               Am      
The colour the sky was 
           G
before it burned
            Dm              
How she'll never wake up to 
     F            Am  G
the sound of the birds
              Dm             
'Cause she's always going to 
             F           Am  G
wonder what wild things were
            Dm              
How she'll never wake up to 
     F            Am  G
the sound of the birds
              Dm                    
'Cause she's always going to wonder 
      F           Am  G  Dm  F
what wild things weeeeeeeeeeeere


[OUTRO:]
Am  G  Dm  F    Am  G

She's always gonna wonder
       Am          G
She's never gonna know
       Dm           F
