Lyrics
STORM OF DAYS
(STEVE DAFOE 2005)
(COPYRIGHTED)




VERSE : 1

Dmaj7 Amaj7
I FLOAT ON MY BACK, HEAVY IN WATER
NO WHERE NEAR THE ANCHOR OF LAND
TO MANY, A LIFE OF NO MATTER
Cm7 Cm7
AND THE GREY CLOUDS LOOM
AS THE WATER STARTS TO CHURN


CHORUS : 1

Am9 Gmaj7
TIRED OF THESE STORM FILLED DAYS
TIRED OF LIVIN' IN A DRUG FILLED HAZE
TIRED OF PICKING UP PIECES OF ME
EM EM
AS I FLOAT IN A SEA OF DESPAIR
Am9 Gmaj7
WHAT DO I DO TO GET ONE GOOD DAY?
HOW DO I STOP CHASING THE DRAGON?
HOW DID I EVER LOSE MY WAY?
EM EM
PICKING UP PIECES IN MY SEA OF DESPAIR


VERSE : 2

Dmaj7 Amaj7
DAY AND NITE...DRUGS AND DRINK
SHATTERING MYSELF OVER AND OVER AGAIN
NO REALITY...I'M WAY PAST THE BRINK

Cm7 Cm7
AND THE GREY CLOUDS GO BLACK
AS THE WAVES WASH OVER ME

CHORUS : 2

Am9 Gmaj7
HERE'S HOPING FOR A BETTER DAY
I'M IN NEED OF A SHELTERED BAY
I GOTTA KEEP PICKIN' UP PIECES OF ME
EM EM
AS I START TO SINK IN MY SEA OF DESPAIR
Am9 Gmaj7
WHAT DO I DO TO GET ONE GOOD DAY?
HOW DO I STOP CHASING THE DRAGON?
HOW DID I EVER LOSE MY WAY?
EM EM
AS I SINK INTO THE SEA OF DESPAIR


VERSE : 3

WENT TO CHURCH ONCE...A CLINIC FOR SINNERS
THERE WAS NO HELP...CAUSE I AIN'T A WINNER
PLACE SEEMED TO BE JUST A MUSEUM FOR THE SAINTS
Cm7 Cm7
AND THE DARKNESS SURROUNDS ME NOW
AS THE WAVES BATTER ME UNDER THE SEA


CHORUS : 3

Am9 Gmaj7
HOPE I FINALLY FOUND MY BETTER DAY
WHEREVER I'M GOIN', I HOPE I STAY
FINALLY FOUND THE PIECES OF ME
EM EM
I FINALLY LET GO OF THE STORM OF BAD DAYS
Am9 Gmaj7
HOPE I FINALLY FOUND MY BETTER DAY
WHEREVER I'M GOIN', I HOPE I STAY
FINALLY FOUND THE PIECES OF ME
EM EM
FINALLY FREE OF THE STORM OF BAD DAYS
SAFE FROM THE STORM OF DAYS
