Electrical Storm

Verse:
F#m / A / B
The sea it swells like a sore head

and the night it is aching

On rainy days we go swimming out

Pre-Chorus(?):

if the sky can crack
C#m
there must be some way back
D
for love and only love

Intro: F#m / A / E / B

2nd Verse, Same as the First:

Car alarm won’t let you back to sleep
you’re kept awake dreaming some else’s dream
coffee is cold, but it will get you through
compromise, that’s nothing new to you
let’s see colours that have never been seen
let’s go to places no one else has been

Pre-Chorus(?):
You’re in my mind all of the time
I know that’s not enough
if the sky can crack
there must be some way back
to love and only love
