Coming Back to life Chords and lyrics

C F

Where were you when I was burned and broken

Am G F

While the days slipped by from my window watching

C F

Where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless

Am G F

Because the things you say and the things you do surround me

Am F

While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words

Am Bb

Dying to believe in what you heard

Am7 G C

I was staring straight into the shining sun

C F

Lost in thought and lost in time

Am G F

While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted

C F

Outside the rain fell dark and slow

Am G F

While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime

Am F

I took a heavenly ride through our silence

Am Bb

I knew the moment had arrived

Am7 G C

For killing the past and coming back to life

Am F

I took a heavenly ride through our silence

Am Bb

I knew the waiting had begun

Am7 G C

And headed straight… Into the shining sun

I hope you enjoyed playing and learning the Coming Back To Life chords to the song. Make sure you play the chords carefully at first especially the barre chords as this usually gives a lot of strain on your fingers if you are not used to playing these. To make this even more fun and interesting why not get hold of the backing track to play against. I have done this and it is so much fun. It gives you a great buzz!
