[INTRO] B F# B F# B F# C# Ebm B F#
[VERSE]
F#                      B
It really breaks my heart
F#                     B
To see a dear old friend
F#   C#           Ebm    B       F#
Go down in the worn old place again



    

F#                  B
Do you know the sound
F#                B
Of a closing door?
F#        C#          Ebm    B        F#    B
Have you heard that sound somewhere before?

[PRE-CHORUS]
      F#          C#   Ebm     B    F#   C#
Do you wonder if she knows you anymore?

[CHORUS]
B                                      F#
I wrapped your love around me like a chain
         B                            C#
But I never was afraid that it would die
F#                  B       Ebm
You can dance in a hurricane
Ebm                          C#     F#
But only if youre standing in the eye

[VERSE]
F#                        B
Where did you learn to walk?
F#                       B
Where did you learn to run?
F#              Ebm  B      F# B
Away from everything you love

F#                      B
Did you think the bottle
F#                      B
Would ever ease your pain?
F#        C#       Ebm        B      F# B
Did you think that loves a foolish game?

[PRE-CHORUS]
          F#     C#   Ebm     B      F#   C#
Did you find someone else to take the blame?

[CHORUS]

I wrapped your love around me like a chain

[VERSE]
B F#            B
I am a sturdy soul
F#                    B
And there ain't no shame 
F#    C#  Ebm        B            F# B
In lying down in the bed you've made
        F#          C#      Ebm   B         F# C#
Can you fight the urge to run for another day?

[PRE-CHORUS]
                    Ebm   C#                 F#
You might make it further if you learn to stay

View Just Lyrics...

It breaks my heart to see a dear old friend
Go down that worn out place again
Do you know the sound of a closing door?
Have you heard that sound somewhere before?
Do you wonder if she knows you anymore?

I wrapped your love around me like a chain
But I never was afraid that it would die
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye

Where did you learn to walk?
Where did you learn to run?
Away from everything you love
And did you think the bottle
Would ever ease your pain?
Did you think that love's a foolish game?
Did you find someone else to take the blame?

I wrapped your love around me like a chain
But I never was afraid that it would die
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye

You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye

I am a sturdy soul
And there ain't no shame
In lying down in the bed you made
Can you fight the urge to run for another day?
You might make it further if you learn to stay

I wrapped your love around me like a chain
But I never was afraid that it would die
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye

You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye
