Intro:  Am G Am G
          Am G F  E
Verse 1:

Am                         G       Am                         G
She sits among the pieces of broken glass and photographs
Am              G              F                             E
Reluctantly releases the last of what was her past
Am                       G         Am                 G
It struck without a warning or did she just ignore the signs
Am                           G           F                      E
In those dark clouds forming behind her silver lines



        F                                  G                       E
Am
And the door it slammed like thunder, and the tears they fell like rain
              F                        G               E                Am
And the warnings from her family whirl like a hurricane
               F                  G                      E
Am
Oh she's drowning in emotions and she cannot reach the shore
           F                       E              Am
She's alive but can she survive the Storm

 Am G Am G
Verse 2:

Am                          G        Am               G
A broken jewel box dancer lies in pieces down the hall
Am                          G                F                         E
She's finding out the answers don't change nothing at all
Am                                   G        Am
G
It's time that she stopped searching for who's to blame or what went wrong
Am                      G                 F                               E
The only thing for certain is he's gone, she's got to move on


         F                                       G                      E
Am
Then the door was slammed like thunder, and the tears they fall like rain
             F                         G                  E          Am
And the warnings from her family whirl like a hurricane
               F                   G                    E
Am
Oh she's drowning in emotions but she cannot reach the shore
        F                        E                 Am
She's alive but can she survive the Storm

B                                     G
Someday days just roll on by without a gray cloud in the
Am                                       F                  G
sky, she keeps telling herself "I will make it on my own" and her
B                                                      G
Friend's they've all gone back to their lives thinking she will be all
Am                                       F                       E
right as she races through the night to make it home


        F                                G                      E
Am
And the door it slamms like thunder, and the tears they fall like rain
             F                        G                E               Am
And the warnings from her family whirl like a hurricane
               F               G                        E
Am
Oh she's drowning in emotions but she cannot reach the shore
          F                        E                Am
She's alive but can she survive  The Storm

Am                        G       Am                         G
She sits among the pieces of broken glass and photographs
Am                    G        F                           E
Reluctantly releases the last of what was her past
