Deeper than love

INTRO (CHORUS bassline)

VERSE
C                     Am
After our life together
F                      G
We don't need to speak

To say what we're thinking
Or know what we need

What started as love
Has gone far above

Into something we can live with
Something that lasts

BRIDGE
F
Love is a feeling
Am
It comes and it goes
F
Ebbs and it flows
G
Everyone knows

F
That it dims and it glows
Am
Hides and then shows
F
Speeds and it slows
G
And it shrinks and it grows
...
But what we have is...

CHORUS x2
C                       Bf
.......Deeper than love
                  Bm
Deeper than love
                    Am
Deeper than love
                    F
Deeper than love, love, love

VERSE
I need you baby
Like I need the air

I know I can rely on you
You're always there

We haven't stayed the same
No we have both changed

But we worship good qualities
And that's why we're strong

BRIDGE + CHORUS

MIDDLE
Am                   F
Rises with reasons
C                    G
Changes with seasons

Grows when you're pleasing
Then gives way to demons

2x instrumental

BRIDGE + CHORUS

Background worry

CHORUS
A
Background worry
F#m
Going on
D                      A
All are always craving

A
Urges
F#m
Or aversions
D
For different things
E
Different versions
A
All just worry

VERSE
F#m
Take some time everyday
A
To turn your attention that
D
And bring some peace
A
Back to your life

F#m
If it's impossibly hard
A
Then you'll see that you're scarred
D
From all of the stress
E
You've built up

CHORUS
Background worry
In my brain
Mental radiation

Where to go
What to eat
Who to call
Who to meet
Background worry

[INSTRUMENTAL]
A+ F#m x4
D E

CHORUS
Background worry
Holding on
The teacher is Anicca

In the future
Or the past
Even now
Nothing lasts
Background worry

VERSE
All my ideas
Are just cravings I fear
Before I thought they were wonderful things

Now I see them in light
I have a heavy hindsight
All of the tension they bring

CHORUS
Background worry
Just desire
Wanting something different

In my way
At my speed
Disappointment
Misery
Background worry

INSTRUMENTAL (Same)

The Nothing

The nothing

VERSE
Am
The nothing made you
F
The nothing made me
Dm
Nothing’s in everything
E
Forever will be

The nothing is living
Here and perceiving
The nothing is knowing
The spell that it’s weaving

The nothing is here
Calling your name
Next to the door
Out of the game

BRIDGE
Dm             E
Stillness speaks

CHORUS
I wanna be lightning
I wanna be rain
Never reborn
Ever again

I wanna be oceans
The spectrum of light
Feel the whole
Finally unite

VERSE
The nothing is solid
It is complete
As light as the air
Beneath your feet

The nothing it feels
Pain when you lie
And suffers your tears
Whenever you cry

We are the cycle
But live in denial
Fuelling the endless
Death and revival

CHORUS

MIDDLE
F
But it’s the wanting
                                  Am
That tightens the chains

It's the one thing
That makes this a cage

Dm                 F
Here in heaven
Dm                    E
The entrance price
              F     E          Am
Is to be blind in paradise

CHORUS


This place is making me crazy

This place is making me crazy

(Capo 3rd)

Bpm 160

VERSE
Em
I can’t live in this place
F
It makes me crazy
C
All are wild with naked greed
G                         F                                       C
To which somehow it seems that we have all agreed

I can’t live in a city
It makes me crazy
Overcrowded, poisoned air
Frowning face’s surrounding me everywhere

I can’t live with a job
It makes me crazy
Sold myself, get paid in stress
Now what I have left of my life’s worth so much less

CHORUS
E
When there's so much confusion
Bf
And so much is wrong
A
And so many people
Bf
Then I must be strong

E
When so much is wasted
Bf
And there's so much of strife
A               Bf             Em

I need to change my life

VERSE
I can’t live in a house
It makes me crazy
Even though I’ve too much stuff
What I have just never seems to be enough

I can’t live with a woman
They make me crazy
Always complaining, nothing’s right
All I get is criticism every night

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL x3

VERSE
I can’t live with a body
It makes me crazy
Aches and pains and colds and flu
And it never looks the way I want it to

I can’t live with a mind
It makes me crazy
Always talking, never peace
Even meditation gives me no release

(Vibrato)
I can’t live with myself
I make me crazy
Cos after all the things I’ve changed
I myself remain the same
