Hands Like Houses
[Intro]
Dm
 
[Verse 1]
Dm                F
I'm bound up and broken,
                   C
caught out in the open,
               Gm
tape over my mouth,
                      Dm
with so much left unsaid.
 
                   F
Like gathering thunder,
                    C
we spoke over each other,
                      Gm                    A#
now strangers tied to opposite sides of the bed.
 
[Pre-Chorus]
                   C
You say that I'm careless,
                 Gm
unkind and defensive,
                                              A#
when all I want is someone there to hold me close.
                        C
I don't mean to be heartless,
                 Gm
I'm trying my hardest
to think before I speak, but I'm voiceless
 
[Chorus]
     Dm       F
I'll bide my time,
               C
watch the hurricane blow by
        Gm
and the clouds run dry.
 
     Dm        F
I'll bite my tongue,
                     C
and hold on 'til my hands go numb
        Gm
or the quiet comes.
 
[Interlude]
Dm
 
[Verse 2]
Dm                   F
Soaked through to my skin
                      C
but I don't feel any different.
                 Gm
I'm a shivering mess
                     Dm
of doubt and recklessness.
 
               F
I know it's my fault
                          C
I'm stuck out here in the cold
                      Gm
but it's hard letting go
                      A#
of what I wish you'd said
 
[Interlude]
                         C
cause you told me I'm careless,
                 Gm
unkind and defensive,
when all I want is someone there to hold me close.
 
[Chorus]
     Dm       F
I'll bide my time,
               C
watch the hurricane blow by
        Gm
and the clouds run dry.
 
     Dm        F
I'll bite my tongue,
                     C
and hold on 'til my hands go numb
        Gm
or the quiet comes.
 
[Bridge]
A#                   Dm
Don't tell me I'm broken,
                        F
(as I'm blowing out to sea)
                  C
Don't leave me high and dry.
                    A#
(It's swirling over me,)
 
                  Dm
as I spin in slow motion
                      F
(a tide of chattering teeth.)
          C
Unravel and unwind.
 
[Calm part]
Dm A#
 
Dm                              A#
White-knuckled, nails torn from grasping the boards
       Dm                    A#
as the storm rages inside of me.
 
Dm                        A#
Opened my mouth, tried to force something out,
        Dm                    A#
but I'm just too exhausted to speak.
 
[Interlude]
Dm
 
[Chorus]
     Dm       F
I'll bide my time,
               C
watch the hurricane blow by
        Gm
and the clouds run dry.
 
     Dm        F
I'll bite my tongue,
                     C
and hold on 'til my hands go numb
        Gm
or the quiet comes.
 
[Chorus]
     Dm       F
I'll bide my time,
               C
watch the hurricane blow by
        Gm
and the clouds run dry.
 
     Dm        F
I'll bite my tongue,
                     C
and hold on 'til my hands go numb
        Gm
or the quiet comes.
