Emily Plazek – The Chords Strike lyrics

Found my old songs today
A library full of old words I'd say
Remembered all I saw
Suddenly fire lit this heart raw

Spanish streets, American rush
Forests, valleys, hollow's hush
Those places, remember you now
Something died and remained there somehow

And the chords strike
The chords strike
The chords

And I had to say goodbye for me to say hello
To this new life without that pain I'd known
I left them all behind, I left those parts to die
Because I knew if I said goodbye
Then I could choose new life
And the chords strike
The chords strike
The chords strike

Look at all I wrote
How I bled, oh how I choked
Strings play the background now
They're growing and soon they will drown

Knew I found my way out,
Rewrote every line and doubt
But I loved each of my songs
The rivers that pulled me along

And the chords strike
The chords strike
The chords

And I had to say goodbye for me to say hello
To this new life without that pain I'd known
I left them all behind, I left those parts to die
Because I knew if I said goodbye
Then I could choose new life
And the chords strike
The chords strike
The chords strike
