Five Hearts Breaking

Alejandro Escovedo

    E     A     E     A

E
The sky is black, Billy feels bad
A
Today he thinks that he'd be better off dead
E
He hears the pain roaring in his head
A
He'll close his eyes and the world turns red

(hard strummed transition)
| E  A |     | E  A |  

E
Her name was Hope her hair was blacker than the sky
A
She had a smile that made the Devil cry
E
She held is hands, looked him in the eye
A
She said "Believe, Believe and everything will be fine."

| E   B7 |     | E  A |

| E  B7 |
Everything will be all right

| E  A |     | E  A |  

E
Today's the day, you can bet on that
A
I heard her close the door, she ain't looking back
E
A twist of fate or a stroke of luck
A
Well, the answer's over there beyond the wishing well

| E   B7 |     | E  A |

| E  B7 |
Everything will be all right

| E  A |     | E  A |  

Soft intrumental
E     A     E     A

E
Take the fire in your hands 
    A
And place it at her feet
E
Walk upon the mountain 
            A
Then you'll sail across the sea
E
Her eyes are taken from the stars above, 

    A
Her voice is Five Hearts Breaking
| E   B7 |               A
Her voice is Five Hearts Breaking
| E   B7 |
Her voice is Five Hearts Breaking

| E  A |     | E  A |  

E
The skies are fire and he's waiting to die
A
And his heart's as empty as a dead man's eyes
E
She held his hands, looked him in the eye
A
She said "Believe, Believe and everything will be fine."

| E   B7 |                    | E  A |

| E   B7 |                    | E  A |
Everything will be all right
| E   B7 |                    | E  A |
Everything will be all right
| E   B7 |
Everything will be all right
