EVERY BREAKING WAVE
U2
SONGS OF INNOCENCE (2014)


| A | C#m | E | B |
| A | C#m | E | B | B |


A C#m
Every breaking wave on the shore
E B
tells the next one there'll be one more.
A C#m
And every gambler knows that to lose
E B
is what you're really there for.
A C#m
Summer I was fearlessness,
E B
now I speak into an answer phone.
A C#m
Like every falling leaf on the breeze,
E B B
winter wouldn't leave it alone, alone.


A C#m
If you go?
E B
If you go your way and I go mine.
A C#m
Are we so?
E B
Are we so helpless against the tide?
A C#m
Baby every dog on the street
E B
knows that we're in love with defeat.
A C#m
Are we ready to be swept off our feet?
E B A C#m E B
And stop chasing every breaking wave..


A C#m
Every sailor knows that the sea
E B
is a friend made enemy.
A C#m
And every shipwrecked soul knows what it is
E B
to live without intimacy.
A C#m
I thought I heard the captain's voice,
E B
it's hard to listen while you preach.
A C#m
Like every broken wave on the shore,
E B B
this is as far as I could reach..


A C#m
If you go?
E B
If you go your way and I go mine.
A C#m
Are we so?
E B
Are we so helpless against the tide?
A C#m
Baby every dog on the street
E B
knows that we're in love with defeat.
A C#m
Are we ready to be swept off our feet?
E B F#m A E B
And stop chasing every breaking wave..


F#m A
The sea knows where are the rocks, and drowning is no sin.
E B
You know where my heart is, the same place that yours has been.
F#m A E
We know that we fear to win, and so we end before we begin,
B
before we begin..


| A | C#m | E | B |


A C#m
If you go?
E B
If you go your way and I go mine.
A C#m
Are we so?
E B
Are we so helpless against the tide?
A C#m
Baby every dog on the street
E B
knows that we're in love with defeat..
A C#m
Are we ready to be swept off our feet?
E B | A | C#m | E | B F#m |
And stop chasing every breaking wave..


| A | C#m | E | B F#m | End on A |
