Becomes Unstoppable EP

Capo 5

 
C, 
 
D, 
 
C, 
 
D, 

C 
I’m alone in my room for the  
D 
first time in years,
C 
and as I close my eyes, the only  
D 
thing I hear,
 
is the  
C 
sound of the girl next  
D 
door, 
 
singing
G 
.


C 
Outside, there are racketeers  
D 
selling 
 
souvenirs,
 
t-
Em 
shirts that read “The end of the  
G 
world 
 
nears.”
 
and  
C 
in between their screams and the  
D 
echoes in the street
 
is the  
C 
sound of the girl next  
D 
door, singing  
G 


 
Singing:  
C 
Goldenheart, 
 
 
D 
don’t let me down
 
Singing: I  
Em 
need you,  
G 
I need you around
 
Singing:  
C 
You fit me,
D 
so perfect  
Em 
ly 
 
 
G 
 
Me,  
C 
and the girl next  
D 
door, singing  
G 


 
All the  
C 
heads of state are meeting, making  
D 
speeches, signing treaties,
 
while in the city,  
Em 
peace is sold in pieces, as the  
G 
people are sleeping,
 
only  
C 
listening to the sound of their own,  
D 
hearts, 
 
beating,
 
not the  
C 
sound of the girl next  
D 
door, singing  
G 


 
And artists  
C 
locked inside creating, in their  
D 
basements, sculpting, painting,
 
chasing the  
Em 
beauty they’re gestating, when all  
G 
I’m 
 
appreciating
 
is the  
C 
inspiration fading from a  
D 
voice that I hear wavering
 
in the  
C 
sound of the girl next  
D 
door, singing  
G 


 
Singing:  
C 
Goldenheart, 
 
 
D 
don’t let me down
 
Singing: I  
Em 
need you,  
G 
I need you around
 
Singing:  
C 
You fit me,  
D 
so 
 
perfect
Em 
ly 
 
 
G 
 
Me,  
C 
and the girl next  
D 
door, singing  
G 


 
But will my  
C 
voice ever be loud enough, or my  
D 
words be so clear
 
that the  
Em 
whole world can hear me like I’m  
G 
listening to you here?
 
Can  
C 
one Northern son  
D 
shake awake a nation so numb
 
that we’re  
Em 
hiding in our headphones
 
and we’re  
G 
drowning in our beer, yeah
C 
cowering in fear
 
and  
D 
losing our ability to  
G 
hear?


 
And the  
C 
children on the streets are playing,
 
while the  
D 
killer’s on the corner praying
 
on the  
Em 
weak and the lonely hide in their heads
 
and the brave they die in their beds  
C 
 
and the mad are making their plans  
D 
 
and the rich are washing their hands  
Em 
 
and the bosses crack their whips  
G 
 
while the strippers shake their hips  
C 


 
but I can’t keep a track of it all  
D 
 
cos there’s a voice coming on so strong  
Em 
 
Shaking windows, rattling the walls  
G 
 
It’s the sound of the girl next  
C 
door,
D 
singing 
 
 
G 


 
Singing  
C 
Goldenheart, no,  
D 
don’t let me down
 
Singing I  
Em 
need you, yeah,  
G 
I need you around
 
Singing that you
C 
fit me,  
D 
so perfectly  
Em 
G 
Me, 
 
 
C 
and the girl next  
D 
door, singing  
G
