[VERSE]

C                                    Fmaj7
Where were you when I was burned and broken,
          Am               G              F
While the days slipped by, from my window watching?
    C                                        Fmaj7
And Where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless?
           Am                     Gadd9             F
Beause the things you say and the things you do surround me
               Am7                 F
While you were hanging yourself on someone else's words,
Am                           Bb
Dying to believe in what you heard,
Am7           Gsus4             G       Csus2
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Csus2               Fsus2           F 
Lost in thought and lost in time,
          Am                    G5                   F
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
   Csus2         C             Fsus2
Outside the rain fell dark and slow,
        Am               G                          Fsus2
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
         Am                        Fsus2
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
           Am              Bbsus2
I knew the moment had arrived
    Am                   Gsus4             Csus2
For killing the past and coming back to life

About the artist behind Coming Back To Life:

Pink Floyd are an English rock band that initially earned recognition for their psychedelic or space rock music, and, as they evolved, for their progressive rock music. They are known for philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, innovative cover art, and elaborate live shows. One of rock music's most successful acts, the group have sold over 200 million albums worldwide[1][2] including 74.5 million albums in the United States alone.[3]

Pink Floyd had moderate mainstream success and were one of the most popular bands in the London underground music scene in the late 1960s as a psychedelic band led by Syd Barrett; however, Barrett's erratic behaviour eventually forced his colleagues to replace him with guitarist and singer David Gilmour. After Barrett's departure, singer and bass player Roger Waters gradually became the dominant and driving force in the group in the late-1970s, until his eventual departure from the group in 1985. The band recorded several albums, achieving worldwide success with The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), and The Wall (1979). In 1985, Waters declared Pink Floyd "a spent force", but the remaining members, led by Gilmour, continued recording and touring under the name Pink Floyd. Although they were unsuccessfully sued by Waters for rights to the name, they again enjoyed worldwide success with A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987) and The Division Bell (1994). Eventually they reached a settlement out of court with Waters allowing them use of the name. Waters performed with the band for the first time in 24 years on 2 July 2005 at the London Live 8 concert.
