A young tree bearing fruit

Place to start

Don't hide behind your heart

[Verse 2]
      Am 
Dear lover
                                   F 
You can find me on the front lines covered
                          C
In the blood and tears of another
                 G
Brother, sister, mother
                                             
Revolutions being broadcast on Facebook and Twitter
          Am
There's a noise
                                 F
I can hear it when the megaphone roars
                                  C 
Wipe the tears from this tear gas choice
                                                     G
Stand in front of your fear, baby, time to find your voice

A love story

It's a story
        F
A love story
       C                                G
How vain are we to expect a happy ending?
               Am
I got my hands up
                                   F
Follow directions still they shoot us
                                   C
I'm fucking sick and tired of no justice
 
No peace
                                                G
Promise me I'll never pick your body off the streets
                       Am
We're all taking heat here 
                       F
We're all taking heat here
             C                         G                 
The trust is broken I don't get these police
        Am                        F
Disenfranchised step in to a new life
                C                             G
Maybe if you listen to the wind there's a war cry
          Am
Peace in America
          F
Peace in America
          C
Be decent America
            G
I'm begging you



[Pre-Chorus]
       F    C     G
What I see, in you
F        G           C      
A young tree bearing fruit
F     C   G
Place to start
F           G            C
Don't stand behind your heart



[Chorus]
F             G        C
You gotta put down the weight
F             G           C
You gotta get out of your way
F             G        C
You gotta put down the weight
F             G           C
You gotta get out of your way
