Chords (Chorus):

Verse 1

 It’s no problem

 It’s all fine, it’s quite alright

They will understand I mean it well

Given some time

Verse 2

Just a white lie
Truth withheld, means to an end
Need a problem solved, a helping hand
So draw the line

Pre-Chorus 1

Again again again again again

The same

Fault in our


Chorus 1

We dance, we lie, we break
We do this all a thousand times

Explain it all away – the
Misleading words spit from our mouths we

Keep our wrongs at bay

But it’s not okay

A small leak will grow, a mistake will sow

Bb*/C  C/B  Bb*/A
Pebbles in rivers __

Soon rock the world with their waves


Same as intro.

Verse 3

Why not start now
Why not take the first step leading there
Every day a stone to stack and stall
Soon builds a wall

Verse 4

Get the rivers flowing
Even subtle streams are always going
To a common goal a larger whole
Without the need for greed to push underneath

Pre-Chorus 2

Again again again again again
You can _
Choose to be more

Chorus 2

We hide, we steal, we crave
We do this all a thousands times, we

Seal our hearts away – the
Lives ruined to keep dignity, we

Only look ahead
At most a day

But a seed will grow, even small stars they glow
Pebbles in rivers __
Soon overflow our brick walls and they cannot be stopped

Intermezzo (repeat 4x)

Dm*  Bb*/A  Bb*
Oeh __

Bridge 1

Dm*   Bb*/A       Bb*
Remember days when we would share a bed
Whenever we were cold

Remember weeks when we just did not speak
For reasons that we lost

Remember months when you’d raise me up
When I just could not hold

Dm*Bb*/A       Bb*
Onto something and keep flowing along

  Bb*/A   Bb*/G
Every day a little harder

Bridge 2 (higher voice)

Remember every time you’d tell me off
For something that’s not wrong

Remember every lecture lacking love
When I just wanted hope

Remember ever present need to shine
Any step would’ve been fine

How could you wonder what made me what I am
Every day a little cruel

Chorus 3

We sleep, we dream, we wake
We do this all a thousand times, each

Day a brand new slate – to be
Thankful, fearful, or cower and wait

Don’t let the moment pass
Make them all last

Small step’s a jump, ev’ry creation a bump
Pebbles in rivers __
Can somehow lead to an architecture to behold


Oeh __
