Lyrics

Tornado

Written By: Neil Johnstone

Tornado
INTRO
Dm - A/F - Bb - C

Dm A/F
She is the picture of
Bb C Dm A/F Bb C
Perfection and the way that love should go, you know
Dm A/F
She’s a tornado,
Bb C Dm A/F Bb C
Disaster follows her wherever she goes
Dm A/F
She talks a big game but she can’t back it up
Bb C
Nothing really changes when there’s nothing but dust
Dm A/F Bb C
Everything’s the same, she’s still looking to place the blame on
Dm A/F Bb C
The very first person that she sees, I just pray that it’s not me
Dm A/F Bb C
She can be so mean

F A
Sometimes
F A
Give it time
Bb
And I can see
G
Everything you want to be
F A
Give it time
F A
And I
Bb
I can see
G
Everything you want of me

Dm A/F
She is so lyrical
Bb C Dm A/F Bb C
More like a chemical in my bloodstream, can’t you see?
Dm A/F
It’s so physical
Bb C Dm A/F Bb C
It’d take a miracle just to make me believe
Dm A/F
We’re not burning up the world but we’re doing okay
Bb C
Lately we’ve been thinking about turning the page
Dm A/F Bb C
But everywhere I turn, leads right back to you and
Dm A/F
We’ll probably never make it because it’s never enough
Bb C
Living in a circle and forgetting the stuff
Dm A/F Bb C
That time after time, helped to make it through

F A
Sometimes
F A
Give it time
Bb
And I can see
G
Everything you want to be
F A
Give it time
F A
And I
Bb
I can see
G
Everything you want of me

--VS--
SOLO

F A
Sometimes
F A
Give it time
Bb
And I can see
G
Everything you want to be
F A
Give it time
F A
And I
Bb
I can see
G
Everything you want
Bb G
Everything you want
Bb G
Everything you want of me
