THIN ICE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


INTRO:	Am - Am/G - Am/F - Am/E - Dm - G - Dm - E  [pause]


                Am
        I.      each time you hurt me,
                Am/G
                you give me a choice -
                Am/F          Am/E
                to swallow my pride
                            Dm   -   E
                or raise my voice.
                Am
                the moment soon passes.
                Am/G
                I don't make a fuss.
                Am/F           Am/E
                I don't want a thing
                                Dm   -   G   -   Dm   -  E
                to come between us.
                C
                each little battle,
                Edim
                you think you're the winner.
                Dm               G                 Dm
                the ice that you stand on
                E         Am
                only gets thinner.


		---------REPEAT INTRO ---------


                Am
        II.     the scars that you gave me
                Am/G
                are painfully raw,
                Am/F          Am/E
                my bandage of hay
                                Dm   -   E
                from every last straw.
                Am
                there isn't much more
                Am/G
                of you I can take.
                Am/F        Am/E
                you are the skater,
                         Dm   -   G   -   Dm   -  E
                I am the lake.
                C
                sunshine is broken
                Edim
                by lightning and thunder.
                Dm         G
                ice begins cracking,
                Dm     E       Am   [pause]
                and    you  go under.


INSTRUMENTAL:   Am - Am/G - Am/F - Am/E - Dm - G - Dm - E   [quiet strumming]
                Am - Am/G - Am/F - Am/E - Dm - E  [repeat 3x with guitar solo]
                Am  [quiet strumming, continue under vocal]

                Am
ENDING:         when you stopped breathing
                Am/G
                and you turned blue,
                Am/F    E        Am
                part of me died, too.
