F C G Am

Verse: 
F     C         G Am 
Blues turn to greys, coloring the sky 
F        C G   Am 
Green fades, covering the lies 
F        C G Am 

Black words, close your eyes 
F        C G Am 
Red scars, trying not to hide 

F C G Am 

F     C G      Am 

Kind words, and talking to the sun 
F     C G      Am 
Sad truths, knowing when to run 
F             C G Am 
Warm nights, looking to the stars 
F                C G     Am 
The world, the world, is in our arms 

Chorus: 
F                                 C G       
Open up your eyes and ears and take a breath 
F                                 C G   
Tear down the castle walls and meet with death 
Am         F C                G   
Oh, oh oh, oh oh oh, oh ohoh 4x 

Verse: 
F      C G   Am 

Soft words, you can't understand 
F     C         G Am 
Just out, of reach, an open hand 
F           C G             Am 
Slow change, following the wind 
F              C G           Am 
Our lives, our lives, they will begin.  

Chorus: 
F                                 C G       

Open up your eyes and ears and take a breath
F                                 C G   
Tear down the castle walls and meet with death 
Am         F C                G   
Oh, oh oh, oh oh oh, oh ohoh 4x

F   C           G 
Blue turns to grey

    I really like your song! The only thing I can think of is perhaps adding a few more words in the first verse, cuz there is a long gap in between the two parts of each line. Good luck!
