How to play "Brick By Brick" on piano, originally by Kendra Dantes


Here are all the notes, chords, lyrics, lead sheets and chord charts you could want to play this awesome song just like Kendra...

Inspired to write an original song for the second time by one of my favorite books by Leigh Bardugo’s, “Crooked Kingdom”. The first song inspired by her books was my original song “Forgiveness”. Apparently, there was still more in me!

Each of these 2 songs is written through a different character perspective. I rarely write 2 songs about one book, but that’s just how good I think this book series is, Leigh Bardugo is an amazing author.

Lyrics for this original song:

Skin to skin, wearing thin, can’t catch my breath in the waves
Drowning slow, nowhere to go, lost in the mess that you made
All the fear, can’t be near when all I can think of’s the past
Out of air, no one cared, I knew I wouldn’t last

You brought me down brick by brick
You and your crown, you make me sick
You took away the good in my life, killing me slow from the inside
Revenge, can’t avenge, now I’m crawling in the dirt
Brick by brick (x2)

Monsters, and beasts, never sleep, dreaming of the cold
Haunted by you, all these cruel memories, I’ve never told

You brought me down brick by brick
Hunger and a dark soul; those shark eyes
Vulnerability eats away inside
People believe what the wanna hear, they want to be rich
But there are those deep wounds that can’t be stitched
