After All C (add G) Fmaj7 go ahead, push your luck, find out how much love the world can hold, Dm7 F G C G once upon a time i had control, and reigned my soul in tight. C (add G) Fmaj7 well the whole truth, it's like the story of a wave unfurled, Dm7 but i held the evil of the world, F G so i stopped the tide, froze it up from inside, C (add G) Fmaj7 and it felt like a winter machine that you go through and then, Dm7 you catch your breath and winter starts again, F G C G and everyone else is spring bound. C (add G) Fmaj7 and when i chose to live, there was no joy, it's just a line i crossed Dm7 it wasn't worth the pain my death would have cost F G C G so i was not lost or found. C (add G) Fmaj7 and if i was to sleep, i knew my family had more truth to tell. Dm7 and so i traveled down a whispering well, F G C G to know myself through them. C (addG) Fmaj7 growing up, my mom had a room full of books, and hid away in there, Dm7 her father raging down a spiral stair, F G till he found someone, most days his son, C (add G) Fmaj7 and sometimes i think my father, too, was a refugee, Dm7 i know they tried to keep their pain from me, F G C G they could not see what it was for. C (add G) but now i'm sleeping fine, Fmaj7 sometimes the truth is like a second chance, Dm7 i am the daughter of a great romance, F G C G and they are the children of the war. (break) C (addG) Fmaj7 Dm7 F G C G C (add G) Fmaj7 well the sun rose with so many colors, it nearly broke my heart, Dm7 it worked me over like a work of art, F G C G and i was a part of all that. C (add G) Fmaj7 so go ahead push your luck, say what it is you gotta say to me, Dm7 we will push on into that mystery, F G C G and it'll push right back, and there are worse things than that, C (add G) Fmaj7 cause for every price, and every penance that i could think of, Dm7 it's better to have fallen in love, F G C G than never to have fallen at all, C (add G) Fmaj7 cause when you live in a world, well it gets into who you thought you'd be, Dm7 and now i laugh at how the world changed me, F G C (add G) Em Am G C( add G) G C(add G) i think life chose me after all.
