m    G    F     Am    G    F

                   C                          Am                       
There is a way that subtle changes come to stay 
             F                         Am
Barely noticed, hardly known
                             C          Am
One day you'll say my situation's locked away 
             F                                 Am
But by tomorrow you're all alone 
                      C                          F                   Am
It seems so sudden, but it's not, it's only grown 
              C                       G                     F                         Am
From a seed that long ago was left forgotten in the snow 
                    C                         F                        Am
And has a way with slow surprises all its own 

                      C                        Am                         
It's hard to show, but like a boulder rollin' slow 
        F                                 Am
Or a rumble deep in the ground 
                            C                         Am
Things whisper low and by the time I really know 
                       F                                     Am
What's been movin' they've settled down 
       C                         F                      Am
Too late to see the way they shift around 
    C             G                                   F                  Am
Too late to say there's bound to be another way 
        C                            F                        Am
It's all been said and done without a sound  

C G F Am C F Am  
                           C                            Am
This comes to me, and now that I begin to see 
              F                                   Am
It's not dramatic, it's nothing grand
                  C                    Am
I used to be half of the whole of you and me 
                       F                 Am
Now I'm the limit of all I am 
                      C                         F                         Am
It seems so simple, nothin' much to under stand 
                       C                              G                  F   Am
You walked out and closed the door, said I don't live here anymore Am
                 C                           F                      Am
And now nothin's hangin' heavy in my hands 
           C                            F                  Am
Now nothin's hangin' heavy in my hands
           C           Am
In my hand  in my hands
F                            Am
Nothin's hanging heavy in my hands
