INTRO:

      G*   D*   Em*   C*   Cmaj   C*     x4

VERSE 1:

             Cmaj              Gmaj             D         Cmaj
      Some mornings I pray for evening, for the day to be done.

             Cmaj        Gmaj            D
      Some summer days I hide away, and wait for rain to come.

              Cmaj                 Gmaj          D                Cmaj
      Cos' it turned out hell will not be found, Within the fires below.

             Cmaj          Gmaj                          D             
      But in making do and muddling through, When you've nowhere else to go.

CHORUS:

                 C**       G**       D**
      But then I remem ------ ber       you,

              C**                Cadd9*           D**
      And the way you shine like truth in all you do.

                 C**       G**      D**
      And if you remem ------ bered     me,
               
                C**              Cadd9*         D**
      You could save me from the way I tend to be,


      The way I tend to be.

FILL:

      G*   D*   Em*   C*   Cmaj   C*     x2

VERSE 2:

      Some days I wake up dazed my dear, and I don't know where I am.

      I've been running now so long I'm scared, I've forgotten how to stand.

      And I stand around in airport bars, and gather thoughts to think:
    
      That if all I had was one long road, it could drive a man to drink.

CHORUS:

      But then I remem ------ ber you,

      And the way you shine like truth in all you do.

      And if you remem ------ bered me,

      You could save me from the way I tend to be.

BRIDGE:

               Am          G       Cmaj    Dsus2           Em          A*       Gmaj
      Because I've said I love you so many times that the words kinda die in my mouth.

            Am            G              Cmaj       Dsus2    Em         A*          Gmaj
      And I meant it each time with each beautiful woman but somehow it never works out.

          Am        G        Cmaj         Dsus2          Em            A*            Gmaj
      But you stood apart in my calloused heart, and you taught me and here's what I learned:

           Am      G             Cmaj        Dsus2    Em       A*          Gmaj
      That love is about all the changes you make and not just three small words.

PRE-CHORUS:

                 C**~     G**~   D**~
      And then I catch    my ------ self,

      C**~              Cadd9*~          D**
          Catching your scent on someone else,

           C**~         G**~   D**~
      In a crowd ------ ed        space,

             C**                Cadd9*           D**
      And it takes me somewhere I cannot qui --- te place.


CHORUS:

      But then I remem ------ ber you,

      And the way you shine like truth in all you do.

      And if you remem ------ bered me,

      You could save me from the way I tend to be,

      The way I tend to be.

      G*   D*   Em*   C*   Cmaj   C*

      G*   D*   Em*   C*   Cmaj   C* 
      be ---------       The way I tend to be.
