The Breath You Take   Intro.:  | (Bm)  | (G)  | (Bm)  | (A)  |
(Bm)He looks up from second base, (G)dad's up in the stands
He (Bm)saw the hit, the run, the slide, there (G)ain't no bigger fan
In the (Em)parkin' lot after the game
He said (F#m)"Dad I thought you had a plane to catch?" (G)
He smiled and said "Yeah son, I did (A)

But life's not the (D)breath you take, the breath-(Em)in' in and out
That gets you (Bm) through the day, ain't what it's (A)all about
You just might (G)miss the point tryin' to (Bm)win the race
Life's not the (Em)breaths you take
But the (A)moments that take your breath away (D)  | (Em)  | (A) ---

Fast (Bm)forward fifteen years and a (G)thousand miles away
Boy's (Bm)built a life, he's got a wife and a (G)baby due today
He (Em)hears a voice sayin' "I made it, son"
Says "I (F#m)told you, Dad, you didn't have to (G)come"
He smiles and says "Yeah, I know you did (A)
But life's not the (D)breath you take, the breath-(Em)in' in and out
That gets you (Bm) through the day, ain't what its (A)all about
You just might (G)miss the point trying to (Bm)win the race
Life's not the (Em)breaths you take
But the (A)moments that take your breath away (G)
Just like it took my (Bm)breath when she was born
Just like it (Em)took my breath away when Dad (A)took his last that morn
Life's not the breath(D) you take, the breath-(Em)in' in and out
That gets you (Bm) through the day, ain't what its (A)all about
Just might (G)miss the point, if you don't slow (Bm)down the pace
Life's not the (Em)breaths you take
But the (A)moments that take your breath away

Outro.:  | (G)  | (Bm) Hmm, | (A)hmm | (D)
