Intro: G B7 Em C D

Verse 1:
G          B7                Em        C
I tried to write a song, and keep it 3 minutes long
G                  B7            Em  C  D
Get in, get out, nobody gets hurt
G          B7            Em            C
I tried a thousand times  to fit God between the lines
         G                B7                Em   C
But I'm finding out that doesn't really work


Pre-Chorus:
  D5                  Cadd9               C/B            Am7
I just don't have the words to say 'cause words only get in my way


Chorus:
G      Am7        C          D
I must apologize, I have the hardest time
G           Am7        C               D
Finding something to define a God that I cant define
G        Am7         C        D            Am7  Em7
And even if I could, it would take way too long
   C#m
If all I've got's a 3 minute song
G   B7   Em   C   D


Verse 2:
G (pwr)            B (pwr)      Em           C
I've got a hundred metaphors, and if I had a million more
        G (pwr)    B (pwr)          Em   C   D
I could never ever seem to sum this up
         G            B7     Em            C
Besides, how can some melody   communicate eternity? 
         G                 B7           Em   C 
Its like trying to fit the ocean in a cup


Pre-Chorus:
     D5                  Cadd9               C/B            Am7
I'll never have the words to say, cause words only get in my way


Chorus:
G      Am7        C          D
I must apologize, I have the hardest time
G           Am7        C               D
Finding something to define a God that I cant define
G        Am7         C        D            Am7  Em7
And even if I could, it would take way too long
   C#m                     Em
If all I've got's a 3 minute song


Bridge:
Em           Emm               E0                   A*   Asus4* C(pwr)*
     I would like to dumb this down to 3 chords, or maybe 4
         C                                                     C#m
But I've tried and I can't and I won't cause You'll always be more


G      Am7     C   C#m 
So I apologize,
G                 Am7          C   C#m
  I can't seem to get it right       OH!


Chorus:
G      Am7        C          D
I must apologize, I have the hardest time
G           Am7        C               D
Finding something to define a God that I cant define
G        Am7         C        D            Am7  Em7
And even if I could, it would take way too long
   C#m
If all I've got's a 3 minute song

G   Am7   C                   D             
          All I've got's this 3 minute song
G                        Am7   C
That's just not that long

C#m  C#m2  C#m3   C#m2   C#m
Oh   Oh    Oh     Oh     OOOOOOOOHHH!
