Capo 2: in C (D without capo)

Intro: Hold C

Verse 1 (G/B, Am, F, C)
You try your hardest to leave the past alone.
This crooked posture is all you’ve ever known.
It is the consequence of living in between
The weight of family and the pull of gravity.

Chorus: (Am, G, F)
You are so much more than your fathers son.
You are so much more than what Ive become.

Hold C before next Verse
 
Verse 2 (G/B, Am, F, C)
Long before you were born there was light
Hidden deep in these young, unfamiliar eyes.
A million choices, though little on their own,
Become the heirloom of the heaviness you’ve known.

Chorus: (Am, G, F)
You are so much more than your fathers son.
You are so much more than what Ive become,
What Ive become,
What Ive become.

Bridge: (Hold Am before)

Am            G/B
You pressed rewind
             C                  
For the thousandth time
                       F
When the tapes wore through.
 Am         G/B
So you memorized
                     C
Those unscripted lines,
                          F
Desperate for some kind of clue:
Am                       G/B
When the scale tipped,
                C
When you inherited
                                F
A fight that you were born to lose.
Am                 G/B
Its not your fault,
                     C
No, its not your fault,
                            F
I put this heavy heart in you.
C/E                       F
I put this heavy heart in you.

Hold C

Verse 3: (G/B, Am, F, C)
You remind me of who I could have been,
Had I been stronger and braver way back then.
A million choices, though little on their own,
Became the heirloom of the heaviness we’ve known.


End Chorus: (Am, G, F)
You are so much more than your fathers son.
You are so much more than the wars youve won.
You are so much more than your fathers son.
You are so much more than what Ive become.
(Repeat the run)
What I've become(2x)
