Intro - Am  C  F  (x4)

Verse 1

Am                      C                         F
   Pull it out, turn it up, what's your favorite song?
Am                          C                        F
   That's mine, I've been crying to it since I was young
Am                              C                        F
   I know there's someone out there feeling just like I feel
                              G
   I know they're waiting up, I know they're waiting to heal
Am                            C
   And I've been holding my breath
                          F
   Are you holding your breath
    G                            C     G
   For too many years to count?
                       Am        F
   Too many years to count


Chorus

Am          C     F        G
   And we waited for the sirens that never come
Am         C                 F
   And we only write by the moon
     G
   Every word handwritten
Am         C                 F
   And to ease the loss of youth
            G                      Am
   And how many years I've missed you
     C              F
   Pages plead forgiveness
     G
   Every word handwritten 
 

Am   C   F  (x2)


Verse 2 

Am                    C                      F
   Let it out, let me in, take a hold of my hand
Am                               C                           F
   There's nothing like another soul that's been cut up the same
Am                            C                    F
   And did you want to drive without a word in between?
              G                              Am
   I can understand, you need a minute to breathe
                       C          F         G      C              
   And to sew up the seams after all this defeat
G                   Am      F
   All this defeat


Chorus

Am          C     F        G
   And we waited for the sirens that never come
Am         C                 F
   And we only write by the moon
     G
   Every word handwritten
Am         C                 F
   And to ease the loss of youth
            G                      Am
   And how many years I've missed you
     C              F
   Pages plead forgiveness
     G
   Every word handwritten 


Bridge/Outro - C / Am / G / F  (x2)

C               Am        G            F
   Here in the dark, I cherish the moonlight
C          Am            G             F             C
   I'm in love with the way you're in love with the night
            Am           G       F       C    Am    G    F
   And it travels from heart to limb to pen

C                 G                         Am
   And we waited for the sirens that never come
                             F
   And we only write by the moon

   Every word handwritten (starting here, simply repeat C/G/Am/F )
   Every word handwritten

   And with this pen, I thee wed
   From my heart to your distress

                   C <----------- Ending on a final strum of C
   Every word handwritten
