Intro: 

Am C F/C* (2x)
Am G F    (2x)


Verse:

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


Chorus:

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


Verse:

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


Chorus:

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


Bridge:

Am F C G (2x)
Am         F     C             G
Here in the dark, I cherish the moonlight.
Am    F             C              G
I'm in love with the way you're in love with the night.
Am     F           C          G        Am F C G
And it travels from heart, to limb, to pen.  


Outro:

F/C           G                          F/C                        G
And we waited for the sirens that never come.  We only write by the moon,
                  C          G                     Am F/C
With every word handwritten.  Every word handwritten.
     C             G                   Am                  F
And with this pen, I thee wed, From my heart to your distress.
     C             F                   C                   F
And with this pen, I thee wed, From my heart to your distress.
     C             F                   C                   F*(slow) C
And with this pen, I thee wed, From my heart to your distress.
