verse1 -- (played with fig.1 until ...I can't mention)
       (D)                                     (G)  (D)
It's hard to rely on my good intentions
                 (D)                                              (G) (D)
when my head's full of things that I can't mention
        G (played with fig. 3)
(it) Seem's I usually get things right
                             D       G D
But I can't understand what I did last night

verse2:
              D                                            (G)  (D)
and it's hard to rely on my own good senses
                    (D)                                             (G)  (D)
When I've missed so much that requires attention
     G (played with fig.3)
I have to laugh with myself sometimes
                         A7/9  A
and I can see that I'm not blind

CHORUS:
  (A)         D    Em    G
Does little relief
  A                  D    Em    G
Give us reprieve  (o-oh)
A        G           D             Em       A
    For all the things I've left behind
        G    D          A                    (D)   (G)    (D)
I'm positive that I'm not blind

verse 3 (played like verse 1)
I'm not afraid things won't get better
But it feels like this is gone forever
You have to cry with your own good tears
You have to laugh with your own good cheers

verse 4 (played like verse 2)
and it's hard to rely on my good intentions
when my head's full of things that I can't mention
Seem's I usually get things right
But I can't understand what I did last night

Chorus 2:
Does  little relief
Give us reprieve
Imagining the world outside
I'm positive that I'm not blind

bridge:

G                                    A
     I can't be hard on you
(A)                            G
     'Cause you know I've been there too
(G)               Em
     meant a lot of things with you
                  A                           D     Em     G
Whoa-oh Life gives little relief
  A                  D    Em  G   A
Give us reprieve     o-oh
           G        D        Em       A
When everyone is cold outside
      G           D               Em        A
I clench my fists and close my eyes
    G     D           Em         A
Imagining the world outside
      G          D         A                    D    G D      D      G D       D
And I can see that I'm not blind
