Capo 2

C Em Dm G

CSupposedly it was a wise wise man
Emwho said it’s better to have loved and lost
Dm GThan never to have loved at all, never to have loved.
CHow many times does the truth that you take to be true
EmIs just truth falling apart at the same speed as you
DmUntil it all comes away in a million degrees
GAnd you’re just a few pieces of fallin’ debris
C Am DmAnd she’s hopeful. Hopeful. For me.
G7I’m coming out of the dark clouds
CShe went away and she packed all her lovin’
EmI could not believe it how little there was
DmI stood in the cold kitchen with nothin’ to say
GWho’d keep the whole world spinning when she went away yeah?
CShe kept telling me about the good things I deserve
EmThat I wanted somebody I’d mistaken for her
DmBut one look in my eyes and she’d know she was wrong
GSo she wouldn’t look back at me until she was gone
CHow many times did you give all your love
EmAnd find out it was so far from far from enough?
DmI followed her out into the street in the rain
GAnd the whole world stopped spinning and just went up in flames
C Am G7And she’s hopeful. Hopeful. For me.
GI’m coming out of the dark clouds
C Am G7 She’s hopeful. Hopeful, for me.
GShe says it to me often
C Em Dm G G7
CThe sunlight corroded and the days started to fail
EmThe rocks in the road sharpened shadows to nails
DmThe fencepost were empty and so were the trees
GHad the bluebird of use on its’ last tune for me
CI’ve seen her around now with someone new I don’t know
EmShe likes greed-eyed boys who are haloed in hope
DmBut I know the look in his eyes and I know all the old signs
GJust a couple more curves before his own road unwinds
CThese days I’m feelin’ better about the man that I am
EmThere’s some things I can change and there’s others I can’t
DmI met someone new now I know I deserve
GI never met someone who loves the world more than her
CShe has been through her own share of hard times as well
EmAnd she has learned how to tear out the heaven from hell
DmMost nights I’m alright still all rocks roll down hill
GBut she says I’ll get better, she knows that I will
C Am G7And she’s hopeful. Hopeful, for me
GI’m coming out of the dark clouds
C Am G7 She’s hopeful. Hopeful, for me
GComin’ out of the dark clouds, Comin out of the dark clouds
C Am Dm G G7
CThe word is as the world is
Em Dm G G7Everybody’s gonna hurt like hells some times
CThe word is as the world is
Em Dm G Everybody’s gonna hurt like hells some times some times
C Am Dm G G7 C
