Chords
Transpose:
Verse 1:
G (hold strings)I tried my best to keep you here
Esus4 GBut it's hard to hold a shadow
G (hold strings)You said goodbye but I couldn't hear
Esus4 GToo busy praying for a miracle
Chorus:
Em Cadd9And you left me on my knees
G DYou just walked out the door
Em Cadd99You didn't even have the decency to intervene
Cadd9 Dwhile I was begging God for
You to love me Verse 2:
Em (hold strings)I prayed about us every night
Esus4 GBoy I know you had to hear me
Em (hold strings)You could've stopped me then and told the truth
Esus4 GBut instead you pulled the pillow over your head
Chorus:
Em Cadd9And you left me on my knees
G DYou just walked out the door
Em Cadd99You didn't even have the decency to intervene
Cadd9 Dwhile I was begging God for
You to love me Bridge: Em, C, G, D
Em C G DYou should've told me it was useless,
That I was praying empty prayers But you hopped in your car, pulled out your keys While you were leaving, I was begging God for you to love me
Em CAnd I know that He had something better to do
G DThan to sit and listen to a broken-hearted fool
Could've been saving the world from a tragedy, But instead He was listening to me I was asking, begging for a sign to bring comfort to this lonely heart of mine But apparently you're not what I need I guess you walking out was Him answering Chorus:
Em Cadd9And you left me on my knees
G DYou just walked out the door
Em Cadd99You didn't even have the decency to intervene
Cadd9 Dwhile I was begging God for
You to love me Verse 1:
G (hold strings)I tried my best to keep you here
Esus4 GBut it's hard to hold a shadow
