So here we go... Intro = G G We took a weekend, drove to Provo C -Walk- G The snow was white and fluffy G But a weekend in Utah won't fix what's wrong with us C And the grey sky was vast and real cryptic above me --- D C C -Walk- G I wanted you, to love me like you used to do --- G We took 2 weeks in the Bahamas C Went out dancing every night G Tried to fight the creeping sense of dread with temporal things C D Most of the time I guess I felt alright --- D C D C -Walk- G But I wanted you, to love me like you used to do G C But you cannot run, And you cannot hide G C D G From the wreck we've made of our house, And the mess inside --- G We went down to New Orleans C One weekend in the Spring G Looked hard for what we'd lost C D It was painful to admit it, but we couldn't find a thing --- D C D C -Walk- G And I wanted you, to love me like you used to do --- G Went to New York City in September C Took a train out of Manhattan, to the Grand Army stop G Found that bench we'd sat together on a thousand years ago C D When I felt such love for you I thought my heart was gonna pop --- D C D C -Walk- G D G And I wanted you, to love me like you used to do G C But I cannot run, And I can't hide G C D G From the wreck we've made of our house, And the mess inside --- Outro: G C G C G C D G C D G --- That's it.
