INTRO: What’s in parentheses is what’s actually being played, but leaving it out sounds too. If it’s too confusing just pretend the parentheses aren’t there. C (Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C) Am (A5 Am A5 Am) Verse 1: C (Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C) Am Laid our blessings on the ground (A5 Am A5 Am) C The softening of sound (Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C) Am (A5 Am A5 Am) Draws us closed again C (Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C) Am Stay, stay and watch the coals (A5 Am A5 Am) C till they cease to glow (Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C) Am (A5 Am A5 Am) like empty promises CHORUS: C G F C G Why, Why did you go, why did you go away? C G F C G Why, Why did you go, why did you go away? C Baby? C Cmaj7 Am A5 VERSE 2: (Remember Verse 1’s parentheses) C Am There's nothing I can say C Nothing I can do Am To bring you back again C Am This of life I know is true C It's all a falling through Am and so I reach for you CHORUS: C G F C G Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?
