Chords:
Transpose:
[Intro]
G G Bm More so than me, She knows my name
F CAnd more so than me, Understands this pain
G BmI'm either too lost, Or not lost enough
F CI think I'm too smart, For this type of love
G BmI wasn't sent off, But straight to the ground
F C n.c.And I know God best, Is one with no crown
[Verse 1]
GDon't know why the past affects me in this way
BmDon't know where I'll go if I leave here today
FBut I know my limits and you're not the type
CTo be fooling around in this way
GNo reason you're here but there's reasons to stay
BmNot as easy to know as it's easy to say
F'Cause to my family and my friends I can't think of one thing
CThat I gain
[Bridge]
GBut more for me
BmAnd more for me
FMore
CFor me
[Verse 2]
GAge 14 at midnight I hear voices from the kitchen
BmI let my feet follow the sound as I let my ears listen
FI walk upstairs and at the kitchen table I can see
CThat God is sitting with the Devil, sharing drinks and old stories
GThe floorboard creaks a red embarrassment floods all throughout God's face
BmHe swears that it's not what it looks like, then he swears he can explain
FThe Devil speaks, "Your God and I put all our differences to rest
CNow man's actions are his own, but man will blame us nonetheless"
GThe Devil stands, he grabs his keys and straightens out a rusted crown
BmHe tells me, "Hell is frozen over, Heaven burned down to the ground
FAnd you have only got one life, so do with it what you would like
CWe solemnly apologize but we won't be there when you die"
[Chorus]
GAnd I stand cold and alone, in a body that won't move
F#mWatching the eyes of these gods that I once knew
FOne pair looks down in a half-hearted lie while the
COther looks straight into mine with a whole truth
GLacking the fear I've been told that God deserves
F#mI say, "What good is a prayer that goes unheard"
FHe says, "What hope could they find in a book
CIf the book doesn't sell and the pages stay unturned"
[Instrumental] G Bm [Verse 3]
FAnd with a wink, the Devil turns and exits the back door
CAnd God is standing there in silence with his eyes glued to the floor
GBut then he speaks "I am no savior but I give them what they need
BmAnd there has never been a dreamer who prefers reality
FThe war for truth is raging on but it's not one you have to fight
CAnd if it is the truth you want, then it is hope you'll sacrifice
GIt's yours to choose,
BmAnd you can choose
FThis is not the way I am, this is just how I was raised
CSo let me make up my own mind, let me map out my own way
GAnd to the parents of the kids with tongues down in their throats
BmBecause of tears that you will cry if they don't stick to what they know
FI'm sure you're giving it your best, and I am sure it takes a toll
CBut whether God given or not, our lives are not to be controlled
GJust let us choose
[Outro] G Bm F C x3 G
