Tabbed by: George Gonzalez

D		A	D		A
Well this is just a simple song

D		A	D		A
To say what you've done

D		A	D		A
I told you about all those fears

D			A	D
And the way they did run

		  A	        G
Your show must be strong


And you feel like an ocean

			       D	A D	A D
They'd want by the sun



D		A	D		A
When I was just 9 years old

D		A	D		A
I swear that I dreamt

D		A	D		A
Your face on a football field

D		A	D
And a kiss that I kept

	    A   G
Under my vest

					   D
Apart from everything but the heart in my chest




Bm		  D				 G
I know that things can really get rough


When you go it alone

Bm           D			        G
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough


To play like a stone

Bm                         D			         G
Could be there's nothing else in our lives


So critical


As this little hole




D		A	D		A
My life in an upturned boat

D		A	D		A
Marooned on a cliff

D		A	D		A
You brought me a great big flood

D		A	D
And you gave me a lift

	     A	G
To care, what a gift


And you tell me with your tongue


And you're breath was in my lungs

				   Bm
And you float over the rift




		  D				 G
I know that things can really get rough


When you go it alone

Bm	       D                                   G
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough


To play like a stone

Bm			  D				G
Could be there's nothing else in our lives


So critical


As this little hole

D		A	D		A
Well this'll be a simple song

D		A	D		A
To say what you've done

D		A	D		A
I told you about all those fears

D			A	D
And the way they did run

		      A	        G
Your show must be strong


And you feel like an ocean

			       D
They'd want by the sun





Bm		   D				     G
Remember walking a mile to your house


A glow in the dark

Bm	       D			      G
I made a fumbly play for your heart


And the extra, a spark

Bm		     D				     G
You're are a trauma, a chain that I stole


Especial for you

Bm		     D					G
Love's just a delicate thing that we'd do


We've nothing to prove

					D
Which I never knew
