better that would be awesome!

I guess I should have looked it over better. It goes C Am F G C throughout the verses. The A on the second verse should be an Am.

The second "I'm afraid that the ones that I love won't have enough" should end with a C, not an Am.

The last line, "I am a knife." The Am and A shouldn't be selected as chords. Ignore that.
