I figured it out from watching him play it at a show. CHORDS: (all of them are played this way throughout the entire song) C/G x G x F x G7 x Amin x D7 x D x Emin 0 x x x x 1 x x 0 0 0 2 0 2 5 4 0 2 0 3 3 2 4 5 2 3 2 3 2 0 5 5 2 3 3 x 3 x x x 0 C/G G F The rain, it started tapping on the window near my bed. There was a loophole G7 Amin in my dreaming, so I got out of it. And to my surprise my eyes were wide and F D7 D already open. Just my nightstand and my dresser where those nightmares had just been. C/G G F So I dressed myself and left them, out into the gray streets. But everything G7 Amin seemed different and completely new to me. The sky, the trees, F D7 houses, buildings, even my own body. And each person I encountered, I D couldn't wait to meet. C/G G And I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health. I said "there is F G7 nothing that I can do for you that you can't do for yourself." He said "Oh Amin F D7 yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that would help." So I sat with him D a while and then I asked him how he felt. F Emin Amin F Emin Amin F Emin Amin He said, "I think I'm cured. No, in fact, I'm sure. Thank you stranger, for G your therapeutic smile." (Play through verse progression once) C/G G F So that is how I learned the lesson that everyone is alone. And your eyes G7 Amin must do some raining if you ever want to grow. But when crying don't help F D7 and you can't compose yourself, it's best to compose a poem, an honest verse D of longing or a simple song of hope. C/G G And that's why I'm singing, "Baby,don't worry, cause now I got your back. F And every time you feel like crying, G7 Amin I'm gonna try and make you laugh. But if I can't, if it just hurts too bad, F D7 then we will wait for it to pass, and I will keep you company through those D C/G G days so long and black. And we'll just keep working on the problem we know F G7 we'll never solve, of Love's uneven remainder, our lives are fractions of a Amin F whole." But if the world could remain within a frame like a painting on a D7 D wall. Then I think we would see the beauty then. We would stand staring in awe F Emin Amin F Emin Amin F Emin Amin at our still lives posed like a bowl of oranges, like a story told by the G G7 fault lines and the soil. (Play through verse progression once more and end on a C)
