Intro [ C G Am G F ]

Verse 1 [ Am G C F Am G F ]

Am
on the edges of the sharpest knives
G
in the middle of the darkest nights
C
always knew that i would find you here
F
in a puddle of the bravest tears
Am
i've seen enough to know
     G                F
it's lonely where you are


Prechorus 1 [ C F G ]

C                     F
above the crowd, feet dangling
       G
from a rooftop
               C
she waits from ledges
      F                 G
for a voice to talk her down


Chorus 1 [ C G Am G F ]

and nothing matters but the
C
pain when you're alone
                 G
the never-ending nights

when you're awake
            Am
when you're praying
     G              F
that tomorrow it's ok

there will be a time to
C
crack another smile
            G
maybe not today or for awhile
          Am
but we're holding on to
G             F
laugh again someday

laugh again someday


Verse 2 [ Am G C F Am G F ]

Am
all that matters is the time we had
G
doesn't matter how it all went bad
C
never wonder what it might be like
F
shut the door, say goodbye
Am
when faced with tragedy
G                       F
we come alive or come undone


Prechorus 2 [ C F G ]

           C
don't look back
       F                 G
let it shape you like an ocean
         C
even the deepest scars
F            G
in time will fade


Chorus 2 [ C G Am G F ]


and nothing matters but the
C
pain when you're alone
       G
or the nights when your awake
Am             G            F
praying that tomorrow it's ok

there will be a time
   C
to crack another smile
            G
maybe not today or for awhile
          Am
but we're holding on
   G             F
to laugh again someday
          Am
but we're holding on
   G             F
to laugh again someday


Post-Chorus [ C F Am G C F G F ]

C G

    C                 F
sometimes you have to go back
   Am                       G
to know just where you have been
          C
but we're old enough
   F
to know that
     G
what has been will be again
     F
and again


Bridge [ F G Am C F G ]

G Am C F G Am C

        F          G
and the bravest of faces
        Am            C
are the ones where we fake it
       F             G
in the roles that we play


Chorus 3 [ C G Am G F ]

but nothing matters when
    C
the pain is all but gone
             G
when you are finally awake
            Am           G
despite the overwhelming odds;
         F
tomorrow came

and when they see
    C
you crack a smile
          G
and you decide to stay awhile
          Am
you'll be ready then
          F
to laugh again

nothing matters but the pain
C
we are tragedy
G
we are sympathy
Am      G                F
you see what you want to see
C
we are misery
G
and distant memories
Am         G               F
but we all learn to laugh again
