Capo: 3rd Fret (1st verse Finger picked)


C                       Am	
Somewhere out there's a dream that's not forgotten
         Fmaj7            G            C
But this world is not for stopping for me
    C                              
And I will try and I will keep on trying, 
    Am
I've set my goals there's no denying
Fmaj7               G            C
Never stop fighting for what I believe

Fmaj7            Am
Many people will come and go
C               G
Many faces long lost you know
Fmaj7        Am
Many fights, many make ups
C            G
Many kisses, too many break ups

Fmaj7  Am  C  G (X 4)

Fmaj7
I got no roots they're not set in stone
Am
I got no place that I call home
C                       G
I'm just a lo-lo-lonely soul

Fmaj7
I got no roots they're not set in stone
Am
I got no place that I call home
C                       G
I'm just a lo-lo-lonely soul


       Fmaj7
And the time will come when the day is done
        Am
And the fighting's over, the race is run
        C                     G
I don't know what I'm looking for
         Fmaj7                                  Am
And this life I lead it's a curious thing but I can't deny the happiness it brings
        C                     G
I don't know what I'm looking for


Fmaj7   Am   C   G
Ooh ooh ooh ..........

Fmaj7 
Many people will come and go
Am                                        C            G
Many faces long lost you know, I'm just a lo-lo-lonely soul

             Fmaj7           
And there'll be many fights, many make ups
Am                                 C            G
Many kisses, too many break ups, a lo-lo-lonely soul

Fmaj7  Am  C   G

Fmaj7 
I got no roots they're not set in stone
Am
I got no place that I call home
           C            G
I'm just a lo-lo-lonely soul

But my heart is yours love in every single way


       G
And at night I sit and cry it seems
D
Wondering why love is not like my dreams
A                                 D
Wondering why I am still here all alone
       G
And at night I wish that you were there
D
Touching my face and stroking my hair
A
Telling me things, telling me stories
A
Telling me you love me and all my glories


D                             G
Love love you're always in my heart
   D                                A
Oh love love I've known it from the start
     D
Oh I wish that I could tell you
     G
Oh I wish that I could say
        D                A             D
That my heart is yours in every single way

    D                            G
Oh love love I wish that I could see
D                             A
What in the world you mean to me
   D                             G
Oh love love you always bring me down down down
    D          A                D 
Oh love love I wish you'd stick around

12. What Happiness Means To Me 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C                           Am
Maybe in the start we would laugh
C                         Am
Maybe in the end we would cry
Dm                               G
But I believe in every book I've ever read

    Am
And what you said
    Dm                  Am
And the moon was in the sky
        G                 C
And the tears did fill my eyes
        F                     C
And the memories they all had passed
          G                   C
But in my head they'll always last
           Dm           Am
And in the end before I could be
              G
I'd shown the world
                 C
What it means to me
              F                C
Believe it or not, I made them see
             G                  C
This is what happiness means to me

       C                  Am
Will I ever see your face again
       C               Am
Will I ever touch your skin
           Dm                         G
I'll never stop loving everything you do

But not (Am) me and you

    Am
And what you said
    Dm                  Am
And the moon was in the sky
        G                 C
And the tears did fill my eyes
        F                     C
And the memories they all had passed
          G                   C
But in my head they'll always last
           Dm           Am
And in the end before I could be
              G
I'd shown the world
                 C
What it means to me
              F                C
Believe it or not, I made them see
             G                  C
This is what happiness means to me

           F                C        
And in the end, I made them see
             G                  C
This is what happiness means to me
