Standing
Words & Music By: Joss Whedon

VERSE:
F          F#dim         G        D/A  C/A
You're not ready for the world outside.
F           F#dim            G          D/A  C/A
You keep pretending, but you just can't hide.
F        C                Am               Bb
I know I said that I'd be standing by your side,
    Am  G  D
But I...
F              F#dim           G     D/A  C/A
Your path is unbeaten and it's all uphill.
F           F#dim            G     D/A  C/A
And you can meet it, but you never will.
F           C                  Am       Bb
And I'm the reason that you're standing still,
    Am  G
But I...

CHORUS:
               F       G
I wish I could say the right words,
   Em               F
To lead you to this land.
             Am       G/B
Wish I could play the father,
    C               F
And take you by the hand.
             Eb/C Bb   Am    Abm  Eb
Wish I could stay, but now I understand,
    Cm              F
I'm standing in the way...

VERSE:
F         F#dim                 G       D/A  C/A
The cries around you, you don't hear at all,
F               F#dim       G         D/A  C/A
'Cause you know I'm here to take that call.
F            C                  Am                 Bb
And you just lie there when you should be standing tall,
    Am  Bb
But I...

CHORUS:
               F        G
I wish I could lay your arms down,
    Em              F
And let you rest at last.
             Am        G/B
Wish I could slay your demons,
    C                 F
But now that time has passed.
            Eb/C Bb     Am       Abm      Eb
Wish I could stay, your stalwart standing fast,
        Cm              F
But I'm standing in the way...
         Cm              F
I'm just standing in the way...
