verse 1 
(the intro is played whilst the second guitar plays the verses)

G        D             Em                 Bm11
A lonely road, crossed another cold state line

C               Gadd9
Miles away from those i love

D
Purpose hard to find

G         D            Em                 Bm11
While i recall all the words you spoke to me

      C                  Gadd9
Can't help but wish that I was there

     D
Back where I'd love to be, oh yeah


Chorus

G    D       Em           D
Dear God the only thing i ask of you

      C                 G
Is to hold her when I'm not around

         D
When I'm much too far away

G      D         Em                D
We all need that person who can be true to you

      C             G
But I left her when I found her

    D
And Now I wish I'd stayed

          C              D
Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired

    B7          Em     D  C
I'm missing you again, oh no

     G
Once again...


Verse 2

                D           Em             Bm11
There's nothing here for me on this barren road

        C                     Gadd9
There's no one here while the city sleeps

D
And all the shops are closed

G              D            Em                  Bm11
Can't help but think of the times I've had with you

C                 Gadd9
Pictures and some memories

     D
Will have to help me through, oh yeah


PLAY CHORUS AGAIN


Middle

Em        B7
Well some search

C               G
Never finding a way

Em     B7
Before long

C          G
They waste away

Em      B7
I found you

C                    G
Something told me to stay

Em     B7
I gave in

C          G
To selfish ways

Am                        D
And how i miss someone to hold


When hope begins to fade
