 I've been dreaming, of the things I've learnt

 about a boy who's bleeding, celebrate to elovate

 the joy is not the same without the pain

 Am  Em  F

     C        C d.b.   Bb              F
 you know I'm shallow, calling out for extra help
        G      Bb     F     Dm     G   G7
 you've got to let me in or let me out


[Chorus]

 about a boy who's leaving, nothing left to chance again
        G      Bb     F     Dm     G     G7
 you've got to let me in or let me out
