This is the chord chart for the Broadway Musical "Children of Eden". This is one of my
favorite songs and I wanted to play it on my piano but there weren't any chords for it
(obviously.. it's from a musical) But I figured out the chords to it for anyone who 
would like to play it on their instrument of choice.


Intro:
E	D2/E	C#m/E	D2/E

Verse 1:
     	  E	      D2/E
Oh this son of mine I love so well
    C#m/E           D2/E
And all the toil it takes
     E		   C#m7
I’d give to him a garden
     D		       E
and keep it clear of snakes
        G#m		      A
But the one thing he most treasures
       B	      C#m    	   F#m
Is to make his own mistakes - ohhh

     	   E	         D2/E
He goes charging on the cliffs of life
   C#m/E           D2/E
A reckless mountaineer
	  E	         C#m7
I could help him not to stumble
         D		  E
I could warn him what to fear
         G#m		A
I could shout until I’m breathless
	  B              C#m	      F#m
And he’d still refuse to hear - ohhh

Chorus:
         F#m     Amaj7 	 B
But you cannot close the acorn
         G#m7	       C#m
Once the oak begins to grow
         G#m   G#m7	  C#m7
And you cannot close your heart
	    F#m	      A7       B
To what it fears and needs to know
	  G#m     A   C#m  B
That the hardest part of love
	       E
Is the letting go

Verse 2:
	E	      D2/E
As a child I found a sparrow
	 C#m/E           D2/E
Who had fallen from the nest
	E		  C#m7
And I nursed him back to health
       	      D		       E
Till he was stronger than the rest
     G#m	     A
But when I tried to hold it
          B	              C#m
It would peck and scratch my chest
	     F#m
Till I let it go

  	E	     D2/E
And I watched it fly away from me
          C#m/E            D2/E
With its brightened self resolve
     E		    C#m7
And part of me was cursing
         D		  E
I had helped it grow so strong
       G#m                 A
And I feared it might go hungry
	B	          C#m        F#m
And I feared it might go wrong - ohhh

Chorus:
       F#m       A7 	   B
But I could not close the acorn
	 G#m7	       C#m
Once the oak began to grow
      G#m    G#m7     C#m7
And I cannot close my heart
	    F#m	      A7	B
To what it fears and needs to know
	   G#m    A  C#m  B
That the hardest part of love
	        E
Is the letting go

E    D2/E   C#m/E    D2/E

  	  E	 D2/E
And it’s only in Eden
        C#m/E           D2/E
Grows a rose without a thorn
          E	            C#m7
And your children start to leave you
        D		   E
On the day that they were born
           G#m	              A
They will leave you there to cheer for them
	   B	             C#m        F#m
They will leave you there to mourn ever so

  	E         D2/E
Like an ark on uncharted seas
      C#m/E           D2/E
Their lives will be tossed
     E		   C#m7
And deeper is your love for them
    D               E
The crueler is the cost
    G#m		             A
And just when they start to find themselves
    B	                 C#m        F#m
Is when you fear they’re lost - ohhh

Chorus:
         F#m   Amaj7 	 B
But you cannot close the acorn
         G#m7	       C#m
Once the oak begins to grow
         G#m   G#m7	  C#m7
And you cannot close your heart
	    F#m	      A7       B
To what it fears and needs to know
	  G#m     A   C#m  B
That the hardest part of love
        G#m    A   C#m	B
And the rarest part of love
        C#m	       A  B
And the truest part of love
               E
Is the letting go
