Chords wih lyrics:

Intro
C C Bb F/A
C C Eb F*
Cm F Eb Dm

C     Bb F/A  C    Eb F*
These walls   have eyes
C              F
Rows of photographs
     Eb    Dm
And faces like mine
C   Bb F/A  C     Eb F*
Who do      we become
Cm                 F
Without knowing where
Eb        Dm
We started from

C C Bb F/A
C C Eb F*

C     Bb F/A  C           Eb F*
It's  true    I'm missing you
Cm           F   Eb      Dm
As I stand alone in your room

         s
C5 C5 Bb5-C5 C5 x2

G                   Eb         F* G*
Everyday that will pass you by
G                   Eb         F* G*
Every name that you won't recall
G                   Eb         F* G*
Everything that you made by hand
G                   Eb         F*
Everything that you know by heart

C                     Gm
And I will try to connect
                    Bb
All the pieces you left
                F
I will carry it on
                C
And let you forget
                       Gm
And I'll remember the years
                     Bb
When your mind was clear
                      F
How the laughter and life
                C     Bb F/A   C Eb F* Cm F Eb Dm (same as intro and verse)
Filled up this silent house

C     Bb F/A
One room
C          Eb F*
Two single beds
Cm             F
In the closet hangs
Eb          Dm
Your favorite dress
C   Bb F/A   C        Eb F*
The books   that you read
Cm                F
Are in scattered piles
    Eb     Dm
Of paper shreds

         s

Everything that you know by heart

All the pieces you left

I will carry it on

And let you forget
                       Gm
And I'll remember the years
                     Bb
When your mind was clear
                      F
How the laughter and life

In the garden   off the living room
Cm                F
A chill fills the air
     Eb          Dm
And the lilies bloom


C                     Gm
And I will try to connect
                    Bb
All the pieces you left
