Capo 3rd Fret (All chords are relative to the capo)


Intro:  Em  C  G  D
        Em  C  G  D


Verse:
Em                 C
This boy wants to play
                       G
There's no time left today
                        D
It's a shame 'cause he has to go home
Em                 C
This boy's got to work
                     G                        D
Got to sweat just to pay what he gets to get left all alone


Bridge:
Am                  C
Well let's step outside
                G
Let's go for a ride
              D
Just for a while
Am                C
No we won't get caught
                     G                D
Well that's what I thought, until we cried


Chorus:
G
I'm still here
         B7
But it hasn't been easy
Em            Cm
I'm sure that you had your reasons
G          B7
I'm scared for this emotion
     C                          A
For years I've been holding it down
      Cm
For years I've been holding it down


Verse 2:
Em                   C
This girl tries her best everyday
          G                               D  
But it's all gone to waste 'cause there's no one around
Em                 C
This girl she can draw she can paint
          G
Likes to dance she can skate
         D
Now she don't make a sound


Bridge:
Am                 C
We'll play in the park
                 G             D
'Till it's too dark for us to see
Am                       C
Well we'll make our way home
                  G
With mud on our clothes
               D
She won't be pleased


Chorus:
G
I'm still here
         B7
But it hasn't been easy
Em            Cm
I'm sure that you had your reasons
G          B7
I'm scared for this emotion
      C                        A
For years I've been holding it down
        G        B7
And I, love to forgive and forget
      Em         Cm
So I, try to put all this behind us
       G            B7
Just, know that my arms are wide open
C                    A             Cm
The older I get, the more that I know

Cm
Well it's time to let this go

D
I got to let it go (x4)


[Play Chorus]


        G        B7
And I, love to forgive and forget
      Em         Cm
So I, try to put all this behind us
       G            B7
Just, know that my arms are wide open
C                    A              Cm
The older I get, the more that I know

Cm                            G
Well it's time to let this go
