                         that's not quite the way it sounds on the album)

A       Bsus        A(9)
  I am the only one to blame for this
A        Bsus             F#7sus
  Somehow it all ends up the same
A           Bsus             C#m7
Soaring on the wings of selfish pride
                         A    Bsus      F#7sus
I flew too high and like Icharus I collide

       C#m7            Bsus            A A(9)
With a world I try so hard to leave behind
    C#m7         Bsus             A         A(9)
To rid myself of all but love, to give and die


A        Bsus         A(9)
  To turn away and not become
A       Bsus                F#7sus
  Another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves
     A            Bsus          C#m7
More deeply than the oceans, more abundant than the tears
     A    Bsus             F#7sus
Of a world embracing every heartache

C#m7          Bsus        A A(9)
Can I be the one to sacrifice
     C#m7              Bsus                A      A(9)
Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow

[Chorus]
    C#m7
(To love you)

E                 A
Take my world a - part
             (To  need you)

A       C#m7
I am on my knees
       (To love you)

E                 A
Take my world a - part
             (To  need you)

A         C#m7  Bsus A(9) A
Broken on my knees

A            Bsus         A(9)
  All said and done I stand alone
A         Bsus       F#7sus
  Amongst remains of a life I should not own
    A       Bsus    C#m7
It takes all I am to believe
       A       Bsus      F#7sus
In the mercy that covers me

C#m7            Bsus            A A(9)
Did you really have to die for me
      C#m7                               Bsus
All I am for all you are because what I need
                       A
And what I believe are worlds apart
A
     And I pray


[Chorus]

      C#m7  Bsus A A(9)
On my knees

    C#m
I look beyond the empty cross
    B
Forgetting what my life has cost
   A
I wipe away the crimson stains
    A
And all the nails that still remain
 C#m
More and more I need you now
  B
I owe you more each passing hour
     A
The battle between grace and pride
   A
I gave up not so long ago
     C#m
So steal my heart and take the pain
     B
And wash the feet and cleanse my pride
A
Take the selfish, take the weak
    A
And all the things I cannot hide
 C#m
Take the beauty, take my tears
    B
My sinful soiled heart, make it pure
 A
Take my world, it all is yours
 A
Take it now, take it now

   C#m7                                    C#m7
To serve the ones that I despise       (To love you)
 E                                     E                 A
Speak the words I can't deny           Take my world a - part
                                                    (To  need you)
     A
And watch the world I used to know
 A                                  A(9)       C#m7
Fall to dust and blow away             I am on my knees
                                              (To love you)
   C#m7
I look beyond the empty cross
    E                                  E                 A
Forgetting what my life has cost       Take my world a - part
                                                    (To  need you)
    A
So wipe away the crimson stains
    A                               A(9)         C#m7
And all the nails that still remain    Broken on my knees
                                                (To need you)

      C#m7
And steal my heart and take the pain
     Bsus
And take the selfish, take the weak
    A                                   A(9)
And all the things I cannot hide       (To need you)
A
Take the beauty, take my tears
C#m7                                         C#m7
Take my world apart                    On my knees
                                         (To need you)
Bsus
Take my world apart
    A                                   A(9)
And I do pray                          (To need you)
    A
And I pray, and I pray

C#m7 Bsus           A A(9)                C#m7
     Take my world apart               On my knees
            A Bsus A(9)
My worlds apart
