[Intro]

Asus2/D  Asus4  G


[Verse 1]

Asus2/D                     Asus4
I'll say it straight and plain 
                       G
I know I've made mistakes
                       Dsus2
I've always been afraid

Dsus4 Dsus2 Dsus4 Dsus2

                         Asus4
A thousand nights or more
                    G
I traveled east and north
                         Dsus2
Oh please answer the door


[Chorus]

[Verse 2]

                     Asus4
Get down on your knees
                  G
Tell me what I need
               Dsus2
Something pretty 

Dsus4 Dsus2 Dsus4 Dsus2

Asus2/D                Asus4
I feel like when i'm old
                       G
I'll look at you and know
                      Dsus2
The world was beautiful.

[Bridge]

D/F#                                 G
I'm done, there's nothing left to show
                  Asus2/D
Try but can't let go
                                      Asus4
Are you happy when you're standing still?
                               D/F#
Do you really want the sugar pill?
                                  G
I'll wake up tomorrow and I'll start
                        Asus2/D
Tonight it's just too hard
                                 Asus4
As a train approaches, gare du nore
                                  D/F#
As i'm sure your kiss remain employed 
                G
Am I only dreaming?


[Chorus]

 Asus2/D          Asus4           G
You can say that love goes anywhere
Asus2/D          Asus4                               G
In your darkest times, it's just enough to know it's there
Asus2/D     Asus4            G
When you go outside, you'll be
Asus2/D            Asus4           G
But you're killing everything in me
