Track 1 - Best Intention Yet


CAPO: 4th Fret


## NOTE: ~ ~ = Walk-Down from C to G & Em ##



[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]

Summer sand stuck to my fingers
C
Summer song stuck in my head
G
Sleeping out in half-built houses
C
Fireworks bursting above our bed
  D                       C
I felt like a king on Independence Day


[Chorus]
G
We faced the future, eyes wide open
C
Crossed all our hearts before they were broken
G
Said our goodbyes, nothing was spoken
    D
You can't go back
C                                      G  D  E  C ~ ~
You were the best intention I ever had


[Verse 2]
G
In the glow of graduation
C
Took the stage and sat back down
    G
And after that we knew so little
C
Posing in your cap and gown
    D                   C
you smiled, no one is immune from change


[Chorus]
G
We faced the future, eyes wide open
C
Crossed all our hearts before they were broken
G
Said our goodbyes, nothing was spoken
    D
You can't go back
C                                      G  D  E  C ~ ~
You were the best intention I ever had
G                   D                  E  C ~ ~
You were the best intention I ever had


[Bridge]
Em      G
We came too late
      D
Broke down the door and faced the outcome
    Em         G
And you stayed so still
Am
Took you in and turned their lights on
C
We stood staring from your front lawn


[Chorus]
G
We faced the future, eyes wide open
C
Crossed all our hearts before they were broken
G
Said our goodbyes, but nothing was spoken
    D
You can't go back
        C
No, you can't go back
    D
You can't go back
        C
No, you can't go back


[Chorus]
G
We faced the future, eyes wide open
C
Crossed all our hearts before they were broken
G
Said our goodbyes, but nothing was spoken
    D
You can't go back
C                                      G  D  E  C ~ ~
You were the best intention I ever had
G                   D                  E  C ~ ~
You were the best intention I ever had


[Outro]
G                   D
You were, you were, you were, you were
C                    ~ ~
You were, you were
G                   D
You were, you were
Em                  C                  G
You were the best intention I ever had

Track 2 - Blue Skies Again


CAPO: 1st Fret




[Verse 1]
F
Dear winter bird
    Bb           F
How long can you last
  Dm               C
Before it gets too cold
        Bb             F
And the earth asks you back


[Verse 2]

Dear bended bough
    Bb            F
I'm ready for the sun
    Dm         C
The old man is leaving
      Bb             F
And a longer day's begun


[Chorus]
Dm                 Bb          F     C
Suddenly I can see blue skies again
Dm
Hear you say, there's nothing less
     Bb              F     C
That our hearts will mend
  F  C    Bb        F   C
I promise you, they do


[Verse 3]
D
Birch trees are bones
Bb                F
Stripped of their leaves
Dm                  C
Pressed between the pages
Bb          F
Of my memories


[Verse 4]

And this heart of mine
   Bb            F
Is ready for the spring
Dm         C
Open up my window
Bb               F
Winter bird take wing


[Chorus]
Dm                 Bb          F     C
Suddenly I can see blue skies again
Dm
Hear you say, there's nothing less
     Bb              F     C
That our hearts will mend
  F  C    Bb        F   C
I promise you, they do
         F  C
And they do


[Instrumental]
F      Bb  Dm  F    Dm    C    Bb  Dm  F    C


[Bridge]
Bb                  F      C
It's not easy to pretend
Bb                  F      C
It's not easy to pretend
Bb       G          F      C
It's not easy to pretend


[Chorus]
Dm                 Bb          F     C
Suddenly I can see blue skies again
Dm
Hear you say, there's nothing less
     Bb              F     C
That our hearts will mend
  F  C    Bb
I promise you

Track 3 - The Growing Up Boy



[Intro]
C  F  C

[Verse 1]
F                             C
Friends wear the scars of the lessons you learned
        F                                       C
And you sit by the embers of the bridges you've burned
   G                       F           C
We all have a story and we each take a turn
Dm          F           C     F  C
Laughing at all of your shit


[Verse 2]
    F                             C
And everyone is just somebody you knew
        F                                      C
And you never mean harm by the things that you do
    G                        F             C
But saying it through tears, don't make it true
Dm            F          C
Just makes it hard to forget it


[Chorus]
        G                  F           C
And the growing up boy, he never grows up
     G                   F          C
He's taunted by fear and haunted by love
    Dm      F                    C
Too late to learn, you've taken enough
               F  G C
Growing up boy


[Verse 3]
     F                                                C
It's heartache, it's heartbreak, it's dark clouds and then
       F                                C
It's a day of self-pity and he's on the mend
   G                       F           C
He finds true love for the first time again
         Dm            F         C
When the memory of the last girl lapses


[Verse 4]
                                    F            C
And he wakes up half-hearted and he looks at his phone
                                 F         C
For a message to remind him that he's not alone
       G                    F             C
And he always has many, but none are from home
      Dm           F          C       F
So he goes back to bed and collapses


[Chorus]
        G                  F           C
And the growing up boy, he never grows up
     G                   F          C
He's taunted by fear and haunted by love
    Dm                    F      C
Too late to learn, you've taken enough
           F
Growing up boy


[Instrumental]
C      F   C


[Verse 5]
      F                                           C
'Each day is your birthday', is what I wrote in a card
   F                                    C
To say a kind word, I just found it too hard
   G                      F         C
I erased what I meant, so just disregard
Dm            F            C
Make what you want of this form


[Verse 6]
F                                   C     F  C
Love is not like the songs that you sing
    F                                       C
How could you complain when it don't mean a thing
        G                         F           C
You can steal every verse and you break every string
            Dm      F                 C
And there's no one around when you're done


[Chorus]
        G                  F           C
And the growing up boy, he never grows up
     G                   F          C
He's taunted by fear and haunted by love
    Dm                    F      C
Too late to learn, you've taken enough
           F         C
Growing up boy, grow up

Track 4 - Skylines In Winter


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[Intro]
D

[Verse 1]
                           G
In the tiny little hours before the day begins
      Em                       D     A
While banks and busses sleep below
    D                          G
The future whispers words that only you can hear
     Em                      D    A
Take comfort in the quiet of snow___


[Chorus]
G           F#m
Skylines in winter
Em
Silhouettes emerge and splinter
  Bm           C                       A
Remind us of a love that couldn't last
               D      A
This too shall pass
           Em         G
This too shall pass
               D      A
This too shall pass
           Em    G
This too shall


[Verse 2]
D
Cheery things coming home
       G
As she throws her coat back on
  Em
Unlocks the door
                     D    A
She's gone and she's sleeping


[Chorus]
G           F#m
Skylines in winter
Em
Silhouettes emerge and splinter
  Bm           C                       A
Remind us of a love that couldn't last
               D      A
This too shall pass
           Em         G
This too shall pass
               D      A
This too shall pass
           Em    G
This too shall


[Bridge]
C
When you're missing
G
Presence of small things
   C                                   G   D
An open tube of toothpaste on the sill
    C
And like the birds do
G
Stay behind too
Em                                      A
When you find your way, you lose your will
               G      D
This too shall pass
            Am        C
This too shall pass
               G      D
This too shall pass
            Am        C
This too shall pass
               G      D
This too shall pass
            Am   C   E
This too shall
            Am     E
So much for love
            Am     E
So much for love
            Am     E
So much for love
            Am
So much for love

CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
G      C G    C

[Verse 1]
G
Lift your harpoon, the white whale is dead
    C                     G
And everybody wants to go home

The captain is brave or touched in the head
C                        G
Either way we leave him alone
Em            D       G
He don't even know my name


[Verse 2]
C                                       G
Hey baby, let's turn this thing around
C                                      G
I'm not the one you thought you found
    D
And even if we worked it out

Left ourselves a shred of doubt
   C               G
It wouldn't be the same
Em             D       G
You don't even know my name


[Pre-Chorus]
Am
Letters that you sent
  C
Addressed to occupant
                G
Were thoughtful after all
  D
I read 'em in the fall and


[Chorus]
G
My luck
   D
My luck is gonna change, yeah
G
My luck
   D
My luck is gonna change, well
G
My luck

My luck is gonna change
    C
Somehow, some day
                        G
My luck is gonna change me


[Interlude]
G      C G    C


[Verse 3]
       G
With a sleeping heart hung around your neck
C                   G
I mistook you for a saint

You hit the wall, walked away from the wreck
    C                       G
And didn't even scratch the paint
Em            D         G
We don't even know your name


[Verse 4]
C                                       G
Hey baby, let's turn this thing around
C                                   G
I'm ready to burn the old barn down
    D
And even if the fodder could

There’s nothing here that's made of wood
    C                  G
And I'm the one they'd blame
Em            D       G
We don't even know your name


[Pre-Chorus]
Am
Teachers that you took
  C
It could have filled a book
           G
Entitled, 'Everyone,
   D
He isn't any fun' and


[Chorus]
G
My luck
   D
My luck is gonna change, well
G
My luck
   D
My luck is gonna change, well
G
My luck
   D
My luck is gonna change
    C
Somehow, some day
                        G
My luck is gonna change me


[Outro]
D
My luck
   C
My luck is gonna change
D
My luck
   C
My luck is gonna change
D
My luck
   C                    G
My luck is gonna change me
A
My luck
   C                    G
My luck is gonna change me
