Joshua Radin - Song For You

Tuning: Standard
Capo: 3rd fret


G              Em            C
The waves crash over me again and again
G           Em              C
There's a storm approaching land
G          Em             C
And I'm so far out in the undertow
G         Em             C
Blindly praying for the sand

Em         C                    G      D
I built a boat that caused my sinking
Em          D              C
Nothing to blame but my own hands
Em         C                  G      D
The final lifeboat has been taken
Em          D              C
And I find I'm playing with the band

      G     Em     C
This song for you
      G     Em     C
This song for you

G              Em            C
When we first met I held a hammer in my hands
G          Em            C
A box of nails I used before
G              Em       C
Turns out the woodshed now is empty
G              Em            C
I didn't know the job in store

Em               C                 G       D
I thought the plans I drew were carefully drawn
Em   D              C
But alas, I'm just a fool
Em           C              G   D
And now I'm drowning in my sorrow
Em          D                    C
Like when a builder blames his tools

          G     Em     C
And sings his song for you
G          Em     C
Singing his song for you

G              Em        C
"Find what you love and let it kill you"
G            Em              C
But I have always been unsure
G              Em   C
If this was spoken by a mad man
G         Em            C
Or by a doctor with a cure

Em         C                  G  D
So as I am fighting with the ocean
Em          D              C
Too soon to tell if I'll survive
Em      C             G  D
Will I meet you underwater?
Em          D              C
Will we be swallowed by the tide?

              G     Em     C
And drown in this song
G     Em     C
Drown in this song for you
