Difficulty
Capo
novice
1st fret
These are the chords for the song, although its a repetition of string picking, its 

picking of these chords.  Fairly easy either way though.

I put the F chord twice throughout the song to emphasis that it gets two measures (8 

beats) instead of one measure (4 beats)

Verse 2 (same as 1st verse)

You were just a child, ready to explore
And everything you saw looked like an open door
A place you can remember, you'd love to go back
But you can't even comprehend that it's all in the past
