 INTRO:
F#maj7 - B/F# - F# - F# (x2)



 VERSE 1:
         F#maj7         B/F#     F#         F#
  I have tried but it's hard to fight it
               F#maj7      B/F#    F#         F#
  I can't just watch as it falls apart
              F#maj7     B/F#          F#           F#
  If we could break the mould, make it in from the cold
            F#maj7      B/F#       F#         F#
  Lose your mind, never lose your heart



 PRE-CHORUS 1:
           Eb
  I don't mind working hard for it
                 F#
  I'll bend the hands 'til the space appears
                 Eb
  I'll move the pieces until we all fit
               F#                  Abm11      F#/Bb
  From near to far and from far to near



 CHORUS 1:
        Bsus2                             F#
  And I know that I'm going against the grain
        Abm11     F#/Bb    Bsus2
  And I know this makes no sense
        Bsus2               F#         Abm11   F#/Bb    Bsus2
  The changes I've tried to make, they make no differ - ence
        Bsus2                F#                     Eb
  But I know that I'll try again, although it's so hard
   F#   Bsus2
  Hard, hard



 TRANSITION:
F#maj7 - B/F# - F# - F# (x2)



 VERSE 2:
        F#maj7     B/F#     F#         F#
  Given time it'll finally focus
           F#maj7        B/F#      F#         F#
  And in a moment that's been and gone
             F#maj7             B/F#        F#           F#
  And in the afterglow, from my head to my soul
        F#maj7    B/F#    F#         F#
  I can see all I have ignored



 PRE-CHORUS 2:
               Eb
  And I don't mind working hard for it
                 F#
  I'll bend the hands 'til the space appears
                 Eb
  I'll move the pieces until we all fit
               F#                  Abm11      F#/Bb
  From near to far and from far to near



 CHORUS 2:
        Bsus2                             F#
  And I know that I'm going against the grain
        Abm11     F#/Bb    Bsus2
  And I know this makes no sense
        Bsus2               F#         Abm11   F#/Bb    Bsus2
  The changes I've tried to make, they make no differ - ence
        Bsus2                F#                     Eb
  But I know that I'll try again, although it's so hard
   F#   Bsus2
  Hard, hard



 TRANSITION:
F#maj7 - B/F# - F# - F# (x2)



 BRIDGE:
     C#7/Ab                     F#add9
  If life's so short then we're wasting time
  C#/F                   F#add9
  Love is the last thing on our minds
  C#7/Ab        F#add9          C#/F       C#/F
  It's so simple but so hard to see
      C#sus4       Ebm7
  And you are not alone in this
   Bb                B9
  Sense of loss and loneliness
  C#7/Ab               F#add9          C#/F       C#/F
  Take your shoes off, run towards the sea



 CHORUS 3:
        Bsus2                             F#
  And I know that I'm going against the grain
        Abm11     F#/Bb    Bsus2
  And I know this makes no sense
        Bsus2               F#         Abm11   F#/Bb    Bsus2
  The changes I've tried to make, they make no differ - ence
        Bsus2                F#                     Eb
  But I know that I'll try again, although it's so hard
   F#   Bsus2
  Hard, hard



 TRANSITION:
F#maj7 - B/F# - F# - F# (x2)



 OUTRO:
             F#/Bb    Am6       F#
  I know the sun will keep on shining down
      Am6                    F#
  As long as you're around
