Intro: G D C D G D C D

        G                                C
You must have been in a place so dark
                       G
You couldn’t feel the light
  Em               D          Cadd9       G
Reaching for you through that stormy cloud
                               C            G
Now here we are gathered in our little home town
      Em                   D       Cadd9       G
This can’t be the way you meant to draw a crowd

    D               C
Oh why, that’s what I keep asking
            G                    D
Was there anything I could have said or done
             C                        G
Oh I had no clue you were masking a troubled soul
    Dsus      D            Em  D
God only knows what went wrong
     C         Am                     D           G  
 D C D G D C D
and why you’d leave the stage in the middle of a song

    G                                    C         G
Now in my mind I’ll keep you frozen as a 17 year old
Em                  D        Cadd9     G
Rounding third to score the winning run
                                   C               G
You always played with passion no matter what the game
          Em                  D        Cadd9        G
When you took the stage you shined just like the sun

    D               C
Oh why, that’s what I keep asking
           G                     D
Was there anything I could have said or done
             C                        G
Oh I had no clue you were masking a troubled soul
    Dsus      D           Em   D
God only knows what went wrong
     C         Am                     D           Em
and why you’d leave the stage in the middle of a song

Interlude: D C G Em D C G 
D Em(7) D   Am C(hold)

         G                          C             G
Now the oak trees a swaying in the early autumn breeze
     Em             D     Cadd9     G
The golden sun is shining on my face
                             C            G
Tangled thoughts I hear the mocking bird sing
 Em                    D          Cadd9     G
This old world really ain’t that bad a place

    D              C
Oh why there’s no comprehending
     G               D
And who am I to try judge or explain
                   C
But I do have one burning question
     G                    Dsus          D
Who told you life wasn’t worth the fight
           Em
They were wrong
      C
They lied
            Em          C
Now you’re gone and we cry
              Cadd9(hold)  Am               D           
   D C
It’s just not like you to walk away in the middle of a song

         D      G      D C D
Your beautiful song

        G     D C(add9)  D(sus)(D)     G
Your absolutely         beautiful     song
