Capo on 2:



Verse 1:

D                     G
I'll tell you flat out
                                 Bm
It hurts so much to think of this
           Asus4
So from my thoughts I will exclude
The very thing that
I hate more than everything is
The way I'm powerless
To dictate my own moods

Verse 2:

C            F
I've thrown away
   C                F
So many things that could've been much more
C         F
And I just pray
   C           F               D
My problems go away if they're ignored
                          F
But that's not the way it works
          G               C
No that's not the way it works

Chorus:

C
When I go down
F
I go down hard
Am
And I take everything I've learned
G
And teach myself some disregard
When I go down
It hurts to hit the bottom
And of the things that got me there
I think, if only I had fought them

Verse 3:
If and when I can
Clear myself of this clouded mind
I'll watch myself settle down
Into a place where
Peace can search me out and find
That I'm so ready to be found

Verse 4:
I've thrown away
The hope I had in friendships
I've thrown away
So many things that could have been much more
I've thrown away
The secret to find an end to this
And I just pray
My problems go away if they're ignored
But that's not the way it works
No that's not the way it works

Bridge:

C      G                F                               C
Any control I thought I had just slips right through my hands
             G        F                                  C
While my ever-present conscience shakes its head and reprimands me
    G
Reprimands me

         C
Then and there
  F
I confess
C                                F
I'll blame all this on my selfishness
Yet you love me
And that consumes me
And I'll stand up again
And do so willingly

Bridge 2:
            F  C      F                C....
You give me hope, and hope it gives me life
You touch my heavy heart, and when you do you make it light
As I exhale I hear your voice
And I answer you, though I hardly make a noise
And from my lips the words I choose to say
Seem pathetic, but it's fallen man's praise
Because I love you
Oh God, I love you
And life is now worth living
If only because of you
And when they say that I'm dead and gone
It won't be further from the truth

Coda:
When I go down
I lift my eyes to you
I won't look very far
Cause you'll be there
With open arms
To lift me up again
To lift me up again

Lack of accuracy. The intro would be a Bmin instead of a D
and twenty words because I can't just say that it's wrong and that's that
