No Capo.

[Intro]

C#m A C#m E


[Verse 1]

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


[Pre-Chorus]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse 2]

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


[Pre-Chorus]

F#m          G
I've thrown away
F#m        G
The hope I had in friendship
F#m          G
I've thrown away
   F#m               G
So many things that could've been much more
F#m          G
I've thrown away
      F#m              G
The secret to find an end to this
F#m     G
And I just pray
    F#m          G               E
My problems go away if they're ignored
                           G
But that's not the way it works
           A              
No that's not the way it works


[Chorus]

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


[Bridge]

Bm      A                G                     D/F#           Asus4
Any control I thought I had just slips right through my hands
          A             G                             D/F#     Em
While my ever-present conscience shakes its head and reprimands me
     Asus4    A
Reprimands me

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


[Instrumental]

G D/F# G D G Bm G D
 

[Bridge 2]

             G D/F#   G              D
You give me hope, and hope it gives me life
    G             Bm                   G               D
You touch my heavy heart, and when you do you make it light
G      D   G                   D
As I exhale  I hear your voice
       G         D          G             D
And I answer you, though I hardly make a noise

G            D        G                    D
And from my lips the words I choose to say
G             D         G             D
Seem pathetic, but it's fallen man's praise
          G    D/F#   Bm D
Because I love you
          G    Bm      G D
Oh God, I love you


[Instrumental]

G D/F# G D G Bm G D (baa-baas galore!)


[Bridge 3]

     G                 D/F#
And life is now worth living
    G               D
If only because of you
     G                  Bm
And when they say that I'm dead and gone
             G                 D
It won't be further from the truth


[Instrumental]

D/F# G A Bm D/F# G  (x2)


[Coda] 

(piano bit, don't worry about the slashes for guitar!)

D
When I go down
Bm/D
I lift my eyes to you
G/D
I won't look very far
A/D
Cause you'll be there
          C#m     A
With open arms
              C#m    A
To lift me up again
              F#m    G
To lift me up again
