Key: G
Standard Tuning

Intro: C (pause)

Verse 1:
            D/F#  G
Bittersweet sea – sons
D/F#         Em                 C 
Mistake a warm winter for spring
               D/F#    G            D/F#       Em                C
Seems like I’m best at leaving when leaving is not the best thing


Pre – Chorus 1:
    G                              D/F#
You couldn’t help it if you needed more than I could give
       Em                      C
That’s just the way it goes now


Verse 2:
           D/F#  G          D/F#    Em              C
I call you mis - placed but never a waste of my time
                  D/F#   G
Everybody’s gonna make mistakes,
    D/F#         Em            C
But you’ll never be one of mine


Pre – Chorus 2:
    G                              D/F#
You couldn’t help it if you needed more than I could give
       Em                      C
That’s just the way it goes now
  G                             D/F#
I knew you felt me leaving long before I ever did
       Em                      C
That’s just the way it goes now


Chorus 1:
         G      (bass line:B-C-D) D#dim
Loved me fearless when you needed to
          Em                     A/C#
You would not rest till you came through
   C             D         C
So God bless and thank you

Verse 3:
            D/F# G         D/F#         Em             C
There is no an - ger, it's just you and I and the truth
               D/F# G       D/F#      Em              C
You can try to make her but love will not be forced to bloom, to bloom


Pre – Chorus 3:
    G                              D/F#
You couldn’t help it if you needed more than I could give
       Em                      C
That’s just the way it goes now
    G                               D/F#
The only love worth fighting for is one that you can win and,
       Em                      C
That’s just the way it goes now

Chorus 2:
          G     (bass line:B-C-D) D#dim
You would not break but you could bend
              Em                A/C#
And for love’s sake you let love end,
    C                                D
But I still swear that you were God sent

Instrumental:
EmAEmAEmACD

Pre – Chorus 4:
        G                                D/F#
And you stood before me knowing that the wings I have you gave
           Em                      C
And that’s just the way it goes now
      G                                      D/F#
And I barely have the breath to breathe much less to fly away
           Em                      C
And that’s just the way it goes now

Chorus 3:
      G (bass line:B-C-D) D#dim      Em
And a silence entered the room for a one last,
           A/C#
"I’m gonna love you"
   C             D#dim      EmA/C# - 
So God bless and thank you
   C             D         C -   D
So God bless and thank you,     thank you
C  -   D
    Yeah
C   -   D(pause)
