Intro
Em D G C 2x

                Em
I don't want to leave here
   D             G
I don't want to stay
              Em
It feels like pinching to me
D       G
Either way
        C
And the places I long for the most
         G
Are the places where I've been
          Am
They are calling out to me
        D
Like a long lost friend
                Em
It's not about losing faith
     D          G
It's not about trust
                Em
It's all about comfortable
          D      G
When you move so much
        C
And the place I was wasn't perfect
            G
But I had found a way to live
        Am
And it wasn't milk or honey
          D
But then neither is this


            C                  G
I've been painting pictures of Egypt,
           C                  D
I've been leaving out what it lacks
    C               G
The future feels so hard,
               D
And I wanna go back!
         C                   G
But the places that used to fit me,
       C                     Em
Cannot hold the things I've learned
      Am
Those roads were closed off to me
D                     Em D G C 2x
While my back was turned!
       

               Em
The past is so tangible
  D          G
I know it by heart
Em                        D
Familiar things are never easy
G
To discard
       C
I was dying for some freedom
          G
But now I hesitate to go
      Am
I am caught between the Promise
         D
And the things I know


            C                  G
I've been painting pictures of Egypt,
           C                  D
I've been leaving out what it lacks
    C               G
The future feels so hard,
               D
And I wanna go back!
         C                   G
But the places that used to fit me,
       C                     Em
Cannot hold the things I've learned
      Am
Those roads were closed off to me
D                     Em D G C 2x
While my back was turned!
       
           

      Em
If it comes to quick
   D        G
I may not appreciate it
             Em           D                 Am
Is that the reason behind all this time and sand?
          Em
And if it comes to quick
   D      G
I may not recognize it
            Em             D                Am
Is that the reason behind all this time and sand?

Sounds better with Capo on 1st fret. But overall. Good job!
