Standard Tuning

D Dmaj7 Em A7

Verse 1
    D                Dmaj7             Em      A7
For those of you who tried, but didn't make it,
D                 Dmaj7          Em     A7
Settle down- it's never what you think.
    D              Dmaj7           D7        G
The summit doesn't differ from the big, dark valley,
        Em                             A7      A
And the valley doesn't differ from the kitchen sink.

Verse 2
    D                Dmaj7            Em         A7
For those of you who thought you'd be forgotten,
    D                        Dmaj7              Em      A7  
The friends you've made will try their best, to make it so.
D                Dmaj7           D7      G
Think of all the beauty that you left behind you.
        Em                               A7     A                          
You can take it if you want it, and then let it go.

            Em    A
And this is not a test,
            Em    A
No, this is not a test.
Em             A          D      D7
Taking numbers never made sense, anyways.
            Em    A
No, this is not a test,
            Em    A
No, this is not a test.
               Em              A           D    
'Cause you can have it, if you want it, anyways.

(Faux trumpet solo)
D7 Em A Em A

Verse 3
For those of us who try to keep remembering,
Try to do our better than our best.
Think of all the children in the drifts of snow.
Winners never quit, but winters never rest.

(Repeat chorus x2, to fade out)
