C Am F G (x2)

[Verse 1]

C               Am
I open my lungs dear, 
F                 G           C  Am      
I sing this song at funerals, no rush.
F                       G               C Am
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush.
F                  G                 C                   Am
A baby boy you've held so tightly, this pain it visits almost nightly.
F         G                      C
Missing hotel beds I feel your touch.

C          Am
I will await dear, 
F               G      C     Am
A patient of eternity, my crush.
F            G      C   Am
A universal still, No rust.
F               G 
No dust will ever grow on this frame, 
C                       Am  
One million years I will say your name.
F                   G               C
I love you more than I can ever scream.


        C         Am
Booked our flight those years ago, 
    F                G
I said I love you as I left you.
    C              Am
'Grets still haunt my hollow head, 
      F         G              C
I promised you I will see you again.

[Verse 2]

C               Am
I sit here and smile dear, 
F                  G              C   Am
I smile because I think of you, I blush.
F                   G             C    Am
These bleeding hollow dials, this fuss.
F                   G
Fuss is made of miles and travels 
C                   Am
when roadways are but stones and gravel.
F           G                    C
A bleeding heart can conquer every crutch.


C G Em F


        C         Am 
Booked our flight those years ago, 
      F               G
You said you loved me as you left me.
   C                Am
'Grets still haunt your saddened head but 
     F          G          
I promised you I will see you.
        C         Am
Booked our flight those years ago, 
    F                  G
I said I loved you and I left you.
   C             Am
'Grets no longer in my head, 
      F                 G            C
But I promised you and now I'm home again, 
again, again, again, again, again.
I'm home again

End on C

There is another one that uses similar chords, I like this one better because it shows when to switch chords. In personal opinion this is the best one I have seen and played so far.
