Intro:
C#  G#  B  F#7

Verse 1:
        C#           G#         B            F#7
I got a head full of dreams and time here to scheme.
           C# G# B  F#7
This ain't good, good.
    C#            G#               B              F#7
I'm thinking, you know, about what did and didn't go
        C#   G# B    F#7
Like it should, should.

G#
All these expectations
F#7          C#
Just mean my heart'll be breaking.
G#              C#m F#
Oh, why can't I see?

Chorus:
B           E             G#m
You give me what I need,
                       E
Even on my brightest day,
                 B
Even in a hurricane.
            E             G#m
You give me what I need,
                          E
Even when there's way too much,
                      C#
Even when I'm down to dust.

    G#  B  F#7
C#  G#  B  F#7

Verse 2:
     C#            G#            B            F#7
I've troubled with time, but its will was not mine.
             C#  G#               B F#7
There was no slowin' where it was goin'.
    C#       G#                  B     F#7
The wishes I willed all came back unfulfilled.
      C#  G#          B F#7
I was prayin' without patience.

G#
All those expectations
F#7          C#
Just meant my heart was breaking.
G#              C#m F#
Oh, why can't I see?

Chorus:
B           E             G#m
You give me what I need,
                       E
Even on my brightest day,
                 B
Even in a hurricane.
            E             G#m
You give me what I need,
                          E
Even when there's way too much,

Even when I'm down to dust.

Bridge:
F#        B  F#    E
I keep calm, carry on,

Like nothing ever went wrong.
F#          B   F#    E
That's what I'm gonna do.
                                 F#
(That's what I'm gonna do, oh.)

           B  F#     E
Laugh it off, move along,

Get back where I belong.
F#              B       F# E
Live my life by leaning on you.
                    F#                      B
(Oh, I lean on you.  I'm gonna lean on you, yeah.)

Chorus:
B           E             G#m
You give me what I need,
                       E
Even on my brightest day,
                 B
Even in a hurricane.
            E             G#m
You give me what I need,
                          E
Even when there's way too much,

Even when I'm down to dust.

B           E             G#m
You give me what I need,
                     E
Even on my brightest day,
                 B
Even in a hurricane.

            E             G#m
You give me what I need,
                E 
(Oh, oh, what I need.)
                   B      E
You give me what I need.
               G#m    E
Give me what I need.
                 B  E  G#m  E
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
