  More than get alone and  be with you
D              C#             C          B 
  Trouble with dreams is they don't come true
D               C#            C           B 
  And when they do they can't catch up to you

  When to hold on and when to let go

G     D         F         C
  If you let me down it's alright
G     D                F             C
  At least that leaves something for me

  Crossing fingers and wiping brow
D              C#            C        B

Intro:
A E G D F Em A

A                 E
  In the yard, behind the church where
G                D
 Butterflies and blackbirds search for
F                Em               A
 A safe place to rest the night away
A               E
We will go down to the brook and
G            D
Sit upon the overlook then
F                 Em              A 
 Forget about the troubles of the day

A E G D F Em A

A               E
  We will walk among the graves of
G                   D
 Men long dead with presidents' names and
F               Em                A
  Listen to the water flow softly by

A                 E
  I will kiss you on the lips now
G                      D
 And as the sky grows dark we'll strip down
F                  Em            A
 And let the water wash away all lies


A E G D F Em A x2
Riff x2


A               E
 In the yard, behind the church where
G                D
 Butterflies and blackbirds perch on
F                   Em               A
 Gray stones as the garden's growing dim

A                 E
 We will lay down on the ground and
G               D
 Put our cheeks against the dirt down
F                   Em                   A
 Where it no longer matters Where you've been

A E G D F Em A x6 (Fade out)

          Dreaming of the pretty things
D         D            D
          Don't be too surprised

They don't have a little clue
What it's like to be me
What it's like to lose you

Em           G             A           Cadd9
   I'm gonna tell you what you need to hear
Em                      G           A             Cadd9
   And I'm a little too late, about three or four years
Em                          G              A       Cadd9
   And it may not make much sense now that we are apart
    Em           G       A            Cadd9    D          Em     G A Cadd9
But I'm going to stop pretending that I didn't break your heart


Em                 G                        A        Cadd9
   You see I never thought enough of myself    to realise
Em                      G                        A             Cadd9
   That losing me could mean something, like the tears in your eyes
Em             G                            A           Cadd9
   And I wanna tell you I'm sorry, and it's too late to start
    Em           G       A            Cadd9    D          Em
But I'm going to stop pretending that I didn't break your heart

Em G A Cadd9 x4
 
Em                    G    A              Cadd9
   And it's Christmas Eve, years down the line
Em                          G                   A                Cadd9
   Sitting here wishing I'd treated you better,    when you were mine
Em               G               A             Cadd9
   And I have no way of knowing,     where you are
    Em           G       A            Cadd9    D          Em     G A Cadd9
But I'm going to stop pretending that I didn't break your heart

Em G A Cadd9

Em          G                    A                      Cadd9
   I didn't mean to hurt you,  I didn't know what I was doing
Em       G                   A  Cadd9
   But I know what I've done

Em G A Cadd9 x4

This is for a piano, but you can play with a guitar capo 3 (transpose -3) D#/A# : xxx010

Intro :
Gm G# D# F D# x2
 
Gm     G#                 D#     
  Dear cousin, I got your letter
G#                   Gm             Fm
  It was more than i thought i deserved
Gm                G#             D#     
  Well she sounds perfect, all i dream of
      G#             Gm            Fm
And i dream about so much it is absurd
C#                              Cm
   But when i get there and she sees me
C#                               D#
   I'll be impressed if she does not run screaming
G#          Gm              Fm    D#/A#
 My kind of love is an ugly love
         G#             Gm              Fm    G#
But it's real and it lasts a long, long time 

Gm G# D# F D# 


Gm        G#                  D#     
  I had a thought while i was sleeping
        G#              Gm              Fm
  And i dreamed about a place for us to rest
Gm      G#               D#     
  Eternity under the old oak tree
G#             Gm           Fm

'cause  my kind of love is an ugly love

  She wouldn't be the first to wretch
Gm         G#            D#     
  Well i decided one day long ago
      G#          Gm              Fm
I was never gonna be the greatest catch
C#                             Cm
   And if she cares about the car i drive
     C#                       D#
Then she can get in hers, The moment i arrive, 'cause 

G#          Gm              Fm    D#/A#                   
 My kind of love is an ugly love                       \

G C        D               G
     Was i wrong about the world
G C        D              G
     It's a beautiful new place
G C        D            G
     Where else could a creep like me
G C        D            G
     Meet such a pretty face

Chorus 1 :
Dm               C                   A#  Am
   Meeting every day with the rising sun
Dm                 C               A#               Am
   Looking up it's looking like my losing streak is done

D D5 G A D x2

G C          D           G

D D5 G A D x2

G C        D                G

Chorus 1

G C     D                G
     My losing streak is done
     I said my losing streak is done

     I said my losing streak is done 

D D5 G A D  Fade out

A                 D     A    E               A     E
I can't live in a world that you have left behind
F                C                 G
Seen a lot, been through too much
    C               D        E
But this is where i draw the line

D        A            G         D
It's not where you're coming from
D      E            A        D
  It's where you're going to
    Bm     A     D       G    D 
And i just wanna go with you

A             D          A       E              A     E
December is a lonely month, In a year of lonely days
F                   C                 G
  It's hard to tell which way is up
   C               D           E
Or down or out, Or through the haze

D      A         G      D
People cheat and people lie
D                E            A        D
  While you just watch it all go by
Bm         A      D       G    D 
  Counting days until you die

C D C G C G C Bm

    A                 D          A         E               A     E
The stars shine in the sky tonight, Like a path beyond the grave
F                C                 G
  When you wish upon that star
        C             D       E
There's two of us you need to save

D        A            G         D
It's not where you're coming from
D      E            A        D
  It's where you're going to

Fadd9  : xx3213

C x4

C                     G   Fadd9                        G
  I go to bed real early,        everybody thinks it's strange
C                       G       Fadd9                              G
  I get up early in the morning,      No matter how disappointed i was ith the day before
         C   G Fadd9 G
It feels new

C                         G   Fadd9                             G
  I don't leave the house much,    I don't like being around people
C                         G   Fadd9                              G
  Makes me nervous and weird,      I don't like going to shows either
C                            G    Fadd9                                  G
  It's better for me to stay home,   Some might think it means i hate people
C                         G   Fadd9                             G
  But that's not quite right
C                       G  Fadd9                           G
  I do some stupid things,     But my heart's in the right place
           C   G Fadd9 G
And this i know

C G Fadd9 G


C                              G     Fadd9                                 G
  I got a dog, I take him for a walk,     And all the people like to say hello
C                                 G               Fadd9                             G
  I'm used to staring down at the sidewalk cracks,      I'm learning how to say hello
                 C       G Fadd9 G
Without too much trouble

C                              G     Fadd9                        G
  I'm turning out just like my father,     Though i swore i never would
C                             G            Fadd9                     G
  Now i can say that i have a love for him,     I never really understood
C                                 G     Fadd9                   G
  What it must have been like for him,        Living inside his head
C                               G     Fadd9  G
  I feel like he's here with me now
                 C    G Fadd9 G
Even though he's dead

C                                    G     Fadd9                             G
  It's not all good and it's not all bad,      Don't believe everything you read
I'm the only one who knows what it's like,     So i though i'd better tell you
                 C    G Fadd9 G
Before i leave

C G Fadd9 G

C                              G   Fadd9                          G
  So in the end i'd like to say,         That i'm a very thankful man
I tried to make the most of my situations,       And enjoy what i had
I knew true love and i knew passion,   And the difference between the two
And i had some regrets, but if i had to do it all again,     Well, it's something i'd like to 
 C    G Fadd9 G
 do

C G Fadd9 G x4 Fade ...
