[Intro] Asus Cmaj7 Gmaj7 Am7/D Asus Cmaj7 Gmaj7 Am7/D

[Verse]
Asus                  Cmaj7        Gmaj7  Am7/D
And it's been a while since I could   hold my head up high
Asus               Cmaj7             Gmaj7   Am7/D
And it's been a while since I first saw you.
Asus                Cmaj7               Gmaj7       Am7/D
And it's been a while since I could stand on my own two feet again
Asus                 Cmaj7         Gmaj7     Am7/D
And it's been a while since I could call you

[Chorus]
Am            C            G     D7
And everything I can't remember,
Am             C             G   D7
as f***ed up as it all may seem,
Am           C                G      D7
the consequences that I've rendered,
Am              C             G     D7
I streched myself beyond my means.

[Verse]
Asus                Cmaj7           Gmaj7         Am7/D
And it's been a while since I could say that I wasn't addicted.
Asus                 Cmaj7         Gmaj7           Am7/D
And it's been a while since I could say I loved myself as well.
Asus                Cmaj7                 Gmaj7                   Am7/D
And it's been a while since I've gone and f***ed things up just like I always do.
Asus                 Cmaj7              Gmaj7          Am7/D
And it's been a while, but all that sh** seems to disappear when I'm with you.

[Chorus]
Am           C            G     D7
And everything I can't remember,
Am           C              G    D7
as f***ed up as it all may seem,
Am            C                G    D7
the consequences that I've rendered,
Am                C             G   D7
I've gone and f***ed things up again.

G D7 Am                     G   D7
      Why must I feel this way?
Am                  G   D7
Just make this go away.
Am                      G  D7  Am
Just one more peaceful day.

[Verse]
Asus                Cmaj7        Gmaj7  Am7/D
And it's been a while since I could look at myself straight.
Asus                Cmaj7              Gmaj7   Am7/D
And it's been a while since I said I'm sorry.
Asus               Cmaj7                   Gmaj7     Am7/D
And it's been a while since I've seen the way the candles light your face.
Asus                Cmaj7          Gmaj7           Am7/D 
And it's been a while, but I can still remember just the way you taste.

[Chorus]
Am         C               G    D7
And everything I can't remember,
Am             C            G         D7
As f***ed up as it all may seem to be, I know it's me.
Am         C                 G    D7
I cannot blame this on my father.
Am          C                G   D7
He did the best he could for me.

[Outro]
Asus                Cmaj7        Cmaj7  Am7/D
And it's been a-while since I could hold my head up high.
Asus                Cmaj7                Gmaj7*(let ring)  
And it's been a while since I said I'm sorry.

*You can also end on G


That's it! Easy chords and not too hard of a song.  Enjoy!

If it was off of sheet music, then Why didn't you put the notes on it in tab form??
