Intro:
            Am
Needed some time
           F
So I could find
          G
A little strength
     C
to redefine
G/B         Am
What I’ve become
            F
What I have done
        G
I never asked
to be the one


Distortion: Am--Em--F--G-- x2


Verse 1:
Am            C
I’m riding it out
      F
This storm that
            G
you brought in
            Am
Bringing it down
         C
I’ll be around
    F         G
For you I go again
           Am
It’s gotta be
        F
Easy to see
          G
What everyone
             C
takes out of me
G/B         Am
Knocking me down
            F
Dragging me out
            G
How did you end
up in that crowd?


Chorus:
Am
  Did you run away?
Did you fall apart?
Em
  Do you see yourself
for what you are?
F
  Will you be looking
       G
for it anymore?
When five becomes four
Am
  When you’re all alone
with the melody
Em
  Do you close your eyes
And think of me?
F
  Will you still hear me
        G
singing anymore?
When five becomes four


Verse 2:
Am           C
Try and put aside
     F           G
Your history and pride
          Am
Maybe for one
          C
Moment in time
      F              G
We’ll all be on your side
          Am
The story goes
       F
Nobody knows
            G
What it was like
               C
when you would throw
Dm          Am
Someone who cared
           F
Out in the air
Then let them
G                  F(hold)
crash down anywhere


(Remember Chorus)


Interlude: F--Dm--


Bridge:
             F
Remember the line
Never say die
             Dm
You were the reason
I survived
              F
Where did you go?
I need to know
         Dm
I waited here
you never showed
          F
Its gonna be
Harder for me
           Dm
I can’t forgive
so many things
                 F
When you weren’t there
I was around
          Dm
Why would try
and hurt me now
             C/E F G Am
Just tell me why
             C/E F G Am
Just tell me why
             G/B C Dm Am
Just tell me why

Now I can't remember why I let you in again

10.) Dear Bobbie

The solo that is performed while Ryan Key´s grandfather speaks (Base guitar: C, Em) is
by the keyboards, you can do it using the guitar though... It´s something like this:

G|----9---7---5---4-2-4----


Dear Bobbie,
(C, Em)
Do you remember when you were young and very pretty? I do, I remember pleated skirts,
black and white sattle shoes. Do you remember dancing that night?
I do, I still think of you when we dance, although we cant jitterbug as we did then.


Verse 1:
C                 Am
  Do you remember when
                C
How long has it been?
   Am                   F
1945 you opened my blue eyes
                   G
To see a whole new life
                C
Do you remember when
                     Am
I told you this that night,
                     C
That if you're by my side
              Am
When everyday begins
                   F
I'll fall for you again
                 G
I made a promise when
                     C
I told you this that night


Chorus:
            F
And I'll be fine
             C           G          Am
Cause when I die, then I die loving you
       C              F
It's alright, I'll be fine
             C           G          Am
Cause when I die then I die loving you
       Dm  F      (C,Em)
Loving you, loving you

(C, Em)
Do you remember the times we would give up on each other and get back together,
then we finally was married in 1949. We drove the yellow convertible all night long.
Do you remember? I do.


Verse 2:
C                 Am
  Life has led us here
                   C
Together all these years
                        Am
This house that we have made
                      F
Holds twenty-thousand days
                   G
And memories we've saved
                       C
Since life has lead us here


(Repeat Chorus)


Interlude: C-Em-C-Em-F-G


Verse 3:
C(hold)              Am(hold)
  I'm coming home to you
                C(hold)
Stepping off my shoes
              Am(hold)
Resting in my chair
                 F(hold)
See you standing there
                   G(hold)
The silver in your hair
                   C
I'm coming home to you
           Am                       C
When I lay tonight, when I close my eyes
                    Am
I know the sun will rise
              F
Here the next life
                      G              C
As long as your still mine, then its alright


(Repeat chorus)


(C, Em)
You have gray hair now but you're a beautiful women and the years have been good to both
us.
We walk slow now, but we still have each other. The glue of love is still bonding us together.
That is what I remember. Do you remember?

Verse:
Am
  This is the deepest cut I
C
  Think I have ever felt
Am
  These are the things I
          Em     G
think but I will never
    Am
tell I'm trying to

walk these bridges
C                    G/B
  Burning beneath my feet
Am
  Well I am an echo I am
Em        G
heard but never seen


Chorus 1:
C         F
These are your
            Am
hearts Like bombs
they're coming down
        F
They're falling on me now
    C       F
And this my last try
    Am
Got one thing left to prove
          F
There's a bomber in me too


Verse 2:
Am
  This is a mirror image
C
  Of everything I'm not
Am
  Always reflecting what I've
Em          G
learned but was not taught
Am
  If I could make things different
C
  If I could press restart
Am
  Then I would hold back every
F
breath that went too far
G
breath that went too far


(Repeat Chorus 1)


Interlude: C--


Bridge:
C
  Sometimes I feel like
     Dm
I am working in the dark
F
  Collecting names collecting
C
all the mending hearts
Dm
  And if your one that I
     F
have missed along the way
Am
  Then I'm rehearsing all
    G
the things I'd like to say
Dm
  This isn't easy for me
F
  This isn't easy


(Repeat Chorus 1)


Chorus 2:
C         G/B
These are your
            Am
hearts Like bombs
they're coming down
        F
They're falling on me now
    C       G/B
And this my last try
    Am
Got one thing left to prove
          F(hold)
There's a bomber in me too
