Intro: Bb  Cm  F

Bb                                        Cm   F
In the morning when the world came awake
Bb                                 Cm     F            
Before you knew me I knew your name 
Bb                                         Cm    F
It was painted across the day as it breaks 
Bb                               Cm    F
An impression in your window frame 


Cm
When you saw me out your window 
F
Singing from the garden 
Cm
Only the beginning 
F
I'm only getting started 
Cm
I don't mind the digging 
F
Baby, I'll work harder 
Cm
I've been washing dishes 
F
Singing from the bottom 


Bb                                   Cm   F
But one day I'll be running this place 
Bb                             Cm   F
And one day I could take you away 
Bb                                     Cm   F
But I want you to wonder what's my name 
Bb                                  Cm   F
Because I need you to want me the same 


Cm
When you saw me washing dishes 
F
Singing from the bottom 
Cm
Only the beginning 
F
I'm only getting started 
Cm
I don't mind the digging
F 
Baby, I'll work harder 
Cm
I've been in the ashes 
F
Singing from the garden 


Bb                                   Cm   F
Where everything reaches for the sun 
Bb                                  Cm  F
Still unsure of what we'll become 
Bb                               Cm  F
But I need you to reach out to me 
Bb                                Cm  F
See in me more than I could see 
Because I'm afraid that 


Cm               Eb
One day is only two words we say 
Bb                        F
I don't want to let them get in the way 
Cm                   Eb                         Bb
Of all the plans that we should be making right now 
     F
Right now 


Cm                      Eb
Who took the time and where did they take it 
Bb
I want to take it back 
       F
I dont want them to break it 
Cm                  Eb                           Bb
All these plans that we should be making right now
     F
Right now 

Interlude: Bb Cm F

Bb                                        Cm  F
You see one day I'll be running this place 
Bb                               Cm  F
And one day I could take you away 
Bb                                       Cm  F
But I want you to wonder what's my name 
Bb                                    Cm  F
Because I need you to want me the same

I'm only getting started

I don't mind the digging

I've been washing dishes

Singing from the bottom

I don't want to let them get in the way 
Cm                   Eb                           Bb
Of all the plans that we should be making right now
        F 
Right now 


Cm                       Eb
Who took the time and where did they take it

      F

Cm                   Eb                         Bb
All these plans that we should be making right now

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
