Intro -x2-: D  G  A

D                     G
 So the story goes on down
          A         D
 The less-traveled road
                  G      A         Bm
 It's a variation on the one I was told
                           G   A
 And although it's not the same
            Em      G  -A-
 It's awful close, yeah


D               G    A     D
 In an ordinary fairytale land
                        G       A     Bm
 There's a promise of a perfect happy end
                      G    A          Em
 And I imagine having just short of that
                A
 Is better than nothing


             D       A               Bm    G
So you'll be mine forever and almost always
            D          A                G     A
And I'll be fine; just love me when you can, yeah
         G           A
And I'll wait patiently
     D             Bm              Em A
I'll wake up every day just hoping that
          D   G A -x2-
You still care


D                    G
 In the corner of my mind
   A
 I know too well
D
 Oh, that surely even
 G   A          Bm
 I deserve the best

 But instead of leaving
 G              A        Em
 I just put the issue to bed
               G  A
 And out of my head


D                  G
 And just when I believe
        A
 You've changed for good
D                          G
 Well, you go and prove me wrong
             A
 Just like I knew you would
Bm                        G
 When I run out of second chances
     A            Em
 You give me that look
                    A
 And you're off the hook


                D      A               Bm    G
Because you're mine forever and almost always
           D          A                G     A
Oh and I'm fine, just love me when you can, yeah
         G           A
And I'll wait patiently
     D             Bm              Em A
I'll wake up every day just hoping that
          G
You still care


 A   Bm
Oh, oh
Em
What am I still doing here?
G A Em
Oh, oh
     C            D  A
It's all becoming so clear


          D       A               Bm    G
You'll be mine forever and almost always
         D             A                G    A
It ain't right to just love me when you can, oh
        G           A
I won't wait patiently
   D             Bm              Em A
Or wake up every day just hoping that
             D
You'll still care


   A               Bm
Forever and almost always
G            D             A                G      A
No, it ain't right to just love me when you can, baby
            G           A
Ain't gonna wait patiently
        D             Bm              Em A
I won't wake up every day just hoping that
          D   G A -x4-
You still care
