Intro: Gsus4   Cadd9


Verse1:
      Gsus4                            Cadd9
Don't cry, try not to wait up for me tonight
                                    Gsus4
I'm leaving for the future and it's bright
                                        Cadd9
Being swept off my feet like a drifting kite


Verse2:
    Gsus4                                 Cadd9
And I'm regretting all the choices that I make
                                    Gsus4
But I know we can learn from our mistakes
                                   Cadd9
With every single new step that we take


Bridge:
  Gsus4
I don't repeat myself I'm not a parrot
Cadd9
You know how I feel and that's apparent
    Em
Our final move's to win or lose
    D                            Cadd9
And I can't make you choose, it's up to you


Chorus:
                  Gsus4
And I told you my roots will keep me honest
          Cadd9
I'll be a good boy, that I promise
     Em                                     Cadd9
If I said that I won't leave then I'll stay true
                   Gsus4
And I told you, my roots will keep me honest
             Cadd9
If there's a bus home I'll be on it
       Em
When I told you I'm not leaving you'll
   Cadd9                               - Gsus4 -
Believe it when you see I'm back for you


Interlude: Gsus4   Cadd9


Verse3:
    Gsus4                                  Cadd9
Sit tight I'm up around the world to do my thing
                                 Gsus4
And every word you say I'm listening
                                   Cadd9
And when I wake up it will just be me


Bridge:
  Gsus4
I might repeat myself am I a parrot
Cadd9
You know how I feel and that's apparent
    Em
Our final move's to win or lose
    D                            Cadd9
And I can't make you choose, it's up to you


Chorus:
                  Gsus4
And I told you my roots will keep me honest
          Cadd9
I'll be a good boy, that I promise
     Em                                     Cadd9
If I said that I won't leave then I'll stay true
                   Gsus4
And I told you, my roots will keep me honest
             Cadd9
If there's a bus home I'll be on it
       Em
When I told you I'm not leaving you'll
   Cadd9                               Gsus4
Believe it when you see I'm back for you
