remember keys
     A           E
Your eyes they tie
   Dbm       E
me down so hard
     A      E           B     E
i'll never learn to put up a guard
  A         E
so keep my love
   Dbm      E
my candle bright
    A     E        B       E
learn me hard, oh learn me right


     A        E
this ain't no sham
  A         E
i am what i am


       A      E
though i may speak
     Dbm         E
some tongue of old
   A         E        B     E
or even spit out some holy word
  A        E
i have no strength
     Dbm       E
from which to speak
         A      E         B       E
when you sit me down, and see i'm weak


        A       E
we will run and scream
         A          Dbm
you will dance with me
        A           E 
they'll fulfill our dreams
              B
and we'll be free


            A         E
and we will be who we are
            A        Dbm 
and they'll heal our scars
                 E   B
sadness will be far away


   A     E
So as we walked
        A          Dbm
through fields of green
       A       E       B     E
as the fairest sun i'd ever seen
      A    E
and i was broke
      A      Dbm
i was on my knees
    A        E      B      E
but you said yes as i said please


     A        E
this ain't no sham
  A         E
i am what i am

  A         E
i leave no ties
      A       E
for a cynics mind


        A       E
we will run and scream
         A          Dbm
you will dance with me
        A           E 
they'll fulfill our dreams
              B
and we'll be free


            A         E
and we will be who we are
            A        Dbm 
and they'll heal our scars
                 E  B
sadness will be far away


        Dbm            A           B
do not let my fickle flesh go to waste
       Dbm        A                      B
as it keeps my heart and soul in it's place
            Dbm        A                     E
and i will love with urgency but not with haste

    The chords are easier if you take the song down 4 steps and then put a capo on the fourth fret.
