Eb                         Ab       Eb
An eight year old girl had a panic attack
          Eb                         Ab            Bb
Cause the father she loved left and never looked back
   Ab                   Bb       Cm   Eb  
No longer the hero she counted on
   Ab                         Bb            Eb
He told her he loved her and then he was gone


    Eb                      Ab               Eb
She tried to look happy in front of her friends
    Eb                          Ab       Bb
But knew that she'd never feel normal again
    Ab                             Bb          Cm    Eb  
She fought back the tears as they filled her eyes
    Ab                       Bb            Eb
She wanted him back just to tell him goodbye


          Ab           Cm   
When the rain falls down
         Ab          Bb
When it all turns around
          Ab          Cm                
When the light goes out
               Bb
This isn't the end


    F                       Bb         F
Her dad was a good guy that everyone liked
    F                  Bb       C
But nobody knew he was dying inside
   Bb                        C    Dm     F  
He promised his family he'd be alright
    Bb                      C           F
And then with a gunshot he left them behind


          Bb           Dm   
When the rain falls down
         Bb          C
When it all turns around
          Bb          Dm -x2-      
When the light goes out
               C
This isn't the end -no oh-


    G                   C       G
The role of a father he never deserved
    G                         C       D
He abandoned his daughter and never returned
    C                         D        Em     G  
And over the years though the pain was real
    C                       D          Em   D
She finally forgave him and started to heal


    G                         C       G
How close is the ending? Well nobody knows
    G                      C        D
The future's a mystery and anything goes
C                     D       Em    G  
Love is confusing and life is hard
    C                       D                Em   G     
You fight to survive 'cause you made it this far
     C                     D      Em    G  
It's all too astounding to comprehend
     C                        D          Em    G  
It's just the beginning, this isn't the end
     C                        D          G
It's just the beginning, this isn't the end
