Verse 1
Ab      Bbm
   Oh, life is bigger
Fm
   It's bigger than you
            Bbm
And you are not me.
                        Fm
The lengths that I will go to,
                     Bbm
The distance in your eyes,
Fm                      Ebm
   Oh no, I've said too much,
         Ab
I set it up.



Chorus
                 Bbm
That's me in the corner,
                 Fm
That's me in the spotlight
            Bbm
Losing my religion.
          Fm
Trying to keep up with you.
      Bbm
And I don't know if I can do it.
Fm                      Ebm
   Oh no, I've said too much,
                Ab
I haven't said enough.



Bridge
  Ab                        Gb
I thought that I heard you laughing,
  Ebm             Ab         Bbm   Bbm     Bbm     Bbm  
I thought that I heard you sing.
Bbm Gb                 Gb   Ebm Ab   Bbm
I  think I thought I saw    you try.



Verse 2
Ab        Bbm                      Fm
   Every Whisper of every waking hour
                   Bbm
I'm choosing my confessions,
          Fm
Trying to keep an eye of you
       Bbm
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool
Fm                      Ebm
   Oh no, I've said too much,
         Ab
I set it up.



Verse 3
         Bbm
Consider this, consider this,
    Fm
The hint of a century,
         Bbm
Consider this: the slip
     Fm
That brought me to my knees failed.
Bbm
What if all these fantasies
     Fm
Come    flailing around?
         Ebm       Ab
Now I've said too much.



Bridge
  Ab                        Gb

  Ebm             Ab         Bbm   Bbm     Bbm     Bbm  
I thought that I heard you sing.
Bbm Gb                 Gb   Ebm Ab   Bbm    Ab
I  think I thought I saw    you try.

For strumming, I like to do DD-UU-D-U and repeat.

Ivy

The outro is:
A/-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-
E/—————-8-8-8-5-5-5-5-5

Repeat the sequence 3 times then

A/-7-5—5——
E/—-8-5-8-5-8-

Then Am chord. Sorry if thats confusing, but I tried.

That lone birb

If you want the pick pattern for the intro it’s

5-7-5—–
——–5– Then F for 2 bars
———–
———–

7-5-7-5—
———-5- Then Am for two bars
————-
————-

7-5-7-5—-
———-5– Then F for two bars
————-
————-

7-5-7-5—-
———-5- Then Am for two bars
————-
————-

Then the verse starts

susan

the A string open is the same as the E string five so you can do 5-7-5-0 7-5-7-0 and so on

maoruku

outro is going like (a string): 7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-3-0-5-3-0-3-0

susan

its supposed to be A-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5
E-8-8-8-5-5-5-5-5 repeated 3 times

Susan Smith

In the final bridge, shouldn’t it be “Try, fly, cry” instead of “Try, fly why”?

cannolicutie

What did you guys use as the strumming pattern?

Ivy

The 8-5 sequence doesn’t overlap the 7-5 sequence, it just submitted that way.

Susan Smith

Isn’t it “Try, cry, fly, try” in the final bridge?

DawnDanger

sofimontanes

julia
