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



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



Bridge
  Eb                        Db
I thought that I heard you laughing,

I thought that I heard you sing.
Fm Db                 Db   Bbm Eb   Fm
I  think I thought I saw    you try.



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



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



Bridge
  Eb                        Db

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
