  Dm          Bb
A drop in the ocean,
  F             C
A change in the weather,
      Dm           Bb               F         C
I was praying that you and me might end up together.
          Dm          Bb         F           C
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert,
        Dm          Bb          F
But I'm holding you closer than most,
       C          Bb
'Cause you are my heaven.


        Bb              F
I don't wanna waste the weekend,
   C                  Dm
If you don't love me, pretend
  Bb            F           C
A few more hours, then it's time to go.
      Bb                   F
As my train rolls down the East coast,
  C                 Dm
I wonder how you'll keep warm.
     Bb          F        C
It's too late to cry, too broken to move on.


Gm         F  C
Still I can't let you be,
Gm         F  C
Most nights I hardly sleep.
Gm         F  C               Bb
Don't take what you don't need from me.


  Dm          Bb
A drop in the ocean,
  F             C
A change in the weather,
      Dm           Bb               F         C
I was praying that you and me might end up together.
          Dm          Bb         F           C
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert,
        Dm          Bb          F
But I'm holding you closer than most,
       C          Bb
'Cause you are my heaven.


Bb                 F
Misplaced trust and old friends,
C              Dm
Never counting regrets,
       Bb           F               C
By the grace of God, I do not rest at all.
    Bb            F
New England as the leaves change;
    C                Dm
The last excuse that I'll claim,
        Bb               F              C
I was a boy who loved a woman like a little girl.


Gm         F  C
Still I can't let you be,
Gm         F  C
Most nights I hardly sleep.
Gm         F  C               Bb
Don't take what you don't need from me.

Gm             F         C
Heaven doesn't seem far away anymore.
Gm             F         C
Heaven doesn't seem far away.
Gm             F         C
Heaven doesn't seem far away anymore.
Gm             F         C
Heaven doesn't seem far away.
