When you were born you were not alone
                            GG chord

You heard someone say it won't get better than this

That was the sound of your father
AA chord                                   GG chord
As he held you up to your mother

No one will ever know,

The prologue to the tale that you're spinning
EmEm chord                      DD chord                      AA chord
a million synonyms will never come close to describe the feeling

      Don't ever leave, cause if you do dear
        BmBm chord                 GG chord
I guarantee that you'll regret the day you did
                DD chord
and you'll miss all the simple things

And you'll see everything you've ever loved

start fading till there's nothing left oh

BmBm chord      DD chord          AA chord            GG chord                BmBm chord
And I believe that every broken bone is meant to be
BmBm chord          DD chord                AA chord
And when it heals it will be stronger than it was before
BmBm chord    DD chord        AA chord                GG chord                 BmBm chord
And I see, the things that I pretend that I don't see
BmBm chord    DD chord                AA chord
And I keep them in my head love
 
If only for memories

DD chord                                AA chord
So now you're young and you feel alone
                                   GG chord
Despite friends family and all the good things now surrounding you
    DD chord                                AA chord                     DD chord
You can't help thinking that there's gotta be some more to do
DD chord                                     AA chord
When all the things that you cherish
AA chord                                   GG chord
Turn into burdens and there is
GG chord
No other path to take, 
    DD chord                       AA chord                     DD chord
you know what you've got to do but you don't know how
 
 
DD chord             AA chord                  EmEm chord
They hold you back they hold you down
           DD chord                      AA chord
And you're gonna feel bad but you know that you've gotta get out
DD chord
This is your pain your dilemma

Do you stay in the town where they raised ya
EmEm chord                     DD chord                      AA chord
Or will you sail away, pull the anchor and go headed for the come-what-may?

             BmBm chord                 GG chord
you'll never see the things you read about in books
            DD chord
you saw the films and you were hooked
         AA chord
but everything you want won't come to you
                                              BmBm chord
you realize now that you've gotta go see this through

So now you're old raising your own
                             GG chord
Two souls to make yourself a home, you finally settled down
       DD chord                       AA chord                     DD chord
you've seen the world but your heart never left this town
DD chord                                   AA chord
They have the eyes of their mother
AA chord                                         GG chord
The kind of crooked teeth of their father
GG chord
No one will ever know
  DD chord                   AA chord                     DD chord
a love as pure as the one that you feel for them
 
 
DD chord                AA chord                   EmEm chord
You'll hold them up you'll hold them up
    DD chord                   AA chord
And everybody else will fall to the wayside
DD chord
There is no end no beginning
AA chord
On this merry-go-round we call living
EmEm chord                        DD chord                          AA chord
Some day you will return, every single ounce of the love you were given
 
 
GG chord GG chord GG chord                  DD chord DD chord DD chord            AA chord AA chord AA chord
      Someday they'll go, and when they leave home
             BmBm chord               GG chord
you will be grateful for the lesson that you learned
            DD chord
you had to travel half the world
       AA chord
to realize what you knew all along
                                       BmBm chord
that everything will end up where it belongs
