Verse 1:
Ab                           Eb                 Fm  -Eb-
  I know the reason why you think you gotta leave
Db                                Ab                Eb
  Promises of future glory don't make a case for me
  Ab                               Eb               Fm
I did my best and all the rest is hidden by the clouds
 -Eb-    Db                      Eb               Ab
I can't carry you forever, but I can hold you now
 
Verse 2:
Ab                                Eb                     Fm  -Eb-
Leaving on your wedding day, all calm and dressed in white
Db                             Ab                Eb
All I'll keep's the memory of one last crooked night
    Ab                               Eb                Fm
The pews are getting filled up, the organ's playing loud
 -Eb-    Db                      Eb               Ab
I can't carry you forever, but I can hold you now

Alright
 
Chorus:
Ab             Eb          Fm  -Eb-
God, yu tekem laef blong mi
Db           Ab        Eb
Mi mi givim nao long yu
Ab             Eb   Fm  -Eb-
Bak mi giv mi evride
Db              Eb         Ab
Blong leftemap nem blong yu
 
Verse 3:
Ab                           Eb                Fm  -Eb-
  I know the reason why you think I oughta stay
Db                              Ab             Eb
  Funny how you're telling me on my wedding day
Ab                                   Eb                   Fm
Crying in those rumpled sheets like someone's 'bout to die
   -Eb-   Db                                       Eb              Ab
You just watch your mouth when talking 'bout the father of the bride
 
Verse 4:
Ab                                       Eb                    Fm  -Eb-
Why's your heart grown heavy, boy, when things were feeling light?
Db                              Ab                   Eb
Turning this June morning into some dark judgment night
     Ab                                   Eb             Fm
This ain't the end of nothing much, it's just another round
 -Eb-    Db                      Eb               Ab
I can't carry you forever, but I can hold you now
 
Chorus:
              Eb          Fm  -Eb-
God, yu tekem laef blong mi
Db           Ab        Eb
Mi mi givim nao long yu
Ab             Eb   Fm  -Eb-
Bak mi giv mi evride
Db              Eb         Ab
Blong leftemap nem blong yu
