Intro: E  B

E                                  B
   Well this is just a simple song
E                           B
  to say what you done
E                                B
I told you about all those fears
E
and away they did run. You sure must
      A    B A B
be strong...
A               B       A                    B   E B E B
 and you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun


E        B       E             B
When I was just nine years old
E               B  E      B
  I swear that I dreamt
 E              B     E
   Your face on a football field
 B E               B     E
and a kiss that I kept
   B       A    B A B
Under my vest,
A          B       A                 B      E B E B
apart from everything but the heart in my chest

Chorus:
C#m      B         E                 B    A            B      A   B
    I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
C#m      B        E                B    A             B       A   B
    Don't go thinking you got to be tough, and play like a stone
C#m       B            E                    B    A    B   A   B    A        B         A
    Could be there's nothing else in our lives so critical      As this little home!


E        B         E          B
 My life in an upturned boat,
E             B       E         B
   marooned on a cliff
E               B     E
   You brought me a great big flood
 B E               B   E
and you gave me a lift
        B      A      B
Girl, what a gift
A                 B         A
 And you tell me with your tongue and your
             B       A                    B            -Bm-
 breath goes in my lungs and we float above the rift

Chorus:
C#m      B         E                 B    A            B      A   B
    I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
C#m      B        E                B    A             B       A   B
    Don't go thinking you got to be tough, and play like a stone
C#m       B            E                    B    A    B   A   B    A        B         A
    Could be there's nothing else in our lives so critical      As this little home!

Interlude: F#m  C#m  F#m  C#m  F#m  C#m  A


E                                  B
   Well this is just a simple song
E                           B
  to say what you done
E                                B
I told you about all those fears
E
and away they did run. You sure must
      A    B A B
be strong...
A               B       A                    B   E B E B
 and you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun


C#m      B        E                  B    A            B      A   B
    Remember walking the mile to your house aglow in the dark
C#m      B       E                B     A                B       A   B
    I made a fumbling play for your heart and the axe struck a spark
C#m      B       E                     B    A            B   A    B
   You wore a charm on the chain that I stole especial for you
C#m         B       E                  B  A                B       A   B
   Loves such a delicate thing that we do , with nothing to prove


A            B   A   B   E
  Which I never knew!
