D                               A
When you were born you were not alone
                            G
Nothing was carved into the stone quite yet, but don't forget
    D                    A                     D
You heard someone say it won't get better than this
D                                    A
That was the sound of your father
A                                   G
As he held you up to your mother
G
No one will ever know,
  D                  A                       D
a love a pure as the one that you felt right then


D              A                Em
They held you up, they held you up
    D                   A
And everybody else they fell to the wayside
D
This is the start the beginning
A
The prologue to the tale that you're spinning
Em                      D                      A
a million synonyms will never come close to describe the feeling


G G G            D D D               A A A
      Don't ever leave, cause if you do dear
        Bm                 G
I guarantee that you'll regret the day you did
                D
and you'll miss all the simple things
                A
And you'll see everything you've ever loved
                                           Bm
start fading till there's nothing left oh

Chorus:
Bm      D          A            G                Bm
And I believe that every broken bone is meant to be
Bm          D                A
And when it heals it will be stronger than it was before
Bm    D        A                G                 Bm
And I see, the things that I pretend that I don't see
Bm    D                A
And I keep them in my head love

If only for memories

Interlude -x4-: A  D  A  D

D                                A
So now you're young and you feel alone
                                   G
Despite friends family and all the good things now surrounding you
    D                                A                     D
You can't help thinking that there's gotta be some more to do
D                                     A
When all the things that you cherish
A                                   G
Turn into burdens and there is
G
No other path to take,
    D                       A                     D
you know what you've got to do but you don't know how


D             A                  Em
They hold you back they hold you down
           D                      A
And you're gonna feel bad but you know that you've gotta get out
D
This is your pain your dilemma
A
Do you stay in the town where they raised ya
Em                     D                      A
Or will you sail away, pull the anchor and go headed for the come-what-may?


G G G             D D D               A A A
      You have to leave, cause if you don't dear
             Bm                 G
you'll never see the things you read about in books
            D
you saw the films and you were hooked
         A
but everything you want won't come to you
                                              Bm
you realize now that you've gotta go see this through

Chorus:
Bm      D          A            G                Bm
And I believe that every broken bone is meant to be
Bm          D                A
And when it heals it will be stronger than it was before
Bm    D        A                G                 Bm
And I see, the things that I pretend that I don't see
Bm    D                A
And I keep them in my head love

If only for memories

G  D  F# Bm  -x3-
F  C  E

D                              A
So now you're old raising your own
                             G
Two souls to make yourself a home, you finally settled down
       D                       A                     D
you've seen the world but your heart never left this town
D                                   A
They have the eyes of their mother
A                                         G
The kind of crooked teeth of their father
G
No one will ever know
  D                   A                     D
a love as pure as the one that you feel for them


D                A                   Em
You'll hold them up you'll hold them up
    D                   A
And everybody else will fall to the wayside
D
There is no end no beginning
A
On this merry-go-round we call living
Em                        D                          A
Some day you will return, every single ounce of the love you were given


G G G                  D D D            A A A
      Someday they'll go, and when they leave home
             Bm               G
you will be grateful for the lesson that you learned
            D
you had to travel half the world
       A
to realize what you knew all along
                                       Bm
that everything will end up where it belongs

Chorus:
Bm      D          A            G                Bm
And I believe that every broken bone is meant to be
Bm          D                A
And when it heals it will be stronger than it was before
Bm    D        A                G                 Bm
And I see, the things that I pretend that I don't see
Bm    D                A
And I keep them in my head love

If only for memories
