Intro: G G - D D - Em Em - C C x2 (let it fade)
G G
All of these lines across my face
D D
Tell you the story of who I am
Em Em
So many stories of where I've been
C C
And how I got to where I am
G G D D
But these stories don't mean anything
Em Em C C
When you've got no one to tell them to
G G D D G G
It's true...I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
D D
Swam all across the ocean blue
Em Em
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
C C
But baby I broke them all for you
G G D D
Because even when I was flat broke
Em Em C C
You made me feel like a million bucks
G G
You do
D D G G
I was made for you

You see the smile that's on my mouth
D D
It's hiding the words that don't come out
Em Em
And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
C C
They don't know my head is a mess
G G D D
No, they don't know who I really am
Em Em
And they don't know what
C C G G
I've been through like you do
D D G G
And I was made for you...

All of these lines across my face
D D
Tell you the story of who I am
Em Em
So many stories of where I've been
C C
And how I got to where I am
G G D D
But these stories don't mean anything
Em Em C C
When you've got no one to tell them to
G G D D G G
It's true...I was made for you
