C chordC Gm chordGm F chordF
When I was younger I saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind
C chordC Gm chordGm F chordF
He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to re-assemble it
C chordC Gm chordGm F chordF
And my mama swore that she would never let herself forget

And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love

if it does not exist but darling

VERSE2

... Gm chordGm F chordF
Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts
C chordC Gm chordGm
And we've got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a straight
F chordF
face
C chordC Gm chordGm F chordF
And I've always lived like this keeping a comfortable distance
C chordC Gm chordGm
And up until now I had sworn to myself that I'm content with

loneliness

Because none of it was ever worth the risk

Let go of what's in front of me here

Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream whoa
