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

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

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

G G D D G G D D G G D D G G D D
My life in an upturned boat, marooned on a cliff
G G D D G G D D G G D D G G
You brought me a great big flood and you gave me a lift
D D C C D D C C D D C C
Girl, what a gift And you tell me with your tongue and your
D D C C D D (Em Em)
breath goes in my lungs and we float above the rift

Chorus, then break: Am Am Em Em Am Am Em Em(add C C) Am Am Em Em C C

Repeat first verse Well this is just a...

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

C C D D C C D D G G
Which I never knew!
