A Letter to Elise

-----------------

 

A E

oh elise it doesn't matter what you say

Bm

I just can't stay here every yesterday

D

like keep on acting out the same

 

the way we act out

A

every way to smile

 

forget

E

and make-believe we never needed

Bm

any more than this

D

any more than this

 

A E

oh elise it doesn't matter what you do

Bm

I know i'll never really get inside of you

D

to make your eyes catch fire

 

the way they should

A

the way the blue could pull me in

E

if they only would

 

if they only would

Bm D

at least I'd lose this sense of sensing something else

 

that hides away

A

from me and you

 

there're worlds to part

E

with aching looks and breaking hearts

Bm

and all the prayers your hands can make

D

oh I just take as much as you can throw

A

and then I throw it all away

E

oh I throw it all away

Bm

like throwing faces at the sky

D

like throwing arms around

E

yesterday

 

I stood and stared

F#m

wide-eyed in front of you

E

and the face I saw looked back

F#m

the way I wanted to

E

but I just can't hold my tears away

F#m

the way you do

 

G F#m

elise believe I never wanted this

G F#m

I thought this time I'd keep all of my promises

G F#m

I thought you were the girl always dreamed about

Bm

but I let the dream go

D

and the promises broke

A

and the make-believe ran out...

 

A

so elise

E

it doesn't matter what you say

Bm

I just can't stay here every yesterday

D

like keep on acting out the same

 

the way we act out

A

every way to smile

 

forget

E

and make-believe we never needed

Bm

any more than this

D

any more than this

 

A E

and every time I try to pick it up

 

like falling sand

Bm

as fast as I pick it up

D

it runs away through my clutching hands

A

and there's nothing else I can really do

E

there's nothing else I can really do

Bm

there's nothing else I can really do

D

at all...

VERSE A//// E/// F#M/// D///

 

OH, ELISE IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT YOU SAY

JUST CANT STAY HERE EVERY YESTERDAY

KEEP ON ACTING, ACTING OUT THE SAMR WE ACT OUT

YESTERDAY TO SMILE FORGET

AND MAKE BELIEVE WE NEVER NEEDED ANY MORE THAN THIS

ANYMORE THAN THIS.

 

OH,ELISE IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT YOU SAY

I KNOW ILL NEVER REALLY GET INSIDE OF YOU

TO MAKE YOUR EYES CATCH FIRE THE WAY THEY SHOULD.

IF THE BLUE COULD PULL ME IN IF THEY ONLY COULD

IF THEY ONLY WOULD

PERHAPS ID LOSE THIS SENSE OF SENSING SOMETHING ELSE THAT HIDES AWAY

FROM ME TO YOU THEY'RE WORLD'S APART

WITH ACHING LIPS AND BREAKING HEARTS

AND ALL THE PRYERS YOUR HANDS CAN MAKE

OH I JUST TAKE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN THROW THEN GIVE IT ALL AWAY

OH I GIVE IT ALL AWAY

LIKE THROWING HALOS AT THE SKY

OH YESTERDAY I STOOD AND STARED WIDED EYED IN FRONT OF YOU

AND THE FACE I SAW LOOKED BACK THE WAY I WANTED TO

BUT I JUST CANT HOLD BACK MY TEARS THE WAY YOU DO

ELISE BELIEVE I NEVER WANTED THIS

I THOUGHT THIS TIME I'D KEEP ALL OF MY PROMISES

I THOUGHT YOU WERE THE GIRL I ALWAYS DREAMED ABOUT

BUT I LET THE DREAM GO

AND THE PROMISES WERE THE MAKE BELIEVE THAT I........

 

mAD solo

 

REPEAT 1ST VERSE

SPOKEN PART

EVERY TIME TRY TO PICK IT UP LIKE FALLING RAIN

AS FAST AS I PICK IT UP IT RUNS AWAY THROUGH MY CLUTCHING HANDS

OH THERES NOTHING MORE I CAN REALLY DO

THERES NOTHING MORE I CAN REALLY SAY

THERE'S NOTHING MORE I CAN REALLY DO AT ALL.
