to watch you numb

I saw you there

Em Am Em (with Fig1)

you were on your way

Em Am Dsus2 (with Fig2)

you held the rain and for the first time

 

Em Am Em (with Fig1)

heaven seemed insane

Em Am Em (with Fig1)

cause heaven is to blame

for taking you away

in gray afternoons

in nitrous overcast

do you know the way that I can't choose?

do you know the things that I can?

do you know the things that I can't lose?
