[intro]

G  D  Am  Em  Am  Bm  C  (2x)


[verse1]
     G      D   Am  Em
Been waiting to find
Am                   D
you could've been happier given the time
        G      D    Am  Em
If he'd make up his mind
           Am            Bm               C
You'd give yourself to anybody  who would cross that line


[chorus]
           C       D         Em
And it was never a question
       Am     Bm   C
He was crowing for repair
               C        D
You'd give him love and affection
    Em           D            C
But you couldn't keep him there

[verse2]
     G  D      Am  Em
Get over  regrets
               Am                              D
While you were sleeping with the angels he was under the bed
         G     D              Am  Em
And the more skin   that you shed
                  Am                  Bm
The more that the air in your throat will linger
         C
when you call him your friend


[chorus]
           C       D         Em
And it was never a question
       Am     Bm   C
He was crowing for repair
               C        D
You'd give him love and affection
    Em           D            C
But you couldn't keep him there


[bridge]
Em           F
Staring at a cold little hand
        C                D
Reading fault lines in a shell of a man
         Em            F
You were waiting for a word from above
C
Wouldn't you know it
C
No answer ever did come


[chorus2]
           C       D         Em
And it was never a question
         Am      Bm   C
You were crowing for repair
               C        D
You'd give him love and affection
    Em           D            C
But you couldn't keep him there
