[E]> [---]
{notice that the majority of this song follows the pattern:
G / D / Em / Am D7sus2 It's really cool how the progression
starts out on Am but in the middle of the song, the verse starts
pretty much on G.}

My [Em]hands tired, my [Am]heart aches.
I'm [G]half a world away[D] here, [Dsus4]       [D]   [Dsus2]     my h[Em]ead sworn to [F]go it alone,
[F]and hold it along, [D]haul it along [Dsus4]      and [D]hold [Dsus4]it.[D] [Dsus2]
[F]Go it alone, and hold it along.   [D]Oh.....[Dsus4].........[D]..

[Dsus4]Oh     [D]   [Dsus2]      lone[G]ly world is [D]wasted.[Dsus4] [D] [Dsus2]
[Em]Pathetic eyes, [Am]high alive.[G]
[D]Blind to the tide [Dsus4]       [D]  [Dsus2]      that [Em]turns the sea.[Am]
This [G]storm it came up strong.[D] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus2]
It [Em]shook the trees and [Am]blew away our fear.[G]
I [D]couldn't ev[Dsus4]en     [D]   [Dsus2]  hear.[Em]
To g[F]o it alone, and hold it along, [D]haul it along,[Dsus4]       and[D] hold[Dsus4] it.[D] [Dsus2]
[F]Go it alone, and hold it along.   [D]Oh.....[Dsus4].........[D]..

I [Em]ever seen  [Am]    turn to a [G]miracle,  [D]   [Dsus4]      hig[D]h  [Dsus2]alive.[Em]
[Am]My mind is [G]racing,  [D]   [Dsus4]       as [D]it [Dsus2]  al--[Em]ways will.
My [Am]hands tired, my h[G]eart aches.
I'm h[D]alf a world [Dsus4]       a  [D]-   wa[Dsus2]y.[Em]
