X - means don't strum that string
Make sure you play each chord like it is listed above
or it won't sound right. I'm unsure about the C chord
if it is in fact a C, but It'll do.
Repeat this chord progression throughout every verse
[G] Out my window [Bm] A mem[C]ory[D]
I'm dyi[G]n' inside [Bm] I know the way[C] it should be[D]
Though it w[G]as right [Bm] In front[C] of me[F#m]
It's somethi[G]ng I just[C] couldn't see[D]
Your lonely face, your lonely eyes
This is something you can't disguise
It's not just me, you feel it too
'Cause you know I belong with you
Look [D]at where we're [F#m]going tell me [Am]what can I [G]say
We're [C]tracing our footsteps, we're [D]going the same way
[G]Madeline, [Em]here we go [Am]around again[D]
You [G]know it, I [Em]know it, don't [Am]try to pretend[D]
You [G]know it could be [Am]so much better [Em]than it's been[D]
A[C]oooooooooooooh, here we go [D]around again
I was empty inside, but I just didn't know
You were my ten thousand roses and I let you go
Before I make the same mistake just hold me in your arms
We belong you know it in your heart
Look at where we're going, no doubt in my mind
Can't you see It's meant to be ooohooohoooooh my
Repeat Chorus
(Now there's this funky bridge part with no words, and I
Don't hear any guitar, so I don't play anything)
Look at where we're going, tell me what can I say
We're tracing our footsteps, we're going the same way, oh my
Repeat Chorus 2x and fade out.
There it is! Hope you enjoy playing my favorite song!!!
