Calling for You
[G] [G/F#] [Em]
[C]Well I [G]woke up this [G/F#]morning w[Em]ithout you,
[C]Don't ask me how but I [D]got through.
The [G]floor of this [G/F#]room I've been [Em]pacing,
Trying to [C]drown out the sound my heart is [D]making;
It's calling for [G]you.[G/F#] [Em] [C]
Oh we said it looks like we won't make it;
You hurt me, I hurt you, and we can't take it.
So we fixed it we thought just by leaving,
But the heart is too wise for deceiving.
It's calling for [G]you,[G/F#] oh, [Em]oh,[D] [G]oh[G/F#], [Em]oh.[D]
[C]You've had enough, I know [Bm]I've had enough,
And we [C]don't know what else now to [D]do.
We could [C]both walk away but there's [Bm]too much at stake
You love [C]me and I know I love [D]you.
I walked over and I opened the curtain;
It's pouring down rain and man I'm hurtin'.
Well the phone on the table is ringing
And I knew before I heard you speaking,
You were calling for me, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Oh I woke up this morning without you,
Don't ask me how but I got through.
The floor of this room I was pacing,
Trying to drown out the sound my heart was making;
It was calling for y[G]ou[G/F#].
[C]Calling for [G]you[G/F#],[Em]
[C]Calling for [G]you,[G/F#] oh, [Em]oh, [D]oh, [G]oh.[C] [G]
