The Day You Took the Good Away  Front Porch Step

Capo 5th
Intro: C G Am G(Em works here as well)
[F] [G] [Am] [G]  
[C]I saw you st[G]anding on that br[Am]idge[G]
[F]Right then I knew the [G]life that I woul[Am]d like to live[G]
[C]Your frizzy [G]hair tangled my m[Am]ind[G]
[F]Right then I k[G]new that I woul[Am]d love you for all [G]time
[C]You ran your [G]hand across the [Am]ledge, [G]
[F]Right then I f[G]elt that all my[Am] hunger had been [G]fed
[C]You cracked a [G]smile up towards the[Am] sky,[G]
[F]That thought a[G]lone will keep me h[Am]appy for my life[G]
But I ask now[F]
[F]How can angels fly when you're stil[G]l on the ground?[C]
[F]Cause I've been searching my whole [G]life for you to turn my l[C]ife around
[F]And now I don't know what to say be[G]cause the pain won't go away[C]
And I've been crying since the day that[F] you took all my goo[G]d away[C]
I wish I'd never walked away
Cause if I knew you'd jump I'd dive into that bay
And I would have saved you from the cold
Cause when you took that leap you stole my heart and soul.
So I ask now
How can angels fly when you're still on the ground?
Cause I've been searching my whole life for you to turn my life around
And now I don't know what to do 'cause I've been standing at your grave
And I've been crying since the day that you took all my good away
Your mother said you're up above
And all you wanted was a man for you to love
Well I just started breaking down
Cause the angel I've been searching for
Has left me on the ground
And now I'll die alone
