[F] [C] [G] [C]  
[Am]You came and you g[C]ave without ta[F]king, the b[C]est was yet to c[F]ome
[C]I know, for [G]I was fors[C]aken
[Am]And so I[C] kept my fingers c[F]rossed to wi[C]n at any c[F]ost
the so[C]und of wa[G]ter falling d[F]own
Bflat F C F(?) G
Knock me down, pick me up, send me in a row
[Am]Our words hung h[C]igh in the rafters, sett[F]led dow[C]n like rain[F]
Rem[C]ain h[G]appy ever af[F]ter
You packed up your bags and belongings and crept out thru the back
The sound of footprints on the ground
Your words hung high in the rafters and settled down like rain
remain happy ever after, happy ever after
