Hey guys. This is one of the only song's that I like off of John Legend's new CD,
so i decided to figure out the chords. Great song from an amazing song writer. I play this on
uke, so just play with the voicing on guitar chords to fit your liking.
*Note: The D# chord voicing can be altered to your preference, i just put what i play.

[G#]It gets harder every [Cm7]day, but I can't seem to shake the [G#]pain

[C#]Function the same when you're not here
I'm [Fm]calling your name and no one's there

[G#]'Cause everybody [Cm7]knows, that nobody really [C#]knows
