After All  Dar Williams

[C]go[(add] ahea[G)]d, push your luck, find out how much love the w[Fmaj7]orld can hold,
once upon a time i [Dm7]had control, and r[F]eigned my s[G]oul in t[C]ight[G].
well the [C]wh[(add]ole t[G)]ruth, it's like the story of a [Fmaj7]wave unfurled,
but i held the evil [Dm7]of the world,
so [F]i stopped the tide, froze it [G]up from inside,
and it [C]fe[(add]lt li[G)]ke a winter machine that you go t[Fmaj7]hrough and then,
you catch your breath and winter s[Dm7]tarts again,
and e[F]veryone e[G]lse is spring b[C]ound[G].
and when [C]i [(add]chose[G)] to live, there was no joy, it's just a l[Fmaj7]ine i crossed
it wasn't worth the pain my [Dm7]death would have cost
so [F]i was not l[G]ost or fo[C]und.[G]
and if [C]i [(add]was t[G)]o sleep, i knew my family had more [Fmaj7]truth to tell.
and so i traveled down a [Dm7]whispering well,
to [F]know myse[G]lf through [C]the[G]m.
growing [C]up[(addG)], my mom had a room full of books, and hid [Fmaj7]away in there,
her father raging down a s[Dm7]piral stair,
till [F]he found someone, most d[G]ays his son,
and s[C]om[(add]etime[G)]s i think my father, too, was a [Fmaj7]refugee,
i know they tried to keep their [Dm7]pain from me,
they [F]could not [G]see what it was f[C]or.[G]
but now [C]i'[(add]m sle[G)]eping fine,
sometimes the truth is like a s[Fmaj7]econd chance,
i am the daughter of a [Dm7]great romance,
and [F]they are the c[G]hildren of the [C]war.[G]
(break) C (addG) Fmaj7 Dm7 F G C G
well the [C]su[(add]n ros[G)]e with so many colors, it nearly [Fmaj7]broke my heart,
it worked me over like a [Dm7]work of art,
and [F]i was a p[G]art of all t[C]hat.[G]
so go [C]ah[(add]ead p[G)]ush your luck, say what it is you gotta sa[Fmaj7]y to me,
we will push on into that [Dm7]mystery,
and it'll [F]push right back, and there are [G]worse things than [C]that[G],
cause for [C]ev[(add]ery p[G)]rice, and every penance that i c[Fmaj7]ould think of,
it's better to have [Dm7]fallen in love,
than [F]never to have [G]fallen at a[C]ll,[G]
cause when you [C]li[(add]ve in[G)] a world, well it gets into who you t[Fmaj7]hought you'd be,
and now i laugh at how the [Dm7]world changed me,
[F]i think life [G]chose me after a[C]ll[(add].[G)] [Em] [Am] [G] [C(] [add] [G)] [G] [C(add] [G)]
