INTRO:
F#maj7 - B/F# - F# - F# (x2)
VERSE 1:
I have [F#maj7]tried but it's [B/F#]hard to f[F#]ight it[F#]
I can't just [F#maj7]watch as it [B/F#]falls ap[F#]art[F#]
If we could [F#maj7]break the m[B/F#]ould, make it [F#]in from the c[F#]old
Lose your [F#maj7]mind, never [B/F#]lose your h[F#]eart[F#]
PRE-CHORUS 1:
I don't m[Eb]ind working hard for it
I'll bend the h[F#]ands 'til the space appears
I'll move the p[Eb]ieces until we all fit
From near to [F#]far and from far to [Abm11]near[F#/Bb]
CHORUS 1:
And I [Bsus2]know that I'm going against the gr[F#]ain
And I [Abm11]know this [F#/Bb]makes no [Bsus2]sense
The ch[Bsus2]anges I've tried to [F#]make, they [Abm11]make no [F#/Bb]differ - [Bsus2]ence
But I [Bsus2]know that I'll try ag[F#]ain, although it's so h[Eb]ard
H[F#]ard, [Bsus2]hard
TRANSITION:
F#maj7 - B/F# - F# - F# (x2)
VERSE 2:
Given [F#maj7]time it'll [B/F#]finally f[F#]ocus[F#]
And in a [F#maj7]moment that's [B/F#]been and g[F#]one[F#]
And in the [F#maj7]afterglow, from my [B/F#]head to my s[F#]oul[F#]
I can [F#maj7]see all I [B/F#]have ign[F#]ored[F#]
PRE-CHORUS 2:
And I don't m[Eb]ind working hard for it
I'll bend the h[F#]ands 'til the space appears
I'll move the p[Eb]ieces until we all fit
From near to [F#]far and from far to [Abm11]near[F#/Bb]
CHORUS 2:
And I [Bsus2]know that I'm going against the gr[F#]ain
And I [Abm11]know this [F#/Bb]makes no [Bsus2]sense
The ch[Bsus2]anges I've tried to [F#]make, they [Abm11]make no [F#/Bb]differ - [Bsus2]ence
But I [Bsus2]know that I'll try ag[F#]ain, although it's so h[Eb]ard
H[F#]ard, [Bsus2]hard
TRANSITION:
F#maj7 - B/F# - F# - F# (x2)
BRIDGE:
If [C#7/Ab]life's so short then we're [F#add9]wasting time
[C#/F]Love is the last thing [F#add9]on our minds
[C#7/Ab]It's so simple[F#add9] but so hard to [C#/F]see[C#/F]
And [C#sus4]you are not a[Ebm7]lone in this
S[Bb]ense of loss and l[B9]oneliness
[C#7/Ab]Take your shoes off, [F#add9]run towards the [C#/F]sea[C#/F]
CHORUS 3:
And I [Bsus2]know that I'm going against the gr[F#]ain
And I [Abm11]know this [F#/Bb]makes no [Bsus2]sense
The ch[Bsus2]anges I've tried to [F#]make, they [Abm11]make no [F#/Bb]differ - [Bsus2]ence
But I [Bsus2]know that I'll try ag[F#]ain, although it's so h[Eb]ard
H[F#]ard, [Bsus2]hard
TRANSITION:
F#maj7 - B/F# - F# - F# (x2)
OUTRO:
I know the [F#/Bb]sun will [Am6]keep on sh[F#]ining down
As l[Am6]ong as you're around[F#]
