You Held the World in Your Arms  Idlewild

Idlewild ? You Held The World In Your Arms
Intro
[C#m] [E] [B] [A]  
[C#m] [E] [B] [A]  
Verse
[C#m]Every[B] fa[A]ce, even the one you saw yesterday
It looks different today
'Cos everything's changed since yesterday
In every possible way
Things seem different today
Not like yesterday
Pre-Chorus
[A]Is c[C#m]onsid[B]eration
[A]More[C#m] like[B] an exception
[A]of c[C#m]onsid[B]eration?

Chorus 1
[C#m]'Cos you[E] have th[B]e world [A]in your arms tonight
[C#m]And what[E] if you [B]held the[A] world in your arms?
Verse
[C#m]When [B]you[A]'re secure, do you feel much safer?
As days never change, and it's three years later
It's like your life hasn't changed,
And it's three years late, so how does it feel, to be
three years late? And watching your youth drift away
What seems different, seems
different today and what seems different, seems
different today
Pre-Chorus
[A]Is c[C#m]onsid[B]eration
[A]More[C#m] like[B] an exception
[A]of c[C#m]onsid[B]eration?
