C G Am Em F C G

 

*)

C        G

a lonely road,

Am                 Em

crossed another cold state line

F               C

Miles away from those I love

G

purpose hard to find

 

C          G

while I recall

Am                 Em

all the words you spoke to me

F                  C

can’t help but wish that I was there

G

back where I’d love to be, oh yeah

 

Reff:

C    G

dear God

Am           G

the only thing I ask of you is

F                     C

to hold her when I’m not around,

G

when I’m much too far away

 

C        G

We all need

Am           G

that person who can be true to you

F              C

but I left her when I found her

G

and now I wish I’d stayed

F            G

cause I’m lonely and I’m tired

Em            Am  G  F

I’m missing you again oh no

C

once again

 

C                G

there’s nothing here

Am              Em

for me on this barren road

F                        C

there’s no one here while the city sleeps

G

and all the shops are closed

C               G

can’t help but think

Am                Em

of the times I’ve had with you

F                  C

pictures and some memories

G

will have to help me through, oh yeah

 

==Back to : Reff

 

Am       E   F               C

some search, never finding a way

Am      E    F            C

before long, they waste away

Am       E   F                      C

I found you, something told me to stay

Am     E   F             C

I gave in, to selfish ways

Dm                         G

and how I miss someone to hold

 

when hope begins to fade

 

==Back to : *), Reff
