Gm	Bb	Eb x 2   Cm x 2

Scratched out a note I wrote for you
Gm						  Bb

to wake and read

to know that I was there once

I knew that there was nothing that I could write to assure you 
Gm									 Bb					   Eb

of my return

But all the paper said when I was done is do
Gm									Bb				 Eb

do you still want me?í

because Iíd be terrified if I had to leave this place today
Gm									Bb							 Eb

We havenít saved the baby

As I said

my darling 

spring is constantly calling me
Eb							Dm

and thereís no place that Iíd rather be

I wonít be angry 
Gm	  Bb	 Dm

if you have to leave,

but I wonít be waiting
Gm	  Bb	 Dm

for that day

So donít say youíre sorry because
Gm		 Bb		 Dm

I wonít believe 

I wonít believe
Gm		 Bb		 Dm   F

Gm	Bb	Eb x 2   Cm x 2

the symbols on top of the lyrics are chords. such as "Gm" it is a chord with the root note being "G". I suggest you go to this site and look up the chords you see above the lyrics


so for that Gm chord. You would look at the letter... and click on it.. and then find the symbol which in this case would be the little 'm'. and if that is too confusing for you, just go to google and search what it is and how to play it.

Watched Anthony play it during the soundcheck.

It's in D tuning, the chord progression for the intro and verse are

Am, C, Am/F, Dsus2

A 9sus4,		 A#,			A 
e|-x-|		  e|-x-|		e|-x-|
b|-3-|		  b|-6-|		b|-5-|
g|-4-|		  g|-7-|		g|-6-|
d|-5-|		  d|-8-|		d|-7-|
a|-x-|		  a|-x-|		a|-x-|
e|-x-|		  e|-x-|		e|-x-|
Am, C, Em, G(m)

I'm pretty positive on all of this.

The chords I posted are relative to standard tuning. Just play those shapes in D tuning.

In the Daytrotter session they play in standard tuning.
I want my name to waltz right off of their tongues,
like a secret they can't keep.
